Cheryl Wyatt


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.

Prior to publication, six of Cheryl’s manuscripts placed in ten RWA Contests. Two of Cheryl’s stories also placed First in ACFW’s Noble Theme Contest 2005 (Contemporary Romance Category), as well as ACFW‘s Genesis Contest 2006 (Mystery/Suspense/Thriller Category).

She currently writes for Love Inspired. Her Wings of Refuge Series, about a team of USAF Pararescue Jumpers and the ladies who capture their hearts, can be purchased anywhere books are sold.


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:

In this third Eagle Point Emergency book, we get better acquainted with Kate Dalton, a former drill sergeant who seeks perfection in all she does. She's left military life and due to circumstances with her parents, has no desire to have a close relationship with anyone who chooses to don a uniform for Uncle Sam. We also get reintroduced to Caleb Landis, whose goal is to make it into Ranger school as a means to prove to himself that he is nothing like the father who abandoned him.

I really liked the beginning of the story where Caleb arrives dressed as a black bandit and comforts and encourages Kate. I did find it a wee bit far-fetched, though, as the story went along that Kate was unable to figure out the bandits identity. The scene of the bandit's final appearance is one of my favorites in the book, so it's worth reading the story just to get to that.

While we see many of the previous characters in this series, this book is pretty much Caleb and Kate...with Caleb's niece-to-be Tia making some memorable appearances. The girl does her best to tickle the funny bone throughout the story.

I've read all of the books in the series thus far and I've really enjoyed getting to know the characters in each one. I feel like the residents of Eagle Point have become my friends. If you're looking for a sweet, romantic read then look no further than Eagle Point. You'll find great characters with great stories ... and you'll fall in love with both!
