Captain Alexa Culver takes one look at shy, quiet Marine sniper Gage Hunter and feels an instant connection. But Gage has demons in his past that keep him from giving it to their mutual attraction. Alexa believes Gage is worth fighting for, and begins to slowly chip away at his defenses.

Gage Hunter has lost everyone he has ever loved. Lonely and broken, the last thing he expects is to meet someone like Alexa Culver. The redheaded beauty is confident and outgoing and makes Gage feel emotions he thought long buried. But before he risks revealing his heart to her she is kidnapped by the Taliban while on a humanitarian mission. Can Gage reach her before he loses his chance for love forever?

Gage smoothed his fingers down her cheek. When Alexa laid her cheek in his open palm, he felt a lump forming in his throat. She was fragile once again, so breakable. Gently, he kissed her lips, wanting desperately to infuse her with his energy, his love.
“Well take this an hour at a time, Alexa.
She lifted her chin, staring at him. What will happen to you, Gage? I-I know you cant leave Bagram, and I have a feeling Ill be leaving very soon. I told the flight surgeon I couldnt fly right now.She held up her hands, and he saw a slight tremor in them. She said, in a choked voice, “Im not fit to fly . . .”
Hearing the pain in her voice, knowing what it cost her to admit it, Gage placed his hands on her firm thighs. No one could, Alexa. No one,he said, and captured her hands, bringing them to his chest, pressing her palms against his shirt. Did the flight surgeon give you any help? Things that could assist you through this?
Yeah, some things,she said absently.
“Like?” he coaxed. Alexa was struggling not to cry again. He knew she hated crying, thinking it was a sign of weakness, but Gage knew differently. Hed cried buckets of tears after the murder of Jen and his father. Hed never wept so much in his life, and it would hit him out of the blue in the most unexpected times and places. He was seeing the same pattern in Alexa.
Grief, he realized, had its own way with each person, and Alexa had lost so much of herself in that cave that she had every right to grieve.
Alexa shakily wiped away the tears falling down her cheeks. S-she asked me what I wanted to do. What I felt in my heart and gut that would help me heal.Her lips twisted, glistening with tears.
And what did you tell her?It hurt Gage so damned much to see those tears continue to well up in her large, beautiful hazel eyes. Gage remembered back to when Alexa would laugh, her eyes shining the color of spring willow leaves and the gold of sunlight. He didnt see much of either of those colors now.
Sniffing, she whispered, My family owns a beautiful, rustic cabin in the Smoky Mountains. I love the mountains, Gage. I love their quiet, their solitude. My family would go there during July and August of every year, on weekends, because it was so miserably hot and humid in Washington, D.C.
Sounds nice,he murmured. Tell me about this special place.He could hear a slender thread of hope in her hoarse voice as she spoke about it. Gage knew if she could go home, go to that cabin, that it would support her healing. Alexa needed peace and quiet. She couldnt handle the daily challenges of life yet.
She reached for a tissue, blowing her nose and wiping it. Holding the crushed tissue between her hands, she said, It sits back off a four-hundred-foot cliff, up near the top of a mountain. I guess I love it because its so out of the way, so quiet. When I was there, I always felt like I was being pumped full of energy, I felt so alive when I was in that place. Thats why its so special to me.”

Sounds like a healing place for you,he said.
