Two Hearts in Accord: Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance, Book 7 is a contemporary military fiction/romance novel written by Tamara Ferguson. Airman Neil Harrison was stunned as he watched his colleague Anna Drummond’s response when their base in the protected zone was attacked by insurgents. After seeing base security personnel being targeted and hit, Anna rushed to one of the fallen men’s sides, grabbed his rifle and quickly dispatched the five attacking insurgents. Neil watched as she took out three of them and left the other two wounded. He knew that skills such as hers were quite rare -- in his four tours he’d never seen her like. He wondered if she’d be able to handle the stresses of being a sniper, which was probably how she could most efficiently serve. He certainly would rather she become a sniper than the alternative route frequently assigned talented women soldiers -- working undercover. Four years later, Anna was psyched at the idea of being relevant and actively engaged in military service again as she reported for duty at Crystal Rock’s Wounded Warrior Home in Wisconsin. Then she saw Neil, someone she had never stopped thinking about. He would also be an instructor in the program designed to help wounded warriors return to active duty.

Two Hearts in Accord continues the author’s most impressive saga of the magic that happens at Crystal Rock, Wisconsin. Each of the books in the series can be read out of order, and this book is no exception. The author gives sufficient background for Two Hearts in Accord to be read as a standalone. That said, I’ve enjoyed each of the books in the series. Every new book adds extra dimension and characters to a place that has come more and more to feel like home. Ferguson’s characters, particularly Anna Drummond and Neil Harrison, are well defined and genuine. Seeing them in Iraq and then reuniting in Wisconsin is incredibly powerful. The plot is engaging and relevant and Ferguson’s writing, as always, is smooth and eloquent. Two Hearts in Accord reads like a dream and is impossible to put down. It is most highly recommended.

Two Hearts in Accord by Tamara Ferguson is the seventh installment in the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance series. This book follows pilot and sniper Lieutenant Anna Drummond following a traumatic attack on an Iraqi airbase and a subsequent injury that left her with a prosthetic arm after being promoted as a sniper. Alongside her is Lieutenant Neil Harrison, who had worked with Anna in combat missions before losing a leg himself. When a training facility with the objective of retraining military personnel who have been seriously wounded opens in the United States, Anna and Neil are brought back together as instructors. Despite an attraction that has remained steady for years, neither is ready for a serious relationship—especially when the life of another wounded warrior is in danger.

Two Hearts in Accord is a really heartwarming story that digs a bit deeper than a typical romance in that it deals with a subject matter that isn't always comfortable (even for its characters). Tamara Ferguson does an excellent job in building upon the life and experience of a strong, intelligent, deeply talented female protagonist who, while emotionally somewhat fragile, is in no way hindered by the new boundaries levied with a prosthetic arm; any weakness she has is in the heart alone. Neil is equally worthy as the male lead and together they form a partnership. The ancillary characters are well developed and Ferguson brings tie-ins from prior books, which fans of the series will absolutely love. I think this is a solid romance that is both timely and appropriate, and this book is one I'd be happy to see my (older teen) daughter get lost in.
