He's a wounded Marine finding it hard to come home again, she's the wife who won't give up on him, both are locked in a battle for love and justice...
Welcome to the Scintillating Sunday Blog Hop where multiple authors share experts of their books--8 paragraphs ONLY that capture the word 'scintillating.'
“Do not ever tell me again what you are not.” Fingers pulled at his hair. “I know what you are.”
“I don’t want to disappoint you anymore.” The words scraped like fishhooks pulling on the inside of his throat.
“We can be whatever we want, do whatever we want, however we want.” She kissed him then as if the world were ending around them, as if the bombs were exploding again and they were hiding in the back of Marishka’s house shrouded in darkness and surrounded by chaos.
His hands curved over her ass with a will of their own and pressed her close. He deepened the kiss, needing her warmth and passion more than he had needed any therapy—physical or otherwise.
“I feel like we’re breaking all the rules,” she whispered into his open mouth.
“What rules?” His tongue flicked over her lips. “We’re just making this up as we go.”
“Can you feel it, Michael? Can you feel that heat?”
Oh, he could feel the heat.
Sometimes heroes fall and take their loved ones down with them.
Colonel Michael Cedars and reporter Hope Shane fell in love in a warzone, but then the world blew up and splintered their lives in two.
Coming home again isn't always easy.
A Marine accustomed to giving orders, Michael struggles to find his role in civilian life. Wounded, he faces new battles as he learns to walk again, struggles with wartime ghosts, and questions his abilities as a husband.
A love worth fighting for.
Hope doesn't give up—not on the man she loves and not on her pursuit of justice. An investigative reporter, she's hot on the trail of a human trafficking ring. Danger intensifies as she gets closer to the truth, but the human traffickers know her weakness.
Will Michael become her Achilles Heel? Is he still the hero she married or has he become a liability that could get them both killed?
