Format: Hardcover
This was an excellent story of love healing old wounds. Catherine was a women with no self-esteem after a disaster of a marriage. She meets Morgan at an arranged dinner with friends, and finds another person who was scared, although Morgan's scars came from war. Over time they see more and more of each other, and love blooms quickly. However, something is holding Morgan back and it becomes heartbreakingly apparent what that is. Just another spoil of war. This is a very romantic story,and you really feel for both characters. My heart bled for Morgan, suffering from a disability from his war wounds that no man wants to suffer, especially when he falls for Catherine. With time and love, they heal each other and learn to live again. I recommend this book highly.

Morgan had been a POW in Vietnam and returned with emotional and physical scars. He was neither arrogant or cocky and truly cared about Catherine from the beginning. I was glad to see a story that showed what Vietnam Vets had to deal with.

Catherine on the other hand was suspicious, cruel, prissy and downright unpleasant. She overreacted to everything Morgan said and did and was always lashing out at him even though she had no evidence that he was being anything but nice.

They met at a dinner at mutual friends. He asked her "I guess there's no man in your life?", a normal question when you meet someone you're interested in. Her response "I suppose you think Kay and Denzil only invited me to make up a four for dinner because they felt sorry for me! Is that it?"

Morgan: "Do you want to run that by me again?"

Catherine: "I am not a lonely old woman! If I live alone it's because I choose to do so, not because no red-blooded male has asked me to join him! Strange as it may seem I find my own company quite satisfying, thank you! I don't need the kind of sexual stimuli most men consider indispensable!"

This was the ongoing attitude of Catherine throughout.

When Morgan sent her flowers she decided he had some ulterior motive.

When he told her she was beautiful she decided he had some ulterior motive.

When he asked her to go out to a restaurant she decided he had some ulterior motive.

I really can't understand why he remained attracted to her and by the end figured he should dump her on her rear!

This is one of those HP that remains stuck in my mind and there are very few of them. The characters are so real and human, and it is so refreshing to find and read those good Harlequins from 20 years ago. This is a story about real love between two people who have been hurt and their struggle to find happiness. So sweet.
