A True Hero - Raymon Zussman - Congressional Medal of Honor winner. #romance #amreading

I thought I'd do a flippant post about heroes. After all, every book has one.
I even claim one of my ex-military men in my Heroes of Westhorpe Ridge had been nominated for the highest order the United States can give.

Research first. I went to this site

It's humbling. Here's one man's story from  the site. It happened in WWll

Raymond Zussan was a second lieutenant in the 765th Tank  Battalion.

On 12 September 1944, 2d Lt. Zussman was in command of 2 tanks operating with an infantry company in the attack on enemy forces occupying the town of Noroy le Bourg, France. At 7 p.m., his command tank bogged down. Throughout the ensuing action, armed only with a carbine, he reconnoitered alone on foot far in advance of his remaining tank and the infantry. Returning only from time to time to designate targets, he directed the action of the tank and turned over to the infantry the numerous German soldiers he had caused to surrender. He located a road block and directed his tanks to destroy it. Fully exposed to fire from enemy positions only 50 yards distant, he stood by his tank directing its fire. Three Germans were killed and 8 surrendered. Again he walked before his tank, leading it against an enemy-held group of houses, machinegun and small arms fire kicking up dust at his feet. The tank fire broke the resistance and 20 enemy surrendered. Going forward again alone he passed an enemy-occupied house from which Germans fired on him and threw grenades in his path. After a brief fire fight, he signaled his tank to come up and fire on the house. Eleven German soldiers were killed and 15 surrendered. Going on alone, he disappeared around a street corner. The fire of his carbine could be heard and in a few minutes he reappeared driving 30 prisoners before him. Under 2d Lt. Zussman's heroic and inspiring leadership, 18 enemy soldiers were killed and 92 captured.

After reading that, how can I be flippant? The answer is a I can't.  

All I can do is tell you about my hero, Adam Montgomery.
He's a former military surgeon who got caught up in a firefight and took out enemy snipers.  
You can read to Adam's exploits, and how he finds love when he retires from the Army Medical Corp  

TaglineTwelve years ago, Adam Montgomery walked away and left Mandy pregnant. Dare she trust him with her heart again?


Twelve years ago, Mandy Devlin moved away from her friends and family. If she returned in the next ten years or told anyone who fathered her baby, her boyfriend’s great-aunt would bankrupt her family. She’s a single mom who dreams of her lost love and a spanking. When she’s finally free to return to Westhorpe Ridge, the last person she expects to see is Adam—the man she loved and lost so long ago.
Dr. Adam Montgomery doesn’t know he has a son. Thanks to his great-aunt’s will, he has nine months to find a bride or he loses Montgomery Hall and the fifteen million dollars she left him. Although he seduces Mandy on his first night home, he still believes she betrayed him twelve years ago. No way would he marry a woman like her.
As Valentine’s Day looms, someone tries to kill Mandy. Is Adam trying to get rid of them? Or can Mandy trust him to protect them?
