It’s against Army regulations—I know that. But whenever I look into his eyes, I lose my ability to think straight.
He’s a Chief Warrant Officer, and I’m a mere Non-Commissioned Officer. But that doesn’t stop me from thinking about him every night, dreaming about how my body would react to his touch.
But I won’t allow myself to be another notch on his bedpost. I’ll do whatever it takes to keep our relationship professional—especially since we are teamed up to investigate a terrorist organization.
There’s no margin for error. I can’t allow my midnight fantasies to jeopardize my day job, to discredit my reputation.
But there’s one major problem. Raleigh Fitzgerald is known to get what he wants, and right now…that’s me.
It’s been six months since all hell broke loose. Six months since I killed the organization’s leader. And six months since I fell for the love of my life.
Samantha and I thought the worst was over, that we would be able to move on—together. But we were wrong.
What we thought was in the past has now come back to haunt us. We’ve only managed to scratch the surface of this war raging against terrorism, and we have no idea who to trust anymore.
But one thing is for damn sure. I won’t let anyone hurt her. I will keep Samantha safe…even if it kills me.
A Warranted Novella
I met her, the girl of my dreams. We shared a kiss, we fell in love…and then I was deployed.
Now I’m back, but I’m no longer the man I used to be. I’m injured, scarred, and chances are I might never fully recover.
My heart still belongs to her—Annabelle—but my love for her demands I let her go. She deserves more than a broken man’s love, more than what I can offer.
But now, as I stare at her beautiful face, the sight of her cracking my heart in two, I pray I can be strong enough not to succumb to temptation. Both of us need time alone with our thoughts, so we came to the one place that made us feel whole again.
Now we’re trapped in her family cabin, and I can’t help but wonder whether being snowed in with Annabelle is a wonderful mistake…or a disaster waiting to happen.
