It’s not the first time he’s bailed on being with her, but she’s determined it will be the last.
A Navy soldier catches her eye on the Greyhound bus. He’s tall, handsome as sin, oozing a sexuality so potent, it should be bottled and sold on the black market. And, it looks like he’s available. So, with twenty four hours to experience to the fullest, Tara embarks on a journey that will brand her for the rest of her life.
