My Review:

The heroine Emily Beale is a captain of SOAR (Special Operations Aviation Regiment of the Army) who loves her job and earned her place in a man's world.  She's a take-charge, tough, smart kick-ass women who loves to fly into high stress combat zones.  Then she is pulled off the job to act as the First Lady's personal chief and bodyguard which makes her very unhappy.

The hero Mark Henderson is Major of SOAR and he's known as a hard ass.  No one can please him and when you do well you need to up the ante the next time.  He never shows anyone his human side especially his attraction to Emily.  He's ticked off when she is pulled from his team because he's attracted to her and she's his best pilot.  When she is injured he's right by her side but he's gone by morning. Then when he hears what her mission is he insinuates himself into the scene by playing her ex-boyfriend.

The action scenes were well written, heart pulsing and surreal.  I really enjoyed the technical aspects of the story with how well the description of the helicopters were detailed and Emily's passion for them.

The romance between Mark and Emily is against Army policy (no fraternizing between subordinates) but it was tender, caring, hot and sweet.  You can tell Mark really cares for Emily and wants to protect her from harm.
