Interludes:Sometimes when you are under the impression something is only a brief rendezvous, nothing but an interlude, it has other ideas, takes over, and becomes permanent.
An ephemeral touch of skin upon skin. A fleeting passionate look. A tantalising moment with an intoxicating scent. Any of these things can lead to more. But when it does and morning comes will the attraction fade or is it possible that that which began with something so small, could grow into that which will last a lifetime?
Temporary Home by Aliyah BurkeBook one in the Interludes SeriesSometimes past demons need to be faced before one can embrace what the future offers, and who better to slay them than a Marine?
Gunnery Sergeant Sam Hoch travels to the Pac Norwest upon receiving word his mentor and the closest thing to a father he’s had, has taken a turn for the worse and is in the hospital. Once there he meets a woman who is unlike any he’s ever met before. A former Marine herself, she opens up her home to him so he can be near his family.
Roxi Mammon isn’t positive it was smart to allow Sam to stay with her, not with her immediate physical reaction to him. She’d heard tales of him from her best friend, his sister, and now having met him she is even more impressed by the man the Corps has turned him into. Silent strong type. Passion grows between them and soon she finds herself falling for the Recon Marine. And falling hard.
As things escalate between them, Sam has to accept his past doesn’t control him if he plans on keeping Roxi in his future. Can he understand that this is the one woman who can give him something more? Will he silence the fear within him and tell Roxi she’s the one for him? Will he realise that he deserves more than just a temporary home?Aliyah Burke
