I just finished the ebook I won, Wild Wyoming Nights by Sandy Sullivan. All I can say is WOW! It's a great book and I loved it. It's also heartwrenching. I cried from start to finish. The characters are really great and your heart breaks for them.

The hero, Chase Wilder, is a hunky Wyoming cowboy. Two years ago, he lost his wife in a freak car accident and is now afraid to love again. When Abby Carter moves in next door though, she is too much to resist.

But Abby has her own scars. She lost her beloved husband, Josh, a firefighter on 9/11. She's moved to Wyoming from New York to get away from the haunting memories of the man she loved. She is no more ready to step into the romance market than Chase.

But fate has a way of shoving you in the direction you are meant to go whether you want to go there or not. Now, two wounded souls must learn to bury the past so they can have a future.

This story is a real tear jerker. Anyone who was alive 8 years ago knows the pain and heartache of that awful day. I still remember seeing on the news people jumping from the tower because falling to their death was preferable to burning alive. I was at work when it happened and we didn't find out about it right away. Our computer network was through NYC and it crashed when the first tower came down.

We all found out when our boss's husband called her at work and told her to turn on the news. We kept getting sporadic updates. We heard a plane went down in Pennsylvania, but we didn't know where. I live with my mom literally ten minutes ouside Philly across the bridge in NJ and I spent the entire day until 3 p.m. trying to reach my mom to make sure she was ok. She was thank heavens, but I will never EVER forget that day.

Wild Wyoming Nights by Sandy Sullivan captures the pain of loss from that day very well. I can definately recommend this story, but I caution you to keep a box of tissues next to you as you read it. Wild Wyoming Nights is available now from Sirens Publishing. This is a great book.

this sounds like a tear jerker but Iwould love to read it..it's on my tb list. I don't think any of us will ever forget 9/11. I had two pen pals who lost their lives in the Towers and it was such a shock..even tho I never met them I enjoyed hearing from them and their letters were always such a welcomed sight in my mail box. susan L.

Yes Susan. 9/11 is kind of our generation's Pearl Harbor. I'm so sorry for the loss of your friends. Sandy Sullivan's book is a tear jerker and as I said, I highly recommend reading it with a box of kleenex.
