When Staff Sergeant Rowan McKinley is charged with murder, she wants the best defense counsel the Marine Corps has to offer—Captain Phillip Stuart. Phillip swore he'd never have anything to do with the one woman who broke his heart, yet he doesn't hesitate to answer her plea for help. The love and passion each thought gone sparks to life, only now it is forbidden by military law. Knowing the rules and adhering to them are very different matters. But who should make the sacrifice when both are destined to soar to the tops of their ranks? The choice might just be taken from their hands, for there is a killer with just as much to lose. This is a man who will stop at nothing to protect his identity, even if that means threatening the one link between Phillip and Rowan—a son Phillip never knew she bore him.
