Pathos and humor combine in this emotionally charged, back-from-the-dead military romance by award-winning author Karina Bliss, where telling the truth could lose you everything.
"I can't let you get over me...because I'm never going to get over you."
After eighteen months as a POW presumed dead, SAS soldier Lee Davis is finally going home. Back to his family, friends and...fiancée? Except the night before his last deployment Juliet Browne rejected his proposal. Which makes the sight of her playing the grieving almost-wife beyond infuriating. Feigning amnesia, Lee puts Jules's commitment to the test.
Yet tormenting her conscience isn't as easy as he thought it would be. She's still the woman whose memory got him through the worst of his captivity and her actions now prove she cares—a lot. And despite her betrayal, he needs her more than ever. Because Lee is beginning to realize that for him, Jules is home.
