“Don’t you just love it when a book you buy on a whim becomes one of your favourites?” ~ Under the Covers

Staff Sergeant Ray Cruz needs a fiancee, or at least pretend to have a fiancee to get himself out of a sticky situation involving an Afghan Warlord and his daughter. So he finds one with the aid of photo shop and a picture of one of his older sister’s friends marine biologist Grace Kim. When the media suddenly goes in to a frenzy about her war hero fiancee being injured Grace doesn’t know what is going on…she has no fiancee. Determined to sort out the problem Grace visits her supposed fiancee in hospital finding Cruz in a hospital bed missing a leg and with a brain injury that leaves it difficult to communicate. Although brought together in an unlikely circumstances Cruz and Grace being to build a friendship through, a friendship that feels like so much more.

Don’t you just love it when a book you buy on a whim becomes one of your favourites? That is what happened when I picked up His Road Home. Although this was a fairly short read, it made an impression with it’s moving and sweet romance that wasn’t just your typical boy meets girl scenario.

The romance between Cruz and Grace wasn’t an instant conflagration their chemistry sparked when they first met and slowly smoldered and grew as they became closer and closer until it finally went up in flames. This slow building romance is one of the aspects I love most about this book, they had time to build a friendship and mutual respect that made the over all relationship feel more intense and rich.

Anna Richland has created some thing special in His Road Home, it’s a contemporary romance without the typical hero and heroine that offers a beautiful and touching, as well as sexy story that kept me glued to my kindle screen right to the very last week. This may be my first Anna Richland book, but it won’t be my last.


About Anna Richland

Anna lives with her quietly funny Canadian husband and two less quiet children in a century-old house in Seattle. She writes paranormal romantic suspense and military romance in the spaces left after dealing with kids, laundry, crazy volunteer commitments and internet distractions.

Her lifelong passion for new places (and a need to pay tuition) led her to become an army officer en route to visiting four continents and twenty-two countries. Now the places she goes are more likely to be field trips than trips to the field, but it's still fun.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
