    Honorably discharged from the Army after an explosion nearly killed her, former military psychiatrist Brooke Adams has set up shop to help others--but her days of helping military personnel are over. She's got her own battles to fight from her time overseas, and she's not equipped to take on more. Former Army Special Ops Sergeant First Class Asher James could handle anything that war sent his way--terrorists, bombs, bullets. The only thing that scares him now is sleep. As the shadows close in, the nightmares begin. 
     
    Finally convinced that he needs help, Asher makes an appointment with a counselor, and Brooke is pressed by her boss to take him on. When he arrives at her office she isn't there--but a dead body is. Brooke is devastated when she walks in, and Asher is a conveniently strong shoulder to cry on. But she can't take him on as a client after sharing such an intimate and unprofessional moment, can she? And he's not sure he can handle sharing his deepest fears with such a beautiful woman. 
     
    When it becomes clear that Brooke was the real target of the attack--and that her secrets go even deeper than his own--Asher vows to protect her no matter what.  
     
    Bestselling author Lynette Eason is back with a new series that spans the globe and will have your heart working overtime.

    This
    book is intended for both ministers and laymen. It will be of help to the
    minister in suggesting to him how to make full proof of his own ministry and
    how to get his people to work. It will be of help to laymen in pointing out to
    them many fields of fruitful labor for Christ.
    
    The Church of Christ is full of people who wish to work for their
    Master but do not know how. This book is intended to tell them how. It contains
    no untried theories, but describes many methods of work that have been put to
    the test of actual experiment and have succeeded. As far as known there is no
    other book that covers the same field. For years it has been upon my heart to
    write this book, and I have been asked again and again to do so. But I have
    never found time until now. May it be used of God to the conversion of
    thousands to Christ.
