A Marine’s Proposal by Lisa Carlisle

When Slade Masters, her closest friend in the Marine Corps, proposes to her, Caitlyn O’Neill lets her thrill overshadow the catch. It’s a marriage in name only. Slade thinks a temporary marriage is the perfect solution to their problematic living situations in the barracks. Despite her reservations about the deceit involved, Caitlyn is thrilled to live off-base and experience the culture of the island of Okinawa, Japan, as a local—especially with Slade. Swept up in the excitement of apartment hunting and planning a wedding, she silences the anxiety within and goes along with Slade’s plans. They struggle to fight their growing attraction while acting on their script. On their wedding night, their bodies heat up with the thrill of being so close. Desire intensifies during a heated moment on the dance floor. How can they play off the charade of their marriage now that they have complicated their arrangement? Have they ruined their plan or will they find a way to continue? Or has their passionate night together uncovered hidden desires impossible to ignore?

Reader alert! Caitlyn’s fantasies about her marine buddy slade invade her thoughts over in Okinawa, Japan. Beware! When you read about their passionate encounter, you’ll experience another kind of heat on this tropical island.

To My Readers: Dear Readers, this story was inspired by a mock proposal (i think) during my days “shooting the s**t” in the Marine Corps. Slade and Caitlyn have a wonderful friendship, two people who’ve connected on the beautiful remote island of Okinawa, Japan. Yet neither admits their feelings run deeper—and hotter—than they’ve revealed. At their staged honeymoon, all masks come off during a passionate encounter too powerful to ignore.

As a lover of military romances I knew I would like this one right away. Slade is the alpha male but even better because he is a Marine! Caitlyn is a strong female who can handle her own in this male dominated area of the military. With a great hero and heroine and the beautiful setting of Okinawa there just wasn’t really a chance to go wrong! Lisa Carlisle has a way with description and I felt like I was right there with Slade and Caitlyn as their story unfolded in one of the most beautiful places. This book is definitely one to pick up!

WOW! What a wonderful,short, romance , funny story. I wanted more, I want to know  what happens next. I would have loved to have a 1yr later chapter. I really enjoyed this book. It is a quick , fast read. It will leave you wanting more. Slade and Cait are in love they just don't know it each other feels the same. When a marriage of convenience is set on the table how can you  say no to the one you really love? You will enjoy it , laugh and cry and want to scream at them both!!  Happy Reading !!
