When Jane Lonnigan refused to marry him, Frank Dawson got the hell out of Pike's Run and joined the army. As he took risk after risk, hoping someone would put him out of his misery, he consequently rose in ranks. Now he's a First Lieutenant stationed at Fort Robertson, a crack shot, and the main communicator to the Chipsa tribe.

When Frank realizes Jane has become a fixture of the settlement he is a part of, he sets out to guard himself from being twice a fool. But as life swirls around them, Frank can't help but return to her again and again.

A mistake causes Frank to hurt Jane and make her believe all hope is lost. She runs home, needing the welcoming arms of her family. When Frank learns what he's done, he realizes he's been a fool. He races after her, intent on winning her back. Can he mend her heart and have her as his wife? Or has he ruined everything?

Praise For The Series

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Another Great Addition to the Series. I truly enjoyed The Miller Brides, book 5 in Kara O'Neal's "Pikes Run" series, so when the opportunity came to read The Soldier's Love, I couldn't pass it up! Kara has a lovely way of weaving details, adding tension and fleshing out characters that pulls you into her stories and keeps you turning pages. If you love a great Historical Romance, check out The Soldier's Love...but don't stop there! Read the entire series.Amazon reviewer.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "Couldn't Put it Down. I put off reading this book after it was recommended to me. I thought it would be the western version of regency romance. Boy was I wrong! The characters are well developed and REAL. The setting is so present in the story that I want to visit Pike's Run." Amazon reviewer.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "This is a wonderful story, and a true look into the heart of a woman. Emma endures so much for her love of Kyle. She is the perfect heroine as every trial builds her and makes her stronger. Kyle, the hunky farmer, doesn't have an easy time either, and it's enjoyable to watch his emotions unfold. All the characters you meet are fascinating, and I'm thrilled to see this series revolves around the town so we can see more of these lovable people. I definitely recommend this book!" Goodreads reviewer

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"My favorite yet! I, too, became frustrated with the characters, but I feel it was because I was so engrossed in their relationship. I think we all, at times, hesitate to share our true feelings. The Soldier's Love brought Jane and Frank to life for me! Definitely recommend this one!! Amazon REVIEWER

When Sherry Forrester catches his eye—who wouldn't want her after stumbling upon her skinny dipping?—he does the hardest thing ever and waits for her to choose him to warm her sheets for a night. And only one night. For Luke made a long-ago vow never to let love ensnare him.
