Jackson Guard, aka “Ajax,” gave up the woman he was falling for because it had been drilled into his head that being in the Delta Force was the greatest sacrifice he’d ever make. Meeting with “Ghost” and “Truck” from a Texas based Delta Force unit opened his eyes. These men… their entire unit were all happy, in love, some with kids. It gave him hope that he could have it all too. He just has to plead his case to the woman whose heart he broke.
Hi`ilani Ahfong was ready to give everything up for love and follow Jackson where ever he was stationed around the world, but he didn’t just put the brakes on, he left her on the side of the road wondering where she’d gone wrong. Her manager barely managed to hold onto the ‘I told you so’ she so richly deserved and helped her focus her energy on performing and building her career. Now, she’s back on track.
Everything changes when Hi`ilani walks into the middle of a murder. Fleeing for her life, she runs smack dab into the very man who’d broken her heart. Now the murderers are after her, needing to shut her up, and that’s trouble that can hurt the people she loves. Jackson wants to take care of her and keep her safe while the police track down the men. But she’s put her trust in Jackson before. She’d given him her heart and soul and he’d left her bleeding.
How can he make her believe that this time he’s in for the long haul and not just ‘Rescuing Hi`ilani’?
Her dreams kept her in Hawaii when most of her friends moved to the West Coast to follow theirs. He was on the island of Kaua’i training with the other Deltas in his unit until he fell head over heels for the woman of his dreams.
Ku’uipo Ornellas has been working most of her life. Starting as a professional hula dancer when she was a child, she just resigned from her job as hospitality coordinator for a large chain hotel to revive a hotel from Hawaii’s silver screen past. Hoping to give young residents a practical place to learn their hospitality skills. But someone doesn’t want the hotel to reopen and they’re willing to take out their frustration on the young woman so dedicated to its success.
Efrain ‘Train’ Figueroa is a man who loves his movies and tv shows, but within hours of meeting the young woman with a sweetheart of a name, he finds himself drawn into her single-minded goal of getting the hotel up and running. Especially because one of his acting idols filmed on the grounds. When the seamier side of Hawaii tries to take her dreams away, he’s quick to jump in and help. He just can’t seem to walk away from the beautiful young woman who calls to a part of his soul that has nothing to do with the ephemeral quality of movies and everything to do with the heart that beats hard and fast in his chest.
There’s no script that tells the tale of their love, but who can resist a beautiful heroine, a handsome hero, action, adventure, and love. Lots of love when ‘Train’ becomes a Hero for Ku’uipo.
