Waiting for an Eclipse - Wounded Warriors Series, Book 2 by Karen Wiesner is a love story that encompasses love, passion, heartache, and pain. They know the consequences but still they take chances and fall in love. The book is also about men who live life in the fast lane. Steve Thomas led a miserable, guilt-filled life with a self-destructive wife. He meets his true love finally in the midst of all this unhappiness.

This is a love story which speaks about the ups and downs faced by a man in love. The story is somber, the love story and life of the main character is filled with a lot of dramatic and unhappy happenings from which there is no escape. Steve already has a lot of demons and guilt harbored within him which makes his portrayal as a dark character apt. His attraction to Kristine is very well conveyed to the reader. The author brilliantly describes how he is trapped between his love and attraction for Kristine and his family responsibilities.

The story is filled with dark passion laced with guilt and pain. It also speaks about how your past can influence many of your thoughts and behavior patterns in the later stages of your life. Will Steve be able to get out of an unhappy marriage and start fresh with Kristine? Or will he remain in this miserable existence with his self-destructive wife?
