M/M Military Erotic Romance
They may be back on British soil, but the battle isn’t over.
When Captain Hugh Wilkes fell for his Afghan interpreter, Rustam Balkhi, he always knew things would never be easy. After months of complete secrecy, their return to England should have spelt an end to the sneaking around and the insane risks. But it seems there are many obstacles for them to overcome before they can truly be happy together. Can they get past those obstacles, or is this one battle too many for their fledgling relationship?
Author’s note: Although this story does work as a standalone tale, it’s recommended that you read the first instalment of the characters’ journey first—Desert Heat, which is available from all good retailers.

“Lucy Felthouse has done an amazing job building on the foundations of Book 1, ‘Desert Heat’… The way Ms. Felthouse brings to light the very real situations many face in their everyday lives in the pages of this book is commendable. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the sheet burning love scenes kept me turning the pages. The way these two men discover each others bodies and hearts was at times touching, times hilarious and most time spine tingling. A well-defined story and a great read, one I will be suggesting to friends.” GGR-Review
