The Army is everything to Lieutenant Colonel Mitch Dugan; not just a career, but a calling. Growing up, his grandfather gave him the structure and guidance that his parents never could, and to follow in the old man’s footsteps is an honor.

Photography was considered nothing more than a flight of fancy by her Brigadier General father, but for Eden Walters it is as much a part of her as breathing. She thrives on looking through the lens and capturing that perfect moment in time.

Stepping onto an Army base gives Eden a definite sense of claustrophobia; she can practically feel the oppressive weight of all of those rules and regulations bearing down on her. But she made a promise to do this shoot, and really how bad is it to be surrounded by countless sexy hard bodies? One body in particular seems to have knocked her for a loop, but Eden is resilient if nothing else; and rapidly takes matters into her own hands, or is that lips? He is an Army Special Forces paratrooper for crying out loud, trained in combat, strategic planning, and never anything but cool under pressure, but after one kiss, Mitch’s world is completely unhinged.

This is a recipe for success if I ever saw one: take One Male (intelligent, uniformed, and of course Ripped!), add One Female (driven, sexy, and totally independent), throw in a few sexy commands, mix well, and you have a devilishly decadent main dish. Mitch and Eden never try to pretend or deny who they are, or what they want out of life, and I love how they express that without condemnation. They have nothing but respect for each other, and it shows in every scene. Add in some hot and heavy, and be prepared to sweat because this one does not stop!
