For today’s recommendation in our historical month we wanted to do something a little bit different… HIS VERY OWN GIRL is a standalone about WWII. It’s a beautiful love story with amazing characters that will touch your heart. Very emotional, and definitely worth you taking a look. Check out an exclusive excerpt the author shared with Under the Covers when this book released last year, here.
A sensual historical romance set during World War II about a female British civilian pilot and the American paratrooper medic who opens her heart.
After war took the lives of Lulu Davies’s parents and her fiancé, she promised herself she would guard her heart carefully and concentrate on her great love–flying the biggest and best airplanes as a British civilian pilot. She’s content to strive for greatness in the skies, and dance with a few GIs on the way.
Brawny, quiet American medic Joe Weber signed up with the paratroopers to escape his checkered past. The first test of his medical skill takes place when he rushes to the scene of a plane crash. He’s stunned to come face-to-face with a spirited, dark-haired beauty.
Their flirtation breaks all of Lulu’s rules, but dance by dance, week by week, walk by walk, she falls in love with this honest, vulnerable man on the run from his demons. The lovers only have one night together before Joe departs for the front lines.
Lulu distracts herself work and the friendships of her colleagues, but she can’t get the handsome medic out of her head. Only time and hope will tell if her love will return unharmed, and if they can overcome their pasts to forge a beautiful life together in peace-time.
Battlefield medics rank among the quiet heroes of military service. Because parachute regiments dropped into surrounded positions, their medics were often embedded with the same companies. Others were frequently moved, never having the chance to bond with men they treated.Female pilots from around the world flocked to Britain to “do their bit” with the Air Transport Auxiliary. These selfless civilians freed countless pilots from ferrying duties. The organization was the first British agency to offer equal wages for men and women, yet the ATA’s contribution to the war effort has been largely forgotten.So many men and women plunged into marriage when the world seemed destined for destruction. I hope this book does justice to the lovers and the unsung heroes of World War II.
