— “Lorhainne Eckhart is a very prolific and talented writer. Get to know her work, you won’t regret it.” – Karen
— “The focus on a women taken was a very classic ideal because it was set in a military arena. YOU have to read these books, but make sure that you have e box of tissues because you will need them.” – Faybe
— “Read this and the sequel in one sitting! The storyline was riveting and I found myself really caring about the characters. Looking forward to reading more of this author’s works!” – Songbird
— “The series is worth reading, but it’s hard to read also. Although I agree with the reviewer that the main character was hard to like I feel he needs to be defended also. He was who he was, even if we didn’t like him or like his views of women. I don’t have anyone in the military but I would assume that for a man to be the person that is responsible for a whole ship of people that he would have to be a very special person one that is different from most people. The next book in this series is so so hard to read and it places him in an even worse light, but again I must say its a very good story and one that I believe sheds an important light on an issue that usually falls under the heading of out of sight, out of mind. I wait impatiently for the third installment in this series to see where the author takes these characters and this issue, this book is worth the time and money to read” – Reviewer – Sherry
— “Great love story. I couldn’t put it down. Living near Norfolk we hear about lots of navy stories. This one was riveting for start to finish.” — Reviewer – Deborah
