Love In War is the first book in the Battle Of Hearts series. This real-life inspired story follows Samantha Matthews, the woman who falls in love with a soldier while he is deployed to Iraq. As they face issues of his re-adapting to being stateside, PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury, their once solid foundation begins to crumble.
Samantha has been married to Kevin for eight years and they share two small children, but the love is gone from their marriage. Samantha craves passion and romance but has settled into a familiar routine between raising her children and being a housewife.
When she reconnects online with Ryan Benson, an old high school friend, sparks fly. Ryan is deployed to Iraq, and their only way of communicating is on the computer and phone. With each passing conversation between them, Ryan and Samantha fall deeply in love. They have to wait another five months until he comes home for R&R to see each other for the first time in eight years.
While Samantha struggles with her husband finding out about her online affair and passing the days until her love comes home, Ryan faces war every day, knowing there is a chance he may not make it home at all. When he does make it back, they spend the most amazing and steamy two weeks together. Even then, they face trials and challenges because of his difficulty adapting to the changes in his life.
When Ryan returns to Iraq, will the love they share be strong enough to survive until he comes home for good?
