ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Not even Cheryl Wyatt’s closest friends would dream that this sweet, shy intercessor plots mayhem during announcements at church. She is a Registered Nurse turned stay-at-home-mom, wife and writer who loves Jesus with all of her heart.
Joyful chaos rules her home, and she delights in the stealth moments God gives her to write. She stays active in her church and in her laundry room. She is convinced that having been born on a Naval base on Valentines Day destined her to write Inspirational Military Romance.
Cheryl loves to laugh and to make others laugh, so she often plans comedic moments for her defenseless characters in spite of their grumbling. She says it’s payback for when they refuse to obey the plots she’s set out before them.

ABOUT THE BOOK
A Strong-Willed Heart
Trauma nurse Kate Dalton can handle any challenge—except love. The combat veteran dreams of settling down, but heartbreak is one risk she won’t take. Then a chance encounter opens her heart to a masked stranger…who might not be a stranger after all! Caleb Landis, the army medic behind the disguise, has always admired Kate, even though she only saw him as her best friend’s brother. What will it take for Kate to discard her fears and discover the man she’s always hoped to unmask?
Eagle Point Emergency: Saving lives—and losing their hearts— in a small Illinois town
My thoughts and giveaway:
I always enjoy reading Love Inspired Romance stories. They are a quick read and always well done.
The Nurse’s Secret Suitor was no exception.
The first chapter brings you into the drama as Kate is hit with the news that her parents are getting divorced. This happens in the middle of a wedding reception.
As she is being washed away in the emotion of this news a masked stranger comes a long and comforts her.
Throughout the book this benevolent bandit continues to bring Kate hope just when she needs it most.
Your heart will be drawn to Caleb (the masked man) who definitely cares for Kate even though she doesn’t see who he really is.
The questions in my mind kept me flipping pages: When will Kate find out about Caleb? What will she do when she finds out? Can they find a compromise and meet in the middle so they can have a life together?
You will have to read the book to find out 🙂
