Navy SEAL Chief Wyatt Lockwood is fascinated by Marine sniper Captain Talia Culver.
But she wants nothing to do with him after learning of his reputation as a heartbreaker. The cocky Texan refuses to take the hint and keeps placing himself in Tal’s path.
When she agrees to help him tend to needy families in an Afghan village, she learns there’s more to this SEAL than meets the eye. But is she strong enough to risk having her heart broken again?
Wyatt can’t stay away from the beautiful, surly Marine. Tal is fascinating—and frustrating—and he is determined to crack through her tough exterior and get to know the soft woman he knows lurks beneath the surface.
When he joins Tal on a sniper mission in the Afghan mountains, their bond continues to grow. But the mission takes a dangerous turn. Has he lost his chance with Tal forever?
“Then a deluge of rain struck full force behind the hail. It was coming so fast and hard that Wyatt couldn’t see a foot outside the hide. He heard gurgling and looked to see water pouring in from upslope.
“Let’s get out of here,” Tal ordered him, yelling above the din. “Time to move!”
He grabbed the M4 and fastened it over his chest harness. “Roger that,” he growled, shifting to his hands and knees. He saw Tal slide up and out of the rear of the hide, heading up to that ridge a hundred feet above them.
And then Wyatt heard a horrendous cracking sound that vibrated through the air around them, throwing him onto his back, slamming him into the side of the hide. He heard Tal cry out. The whole earth shook around him as he scrambled to get to his knees and hands. Water poured into the hide like a tsunami, drenching him as he struggled to get up. There were
more cracking sounds, like wood being snapped in two by an unseen giant directly above the hide in the pounding rain.
He grunted and threw himself toward the rear of the now water-filled hide.
“Wyatt!” Tal cried, flattening onto her stomach at the edge of the hide, throwing her hand out toward him.
The water swirled angrily around him, jerking his boots from beneath him as it rose swiftly up to his neck. Wyatt cursed, lunging for her outstretched hand. He saw the terror in Tal’s eyes, her mouth contorted in a soundless cry as she stretched toward him. If he didn’t reach her hand, he was going to drown!
Wyatt grabbed on to Tal’s hand, surprised at her strength as she hauled back, dragging him toward her. Water rushed over his face, and he held his breath, closed his eyes, and pushed with the toes of his boots into the rocks under his feet. His head popped up out of the rushing, angry water now swirling within the hide before it raced down the side of the mountain. Spitting out muddy water, his eyesight blurred by it, he felt Tal hauling him out of there. God, she was strong!
