Cheryl Wyatt


Born Valentine’s Day on a Navy base, Cheryl Wyatt writes military romance. Her Steeple Hill debuts earned RT Top Picks plus #1 and #4 on eHarlequin's Top 10 Most-Blogged-About-Books, lists including NYT Bestsellers. Cheryl loves interacting with her readers and can be found almost daily on Facebook.

Word from the Author:
I do regular giveaways including a Kindle for every 250 people who join (aka "Like") my Facebook author page: and I'd LOVE for word to spread about that. We have a lot of fun there as I ask for frequent reader input on current books, with helpers being mentioned in the acknowledgments and fun stuff like that.


Combat doctor Ian Shupe returns home from overseas with his most important mission: to raise his little girl. But Ian's a single dad, and working at Eagle Point's trauma center means having to find child care. When bighearted, struggling lodge owner Bri Landis offers babysitting in exchange for construction work, Ian accepts. He vows to keep his emotional distance from Bri, yet can't deny that his daughter is blossoming under her tender care. But is he ready to believe that his heart's deepest prayer may finally be answered?


This is the first Cheryl Wyatt book for me and I can say I truly enjoyed it. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book. Bri - trying to recover from an emotionally abusive relationship, Ian - a combat doc with a very busy work schedule trying to fit into another role of single dad, and Tia - Ian's young daughter just trying to find security and assurance with Ian after basically being abandoned by her mother. A lot of secondary characters niggled their way into my heart as well.

Cheryl does a really good job with the character's expressing their emotions. It was heart-wrenching to see that effect that Tia's mother has on her, and the clinginess and defiance attests well to the emotions she was going through. Bri and Ian's hesitance to really let themselves fall in love when you factor in Bri's prior abusive relationship and the traumatic divorce that Ian experiences.

I enjoyed this visit to Eagle Point immensely and plan to go back and read the first story in the series, The Doctor's Devotion, and I look forward to seeing what else Cheryl comes up with in this series.

My thanks to the author for generously providing a copy for review.
