Love Leaves No One Behind
by Claudia Pemberton
Mikayla Mitchell is an intelligent, headstrong, and loving woman with an unwavering devotion to her family and friends.
Jesse Daulton is a man by nature, a soldier by design, and a hero at heart. After a twenty-year career as a “high speed, low drag” U.S. Army Airborne Ranger, this soldier is looking forward to going home to spend time with long-lost family and friends.
Mikayla and Jesse are brought together by an act of kindness on his part, and within hours of meeting, the two form an unlikely union as they are drawn to one another by an undeniable attraction.
When a sadistic killer known as the “night crawler” unwittingly crosses the former Ranger’s path, Jesse proves that courage and heroism are part of the man, not the soldier. What ensues is a captivating lesson in life, love, and courage that provides absolute proof of the human spirit’s ability to triumph over adversity.
“Author Claudia Pemberton weaves heroic action and down-home charm into a timeless love story. The simple wisdom of recently deceased Granny Mae spins a web of words that snares even a war-toughened Army Ranger. Pemberton’s rich images will delight her readers. She brings together wildly diverse characters, locations, and motives in a vivid story of love that conquers all.”
