From the first glimpse, Captain Nathan Fordham knew he was in trouble with Chief Warrant Officer Rachel Southwell who "dazzled him with her contradictions and intrigued him with her complexity." But there is no time for romance on this assignment. Working in conjunction with his brother, a Criminal Investigation Division major, Nate has a plan. He needs a woman without fear to make her vulnerable and with the strength to go after the big brass. He knows that Major General Walter Cornelius Donner must be stopped before he destroys another woman under his command with his sexual harassment. Rachel can outrun, out think, and out motivate almost any man in the Army. She willing accepts the most difficult assignment at the Pentagon in exchange for an opportunity to be closer to the son she left behind when she enlisted. With his life threatening asthma, Rachel needs to get him listed as dependent quickly. Rachel knows that failure on this assignment will end her career. With the growing attraction to Nate, she needs the assignment resolved just as quickly. Unfortunately, the general and a mysterious stalker are not above using her vulnerabilities to their own advantage.
