When it comes to choosing between advancing his career in the army or being truthful with the man he loves, Patrick learns everything ultimately boils down to trust.
Ambitious army captain, Patrick Bosworth, is eager for advancement in his army career so that he can live up to his family’s distinguished legacy in the army. But having been passed over for promotion to major twice already, Patrick fears his career has stalled and he worries he’ll never match the accomplishments of other family members, especially his brother, a bronze star recipient recently promoted to lieutenant colonel. When a superior office suggests a way to get the promotion that involves gathering information on a fellow army captain in the medical corps, Patrick reluctantly agrees to participate. He regrets the assignment almost immediately, especially when he falls for Craig, the guy he’s supposed to be investigating.
When he forms a passionate and intense bond with Craig, Patrick finds it difficult to separate where his professional obligations end and his personal feelings begin. After working for so long to prove himself a worthy member of the place his family holds in the army’s history, Patrick has to decide if finally finding the love of his life is worth sacrificing advancement in the army, or even giving up his career in the army itself.
