Since then, she has learned the art of hiding screens and pages from the eyes of others. She has developed this skill so much that it now comes handy for her as she has become of a couple of school-going children.

One of the novel series written by author Serena Bell is the ‘Returning Home’ series, which consists of just two novels as of now. The first novel of this series was published by the Loveswept publishing house in the year 2014. It was titled ‘Hold on Tight’ and showed the heartwarming story of a young mother and a war veteran as they wonder whether they can develop the sparks once again that they had once shared. In the opening sequence of the plot of the novel, one of the characters named Jake Taylor seemed to have found meaning and shape in his life after getting the chance to fight for his country. But now he is just an injured war hero who struggles to find some purpose in his life. His struggles continue till he goes on to meet a gorgeous and a beautiful young woman, whom he had previously dated for a short period before going to war around 8 years ago. At that time, his love had proved disastrous for her as she had to bear the tag of a single mother, being pregnant and giving birth to his child.
After meeting her after such a long time, it appears that Jake Taylor does not know how to behave as a civilian. He id required to figure out that thing and also needs to learn the qualities of being a good father. The other character named Mira Shipley, who had become pregnant at a very young age of 18 seemed totally lost. She was not able to track down the war going soldier who had impregnated her with his child. Being alone with her son, she decided to put her academic studies aside and focus on looking after her son. Mira seems to be determined to be more than the daughter of her parents and the mother of her son. When she gets the chance of seeing Jake Taylor again, she realizes that the passionate love between the two had not faded. So, she thought that sometimes it is better to hold on than running away.
The second novel of the Returning Home series written by author Serena Bell was published under the title ‘Can’t Hold Back’. It was published by the Loveswept publishing house in the year 2015. The plot of this novel deals with the lives of the main characters Nate Riordan and Alia Drake. The main theme of the novel centers around war veteran getting a second chance for having love in his life after being taken away from his lover previously. In the opening sequence of the plot of the novel, Nate Riordan is introduced as a war hero, who does not seem to be resisted by many women, especially because of his uniform. But, after getting injured in the line of duty, he seems to be broken from within. Soon, he becomes addicted to his pain medicines, as he does not have anywhere to go, no home and no family. Feeling desperate to escape from his sufferings, Nate Riordan accepts an invitation from a friend reluctantly to attend a veterans’ retreat. While at the party, he comes across his former physical therapist, who had indulged in a relationship with him previously, which had resulted in the heartbreak of both of them. The physical therapist named as Alia Drake had fallen for Nate Riordan many years ago. But, he had never shown any interest at that point. Instead, he set up her sister with a military man. The decision turned out to be foolish and still haunts the three of them. Now that Nate is injured and has been sent as her patient, she is required to make things right for him. She does not mind if she has to get too close to him for providing him comfort. It turns out that a healing touch from Alia Drake worked wonders for Nate Riordan, due to which the two became intimate with each other once again. The deep intimacy between the two seems to cross the professional boundaries and this time Alia Drake does not think of holding anything back as she is full of desires and intimacy with Nate Riordan.Book Series In Order » Authors » Serena Bell
