Melanie never stopped worrying about Gale each time he headed off to war. But he’s never been there when she needed him and she’s had fifteen years to steel her heart against him. 
But when Gale moves to Fort Hood, he finally has a chance to make things right with Melanie and the daughter she raised without him.

I thought I could do this. I thought I could leave the war behind. 


I was wrong. I can’t do this. I can’t go to class and pretend like everything is normal. That I’m normal. I’m not. I’ve lost everything that matters to me. But I made a promise. 


And if I’m going to keep that promise, I have to focus. I have to pretend that I belong on this southern campus that drips with old money. 


And I have to pass stats. That’s where Beth comes in. 


I’m terrified she’ll see through me. That the careful lies

and easy smile won’t be enough to convince her that everything is fine. 


That she’ll see how broken I really am.  


But there’s something about her that draws me closer. A

sadness in her eyes that am powerless to resist. 


I should walk away. Protect her from the broken, darkness in

me. 


Before we both fall into something neither of us can control 



Stay focused. Get a job. Save her father’s life.  

Beth Lamont knows far too much about the harsh realities of life her gilded classmates have only read about in class. She’ll do whatever it takes to take care of her father, even if that means tutoring a guy like Noah - a guy who represents everything she hates about the war, soldiers and what the Army has done to her family.  

Noah Warren doesn’t know how to be a student. All he knows is war. But he’s going to college now to fulfill a promise and he doesn’t break his promises. Except he doesn’t count on his tutor being drop dead gorgeous and distracting as hell. One look at Beth threatens to unravel the careful lies Noah has constructed around him. 

A simple arrangement turns into something neither of them can deny. And a war that neither of them can forget could destroy them both. 

The darkness never forgets…

Caleb Gregory has spent ten years hiding in the dark, refusing to speak about the night his young life was destroyed. In his anger and his rage, he drank and fought until he drove everyone away until he had no one left. 

The light casts a long shadow…

Nalini King has devoted her post army life to her passion: using yoga to heal her fellow soldiers. In doing so, she’s worked to forget the night her life burned down around her.

An unexpected storm…

When a storm forces them into the darkness together, these two wounded souls must face the demons of their past. 


Because it is only in the darkest night that we can truly see the light.
