Callon, a Solis Elf, joins the military to escape his father's plans. On Temporary Duty to the Fae military, he meets Gunny, a Fae Marine. Badly burned by a lover, Gunny avoids relationships until the pretty Elf Lieutenant catches his eye. But Callon's father has other plans for his son and a Fae Marine isn't part of it. When you add in a protective platoon of Fae Marines plus exs who don't understand the word no, even their present is uncertain.
