There’s a fine line between courage and insanity…and he flings himself over it.
Captain Sam Dwight never thought his pre-war vow to “make a difference for good” would come back to haunt him. After suffering a grievous head wound in battle, he awakens in a field hospital, barely able to utter a word.
How fast would his beautiful, determined nurse call for a straitjacket if she knew that every time a bright light flickers in his eyes, he is transported back to the trenches, reaching out to heal a wounded soldier in a flash of dazzling light?
Lily Curtis has seen many soldiers racked with guilt, but she’s never seen one will himself to induce life-threatening seizures. She fears that next time, her hands won’t be quick enough to save her handsome, apparently suicidal charge.
As rumors of an ethereal battlefield specter reach the ward, Sam becomes convinced his front line mercy missions are real. But with each trip, he spins the roulette wheel with his own life while Lily’s love and the lives of those at the hospital hang in the balance.

Terri Meeker's second book opens up at a time of war in Europe. Captain Sam Dwight makes a vow to do some good in war--and ends up with a terrible head wound. The strange thing about it is, it gives him the ability to willfully enter the battlefield where wounded soldiers cry out for his help. His nurse, Lily Curtis quickly falls for Sam's charms, but believes he might be suicidal because he disobeys every order that will prevent him from having seizures. Can he convince her it's for the good of the boys on the field? Can their love survive his death-defying acts of bravery? I should have seen where the story was headed and the tremendous guilt such acts would cause for Sam, but I was so caught up in the history and dialogue, I was stunned as the story unfolded. A very interesting twist on WWI! A very strong 4.5. I could've done with a few more hot kisses.
