Captain Ben Teague wants neither the responsibility of command or the commitment. But his request for release from active duty is denied, leaving him with little choice. Frustrated and angry, Ben sets about trying to get fired, wanting nothing to do with leading soldiers in a war he deems futile. But when the most beautiful and annoying woman enters his battalion, he starts to remember what he's fighting for...Major Olivia Hale is shocked by her reception in the battalion. As the person who is meant to formulate legal opinions that keep commanders out of trouble, she's greeted not as part of the team but as an obstruction. Yet Olivia sees more in Ben than he sees in himself and as the legal challenges in his new command grow, so too does the lust for one another. When a night of passion turns into something more, Ben and Olivia must find a way to hold on to their new found love in the midst of a stormy war.
