Love and war become one and the same in the arms of a wounded soldier. Will an unplanned dinner serve up heaven or hell for dessert?
Army Staff Sergeant Mason Haller is forced to retire from his military career after an IED bomb leaves him severely disabled. His homecoming is not what he expected. Family and friends are unable to accept the fallout of his condition. When his girlfriend moves out, Mason turns to drinking. He discovers that alcohol and psychotherapy drugs are a dangerous mix when demons of war come calling.

When Sydnie wakes up to Mason plowing her driveway the following morning, she is pleasantly surprised and offers to cook him dinner. What happens next terrifies her yet she can’t deny the strong attraction between them. Can she pull him from his darkness or
will he be forever trapped in the battle raging in his mind?
