Phoenix /fēniks/: (in classical mythology) a unique bird inhabiting the Arabian Desert that burned itself on a funeral pyre before rising from the ashes with renewed youth to live through another cycle.
This isn’t mythology, it’s war, and Hendy is left in the hands of Hell’s cruelest gatekeepers.
His team is killed before his very eyes, and despite his efforts to save them, he’s captured and subjected to merciless torture—losing virtually every piece of his identity but his pulse.
After his rescue, he returns home from Afghanistan, saddled with facing the daunting task of healing his physical scars as well as the invisible ones—his emotional demons.
Dr. Presley Cole isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. Embarking on a new journey, she makes it her mission to prove to Hendy that his life isn’t over; that he’s worthy of love.
Because sometimes even a phoenix needs help to rise...
Out of the Ashes.
**** 4 Star Review ****
Boldt's writing just gets better and better. Each book of hers I read seem to fight over the previous books as my favorite. I am not sure how she does it, but she makes me want to read romance. She pulls me in and doesn't let go!
Hendy's story is one of my favorite romance stories. Seriously, how could you not love him and want to see him with his own HEA? Tortured, self-loathing and lost. At the same time, a gentlemen of his own right. I knew from the start of this book that I was in for a great story!
Boldt's writing always seems to have that perfect mix of sexiness, emotions and light-heartedness. Her stories, this one included, are always multi-dimensional. There are enough other undertones with the main story, that I never seem to want to put her books down.
