Tormented by the loss of his men, Marine Corps Captain Sawyer Mathis returns home to attend a retreat for children who had lost a parent in war. He’s forced to spend time with Katya Khavalov, the sister of one of the Marines killed during a firefight under his command. Unafraid of war or death, Sawyer is determined not to let a beautiful woman with a quick temper and broken heart deter him from trying to help her family heal.
Fiery yet sweet Katya resents the cool, unflappable commander. He brought one brother back in a box and the other dismembered. She blames him for destroying her family and believes him to be incapable of feeling anything – until she witnesses firsthand the toll the war and deaths are taking on Sawyer. He’s suffering, too, and too stubborn to admit it.
The longer the two spend together, the more they begin to understand each other. What neither is counting on: the feelings they ignite within each other.
This is the first book in the Sons of War Series by Lizzy Ford.

An Emotional Read
I am a fan of Lizzy Ford and have read several of her paranormal series. However, I was not expecting this book to be so good. It was emotional read, raw and beautiful. Two angry souls each fighting their grieve in their own way and but in the end they managed to help each other. I loved Katya, so much loss and hurt, yet she had such a good soul all hidden beneath her grieve. I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in this series.
Semper Mine - Book One - great summer read!
Really enjoyed this military love story. How loss and pain eventually turns to hope. This was definitely a summer reading list type of novel. I couldn’t put it down.
Semper Mine - Book One by Lizzie Ford
This is a page turner from the beginning that will pull at your heart strings and root for the underdog. Can’t wait to read book two.
