New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nina Bruhns presents a short treat for your enjoyment!
Caught in the throes of a violent Caribbean coup, an innocent coed is kept safe by a hard-bitten mercenary. Convinced they are about to die, Lacy Warrick gives herself to the handsome stranger...in unexpectedly emotional lovemaking. After they are forced to part at the consulate, a photo of their heart-wrenching kiss ends up on the cover of a national magazine.
For nine years, Geoffrey Treynor gazes at the framed photo on his office wall and dreams of the amazing woman who has never left his jaded heart. But despite the huge changes he’s made to his life, he knows a man with his sordid past is not right for the classy uptown woman. Then, a chance meeting takes them both by surprise...and the bombs they each drop threaten to explode both their worlds. But that’s nothing compared to the fireworks that go off when they succumb for their pent-up feelings and kiss again...
Can love born in bullets survive the truths of peacetime...and lead to the love of a lifetime?
