Former Marine Alex McCray is ripped up inside over the knowledge that his best friend died saving him. Now he's returned to his hometown to honor a promise he made—to take care of his buddy's widow. Semper fidelis. “Always loyal.” But Alex's loyalty is about to be tested, because there's never been a time when Reagan Sanders didn't make him burn with desire.
All it takes is one night for Reagan and Alex to give in to the deep, carnal need they've denied themselves for so long. But Reagan has secrets of her own―secrets Alex can never know about her marriage, or the kind of man her husband really was. But one night with Alex isn't enough. Not even close. Now Alex must choose between his sense of honor...and his heart.
