She’s a survivor of the front lines of politics. He’s a wounded soldier returning home from the battlefield. Can they place their trust in the power of love?
Nobody plays the role of perfect politician’s daughter better than quiet, respectable math teacher Brooke Ellstein. But she won’t be caught swimming with the sharks again, not after the son of a wealthy donor sinks his teeth into her and gets away with it. Still, political connections have their perks, such as heading up the governor’s “Support Our Troops” pen-pal initiative—and getting first dibs on the smoking-hot sergeant whose picture shakes her right down to her goody-two-shoes.
When corresponding with sweet, classy Brooke, Shane Develen instinctively hides his commando tattoos and blue-collar roots—and he can tell that she’s hiding something, too. But Shane knows he’s gained her trust when Brooke gives him a blisteringly sexy photo. Then he’s injured in an ambush and a fellow soldier posts the snapshot online. Overnight, Brooke’s reputation turns to ashes. Even though he’s totally wrong for her, Shane shows up on Brooke’s doorstep, determined to set things right—and discovers that right or wrong has nothing on the chemistry they share.

“Wendy S. Marcus writes believable characters and tons of emotion.”—USA Today bestselling author Sarah Morgan
“A unique story with emotional twists and turns on the road to happily ever after.”—New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips
“Loving You Is Easy is a pleasing blend of sexiness and emotionally charged conflict that kept me turning the pages. Wendy S. Marcus doesn’t shy away from tough subject matter; she embraces it in a real, visceral way that tugs on the reader’s emotions and has you rooting for the characters not just to succeed but to heal, physically and emotionally. The story is unique, the characters flawed but wonderful. Fantastic!”—New York Times bestselling author Donna Alward
