Home of Her Heart

All he needed was a bride. . .

Who said anything about falling in love?

Orphaned at birth and a loner all his life, the last thing Sergeant Klayne Campbell needs is for feisty Delaney Danvers to entangle his thoughts. Bravely volunteering for a top-secret mission almost certain to get him killed, Klayne can’t bear the thought of dying utterly alone. All he wants is to face death knowing his life meant something to at least one person. Offering Delaney a marriage of convenience, he plans to leave behind a war bride as his beneficiary. After just one night as her husband, Klayne realizes he’ll do anything to survive and return to her.

The moment she met handsome Sergeant Campbell at a holiday party, Delaney’s whole world shifted off kilter. Full of fun with an unquenchable zest for life, she isn’t afraid to go after what she wants. And what she wants is Klayne. When he prepares to join a hazardous mission, she seizes the opportunity to give him a reason to fight his way back home — to her heart. 

A tender, sweet romance rich with history and enduring love, Home of Her Heart captures the era and emotions prevalent during America’s entry into World War II.

Praise for Home of Her Heart

“A wonderful sweet, emotional, historical romance. With inspiration from the real-life Doolittle Raiders, the history of WWII is woven throughout the story and comes to life. Shanna Hatfield consistency writes very strong female characters. While Sergeant Klayne did return a hero, Delaney really shows her strength as she faces numerous challenges on the ranch. Hatfield’s in depth research is blended so well in this book combining the history with romance, humor, emotions, and turmoil. I was engaged throughout the entire story and captivated by the characters, especially Delaney.”

Amazon Reviewer


“Home of Her Heart takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster. The emotion and the romance is fantastic in this second installment of the Hearts of the War series, even though there are moments it can get lost during the heavier aspects of the story. The novel truly shines with intriguing, strong and relatable characters. All in all, Hatfield gives us a read — and a series — to remember. “

“Shanna Hatfield writes to your heart.”

Scherry Jenkins, Readers’ Favorite

“The author deftly draws readers into this era with attention to detail that make it feel believable, in a small town with secondary characters that add depth and dimension.”

A sound of tortured misery escaped his throat on a low groan. “Delaney, you need to step away and show me to the door, right now. If you don’t, if you wait one more minute, I won’t be able to leave. Do you understand what I’m telling you, sweetheart? If you want me to leave, now is the time to tell me.” He started to move away but she wouldn’t let him, clasping her arms around his waist and holding on tight.

He held his arms out to his sides, not touching her. Even so, she felt a tremor pass through him as he fought to hold onto his control.

“Delaney Marie, if you don’t turn me loose, I won’t be held responsible for my actions. I know I promised you a marriage in name only, but you can only push a man so far before he lands beyond the edge of reason.”

“I plan to hold you responsible for your actions, Klayne.” She gave him a smirk as her hazel eyes darkened. “Fully and completely responsible.”
