Project Description

A Hero Lies Within

A returning war hero and the woman who once loved him are brought together again – but will they be able to heal the wounds of their past?

Kari Winslow is a Palm Beach news reporter, fighting not only to keep her job, but take over the nightly anchor spot. Her boss has axed her special runaway series, and wants “feel good stories” instead. She has only two weeks to come up with something big, or the special series will be taken over by the new anchorman who seems determined to ruin her career.

Jake Harrington has returned from two tours in Iraq, and this wounded warrior is searching for peace – and a family friend who’s gone missing. He turns to his former love Kari for help. Though Jake hurt Kari badly once before, she agrees to help him under one condition: he must provide her with “feel good stories” about the everyday heroes he served with. But his memory is sketchy at best, and the only stories he remembers are the ones she doesn’t want to hear.

Fate, it seems, has brought them back together – but can Kari ever forget Jakes’ bitter betrayal, and will he forgive hers when to save her career she must betray his trust…?


A Hero Lies Within- Fantastic February 26, 2013
Wow….what a fantantastic start to a new serial romance. This has started out great.
The reader is drawn in from page 1. The author Patrice Wilton has a natural gift in writing. You are immediately drawn to the characters. The characters are witty and full of personality. You feel like they are people that you really know. The dialogue is great….just the right amount of snark. And of course there is the intrigue of romantic conflict….lost love…the one that got away. This could of been just an ordinary book but the author has a true gift in story telling that goes above and beyond. Oh and I must mention….her story takes place in the Palm Beach area. I am from the area and the author is right on the mark with places and scenery.
I would highly recommend this! Buy this book! ~BY Shellbelle

Terrific Book! February 26, 2013
Patrice Wilton knows her heroes. This is from what I understand, part of the first of a terrific series. I don’t know if I can wait to read the rest of it!! Returning veterans face a gambit of issues when they return and this hits home for me… I’m glad there will be more of these hero stories! ~by Mary R.
