"Jenna's Cowboy" by Sharon Gillenwater

What Revell says...

This charming romance is Book #1 in the Callahans of Texas series, and brings readers a touching love story set in beautiful west Texas. Jenna Callahan has a young son and rewarding work on her father's ranch. She's content. But she never expected to see Nate Langley back in town--the first guy she noticed, the one her father sent away all those years ago. And she never thought the attraction they felt would be as strong as ever. Jenna's cowboy has some healing of his own to do, though, after two tours of duty in the armed forces. With the help of good friends, strong faith, and a loving family, he hopes to put the horrors of the past behind him--and become the man Jenna deserves. With an emphasis on simple acts of love, Jenna's Cowboy gives romance readers what they want most: a love story with a Texas touch.

What I liked...

Sharon Gillenwater has created an engaging and gentle romance while painlessly educating readers about the serious condition of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. She’s also provided a glimpse into how people heal: through compassion and understanding, time, and the healing touch of a caring community. A wonderful book that honors our soldiers and opens our eyes to the lingering problems they might endure as they adjust to civilian life.
