True HorizonTrue Horizon (Warrior of the Heart #2)

By Laurie Winter

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Age category: Adult

Release Date: December 1, 2017


Back home on her family's Texas Longhorn ranch, Grace Murray is busy preparing for her wedding. After a scruffy tattooed drifter saves her life, she takes on the mission of helping her savior, Heath Carter, find peace. The steady friendship and unconditional acceptance she receives from him encourages her to trade an old dream for a new one—a dream true to her heart. When she calls off her wedding, Grace is finally set free to fully love Heath.

After a decade of military service, Special Forces veteran Heath Carter is living with war's tragic consequences. Struggling with PTSD, anger, and guilt, he travels through Texas, solitarily moving from job to job. Working with Grace on the ranch, Heath's guilt over his past actions make him feel unworthy of her love. As their paths lead them in different directions, Heath needs to discover the courage to fight his toughest battle yet—the one inside himself.

Interview with Laurie Winter
Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?
-My characters constantly hijack my stories. Partly, because I write each first draft with only a loose plot line. Which, in turn, gives my imagination and my characters more freedom to improvise as the story progresses. In True Horizon, I’d pictured the accident which brings Grace and Health together differently than what’s in the book. Originally, I’d planned for her to get hit on the head by falling masonry from a building. But instead, she falls off a bridge and into the river. Then Heath jumps in to save her. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Convince us why you feel your book is a must read.
-I want to leave readers with a deeper appreciation and understanding of what our military vets endure during and after their service. Heath is a good man but he sees himself as tainted. Grace’s love doesn’t cure him. Instead, she gives him motivation to seek treatment and learn how to cope with his PTSD. I believe those deep emotions are relatable on so many levels.

Have you written any other books that are not published?
-The Warriors of the Heart series has three more books waiting in line to be published. I also have an unpublished contemporary romance set on a Wisconsin dairy farm as well as a romantic light suspense set in the snow capped mountains of Utah.

Pen or type writer or computer?
-Totally computer because I’m an awful speller and have sloppy handwriting. I can barely read my own handwritten notes!

Anything you would like to say to your readers and fans?

-I’d like to thank them for taking a chance on my stories. Each story comes from my heart, and feel so deeply for all my main characters. I know the wonderful feeling of being lost in a story and the buzz of finishing a good book. My hope is that I can be an author who provides those feelings for a reader.
