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 Elliot Carver came to Hathaway House to get help with the lingering repercussions of a mission gone bad. His body is dealing with the physical trauma of a spinal cord injury, while his mind is caught in a loop of painful memories that he can’t sideline, and both won’t let him heal the way he’d like.
Former ER Nurse Sicily Lawrence has just made her way out of a difficult relationship, and the quietness of the night shift at Hathaway House gives her peace of mind. The last thing she needs is to get involved in another volatile union. But she has seen injuries like Elliot’s before, and she knows that a certain type of therapy can help. One Elliot isn’t interested in trying.
Now, for Elliot’s sake, Sicily must push him toward the progress he needs, even it means losing him. And, with time and luck, maybe they can cross the hurdle and find each other at Hathaway House.

Elliot: Hathaway House
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a fabulous addition to the series. I love reading about these wounded warriors who in their time of time of healing find the love of their lives. This story is no different. Former Navy SEAL Elliot Carver has suffered horrific back injuries that make it difficult to sleep. Plus he suffers from PTSD nightmares about the incident that injured him and killed his friend. Sicily Lawrence is a former ER nurse who works the 3rd shift at Hathaway House. She escaped her life in Detroit and the harried pace in the ER for the much simpler life at Hathaway in Texas. After working 5 years there on the 3rd shift, she encounters Elliot. Between his muscle spams and nightmares keeping him awake at night, the two become more friends than patient and nurse.
Elliot and Sicily have a journey in front of them that was wonderful to read. There were some really great and poignant moments between these two. I enjoyed the dual POV format that this was written in. I really felt drawn to Elliot as I was reading his inner most thoughts.
This is a sweet, clean romance about an injured war veteran and a deeply compassionate, heart-of-gold nurse. Prior characters make appearance in this story and while it can be a stand-alone, I would recommend reading the prior stories. They are all wonderful just like this one.
