Sophie Keaton’s love life is a disaster. Too busy with her art gallery and weekends spent with the Army National Guard, she rarely has time for a date. Her orderly existence takes a twist when her Army National Guard unit gets a new Company Commander, Captain Gage Jenkins, who dislikes the idea of women in the Army, particularly her, and proceeds to make her weekend drill miserable. To bolster her self-esteem, Sophie finally takes her love life in hand and goes out on a date. Unfortunately, her date ends up in the emergency room with an allergic reaction to her cat. Her mooch of a brother, Bryce, feels sorry for her and offers to take her out to pick the “perfect man”. When she finds Mr. Perfect, she spends a passionate night with him, but awakens to discover that Mr. Perfect is none other than her new commanding officer!
As a member of the Texas Billionaire’s club, Gage has watched every one of his college buddies tie the knot. Although he’d met every challenge the group set in the early days, he resisted the last one—finding the perfect wife. Now, with his hands full expanding his construction business and whipping his new Army Guard command into shape, he has plenty of excuses to avoid that particular commitment. However, when he moves next door to one very attractive, very sexy woman, he finds himself deliciously distracted. When he discovers that woman is the same klutzy lieutenant he’s been dogging from day one, he’s not angry. He’s amused. And intrigued.
When the pair are challenged by their warring pets and matchmaking sergeants, the rules of Love and War get complicated…

This book is laugh out loud funny, sexy and romantic.
Love & War just about had me rolling on the floor laughing. I was definitely laughing out loud – so much so that my husband wondered what I was reading and had me read sections to him. It’s the 4th book in the Texas Billionaires Club but it easily stands alone. I highly recommend the other books, however, as they are also great stories.I enjoy all of the books that I’ve read by these two sister authors – both what they write together and individually – but I don’t seem to get around to reading a lot of romantic comedy these days. I’m so glad that I was asked to do a beta read of this book for them; it was a refreshing change from what I’ve been reading lately.
Gage and Sophie don’t meet under the best of circumstances and she certainly didn’t make a good impression on him. He thinks she’s clumsy and not really any good in the Army National Guard. Sophie hates how judgmental her new boss is and doesn’t want to have anything to do with him. When she realizes he’s the man that she made passionate love to all night recently she can’t believe it and vows to stay clear of him.
Add in a crazy cat named Cujo, a dog named Rambo and her sneaky, prankster brother, Bryce, and you have the recipe for a deliciously funny and romantic story.
If you like romantic comedy I can’t recommend this one highly enough.
Note: The excerpt below is about Gage’s dog, Rambo, and Sophie’s cat, Cujo, having a moment in Gage’s house; I thought it was hilarious.
