Released: September 2012

Jennifer's always been big on helping people.  Becoming a pen pal to a Marine overseas seemed like a good idea.  Before long, they hit it off, and through their communications, something more than friendship was formed.  She was even eager to meet him in person when he got back.  But that was before the accident that left Jennifer scarred both inside and out.  Feeling like an outcast and unwilling to deal with Gage's pity, she keeps the accident a secret and cuts off all ties with him.  Too bad for her he's not willing to give up on her that easily.  Now back in the States, he attends a costume ball and meets Jennifer.  Behind their masks Gage can find out what really happened to make her pull away, and Jennifer can pretend she's not flawed.  And when passion flares and they fall into bed together, masks and all, Gage is sure those walls have crumbled.  But in the aftermath of passion, he must use all his skills if he has any chance to keep the one woman who made his time overseas bearable, and makes him believe that a future with this stunning woman is possible.

This was a tender love story about healing our wounds, and believing in someone enough to not give up on them, no matter how bad it gets.  You can feel Jennifer's pain as she struggles to break ties with Gage, knowing she doesn't want to.  And seeing Gage unwilling to give up on her makes you really believe in the power of love.
