Eighteen months ago in Northern Afghanistan, Steve Langford, Nate Wyatt and others are in deep trouble after an IED explosion is followed by an assault.  Steve’s leg is trapped in their vehicle while Nate helps another wounded soldier to safety.  Before he can return to his BFF, an explosion kills Steve.  Stunned and feeling survivor guilt, Nate knows Steve asked him to take care of his widow Claire and their teenage son.

 

Claire travels from New Zealand to Los Angeles to ask Nate to come home to co-sign papers enabling her to sell her home so she can start a charter fishing business.  He ignored his late BFF’s dying plea because he cannot face Claire.  However, her coming to Southern California makes him realize he needs to honor that death bed vow he made so he returns to New Zealand. 

 

The key to this strong military romance is the impact of a soldier’s death in combat on his loved ones.  Nate and the Langford duet grieve their loss deeply but differently as Claire knows it is time to move on while the veteran wants to still hide.  As he shocks her with his caring, they begin to fall in love, but neither wants to harm her son or their memory of Steve.  Readers will appreciate this strong look at the impact of combat on a veteran and two dependents that chicken hawks ignore when they debate sending the young into war.
