The Story:
Boarding a cruise ship bound for Mexico, vacationing Navy SEAL Jeremiah "Bullfrog" Winters runs into Emma Albright, the only woman he ever loved... and lost.

Emma might still teach Romantic Lit at George Mason University, but life taught her there's no such thing as everlasting love. Good thing she can still enjoy her vacation without falling for the man who captivated her years earlier.

But re-awakening Emma's passions becomes Jeremiah's current mission until violence breaks out on their port excursion to the Mayan ruins of Tulum. Now, love may be the only weapon powerful enough to save them both, if Emma can bring herself to believe in its permanence and power.

From Marliss Melton:
"Authors aren't normal people; we see and experience the world differently. For instance, traveling heals the body and soul as it did for me two springs ago while recovering from a double mastectomy and dealing with marriage struggles. But that's not all...

My cruise through the Western Caribbean was intended to be relaxing; I was determined to enjoy myself. However, where other cruise ship passengers anticipate carefree adventures, my suspense-oriented mind imagines trouble. Are there terrorists lurking aboard ship? What happens if our shore expedition’s tour bus is boarded by gun-toting bandits? These imaginings gave rise to Jeremiah and Emma’s gripping love story in FRIENDLY FIRE, the theme of which is: How bad do things have to get before my hero and heroine accept the purity and power of their bond?

I am happy to report two years later, I am cancer-free and still married to my own hero. As we head to San Francisco this summer, I wonder what story might come out of my next travel adventure."
