Criminal Investigator Braylon Wexler has arrived in Hilton Head Island to dutifully serve his country on Paris Island Military base. As soon as he arrives the calm he's been longing for is pleasantly shattered by the tantalizing stormy presence of Sandella Summers. She is an unexpected surprise that stirs a hot longing in him, like a hot poker through blazing coals.
Sandella Summers is perfectly happy with baking her pies, her life is simple and pleasing, just the way she likes it. But her contentment is interrupted by the appearance of Braylon Wexler, a seductive and arrogant Marine, not her typical choice in a man.
Sandella holds a secret to her heart, slowing Braylon down in his quest to win her over. But Braylon excites Sandella in ways she never thought possible. Braylon is a man of honor and he's determined to not only to win her heart, but bring her family to closure of a deeply rooted conflict.
As danger and menace ensue the two lovers, can they make peace with the past and truly let love heal? Will Braylon risk his heart and his life to get everything he wants?

I've tried multiple times to get through this story, but I just can't. The premise isn't terrible, but the storyline quickly becomes ludicrous and the narration doesn't help. The character's tones don't match their moods or the context of their thoughts/conversations, and I'm almost positive some of their names (at least the hero's) is being pronounced wrong. The characters' unspoken thoughts are often witty and interesting, but the things they actually say and do are boring. Perhaps I'll try again at some point since I've paid for the book, but for now--I just can't.
