Alaina Abbott is anxious to get started on her new career as an international correspondent in Vietnam. Beautiful, yet tenacious when it comes to getting the scoop, she’s determined to make it in this “man’s world” of war and journalism.
Colonel Robert E. Lee Blackhart hails from Virginia, but he is no southern gentleman. As commanding officer of the Red Phoenix division of the United States Air Force, he is a military man all the way. His men either love him or hate him and the women in his life all love him… until he leaves. Parker Bradford, Blackhart’s subordinate and Alaina’s former college sweetheart struggles to find his way back into her heart.
Alaina finds war torn Vietnam not at all as she expected it. There are no clear-cut friends or enemies and one wrong move can cost you your life. She has some difficult choices to make and discovers a kind of love that she could never have dreamed possible. Will it cost her everything she believes in as well as her career?
This novel has it all, suspense, action, adventure, and romance. Marie Carroll has done an exceptional job in creating interesting yet believable characters. Her descriptions of the landscapes are breathtaking and you feel as though you can actually see and feel Southeast Asia. This is one book that has it all, it is a fun and exciting page-turner to the very end.
