Setting: California, Caribbean San Escobal
Marton's opener for her newest S.T.U.D. series proves modern warriors can fight both the bad guys and their haunting pasts when the right woman comes along. Hard bodies and soft hearts get paired when sexy as hell elite soldiers do their duty for feisty women who have no time for romance- or for being rescued even though they desperately need it.
Tanner wants nothing more than to be returned to active status. The wound he suffered in his last assignment has kept him from his duty- but having to go rescue the pampered daughter of a top general is not what he had in mind. Neither is the woman herself, or how his just-healed injury will put them both in grave danger. He will have to trust Alessandra's help if they are to survive the mission, and he will have to trust her passion if they are to find a way to be together afterward.
