An alien planet, unjust society, rebellion, war and its aftermath all come into quick sharp focus in Rebecca York's short story Hero's Welcome. The parallels with present day wars, or those of the past, are immediate too. Wounded people, wounded land, and those special wounds of friendships torn apart take center stage in a tale of fast action, tense excitement, and genuine love.

The prosthesis on the stump of a young man's leg causes constant pain. But his memories might pain him more--not guilt for the blood on his hands, nor pride in his military prowess, but a part of himself that never used to exist, something that makes him different from who he wanted to be. Meanwhile the girl he knew has lost home and family. She shies away from his touch and yet has sacrificed all she had left to find him.

In the past their differences didn't seem to matter--she the master's daughter and he born to serve. But present roles reverse and war maims more than bodies making it hard to believe in hope.

A swift story well-told, Hero's Welcome reveals different kinds of heroes and different welcomes, while two broken people learn to trust each other's love and face the future as one whole.

Disclosure: I got lucky. This book was offered free.

For a short story, this sci-fi romance packed in a good plot, characters I enjoyed from the start and a little bit of creative world building about two human races trying to control the same planet.

Link, an embittered permanently injured ex-soldier, was from the lower class Dorre race that overthrew the upper class race and now he has arrived to claim his war prize- a large Farlian estate. But then he finds one of the hated Farlians in residence and this one was the one to reject him as a lover when they were younger because he was not good enough. He learns that he was not the only one changed by war when he hears Kasiminda's story and their time together becomes a time of healing.

This was a good short story Sci-Fi Romance that I can recommend to those who enjoy the genre.

I've read an enjoyed all of Ms. York's Decorah Security books so I decided to give some of her other books a try. I have to say that i'm glad that I did. It was an enjoyable read for a chilly, lazy afternoon. I plan to eventually read all of her books, and I know I won't be disappointed. With all of the new authors out there, it was really refreshing to read an ebook that I didn't have to keep editing with my brain while trying to figure out what the author was trying to say.

HERO'S WELCOME is an enjoyable science fiction romance from Rebecca York. While short, Ms. York creates a world that is detailed and realistic for the reader. The hero is a wounded warrior, the heroine his childhood sweetheart whose family was on the losing side of the war. After being abused after the war, she tracks him down. Together, they learn to accept their differences and overcome their fears. While a quick read, this story is well worth the time.

Civil war on an alien planet, humans from the same earth but generations a part. LOVED the story. The hero and heroine meet again. Afraid of the changes in themselves caused by the war. Good ending. But I always want more.

I like rebecca York's work. I want to read everything she has. I am not usually a big fan of romance novels but the Sci Fi / Fantasy / Paranormal stuff makes it very enjoyable for me. Try this story I don't think you will be disappointed.
