After an unhappy childhood, Luke Carter joined the US Nave and has dedicated the last twelve years of his life to the SEALs. But the relentless overseas tours have taken their toll on his mind and body and now he dreams of what life might be like outside the military. Love, romance, his own space – maybe even a family he can call his own.
Juliet Morgan works in the fast-paced world of finance. Beautiful, headstrong
and smart, she chooses her career over love and puts all of her energy into her
new job—a job she was ‘persuaded’ to take far away from her beloved Manhattan
by her rich, overbearing father. She’s not looking for romance, but feels
lonely and lost in her new environment so she turns to online retail therapy to
lift her spirits and accidentally stumbles across a dating site where she’s
awestruck by Luke Carter.
The sparks flicker to a roaring flame with each sizzling message between them—then the battlefield nearly claims Luke’s life and he’s rushed home to the States. Although he’s only an hour away from Juliet, in his mind everything’s changed and his pride gets in the way of the love, passion, and happiness they both so desperately crave.
