USA Today Bestselling Author
A forbidden, short-lived military romance could lead to lifelong happiness…or unbearable heartbreak.
Air Force Sergeant Cass Miles is all too familiar with the pitfalls of on-base romances—to the tune of one failed marriage and a bitter ex. Even if it wasn’t against regs to get involved with her fellow Airmen, she wouldn’t have any interest in that kind of relationship.
Until she sees Rip.
As a Navy SEAL, Rip is used to getting plenty of attention when he and his teammates step on base, especially from the ladies. It happens so often that the attention from the opposite sex doesn’t even register anymore.
Until he sees Cass.
With only days together and the threat of discovery looming, can this unlikely couple find their way to true love?
Desert Alpha is part of Kristen Proby’s With Me in Seattle Universe.
As this book opens Air Force Sergeant Cass Miles is heading to breakfast. She runs into her friend Lori from Public Affairs, who is also on line for food. It’s Lori who informs her some SEALs were stopping by for some R&R, in fact they’re already on base. Cass hadn’t been contacted but since she’s the Lodging Manager in charge of temporary housing she leaves the line to get to her office. Her desk sergeant was hurrying toward her as she left the dining facility. He has the information she needs and offers to grab her breakfast as she rushes to see what’s available for their guests. Something close to the workout area and gym would be good since they like to keep active even while relaxing.
As the guys were waiting for their Master Chief to let them know where they were going to bunk, Rip, Hummer, Scotty and King were extoling the virtues of hot meals, mattresses and running water.
Rip caught his first glimpse of Cass at the dining facility, but couldn’t approach her. There were rules for deployed locations including the no fraternization policy. It was the same everywhere but a perk of being a SEAL was mostly the rules didn’t matter. The question would be if he could convince her.
Cass and her friend Lori got their first close look at the SEALs during their nightly walk. They were playing volleyball, shirtless. Shirtless was against the rules, but the SEALs apparently could get away with it.
A fun night at the Cantina leads to a meet at the pool and another night at the Cantina with Lori and Cass hanging with the SEALs and a very steamy forbidden rendezvous for Cass and RIP.
Lots of fun with a touch of angst and plenty of sizzle.
