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?
“The ‘if only’s’ of life plague both of us,” Alexa offered him, looking deep into his troubled blue eyes, which were filled now with agony. “If only I hadn’t decided to go out to that village. If only I didn’t believe in helping others who have less than I do.” Alexa reached up, brushing a few strands of hair off his furrowed brow. “But there are positive ‘if only’s’ too, Gage. If only I hadn’t decided at the last minute to meet Matt at the canteen. I wouldn’t have met you. If only I hadn’t kissed you in the Humvee . . . well, you know the rest.”
She gave him a sad smile, her hand grazing his face, all her love in that touch. “If only you didn’t have the courage to kiss me back. We can’t live our lives in that kind of tortured state. We can only do our best at the time, Gage. That’s as good as it’s going to get for all of us.”
“I know you’re right,” he offered gruffly, moving his fingers along her shoulders, feeling the heat of her skin beneath the fabric. “There are better days when I can put it in that perspective. And then there are worse days when I sink down into the guilt regarding Jen. My one act got not only her murdered but my dad as well. And it broke my mother in ways I can’t even begin to imagine.”
She whispered his name, leaning up, her lips brushing his mouth. He’d withheld so much pain from the past. Her fingers gliding upward, framing his face, she opened her lips, feeling his hungry response to her, hearing a groan come from deep within him. For this one moment, Alexa wanted to give back to Gage. Yes, she’d had part of her soul destroyed by the captivity and torture. She knew she’d never get it back. But Gage? He had been a thirteen-year-old boy who had been snared in a circumstance no one could have foreseen.
Her heart opened wide, wanting to surround Gage with angel wings, wanting to give back to him all the love, care, and tenderness he’d always effortlessly given her. This was the man she loved. And that had never been clearer than it was right now.
