I thought I could do this. I thought I could leave the war behind. 


I was wrong. I can’t do this. I can’t go to class and pretend like everything is normal. That I’m normal. I’m not. I’ve lost everything that matters to me. But I made a promise. 


And if I’m going to keep that promise, I have to focus. I have to pretend that I belong on this southern campus that drips with old money. 


And I have to pass stats. That’s where Beth comes in. 


I’m terrified she’ll see through me. That the careful lies

and easy smile won’t be enough to convince her that everything is fine. 


That she’ll see how broken I really am.  


But there’s something about her that draws me closer. A

sadness in her eyes that am powerless to resist. 


I should walk away. Protect her from the broken, darkness in

me. 


Before we both fall into something neither of us can control 



Stay focused. Get a job. Save her father’s life.  

Beth Lamont knows far too much about the harsh realities of life her gilded classmates have only read about in class. She’ll do whatever it takes to take care of her father, even if that means tutoring a guy like Noah - a guy who represents everything she hates about the war, soldiers and what the Army has done to her family.  

Noah Warren doesn’t know how to be a student. All he knows is war. But he’s going to college now to fulfill a promise and he doesn’t break his promises. Except he doesn’t count on his tutor being drop dead gorgeous and distracting as hell. One look at Beth threatens to unravel the careful lies Noah has constructed around him. 

A simple arrangement turns into something neither of them can deny. And a war that neither of them can forget could destroy them both. 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Kristen Proby, Elisabeth Naughton, Laura Kaye, Donna Grant, and introducing Meghan March and Jessica Scott.

BENEATH THESE SHADOWS by Meghan March 

The only permanent thing in my life is the ink I put on my clients. 
I drift from city to city, in and out of beds, from one tattoo shop to the next. 
Every time I start to put down roots, I rip them up. 
Until New Orleans. 
Until her. 
She’s everything I’m not.
Full of fire and life. An innocent where I’m a sinner. 
I want to consume her. Protect her. Keep her. 
But first, I have to escape from beneath these shadows.

 <b><i>"Scott delivers another sensitive, touching look at the trials and tribulations of modern military life at Fort Hood, Texas with the fourth Coming Home contemporary (after Back to You), tackling military suicides and the macho culture that contributes to them. 

Scott displays a deft touch with her main and supporting characters, and a realistic, moving development of Reza and Emily's romance. Readers will ache, cheer, and worry in all the right places."</b></i> ~Publishers Weekly (starred review) 


<b><i>He trains men for war…</i></b>

The only thing Sergeant First Class Reza Iaconelli cares about is taking care of his men and making sure they’re ready for the next combat deployment to the Surge in Iraq. Nothing will stand in the way of him taking care of his soldiers — especially not some direct commission captain who doesn’t even know how to put on her body armor. He has no idea what she’s even doing in the Army, other than getting under his skin.


<b><i>She’ll fight for his men…</i></b>


Army Captain Emily Lindberg knows one thing about the Army and that is it is terrible about taking care of its Soldiers. She may not know much about the Army but when Sergeant Iaconelli attempts to tell her how to do her job, she’ll stand up to the big NCO and dare him to be better than he thinks he is.   Behind the angry exterior, she sees a man who’s hiding — using war as a means to escape the demons from his past.


<b><i>He needs her more than he knows…</i></b>

When one of his soldiers commits suicide, Reza faces his toughest challenge yet. As his efforts to remain sober start to fail, he’ll need to find the strength to ask her for the one thing she alone can give him — and it may be more than he’s capable of.

"The sparks of attraction lead Ben and Olivia into distinctly unprofessional situations, while Olivia has to navigate the scars of her own past…a pleasant and gratifying read." ~Publishers Weekly 


She plays by the rules . . . 


Army Major Olivia Hale believes in following the process for one simple reason — the rules are simple and clear. And she’ll fight to the death to bring those who break those rules to justice. But when she runs straight into Army captain Ben Teague, she finds herself tempted, for the first time in her life, to break those rules. 


. . . and he's about to break every one of them…


Company Commander Ben Teague has a way of getting under people’s skin — he’s a smart ass but no one cares more about taking care of his troops than he does. He’s got a low tolerance for the bureaucratic rules that keep him from doing his job. When a trusted friend is brought up on charges, Ben is ready to risk his reputation and his career in his defense. 


When everything Ben believes in is exposed to be a lie, he’ll turn to the one person he last expected. And the rules she believes in just may save them both — or damn them both to hell.

 He’s always got a joke…


Army Sergeant Vic Carponti always has a joke — no matter how bleak the situation might be. He’s the guy who can make jokes in the middle of a firefight in Baghdad or when he’s getting sewn back up after getting blown up. But his sense of humor hides a fierce loyalty to the men he serves with and a devotion to his wife who he loves more than life itself. 


But there’s nothing funny about war…


But as he prepares to leave on his latest deployment into the violent throes of the Surge in Iraq, his jokes don’t seem as funny to his wife. Nicole forces herself to laugh at his redeployment antics but behind her laughter hides the darkest fear of every Army wife — that the knock on the door may be the news that destroys her world. 


They both try to make the best of the deployment but when the phone doesn’t ring for a few days, Nicole starts to worry. And when the dreaded call comes telling her he’s been hurt, she’ll move heaven and earth to be there when her husband wakes up.


"I won’t spoil it, but it will give you hope, laughter and tears!” ~ Romancing Rakes


"Buy it. Read it. Have lots of Kleenex on hand. Scott's stories are always powerful and emotional but they're honest, she doesn't jerk you around or manipulate you. The power of the stories and of the characters emotions gets into you and sweeps you away." - Bea's Book Nook




“One of the things I love so much about the Coming Home series from Jessica Scott are the characters themselves. They are unflinchingly real, raw and flawed people – ordinary folk dealing with extraordinary circumstances in the only way they know how to.” - My Written Romance
