Gabe Thompson enlisted to help out his buddy, but three years later he’s 100% US military bad boy, serving in the desert of Afghanistan where the days are hot, but the nights are hotter.
Alexis Garcia is out to save the world. The University of Texas freshman has come to Afghanistan to do aid work with the United Nations. She’s all about the peace, and she has no use for the camp’s biggest, baddest, gun toting player.
But, sometimes camouflage is more than a color, and people aren’t what they seem. When conflict develops not only between Gabe and Alexis, but also all around them, they’re forced to look deeper, and what they find will rock their worlds and change their hearts forever.
Nick Carlisle looks like a carefree college surfer. His blue eyes, dark hair and hot body have been the downfall of many a girl on many a beach. But, Nick’s hiding something from his past, something that happened while he served in the military in Afghanistan, and with his secret, he’s hiding his heart. When Nick meets Lyndsey though, he may be ready to stop hiding and let her in.
Lyndsey Anderson is young, blond, and the most beautiful girl Nick’s ever seen. She’s living the life in Hawaii, serving craft brews at the local Bar and Grill, and breaking the hearts of every guy who walks through the door. But, she’s hiding a dark past and a secret she’s never told a soul. Now, Nick’s pushing her to open her heart, but will he feel the same way once he knows what she’s done?
Nick and Lyndsey discover a heat that rivals the Hawaiian sun, but will sand, sex, and surf be enough to fix these damaged souls? Can they find happiness, or will they always have to run from what they’ve hidden?
Two years ago, Gabe Thompson stood in the desert of Afghanistan and watched the love of his life drive away. When his tour of duty ended six months later, she wasn’t waiting. Now Gabe’s ready to go after the one thing his life is missing – the woman he’s never been able to forget. Twenty-year-old Alexis Garcia rues the day she decided to volunteer for a UN mission to Afghanistan. The sexy, exasperating soldier she met there nearly destroyed her carefully constructed life with the boy next door. She’s spent two years trying to forget Gabe, working to show her parents and her boyfriend that she knows where she belongs. But when Gabe shows up at Alexis’s door, complete with tattoos, a Harley and enough attitude to start another war, everything she’s tried to conceal could be exposed, starting with her heart.
