Book two of War Girls

German-occupied Brussels, Belgium, April 1915

Judith Goddard is hiding in plain sight. A dual citizen with family ties to Belgian royalty and the British military, she works as a Red Cross nurse in a German hospital, learning what she can, ever fearful her true allegiance will be discovered.

British Expeditionary Force Captain Michael Lawrence is on a mission to rescue the daughter of his mentor. He doesn't expect to find a strong beautiful woman in place of the naïve girl whose love he rejected years earlier.

Jude is shocked when Michael turns up in her hospital, wounded and in German uniform. Though he broke her heart, she agrees to flee Belgium with him—she has information about an imminent attack that she must deliver to the British War Office, before it's too late.

Posing as a married couple, Jude and Michael journey to the border, in constant danger of discovery—and of giving in to their mutual passion…

I have to say I have enjoyed both books in this series so far.  Both of them have heroines who fight for what they believe in even if it means being in harm’s way.

Jude has been working hard at keeping people healthy and her identity secret.  She’s shocked when a man from her past is sent to remove her from the place she loves but realizes that she is in more danger than she thought.  I liked her willingness to stay in the war zone even though others of her station would have run away but I also liked her ability to see things as they were and act accordingly.  She’s not a wallflower or afraid of being killed but this man has the ability to destroy her in a way that no one else ever could.  She tries very hard to resist her feelings for him but knows that he has always held her heart in his hands even after his behavior.

Michael was something else.  He’s always loved Jude but did what he thought was right and ended up betraying her trust plus breaking her heart.  This is a man driven by duty but when he has to save her from a potential nightmare he’s forced to admit that he wants her every way he can have her.  This is the woman for him and no one else will ever mean as much.  I liked his sense of duty but also was pissed off for both of them as we find out what happened to drive them apart.

Once again Julie has drawn me in to the war with a great story of a strong woman getting the support and love she deserves from an equally strong man.  I love how the women in these stories are as strong as the men they love.  It makes me very happy to recommend this series to people.  🙂

Oh…  Julie…  hopefully you will be at RT in New Orleans so I can gush to you in person again.   😉
