Desperate to shake herself free from the humiliation of a very public divorce, TV financial correspondent Vi Owens makes a deal with a Navy SEAL commander who can wipe her slate clean: one date in the public eye. One night of unrivaled temptation. No strings attached. Just weeks before he deploys, Captain Joe Shey can't resist the intriguing offer from the sister-in-law of a fellow SEAL. As commander of the teams in Little Creek, however, there's something he'll need in return...something that makes Vi realize she's struck a deal with a man she can't resist. But when tragedy strikes and a life is shattered, Vi and the hardened SEAL might discover a depth of passion they never knew existed.
