Synopsis

Corporal Jessie McAllister is a US Marine Corp medic deployed to Afghanistan during renewed hostilities and attached to the British Army, Bravo Recon Section.  She is totally unprepared for the hostile conditions, not only from the environment but also from the members of her new section and commanding officer.

 

The Lieutenant makes it quite clear that he considers her a troublemaker, intent on disrupting his section.  Determined that no man will dictate or control her, Jessie is angered by his judgmental attitude and tries to convince herself that he is arrogant and conceited.  Why then does she find him so attractice, and what is it about Nick Ryan that sends her pulses racing?

 

Lieutenant Nick Ryan has no intention of allowing a woman to mess with his section, no matter how beautiful he finds her.  Falling in love with any woman - let alone while he is fighting a war - has never been part of his plans.  Why then does he find it increasingly hard to deny his feelings for her, and why does he want her so badly?

 

Through misunderstanding, betrayal and the hard facts of war, love is almost lost.  Two very different hearts are on a collision course in a hostile and unrelenting land.  Will their love be able to breach insurmountable barriers or, will everything fade away?
