Pediatrician Dara McKinley loves her job. So how could she say no when her sister asks her to come to Kabul for a few weeks to offer medical assistance at a local orphanage? Terrified of the dangers surrounding her, Dara finds unexpected solace in the protective arms of Sergeant Matt Culver. Transfixed by the warrior with the exotic gold eyes, can Dara overcome her fears?

Matt, a Delta Force operator, has always listened to his instincts, and they have yet to steer him wrong. So when he sees the alluring blond belly dancer at Bagram’s annual holiday show, he knows without a doubt that she’s “the one.” Now he just has to convince her to take a chance on him…and love. If they survive…

HEY, CULVER, COME on. Theres a Thanksgiving show over at the main chow hall,” Beau Gardner drawled, grabbing his best friend by the upper arm. Get your sorry ass up and lets go.” 

Matt gave him a cranky look. He sat on a bench in the locker room of CAG/Delta Force HQ at Bagram, pulling his scarred, dusty boots off his aching feet. You go,” he muttered, Im not up for it.” 

Theyd just come off a bitch of a three-day mission chasing down Taliban near the Af-Pak border. The rest of Matts five-man team was now cleaning their weapons, then storing them in their lockers in the buildings cramped quarters. 

All I want is a hot shower, food, and a bunk,” Matt groaned. Im wiped.” 

Beau, who was naked and getting ready to shower, said, Its three days to Thanksgiving here at Bagram, and none of us are goin’ home for the holiday, bro. The charity girls are joining the USO folks and are putting on a talent show over at the chow hall for all of us.” He punched Matt in the arm. Hey, its women! At least we can sit and slobber, even if we cant touch em.” 

Matt pushed his dark brown hair streaked with gold off his brow and grumpily looked up at his tall, lanky buddy. He and Beau had been in Delta Force now for five years and had forged a solid friendship. Im done in,” he said. All I want is to shower and get about three days’ worth of sleep.” 

But Beau wasnt about to give up. Hey, Ive heard theres a lot of good-lookin’ women over there. Come on, grab a shower and lets go to the chow hall, eat, and take in the show.” 

Growling, Matt shoved off his boot and tipped it over, sand spilling out onto the concrete floor. Jesus, Beau. You are a total pain in the ass. Now get off my back, damn it, so I can take my shower.

Chuckling, Beau said, Hey, youre our team leader. You gotta be there to represent us.” 

Like hell, Matt thought. His back was stiff from a twenty-foot fall hed taken off a cliff in the middle of the night. Hed been wearing NVGs, night-vision goggles, but was running after a fleeing Taliban group and hadnt seen that the hill they were on suddenly dropped off. He wasnt alone in taking a tumble, either. But right now, his hips, knee joints, and elbows were so stiff that all he wanted was to feel some steaming shower water massage the pain away.
