Heather Long lives in Texas with her family and their menagerie of animals. As a child, Heather skipped picture books and enjoyed the Harlequin romance novels by Penny Jordan and Nora Roberts that her grandmother read to her. Heather believes that laughter is as important to life as breathing and that the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus are very real. In the meanwhile, she is hard at work on her next novel.

Roger Michael Easton IV, better known as Rowdy, flouted the family's Naval tradition to enlist in the Marines—not as an officer, but a ground pounding grunt. He never expected to see as much combat or valor as he did in the field, but every engagement furthered his commitment to his brothers in arms. Now, with an early offer on the table to end his contract, Rowdy has to take a long look at the life he left behind, the life he's built, and the future he longs to have.
Rowdy also wants a woman who gets him.
Inactive Marine, Kim Wakefield, continues to serve her country as a Naval Criminal Investigator. She's hard on the grunts and sailors because she is one of them—and they didn't sign up for easy. Tired of the seedier side of military life—picking up drunk Marines, AWOL sailors, busting drug running operations, or worse, sending drug addicted servicemen to court marshal and treatment, she longs to have her faith in her fellow Marines restored.
Kim wants a man who knows what she needs.
Thrown together by chance on a 1Night Stand, the jarheads have a combustible chemistry—but do they have what it takes to give each other what they want?

Another fantastic entry in Heather Long’s Always a Marine 1NS series. Rowdy is a dedicated Marine. He has been focused on the job and now he needs to decide whether to reenlist or not. As part of the process he has scheduled some down time with a one night stand with Madame Eve’s 1NS service. He wants a woman who “gets” him. Kim is an inactive Marine now working as an NCIS agent. She wants a man who understands that a woman is a multifaceted being and can be both a hard ass NCIS agent and a woman. She is intrigued with Rowdy and the sex is off the charts but can they ever be more than a one night stand? Heather Long has mastered the art of making these novellas believable. With the 1NS device she gets to skip a lot of the chase and go right to the part of why these characters would or would not work. I love this series and anxiously await each new installment.
