When marketing executive Emily Price sees Army Staff Sergeant David “Hawk” Hawkins, with his good looks and piercing eyes, she know he’s the man she needs for the new Army recruitment campaign she is coordinating — and the man of her secret fantasies. But Hawk, who only took this assignment after losing a bet, is hardly eager to become the Army’s new poster boy. The only plus is stubborn and adorable Emily, and the single night of passion they share. But with his deployment to Afghanistan imminent, can Hawk and Emily hope for more than one night in each other’s arms? (SAMHAIN, Nov., 216 pp. $14.00)
