I'll Be Home for Christmas is an emotion-filled, HOT, contemporary military romance by Jessica Scott

I began reading Jessica Scott's military romance series, Coming Home, this fall. Not for review, but just because I really liked the sound of her books. After the first book, I was hooked as the reality conveyed in Scott's military romance is engrossing. No, this isn't a series where just because you're a soldier, you're one step below a kryptonite-free Superman. This is a series where the characters are heroes (and heroines), because of the fact they don't have super strength or genetic engineering - just a tremendous amount of faith, love, and sense of duty.

The holiday-themed novella I'll Be Home For Christmas (book 2.6 in the series) focuses on perennial jokester Army Sergeant Vic Carponti and his wife Nicole. While Vic is away on duty Nicole serves as a CID officer, but the tours of duty don't seem to end and her loneliness without Vic builds up.

When the reader was introduced to this couple in Because of You (book 1), it seemed as though their marriage was inviolate with the strength of their passion. But beneath the surface, perhaps there were some telling cracks that began to appear.

Without any glamour, Scott shows us what military romance really is and the devotion and trust needed to make these career marriages work (or not). She's a fabulous writer and (without any spoilers intended) this novella is one that shares the true holiday spirit of love.

Jessica Scott is an author to watch and she writes from real experience as a career army officer, mother, and wife of an NCO. Do purchase Because of You (book 1), Until There Was You (book 2), Anything For You (book 2.5)I'll Be Home For Christmas (book 2.6) and mark your calendars for January when book four, Back to You will be released. (Back to You will tell the story I've been waiting for about Army Captain Trent Davila, his wife Laura, and their seemingly perfect yet very trouble marriage.)

To recap, I highly recommend that you add I'll Be Home For Christmas and the entire Coming Home series to your bookshelf as it's an incredibly beautiful and moving read that's fantastically HOT too.

There's nothing in the world Army Sergeant Vic Carponti loves more than his wife and his country. Smart-mouthed and easy tempered, he takes everything as a joke . . . except his promise to come home to his wife, Nicole, for Christmas. As he prepares to leave for his latest deployment into Iraq, Vic will do everything he can to shield his beautiful, supportive wife from the realities of war . . . and from his own darkest fears.

As a career army wife, Nicole Carponti knows just what to expect from her husband's tour of duty: loneliness, relentless worry, and a seemingly endless countdown until the moment Vic walks through the door again. But when the unthinkable happens, Nicole and Vic's bond is tested like never before and changes everything they believe to be true about the power of love and the simple beauty of being home for the holidays.
