A SOLDIER’S SECOND CHANCE 2016 New Indie Release
Of all the ERs in all the world, he had to walk into hers…
Thirteen years back Beck Braxton enlisted in the Army and left town, but not before asking his girl to wait for him. She didn’t. Now he’s part of the elite L.A.P.D. SWAT team and he needs a skills refresher course before he deploys next month as a National Guard Medic. Because of his crazy SWAT schedule, arrangements are made with the head ER doctor from St. Stephen’s Hospital to accommodate him. But there’s something suspiciously familiar about the drab nurse he’s assigned to.
January Stewart gave up being that bubbly, carefree girl who’d fallen in love with her high school bad boy when she was forced to make a painful decision all by herself. Thirteen years later, drastically changed by life both inside and out, she goes by the name Jan Ashworth and is harboring a huge secret. She has also been assigned to work with Officer Braxton. He may soon realize she’s the girl who broke his heart while he was deployed, but he doesn’t know the half of it.
Now forced to work together, the ER nurse with every last bit of twinkle and glimmer erased, and Beck, the former wild child turned police officer, must face their past and remember that special feeling that once sizzled between them.
She owes him the truth. He wants to get even. But that old chemistry keeps messing up their plans.
