It’s been a year since Ryan O’Connor buried his wife. He was in Afghanistan as a SEAL medic when the call came in that she’d been killed during a robbery. In that time, he returned home, nursed his grief, and joined his former brothers-in-arms in the K2 Special Services.

After breaking up with her psycho ex, Charlene “Charlie” Morgan finds happiness only when flying the friendly skies—as an acrobatic stunt pilot. But the skies aren’t so friendly when her plane troubles turn out to be the work of sabotage.

Looking to forget their worries, Charlie and Ryan run into each other at a bar. The chemistry is instant and intense. It’s only supposed to be a one-night stand. But the memory of their passionate kiss lingers, and when Ryan shows up at Charlie’s flight school, their romance takes off. Yet the route to love has its own turbulence—secrets, lies, and danger. Can one night lead to something lasting?

There were no clouds overhead, and as Charlie peered up at billions of stars twinkling in a velvet black sky, she pulled her T-shirt over her head, and then slid her jeans down her legs. Too chicken to remove her bra and panties, she turned and walked down to the water, feeling daring. She had never done anything like that before and wondered why not.
Walking into the surf until she was thigh deep, she laughed when a wave almost knocked her over. The water was cold but not freezing, and she turned so that the oncoming wave would hit her in the back. In front of her, Ryan stood in water up to his knees, not a stitch on. As if she were metal to his magnet, she went to him.
“You’re like a sea goddess, here to bewitch me,” he said when she was inches from him.
“You have a glib tongue,” she answered.
“I’m Irish. Glib is in my blood.”
“I’m good with your being Irish, but I’m really fond of your tongue.”
The white of his teeth gleamed in the moonlight when he grinned. “I think you should prove to me just how fond of it you are.”
She took a step closer. “You have no clothes on.”
“I’m doing something wrong if you’re just now noticing that, Charlie.”
“Oh, believe me, I noticed.”
Taking her hand, he led her deeper into the gulf, past where the waves were breaking. Although his chest and head were above the water, she was on her tiptoes. When he realized she was struggling not to swallow salt water, he laughed.

She regrets nothing.
