Second chances didn’t come for everyone, but for Sgt. Harold Tyler, code name; Eastwood, the second chance was mandated. Losing a leg in the line of duty didn’t mean retirement for this Green Beret. Instead of being sent home, Eastwood finds himself transported to a top-secret rehabilitation facility deep inside the infamous Area 51. Confined to an unknown camp beneath the Nevada desert, he comes face to face with Joely Winter, a sexy one-night stand he met in London.

Joely Winter was a child prodigy and the inventor of advanced bio-engineered prosthetics. Now grown and the owner of a successful company, she’s contracted by the Department of Defense and put in charge of their new program, PATCH-COM. Here, the military ensures a return on their investment in highly-trained special operations soldiers by patching them up and moving them back out into the field. Unknown even to SEALs, Delta Forces, Green Berets, and more, PATCH-COM soldiers operate far beneath the radar and beyond the knowledge of top brass at Fort Bragg.

During his time at Camp Lazarus, Joely is determined to keep their relationship professional, barely. But when Eastwood receives orders to bug out, he suffers a crisis of confidence. Returning to the field on his new leg with a new team is too much to handle. Seeing her big, brave, handsome ex-lover doubt himself breaks her heart, so Joely breaks her rule to rally her man. It’s her patriotic duty, after all! But intimacy only draws them closer and when he leaves, he takes her heart with him.

With orders in hand and a team of broken soldiers at his side, Eastwood heads out to recover a Ukrainian operative in possession of the very technology now propping him up. It’s a race against time to find the traitor within their midst responsible for betraying PATCH-COM before the operative can sell the stolen tech to their enemies. When the identity of the traitor is revealed, he knows Joely’s life is in danger. Can Eastwood save his woman in time?

From Bestselling Author Michele E. Gwynn, creator of the Green Beret series, comes a thrilling, brand new, action-packed military romance series, The Soldiers of PATCH-COM.
