A PRIOR ENGAGEMENT
A PRIOR ENGAGEMENT (4.5) by Karina Bliss: Attorney Juliet Browne is shocked to learn the man she loved — and believed died in Afghanistan — is actually alive and coming home. New Zealand SAF officer Lee Davis proposed to Juliet before his last tour, but she turned him down. So how will Juliet explain that she has his engagement ring? Believing Lee has amnesia, Jules agrees to his impromptu airport proposal and then agonizes over what to tell him — until she realizes that Lee remembers her rejection and has been pretending otherwise to get even. In this heartwarming tale of learning to live again, Lee’s PTSD seems quite realistic and the tension between the couple is wonderfully depicted.
