She’s a survivor of the front lines of politics. He’s a wounded soldier returning home from the battlefield. Can they place their trust in the power of love?
Nobody plays the role of perfect politician’s daughter better than quiet, respectable math teacher Brooke Ellstein. But she won’t be caught swimming with the sharks again, not after the son of a wealthy donor sinks his teeth into her and gets away with it. Still, political connections have their perks, such as heading up the governor’s “Support Our Troops” pen-pal initiative—and getting first dibs on the smoking-hot sergeant whose picture shakes her right down to her goody-two-shoes.
When corresponding with sweet, classy Brooke, Shane Develen instinctively hides his commando tattoos and blue-collar roots—and he can tell that she’s hiding something, too. But Shane knows he’s gained her trust when Brooke gives him a blisteringly sexy photo. Then he’s injured in an ambush and a fellow soldier posts the snapshot online. Overnight, Brooke’s reputation turns to ashes. Even though he’s totally wrong for her, Shane shows up on Brooke’s doorstep, determined to set things right—and discovers that right or wrong has nothing on the chemistry they share.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Marcus (The V-Spot) introduces Brooke Ellstein, a sweet junior high school teacher who convinces herself that she's in love with her soldier pen pal, Shane Develen. He's adamant that he doesn't want a girlfriend, but he's not above pressuring Brooke for sexy pictures. When she acquiesces, he flashes them around to his buddies and when he's injured in combat, another soldier wastes no time claiming the photos and putting them online. Misunderstandings and exaggerations escalate the embarrassing situation. Brooke flees to Shane's family for shelter from the media firestorm, but Shane is also at their house recuperating, and the two are thrust into near-constant conflict. Brooke's unilateral decision that they should be a couple butts up against Shane's attitude, which vacillates between misogyny and worship, as the two of them try to figure out a future they can live with. While some moments are enlightened and even sweet, most of the story is a sad exploration of immaturity better suited to Brooke's adolescent students.
