Scientist Alexia Lane was a brainiac in school, skipping grades and making few friends. An army brat, she traveled with her family. But her failure to be challenged in her studies led to boredom and at the age of sixteen, she was involved in a scandal. This caused a rift with her father, who has never forgiven her. But at least she has the acceptance of her gay brother, Michael. After studying in New York, under the tutelage of a brilliant scientist named Edward, she has now returned to California to accept a job in which she is studying ways to correct and enhance sexual activity in abuse victims. Edward is now her boss and they are considering a relationship, but she is not sexually attracted to him and that trait is high on her relationship list.
While sunning on the beach with her brother, Alexia meets Blake for the first time and is attracted to him. But it is not until she runs into him at a bar and rescues him from a clinging blonde that they spend the night together. What starts out as a one night stand soon turns into a weekend spent together, and Alexia begins to think in terms of having a relationship with him. During the whole time they are together, it never comes out that Blake is military…the one type of man that she wants nothing to do with.
Blake knows of her aversion to military men, but for once a woman is looking at him as a man, not as a uniform, and he wants to experience it a bit longer. However, by the time the weekend is over, he knows that he wants her in his life. But can he convince her to give him, a Navy SEAL, a chance, or will he lose her forever?
