Valentine's Day Specials for Homer's Most Romantic Books!

Homer Hickam's

What? You didn't know Homer writes Romantic books?

Indeed he does! And these love stories, signed by Homer and inscribed with your beloved's name, are perfect for Valentine's Day! Not only that, we're discounting their prices!

Here are the top three Homer Hickam romantic books:


Carrying Albert Home tells the sweet, funny and sometimes heartbreaking tale of a young couple and their special pet on a crazy 1,000 mile journey. Told with the warmth and down-home charm that made Rocket Boys a beloved bestseller, Homer Hickam’s rollicking novel is truly a testament to that strange and marvelous emotion we call love.


From the author of the #1 New York Times best-seller Rocket Boys, comes the exciting story of a woman deeply in love with a man so different from her, no one believes she can possibly win him over. To do it, she must work in a deep mine where danger and even murder awaits her in the darkness.  Red Helmet is a stirring and unforgettable love story of a woman, a man, and a proud people lost in the cracks of American society, told by the author born to write it. 


Actually, Homer and Linda have a bit of an argument on this one. Homer maintains The Dinosaur Hunter is at heart a love story, Linda isn't so sure. Homer points out these lines in the novel to prove his case which occurs after Mike, the narrator cowboy detective in the story, confronts Jeanette, the love of his life (and his boss), after they've given medicine to a calf who, insulted by the whole thing, shows it by, well, pooping on Jeanette:

            I turned around.  "What's it to me?  What's it to you?  I don't know, Jeanette, except for this.  I love you.  I have always loved you.  I loved you from the moment Bill first introduced me to you.  Sometimes, when I'm around you, I think my heart is going to tear itself right out of my chest.  When a day goes by and I don't see you, I think my soul dies a little.  If there wasn't you, there wouldn't be me.  Not the same me.  Some other me.  Some sad, unhappy, poor in spirit, poor in life me."
            I started to say more but she held up her hand which was, I had the presence of mind to notice, covered in manure just like her face. "I never knew," she said.
            I reentered the barn and went down on one knee beside her, grabbed her, and kissed her full on the mouth.  "Now, that's love, honey," I said.  "Ask another man to kiss you when you're covered with s**t."

Anyway, The Dinosaur Hunter  lets readers in on a world that has fascinated Homer for decades, drawing on his own experiences fossil-hunting and getting to know the people of Montana. In the vein of the novels of Larry McMurtry and Tony Hillerman, The Dinosaur Hunter pays tribute to the still amazing and glorious American West.
