Heroine, Alice, is based on the women of the real-life Cultural Support Team, who proudly served the US Military.
After a bomb blast ended her career with the military, Alice Liddell arrives at a veterans’ retreat in hopes of healing. The last person she expects to stumble upon is pro-football quarterback Micah Palmer. Even more surprising, she forms a friendship with this fellow lost soul.
Since his injury a year ago, Micah Palmer has struggled with addiction and recovery. He agrees to volunteer at the veterans’ retreat for good PR but after meeting Alice, his attention shifts from his own needs to helping her. When he begins training with Alice for the approaching football season, he discovers the challenge benefits them both.
While Micah works to break down her defenses, Alice is determined never to lose her heart. But the charming football star might be the one man strong enough to ensure she no longer has to take on life alone
“Lyrical, emotional and utterly romantic, Home Field reminds us of what’s most important in life: home, family and most of all, love.”
~Karen Rock, award-winning romance author of A League of Her Own
“You will see yourself in this book, it is SO relate-able on how our emotions and hearts put us at war with ourselves. The romance and heartwarming sweetness of the characters in this book provides is a great snuggle-with-a-blanket read that leaves you sighing with a smile.” -Amazon Review
“Home Field was one of the best books that I have read this year. Laurie Winter captures her audiences heart and attention right from the very moment they flip the first page.” -Amazon Review
“What a heartwarming, engaging story! I’ll admit, my “go-to” genre is mystery or thriller, but this story pulled me in. AFTER ALL isn’t your typical romance; there are plenty of other issues layered in. Serious ones. Social issues like a teen pregnancy, troubled teens, family abuse, and more prove this. The author addressed these issues with sensitivity and authenticity, which is a real plus for me. The characters were engaging, their actions and thoughts expressed made me feel a range of emotions, from laughing to crying. And of course, there’s the romance. A serviceman returning home, dreaming of starting a family. A cop who’s devoted to her career goal of becoming a DEA agent. How will they ever get together? It’s complicated, but oh so good to travel along on their journey to find a way.
This novel is book three in the WARRIORS OF THE HEART series and definitely worth the reading experience. They all are! Well done!” -Amazon Review
