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!
    He heard her grunting, taking his weight, breathing hard as she grabbed at his other hand.
    As Wyatt crawled out of the destroyed hide with her help, Tal released him, fighting to get to her feet. The veil of rain was so thick, he couldn’t see anything but the two of them. He struggled through the slippery mire of mud and rocks, getting to his knees.
    Tal turned, sheltering him with her body. Spitting out water he’d nearly swallowed, Wyatt wanted to yell at her to get the hell away from him and up to the safety of the ridge in front of them. But she wouldn’t leave him, her hands curving around his waist, starting to lift him upward.
    There were sharp snapping sounds echoing around them. It sounded ugly. Just as Wyatt got his feet beneath him, he jerked his attention to the left. His eyes widened as he saw a huge, broken tree coming out of the pall of rain, sailing straight at them like a hurled spear. With a grunt, he shoved Tal away from him, sending her flying toward the ridge.
    Branches from the hurtling tree crashed into Wyatt, spinning him around, knocking him off his feet. He found himself tumbling through the air. Slamming into the rocks on his back, he grunted again, his Kevlar vest taking the brunt of the jarring impact as he hit the rocky slope. He let out an “Oomph!” as the air was completely knocked out of him.
    The tree trunk landed with a crash six feet away from him, continuing its swift slide down the slope, dragging him along with it. The branches slapped and swatted at Wyatt as he rolled away from it, trying to find purchase elsewhere on the slippery, wet rocks. His fingers turned into claws as he repeatedly dug in and tried to slow his slide while being dragged farther downward by the tree’s momentum.
    Lightning zigzagged above him. The booming sound of thunder followed instantly, and the brutal vibration slammed him down onto the slope again. Cursing, Wyatt grappled and slipped. He had to find Tal!
    Where was she? Where?
    “Tal!” he yelled, his voice cracking. “Where are you?” He lurched to his bruised, bleeding knees, clawing at the rocks to remain upright. The rain was so heavy, he couldn’t see anywhere around him. Momentarily disoriented, Wyatt forced himself to his feet, half-crawling up the slope, hoping he was going in the right direction, disoriented.
    More snapping sounds rocketed into the storm. Wyatt jerked his chin up toward the cliff above them, where the sounds were coming from.”
