In Love and War
Ariela Perrine watched how loving a self-sacrificing hero destroyed her mother and left her orphaned at a young age, so, yes, she does tend to go out with lackluster men (with predictable results). But she’s safe. And bored, at least until an accident brings the interior decorator face to face with an unforgettable pair of blue eyes, a playful smile, and his overly affectionate dog.
Journalist Dylan Bond makes her sizzle, but dare she risk it? After all, he’s just returned from Iraq – a war zone, for crying out loud. With his assurance that he’s back to covering domestic stories, her fears are allayed and their relationship hits the tarmac at a dizzying speed.
But then an unexpected phone call lures Dylan into danger for one final, coveted assignment and he falls off everyone’s radar outside the green zone. Sensing something’s gone desperately wrong, Ariela’s ready to make a deal with the devil to find him and get him back safe. As she searches for the man she loves, Ariela discovers that she’s far more resilient than she realized. But will it be enough to preserve her as the days of fear and panic stretch on?
