Inactive Marine Damon Sinclair takes great pride in his first class restaurant Lagniappe. The staff is entirely made up of inactive Marines or people related to a Marine and the discipline they show contributes to the culinary experience. Like his comrades, Damon signed up for a date through 1Night Stand, but rather that join her when she arrives at Lagniappe, he greats her as a waiter which as it turns out allows her a chance to relax her guard, enjoy herself, and even flirt a little, but it also leaves her alone at a table feeling like she’s been stood up.
Helena Blake has never taken time out just to enjoy life. She’s worked hard to achieve success in the legal field but that means she has no personal life. She couldn’t even be on time for her date that she’s been looking forward to all week because she couldn’t get out of court in time. Disillusioned and alone she’s seated at a table and treated to the most attentive service by a waiter she’s ever had – he even tempts her with culinary delights that totally blow her diet. All the fine dining in the world doesn’t make up for the fact that it’s her birthday and she’s been stood up. Fortunately, the waiter is willing to indulge her and join her for the meal.
After Helena confesses to the fact that it’s her birthday and she’s been stood up Damon realizes that he needs to come clean and confess to being her date. However, he agrees to join her and introduces her to not just a culinary experience she’ll never forget but successfully turns the meal into an erotic encounter that triggers a hunger of a completely different nature. One which he satisfies with the same sort of attention he pays to the culinary delicacies coming from the kitchen.
PROUD TO SERVE HER is as much a feast for the senses as it is a scorching hot romance. This is one of those stories that tempts and teases the reader and leaves you hungry for so much more. Helena is a driven woman who’s never taken the time to slow down and just enjoy life and because of that she’s missed out on so much that everyone else takes for granted. Damon has that slow sexy speech thing going and the way he talks about the food is enough to incite an orgasm – no hands required.
Heather Long’s ALWAYS A MARINE series focuses on the men and women of the Marines and their transition back to civilian life. It also demonstrates beautifully not only how the statement ‘Once a Marine, Always a Marine’ is very true – but also that they never leave a man behind.

ONCE HER MAN, ALWAYS HER MAN
RETREAT HELL! SHE JUST GOT HERE
