Someone is watching her�
Shannon Fabray�s career in the art world is on the rise thanks in no small part to her signature sculpture Her Marine. But with fame, comes fans and some like to get closer than others. Coping with the notoriety, Shannon doesn�t let the constant contact get under her skin until one night, it goes to far and to Shannon�s horror, one of them is making it very clear he wants the artist for himself and sees her as a possession that should be added to his collection.
He�s coming home�
After a dozen years in service to his country, Lieutenant Brody Essex has lost count of the missions he�s run, the hours he�s spent in the field and the number of days he�s been out of the country. Budgetary issues freeze his promotion, and his unit is left on the ground in Afghanistan, but he makes it work because the only countdown that matters to him is the one that will bring him home. Home to the artist that carved a niche in his heart. When bureaucratic snafus hold up his paperwork, he sucks it up until a phone call alerts him that Shannon�s loft has been broken into, and she was nearly kidnapped.
Breaking all the rules�
Now Brody will break the rules and go AWOL, heading home without permission because his girl is in danger and she needs her Marine bodyguard�

(Brody and Shannon meet in Her Marine and this is the continuation of their story.) Someone is after Shannon. Sending threatening letters, breaking into her house and all of this happening while Brody is in Afghanistan. So, what happens when you're a Marine and something bad is happening to your woman and your overseas? Your Marine buddies and their wives/husbands come to the rescue. Only nobody guessed how far Brody would go to ensure Shannon's safety. Fantastic story! I love military romance and Heather Long writes an amazing Marine! Brody's love for Shannon is breathtaking. The lengths he goes to, to ensure Shannon's safety are a little crazy but who wouldn't love a man that loves his woman that completely. The chemistry is off-the-charts HOT!!! The loyalty amongst the Marines is enviable. This is my first book in The Always a Marine Series and if I could give it more than 5 Stars, I would. I can't wait to read more from this amazing author. *free copy gifted for honest review ** originally reviewed for welovekink(dot)com
We met straight arrow Lieutenant Brody Essex and artist Shannon Fabray in Her Marine (Always a Marine #5). Two years have passed and they have grown closer through infrequent visits, skype, email and snail mail. Shannon has found her passion and it has made her work shine. Her work is growing in popularity and she has a stalker. Brody is overseas but his Marine family has been watching over Shannon in his absence. When the stalker escalates to violence against her Brody needs to be by her side. It is tough being a military spouse/significant other. I know this from experience. Being apart from your loved ones is hard but it is especially difficult in times of trouble. This book puts you there. I promise you will feel Shannon’s fear and Brody’s frustration but mostly you will feel their love and the sense of community from their friends and the great folks from Mikes place. You probably can read this stand-alone but it will mean so much more if you’ve at least read Her Marine. This is an addictive series and each seems to be better than the last.
And does he ever return in a big way! I read Brody and Shannon's story in HER MARINE over a year ago and fell a little bit in love with him myself. Now he's back, and protecting his woman. Swoon! And this full length book takes us even deeper into their romance with a dose of suspense. This is another must read from Heather Long and the Always a Marine series. Don't miss out on it.
