Military Romance?

cfuson001

Looking for something like the grim reaper or the lady in red but without the political aspect. Basically i want a romance novel that focuses on the couple and his military journey.

Also don't recommend me popular stories like a fresh start as i have probably read it already.

Since we don't know which popular stories you have read, I'll ignore that requirement. You can decide whether to read a story or not.

Argon's http://storiesonline.net/s/17041/the-return-of-thomas-grey is currently posting, almost complete and fits your description. Several of the stories in that http://storiesonline.net/universe/102/anthony-carter also fit, http://storiesonline.net/s/58363/joerg-isebrand fits marginally - most of the romance is in the last few chapters.

While not a long story, 'Star Crossed Lovers' by HLD explores the effect a military career has on two military personnel who fall in love. Worth reading.

Probably not exactly like what you're wanting, but I recommend the Prince Roger series by David Weber. (It does end up being a love story, after all.)

How about Lois McMaster Bujold's Cordelia's Honor?
It is comprised of two parts: Shards of Honor and Barrayar. Together they form a continuous story following the life of Cordelia Vorkosigan nee Naismith from the day she met her then-enemy Lord Aral Vorkosigan through the boyhood of her son Miles. (cited from Publisher's Note).

Ok, this will be a stretch. It's nothing like a novel. In fact, it's flash fiction. It was written for a Writers Digest contest that had a 750-word limit. But you can read it in about 5 minutes so if you don't like it you wasted 5 minutes.

A suffering war veteran returns to his childhood home, and two surprises.
