`Megan Bradshaw lives up to her nickname, Miss Prudie. Until, that is, she spills ice water into the lap of the sexy soldier in seat 4B. Shamelessly she offers him a ride to wherever he's going, never mind that her life is overly complicated already.
Captain Duncan Fraser wants to stay in the Army, but isn't sure he'll be able to balance the family he longs for and his obligation to his country. Still, Megan is a lovely, interesting woman and he can't resist responding.
And that's when their responsibilities get in the way of their budding romance. Her rebellious twin sisters, his looming deployment, her mother's illness, his need to keep his destination secret, all threaten any chance of happy-ever-after.
When disaster strikes, will they realize that being together when they can is more important than being apart forever? Or is the cost of Freedom too high?
