    Best-selling author Dee Henderson portrays the valor of naval aviator Lieutenant Grace Yates and Air Force pararescue jumper Major Bruce Stanton, and their blossoming romance. Although deployments keep them apart, their friendship develops in letters of faith and comfort. When Grace's F/A-18 Hornet crashes among Kurdistan's towering peaks, Bruce's elite rescue team races into harm's way to save her. And Bruce fears she'll never know how much he truly cares.

    If you could sum up True Valor in three words, what would they be?

    Perseverance, Bravery, Strength


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Grace; You expect the three words above when describing a man in the military not a female. It was a great story outlining how difficult it must be for women in the armed forces. Change is necessary but rarely easy. Grace's character shows women can do the job as well as men but also the balance necessary to have a personal life.


    What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He really brings the story to life.

    Kelly Jacobs has already paid the ultimate price of loving a warrior. She has the folded flag and the grateful thanks of a nation to prove it. Navy SEAL Joe "Bear" Baker can't ask her to accept that risk again, even though he loves her. But the man responsible for her husband's death is back, closer than either of them realize. Kelly's in danger, and Joe may not get there in time.

    What did you love best about True Devotion?

    I loved how this book ties crisis with faith. Whenever I get discouraged in life I listen to this.
    It reminds me there are other more pressing matters in the world. With these events, there are individuals that risk everything daily so we can live a free life. I need books like this to keep perspective.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved everything: the story, the characters and the message. I have
    listened to this series many times when I am in need of inspiration and
    Motivation. I have recommended this series to many and they get hooked😄


    What about Tom Stechschulte’s performance did you like?

    Some people think his voice is unusual. I feel his voice suits the
    Rugged characters that he portrays. These characters are Navy Seals. In my mind, there is an inner toughness that allows these men to do the impossible on a daily basis. He conveys this with his intonation and cadence. Two thumbs up!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this story so much I own all the Dee Henderson stories.
    I can't wait for her new story Full Disclosure in Oct 2012!!!

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I had heard great things about this book so I purchased it on audible bc I had a token.
    I liked the story line but found the narrator to be distracting. Some female
    Narrators can switch to a male voice without losing the story. This narrators voice seemed
    Comical. I think I would have enjoyed the story more with a different narrator or just
    Reading the book.


    What other book might you compare Bared to You to and why?

    I guess 50 shades of Gray. In some ways, this story was much better.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jill Redfield?

    Susan Erickson she can switch characters so fluidly you
    Don't realize you are listening to a book.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No
