Description de l'ouvrage

21 juin 2000 Uncommon Heroes (Livre 1)
Kelly Jacobs has already paid the ultimate price for loving a warrior: She has the folded flag and the grateful thanks of a nation to prove it. Navy SEAL Joe "Bear" Baker can't ask her to accept that risk again -- even though he loves her. But the man responsible for her husband's death is back, closer than either of them realize. Kelly's in danger, and Joe may not get there in time ... This romantic suspense with its theme of God as refuge provides a firsthand look at life in the military -- where serving God and country create truly Uncommon Heroes.

After reading True Devotion and The Fire and Ice Legend, I can say with smiles that my weekend will be very relaxing and devoted to more reading of exciting stories. True Devotion gripped me all the way to the end. Not only is it inspiring, it is educative and insightful, with characters that are very real and emulative.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Move Over Brockman 1 décembre 2000
Par Jody Allen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
There is just something about a man in uniform which has romance readers' hearts all a tweeter especially if the uniform is that of a Navy SEAL. One need only look at the highly successful SEAL books by Suzanne Brockman to know what branch of the military service is the reader's favorite. Well move over Susanne Brockman, there is a new kid on the block who has created a truly stunning tale of love and devotion to God, Country and to those left behind when the missions are done. TRUE DEVOTION is the remarkably poignant story of a Navy SEAL widow and the man whose love for her is tied to her husband's death. Multnomah author, Dee Henderson, who has captivated romantic suspense readers with DANGER IN THE SHADOWS and THE NEGOGIATOR, has crafted a tale of love and devotion sure to fascinate the most cynical reader.
Navy widow and lifeguard, Kelly Jacobs has found herself in tight spots before but nothing like this. Relying on survival skills her deceased husband taught her may not be enough to save her and the young surfer as they are caught in a rip tide being drawn out to sea. As the biting cold of the water is taking its toll and darkness sets in Kelly races to keep her young charge alive and her strength up but her spirit takes the biggest toll. With the knowledge Navy SEALs take care of their own including widows, her only hope is they will be found soon by the Navy or Coast Guard. Yet, as the tide pushes them further away from the few lights still visible from the base, her thoughts drift to her husband's best friend, Navy SEAL Lt. Joe "Bear" Baker. As her faith and spirit are tested to the limit it seems she has some unfinished business about her husband's death and her growing feelings for "Bear" Baker. Will he find her in time to explore them or is it her time to join her husband?
In TRUE DEVOTION, Ms. Henderson has provided readers with a uniquely plotted story using the "second chance at love" theme; a theme sadly lacking in today's romance offerings. The fact Dee Henderson does it with a crisp professional voice makes TRUE DEVOTION a must read even if you have never read an Inspirational book. Readers are sure to become loyal fans of Ms Henderson's work after reading the first chapter of Kelly's intense personal introspection: truly incredible writing sure to make the reader's heart ache at the intensity of her feelings. Have the tissues ready!. Her impressive knowledge of the workings of Navy SEALS never takes over the story but then she never lets the spirituality of her books become preachy either. This is what makes a Dee Henderson novel something very special. If you are a fan of Navy SEAL stories, you must read TRUE DEVOTION, a story with depth and emotion far surpassing the best of Suzanne Brockman's Navy SEALs. Dee Henderson is truly one of Romance's rising stars.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Riveting from page one 15 septembre 2000
Par Leila McGrath - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I recently discovered Dee Henderson in this novel, and what a discovery! The book opens with a woman (Kelly) floating in the ocean, wondering if she will become a victim like her husband, wondering if the new man in her life (Joe), a SEAL, will rescue her. Flashbacks intertwine with the scene, as the author takes her time entering into the commencement of the story itself. Kelly is falling for Joe, but isn't sure if she has the strength to marry another SEAL. Joe's intensely in love with her, but knows her concerns. Meanwhile the man responsible for her husband's death (Raider) is out to finish off Joe's platoon, putting Joe's life in grave danger. Joe and Kelly struggle to make a decision concerning their relationship in the midst of constant distractions. In the end, Kelly herself is kidnapped by the feared Raider and thought to be dead. This event alone changes Joe's life forever. A must-read book, the best I've seen in a while. Henderson's an amazing writer, and knows what she's talking about. Looking forward impatiently for Book Two!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Uplifting 29 juin 2000
Par Harriet Klausner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
During a rescue in the Pacific off San Diego, lifeguard Kelly Jacobs knows she is in trouble as the dangerous riptide threatens to drown her. As her life flashes by, she thinks back to her spouse, deceased Navy SEAL Nick who died in a training accident. She also reflects on how her feelings for Nick's best friend and fellow SEAL Joe "Bear" Baker changed into a deep abiding love and that she no longer is angry with God for taking away her beloved spouse.

In spite of the impossible probability, Kelly expects Bear to rescue her from almost certain death. He saves her life, but she blows their friendship when she blurts out she loves him. However, before Bear and Kelly can even begin to work out their feelings of love to one another and the guilty betrayal they undergo towards Nick's memory, they must deal with the person who murdered her husband.

TRUE DEVOTION is a stirring inspirational military romance that will encourage readers to deal with grief caused by the death of a loved one. The lead characters, especially Kelly, seems so genuine, most readers will feel Dee Henderson modeled her after their own battles with grief and love. Ms. Henderson writes from the spirit and it shows.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Romance off balance with Navy SEAL suspense 26 août 2001
Par Stephanie Johnson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Dee Henderson gives an in-depth insight into the lives of the Navy SEALs and their families. I enjoyed the book, but often found myself skimming through the lengthy sections focused only on SEAL operations. As compared to her other books (Danger in the Shadows, The Guardian...) the characters were not as well developed nor was the romance. In general Henderson is a wonderful Inspirational Romance writer, but I would stick to her other books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic Series! 7 juillet 2005
Par Janan Duncan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I was given this series by a friend... and was a bit skeptical. I love Dee Henderson but am not a big military fan (in my reading anyway). I wondered if it would 'speak' to me! Boy ..did it ever! I was very entertained but also educated in what goes on to keep our country a safe place...I have a very different view of military people..and as always..my faith was strengthened...what a package! Again..you'll want the whole set so you can go right from one book to the next..great reading!
