When it comes to holidays, November offers a couple that oddly enough are both celebrated for the same reason- a reminder to be thankful. One, Veteran’s Day, asks us to remember our military vets and be thankful for what they have done and the other, Thanksgiving, is a call to overall thankfulness and family gathering. So books that scream to me the thankfulness theme for these two holidays are on the agenda.
Here’s to Our Military Veterans! Reading Recommends
A Big Thank you to All who Served Their Country
First up, this is a no brainer since it combines both a military and thanksgiving theme.
Honestly, the whole series of novellas is chalk full of veterans and their different routes to romance so check them all
out and mix and match the ones that sound the most interesting since all, but two work as standalones.
A Marine of Plenty by Heather Long, #17 Always a Marine, Contemporary Romance
June Gray’s Disarm series,
Stacy Gail’s Starting From Scratch and
Juliana Stone’s The Christmas He Came Home
are also good Contemporary Romances with Veteran Hero
Next, a military vet with severe PTSD returning back to his small town home.
The Telling by Eden Winters, #1 The Telling, M/M Contemporary Romance
Also consider, Tyler Robbins’ Beyond Honor and
SJD Peterson’s Beyond Duty
for more M/M Contemporary Romance with military vet heroes.
What about a military vet in history? No VA hospitals and counselors then; just the love of a patient woman.
The Captive by Grace Burrowes, #1 Captive Hearts, Historical Romance
I would also suggest Jo Beverley’s Three Heroes and several other of her Rogue series books,
Mary Balogh’s The Survivor’s Club series and
Carla Kelley’s The Admiral’s Pennyless Bride
along with many others from her backlist for more Historical Romance with military veteran heroes.
Let’s not leave out the Paranormal Romance niche either.
Even shifters do their bit for country and some come home from war damaged.
Actually this whole series offers a team of shifter heroes who came back from the war needing a bit of loving.
Kodiak’s Claim by Eve Langlais, #1 Kodiak Point, Paranormal Romance
JD Tyler’s Alpha Pack series, Paige Tyler’s X-Ops series,
Terry Spear’s SEAL wolves are all good bets for Paranormal Military Vets.
