This book takes every cliche about military men and romance and flips it on its head. Giselle is the daughter of a Vice Admiral and lives with him in Italy. After a thwarted kidnapping where she is rescued by Raz Chayil, a Marine first lieutenant, her father signs her up for self-defense classes with Chayil. Thus begins the start of what you may assume is a classic romance. Let’s just say things get really tense and by the middle of the book Giselle doesn’t know who to trust anymore. Giselle is great character. She is both a woman of strength and vulnerable. I usually get irritated with heroines who don’t trust, but Giselle has got some good reasons to act the way she does. It makes for a fun, surprising book and eventually leads her character to the Lord.
