Patience was not one of Belle Gregory’s virtues. So when she finds herself lying flat on her back in the sand with a tone male body on top of her, she curses her loss of sight. But the doctor’s say she will see again, a fact that has Adam Parker very worried. He has no choice but to live with the damage done to his face by a roadside bomb more than a year ago, but can Belle? Or will she see only the scars and not what’s in his heart?

A nervous smile tilted up her lips. “Oh? What exactly did you have in mind?”

He pulled back and smoothed her hair from her face. “No. You’re beautiful, and I’m a guy,” he said with a chuckle that faded quickly. “Something happened when I landed on top of you, touched you. I just felt—I wanted to be with you. Learn all I could about you. Hell, I watched you out of the corner of my eye all day. I wanted to punch Tom for not inviting me over when he first met you and Dee.”
