Captain Suzann Redeker earned a Bronze Star for valor, one of the highest honors given by the Marine Corps. As leader of a Female Engagement Team that patrolled the combat zone, she took out four Taliban insurgents-but not before losing a soldier under her command and sustaining an injury that ended her military career. Now back home in rural Vermont, she's forced to chart a new life as a civilian.
From their very first kiss, Marleigh Anderhall knows Zann is the woman she is meant to marry. Valiant, dashing-the shining warrior she's always dreamed would sweep her off her feet. Surely they'll have all they could ever want-an idyllic life. But then Zann discovers something about that fateful day in Afghanistan that causes her to question her very identity. Would Marleigh still love her if she wasn't the hero everyone thought her to be?
