Talia is home on leave from overseas for the holidays, but unlike all the other soliders who get off the plane with her Talia doesn't expect anyone to pick her up. The only family she has left, her mother, and she haven't had the best relationship over the years.
Talia is excited and completely surprised to find her friend Angie and Angie's brother Liam waiting at the airport. What she isn't surprised to find when she gets home is her mother's life in a mess.
Liam has waited a long time for Talia and now that she is home he is determined to spend time with her and let her know exactly how he feels about her. Talia is attracted to Liam, but Liam isn't for her. She loves his family too much to get into a relationship that would end when Liam finds out how messed up her mother really is.
On leave for Thanksgiving, the last thing marine lieutenant Talia Barnett expects to find is Liam Brodie waiting for her at the airport. He's had a starring role in her fantasies for the past two years, and although she'd love to make them a reality, she has a dark secret that prevents her from taking things further.
A former marine, Liam's specialty is planning tactical operations, and that's just what he plans to do to win Talia. The woman has kept him at arm's length for too long, and this time he's finally going to claim her--body and heart.
What begins as comfort quickly turns hot. When Liam shows Talia a hint of the dominant nature inside him, the submissive part of her flares to life. Though she desires him, she's going back on deployment and doesn't want to dump all her drama on him. Will he find a way to break through the protective walls around her heart and convince her they have a future that goes far beyond the bedroom?
