The author of Below the Belt continues her First to Fight series with a novel of one Marine's battle to come out on top-in life and love . . .

As a troubled teen, Gregory Higgs channeled his energy into boxing instead of breaking the law. The ring gave him purpose and something to strive for. So did the Marines. Combining the two seemed like a natural fit.

Another natural fit? Reagan Robilard, the sweet athlete liaison who keeps all the fighters out of trouble and manages their PR-a job that gets more challenging when someone digs up the truth about Greg's not-so-shiny past after equipment is vandalized at the gym.

Even if it wasn't her job, Reagan can't let Greg take the fall. Because passion doesn't pull any punches when it comes to matters of the heart . . .
