Welcome to Hathaway House, a heartwarming military romance series from USA TODAY best-selling author Dale Mayer. Here you’ll meet a whole new group of friends, along with a few favorite characters from Heroes for Hire. Instead of action, you’ll find emotion. Instead of suspense, you’ll find healing. Instead of romance, … oh, wait. … There is romance—of course!
Welcome to Hathaway House. Rehab Center. Safe Haven. Second chance at life and love.
Former Navy SEAL Aaron Hammond has no idea how he wound up at Hathaway House, Texas. Nor does he particularly care. All he can see is his anger. Anger at the betrayal that destroyed his physical body and at the loss of the future he wanted but that he’ll never have now. He’s a cripple, less than half a man, and all he can look forward to is a half life, alone with himself and his pain.
Dani Hathaway runs Hathaway House with her father, an ex-military man nicknamed the Major, and she knew Aaron and his brother SEAL Levi in another life. Levi was a good friend to her through her difficult teen years, but it was Aaron who caught her eye more than a decade ago. When she heard what happened to him, she moved heaven and earth to get him to Hathaway House, where she could help him regain his health and return him to the man he used to be.
Old feelings resurface as Dani continues to push Aaron to acknowledge that his life is not over, and that, if he chooses, he can find both love and a future at Hathaway House.

Aaron: Hathaway House
Yet another great book by this author. I especially love the concept of Hathaway House. Everything a person needs to recover from traumatic injury in one place. Wonderful idea. Wonderful book.
Aaron: A Hathaway House Heartwarming
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I also purchased a copy.
This was a delightful heartwarming story. I look forward to more of Hathaway House. The place where veterans go for a chance to heal. I have adored the different series that Ms. Mayer writes. I wasn't sure how I would feel about this type of story from her. I shouldn't have doubted her. The story flowed beautifully and I read it in one sitting. I adored Aaron (he is related to one of my favorite characters!!!)
My heart ached for the trauma that Aaron suffered at the hands of his best friend. Losing a leg, injuring his back and losing his career in the military was a lot for this man to have gone through. Getting a glimpse into his POV really helped to connect to this wounded man. To fully understand his ordeal and humanize the character, it was a must. The dual POV format is a great way to get closer to these characters. That is why I love books. It is hard to really connect to a character on TV or in the movies as we don't get the inside scoop of the character.
I highly recommend this sweet clean romance to anyone.
Hathaway House: Aaron (The Quest of Accepting Help)
Hathaway House -- a specialized place geared to help the wounded veteran recover and heal from injuries of the body and soul. A place which also helps abused and injured animals heal and find trust. Aaron is a SEAL who was injured on duty and now the healing process is slow, the anger deep seated, his focus clouded. Dani is a friend from his past, his past which includes his brother Levi. Through the determination of Dani and members of the Hathaway House staff, and through the magic of the animals, Aaron learns to release and to look forward. A powerful book, a book for all ages. I thought the K9 Files series was great (cheering out loud series), Heroes for Hire and SEALS of Honor were major page turners, but this is a wonderfully unique series and one I look eagerly for the next installment. Bravo, Dale Mayer!
