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.
Navy SEAL Denton Hamilton has checked himself into Hathaway House, hoping for a fraction of the results his friends have gotten at the rehab center. Now missing a rib, muscles and a portion of his stomach, as well as suffering from PTSD, Denton would be happy to have his physical self healed. He’s not so sure he’ll ever get his mental health back, and finding a woman who’ll have him now—as his friends have been lucky enough to do—is out of the question. Who would be willing to love a man like him?
Administrative Assistant Hannah Forsythe helps Dani run Hathaway House. A loner at heart, she’s drawn to Denton’s struggle and dismayed at his belief that no one could ever love him. But when an ill-advised observation she makes has unexpected consequences for Denton’s recovery, Hannah’s only choice is to separate herself from him to help him progress without her.
As time passes, Hannah wonders if her choice has cost her everything she’s ever wanted or whether Denton can work through his feelings to give them both their happy ending at Hathaway House.

I just adore the Hathaway House series. It is a place where (at least for this series so far) that our heroes go to seek further rehabilitation than the VA hospitals can provide. Denton is a wounded warrior who joined Hathaway where he two best buddies are at with the help of a benefactor. Hannah works at Hathaway as Dani's assistant. She is basically a loner and is feeling the effects of being alone after meeting Denton. Seeing him with his two friends has her thinking that she may be deficient in some way as she doesn't have any life long friends.
I loved having the dual POV format. This really helps me to connect with the characters and really understand them better. It almost humanizes them to me.
If you adore sweet, clean romance, then I highly recommend this one to you.
Denton:A Hathaway House (or The Friendship Factor)
Hathaway House is a place of healing. For Denton it is a place for him to grow, to regain lost physical abilities and put many issues in perspective. It is there that he meets Hannah and realizes that perception vary with the beholder. It is as much about emotional healing as it is physical healing and many of the wounds happened before the actual injuries he received as a Navy SEAL. This is book 4 of the Hathaway House series and each book gets that much better. Well done, Dale Mayer.
