Daniel Martin is home after ten years serving his country, but war—and the secrets that follow him—hold him in an unrelenting grip.
There is no one he wants to see more than Chloe, but he missed his chance with her ten years ago. Pushed her away and told her to find someone else. He had wanted her—badly. But his life had been a mess, and they’d both been too young. He’d made her hate him, but he’d had nothing to offer her.
Now, protecting his unit comes at a high price. Falling in love is dangerous. Believing the past will stay buried, where it can’t hurt her, is a risk.
If he takes Chloe to bed, there will be no escape for either of them.
If he kisses her, he’ll never want to stop.
If he touches her, he won’t be able to walk away.
He needs to walk away.
Then he sees her…and it’s too late.
He will risk everything to make her his. But how will he convince her that’s he not the boy who broke her heart, but a man determined to cherish her forever?
