The Nurse’s Secret Suitor by Cheryl Wyatt
Not even Cheryl Wyatt’s closest friends would dream that this sweet, shy intercessor plots mayhem during announcements at church. She is a Registered Nurse turned stay-at-home-mom, wife and writer who loves Jesus with all of her heart.
Joyful chaos rules her home, and she delights in the stealth moments God gives her to write. She stays active in her church and in her laundry room. She is convinced that having been born on a Naval base on Valentines Day destined her to write Inspirational Military Romance.
Cheryl loves to laugh and to make others laugh, so she often plans comedic moments for her defenseless characters in spite of their grumbling. She says it’s payback for when they refuse to obey the plots she’s set out before them.
Prior to publication, six of Cheryl’s manuscripts placed in ten RWA Contests. Two of Cheryl’s stories also placed First in ACFW’s Noble Theme Contest 2005 (Contemporary Romance Category), as well as ACFW‘s Genesis Contest 2006 (Mystery/Suspense/Thriller Category).
She currently writes for Love Inspired. Her Wings of Refuge Series, about a team of USAF Pararescue Jumpers and the ladies who capture their hearts, can be purchased anywhere books are sold.

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Trauma nurse Kate Dalton can handle any challenge—except love. The combat veteran dreams of settling down, but heartbreak is one risk she won’t take. Then a chance encounter opens her heart to a masked stranger…who might not be a stranger after all! Caleb Landis, the army medic behind the disguise, has always admired Kate, even though she only saw him as her best friend’s brother. What will it take for Kate to discard her fears and discover the man she’s always hoped to unmask?

The Nurse’s Secret Suitor was a fun and entertaining book yet it included several highly emotional personal scenes and some intense medical ones as well. From the masquerade wedding that began the book to the storybook ball at its end, the author incorporated several unusual ideas into a very unique novel. Cheryl even has photos and links on her Facebook page to some of the projects described within the story.
I enjoyed the characters of The Nurse’s Secret Suitor, especially hero Caleb and Tia. That child Tia kept me laughing with her quips throughout the book that added just the right touch of humor. I also enjoyed touching base with characters from Cheryl’s previous books in this series.There were times I was a bit frustrated with Kate’s dependance on her mystery man when Caleb was such a caring person who was right there with her the entire time. I was so happy to watch how the Lord taught both Kate and Caleb how to trust him with their past hurts and to allow others past their self-imposed walls.
