Afghanistan, a land of relentless temperatures, dust and sand with danger lurking at every turn and at every footfall, and a war that does not discriminate between enemy, friends or lovers.

Life on deployment is traumatic and fraught for Corporal Katie Walker, a career British Army Combat Trauma Medic. There is no time for relationships, they would create more complications than she can handle. Giving your heart to someone is to risk losing them and she has no intention of taking that enormous chance.

However, in the unlikeliest of places she meets US Marine Staff Sergeant Joe Anderson, a hardened, grizzled veteran and a ‘by the book’ career Marine. Committed to his mistress, the US Marine Corp, he has never wanted a woman until he meets the pretty medic.

Attraction between them is instantaneous and intense but living their lives on the edge, away from loved ones and the warmth of home, is what Katie and Joe feeling real or an illusion? When denial of their feelings overcomes duty and danger, they come to realise that love can bloom and flourish, bringing to two people a small piece of happiness and warmth amidst hardship and terror.

Born on the foundations of combat with its harsh realities, cruel environment and conflict, can their deep love for each other survive or is it destined to perish, destroyed by tragedy and loss?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of violence.

Sharon Kimbra Walsh - Female First feature

I always wanted to be different and live life outside the box. I never went so far as to play truant from school or run foul of the police, but obeying rules was never my thing. If my dad told me no, I promptly went ahead and did it anyway-so why, at the impressionable age of 14, did I have the insane idea of joining the Women's Royal Air Force? I have still not found that answer to this day.

It was at the delicate age of 14, that I first put pen or pencil to paper (or anything I could get my hands on, on which I could write legibly).
