This review is from: True Valor (Uncommon Heroes, Book 2) (Paperback)
Having read all of Ms Henderson's books I especially like the first book in this series,TRUE DEVOTION. What made this new one in her military sereis a bit unique is the love grows through the strength of the letters our couple exchange while together and apart: she serving in the Navy and he in the Air Force. That they are both some of the time on very similar missions in the same part of the world allows for an incredibly dramatic rescue that is sure to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. In true Inspirtational Romance fashion there is no intimacy, however the sexual tension is there but more importantly so is the development of love for each other with their reliance on their faith.
What I especially like about all of Ms Henderson's books is that the characters are well steeped in their own spiritual faiths or their journey toward that end. She doesn't preach to the reader and her characters are not there as a means of converting the reader. Their spirituality is who they are and as characters searching for that one true love they rely on their spirituality to make it happen. Because of this Ms Henderson's books could easily stand side by side any single title romance that was not Christian based and hold her own in the development of the couple's search for that one true love. That through this series she has chosen to have her characters be in the military and in locations right off the front page news makes it that much more enjoyable.
I look forward to reading the next installment in this series and the O'Malley series. I am assured with future offerings of excellent reads which will allow me, the reader to identify with the individual journey toward faith and love through her incredible characters and interesting plots. Her research is impeccable.
I wish more romance readers would take the time to throw off their misunderstandings about Inspirational Romances, they can start by reading the reigning Queen of Classic Inspirationals...Dee Henderson. No one in the this sub genre does it better than Dee Henderson.
