Pediatrician Dara McKinley loves her job. So how could she say no when her sister asks her to come to Kabul for a few weeks to offer medical assistance at a local orphanage? Terrified of the dangers surrounding her, Dara finds unexpected solace in the protective arms of Sergeant Matt Culver. Transfixed by the warrior with the exotic gold eyes, can Dara overcome her fears?
Matt, a Delta Force operator, has always listened to his instincts, and they have yet to steer him wrong. So when he sees the alluring blond belly dancer at Bagram’s annual holiday show, he knows without a doubt that she’s “the one.” Now he just has to convince her to take a chance on him…and love. If they survive…

Dara was touched to tears when Hadi and his family came out to the cold, dark LZ, to tell them good-bye. They all hugged and thanked her while Matt translated from Pashto so she’d know what they were saying. By the time they heard the Black Hawk coming over the mountain with its Apache escort, the whole village was there. Matt shook hands and was slapped on the back and thanked. The women of the village huddled around Dara, hugging her, thanking her.
Matt turned his body away from the landing Black Hawk, whose rotors were throwing up debris at over a hundred miles an hour. He kept his arm around Dara’s waist, her back against his front, protecting her from the pummeling gusts of air from the blades. Above them, moving in a slow, wide circle outside the mountain village, the Apache wolves prowled the dark skies with their body-heat-seeking instruments, looking for Taliban.
The crew chief slid open the door on the landed helo. Matt turned, keeping Dara in his grip, the wind battering them. The Black Hawk would idle at eighty-five miles an hour, takeoff speed, in case an RPG or other attack came out of nowhere.
Dara had thrown her hands up to her face, protecting her eyes, and limped beneath Matt’s arm as he moved her to the lip of the aircraft. The crew chief, wearing a helmet, grabbed her other arm, helping her into the cabin. As Matt leaped in, he saw a combat medic come forward, place a helmet on Dara’s head, and then guide her to a litter attached to the bulkhead of the helicopter.
Matt grabbed another helmet and put it on, not wanting the earsplitting noise of the twin jet engines above the ceiling to ruin his hearing. As he walked over to Dara’s litter, near her head, he plugged the cord from her helmet into the ICS, intercommunication system, panel so she could hear everyone speak. He then plugged his in as the combat medic came over and placed a blanket over her and began to ask her a series of medical questions. Matt remained with his hand on Dara’s shoulder to let her know he was nearby but stayed out of the way to allow the highly trained combat medic to do his job.
The Black Hawk lifted off, the g-forces pushing Matt downward. He spread his feet to keep his balance and heard Dara answering the medic’s questions. He was pleased to see that the medic was good. He’d even gotten her to laugh once. Matt held all combat medics in high regard. Looking around, he could see directly into the cockpit, where the two pilots sat before a low-lit console. He could see stars out of the side window of the helo as the Black Hawk surged upward, well over five thousand feet above the mountain they’d just crossed. The bird shook and quivered around him and beneath his feet.
