One tormented soldier. One haunted woman. Eight snipers. Someone's going down...
The fallout from the team's failed mission to Lebanon is unraveling Lt. Col. Roger Weston and his team at the seams. God help them all if the world gets wind of the real story. With guilt eating Roger alive, he steps into the void to protect Mari Dalton and her unborn child from an extremist and her radical family. If it wasn't for the decision he made, Mari's husband would still be alive.
Keeping Mari safe was his top priority. Falling in love with her was out of the question.
Mari is certain God is punishing her. She loved the man who rescued her from a windowless cell in Afghanistan, and never betrayed their marriage. But she has never forgotten the day she met Roger or the way her heart pounded when his arresting blue gaze settled on hers. What did that make her?
When she becomes the target of terrorists bent on destroying the heart of America, Roger lays his life on the line to protect her. As they uncover a plot already in motion to assassinate the President, the world teeters on the edge of chaos.
Any hope for a future rests in Roger's already bloodstained hands...and the quietly faithful woman who now holds his heart.
