Gunny's whole life has been the military. He joined the cadets at age twelve, the navy at age seventeen, and was posted overseas just after his eighteenth birthday. He cheated death so often he figured his luck was sure to run out, so now he's retired. With no money, no qualifications, no civilian friends, no life. He wants Catherine the moment he sees her. But with no job and no desire to return to Afghanistan, he has nothing to offer her, except himself. And who'd want him?
Catherine has her own battles to fight, her own problems to solve, and her own life choices to live with. She hasn't got time for anything else right now. How far will they go for love?
