"I loved, loved, loved this story, and I hadn't read any of the others in the series. I did not feel at a disadvantage like I often do, jumping into a series already established. It was a new experience. Not since reading Bev Pettesen's racetrack series have a felt that connection to a world so foreign to my own, to something new and compelling and to wanting to learn and experience as I read along. The world of Navy SEALs and intrigue is expertly handled and the two main characters, amid all the other wonderful characters, were standouts." -- Amazon reviewer
Navy SEAL, Santino "Hunter" Lozano is ready to settle down. The problem is finding a woman suited to the long separations and hardships a military wife endures. When Hunter meets Celia West, he believes he's finally found the woman. A smart, beautiful Department of Defense contractor, Celia conducts "after-action" interviews with Special Operators giving her special knowledge of the demands of his job. She also understands there are things about the job he can never share.

Celia has long wondered what the secretive Spec Ops men are like away from the job. When the hot and mysterious SEAL asks her out, she accepts thinking there might also be some fun time between the sheets.

Hunter soon makes it clear he wants more than fun time. He's determined to have Celia in his life and he sets about to make it happen.

Celia's personal and professional life is a complicated tangle of dark secrets, and she can't afford to let anyone close. Not even Hunter could protect her should the violent problems of her past reappear.

Celia gives in to deeper feelings and Hunter sweeps her into a life of love, family and loyalty she thought she could never have.

And maybe she can't. To be with Hunter Celia realizes she must share her secrets. At least some of them, for telling all would place him in more danger than he's ever known and she would surely lose him.

Rita grew up running the beaches of a barrier island on Florida's east coast. An island brat, she spent more time climbing weathered oaks and chasing alligators than playing with the dolls her family gave her. She married a Marine and feels fortunate to have lived many places and traveled to the states and countries she didn't live. Leaving government service she moved back to that barrier island where she writes contemporary fiction weaving her experiences into her story telling. Her heroes and heroines are either in the military or government service because she writes what she knows. Her father was in the Coast Guard and immediate family members served in every branch of the service as desk jockeys, grunts, pilots and everything in between. She's experienced the highs and lows of military and government life and is grateful for each experience.
