A World Apart

Summary:  A World Apart

Lieutenant Cassandra Toma, trauma surgeon in the Romanian National Army starts her deployment at a joint-unit air base on a wrong foot, clashing on her first day with her new commander, Major David Hunt. Her rebellious nature and sassiness rival her excellent performance in the operating room—the only reason why she's not reprimanded, or maybe not the only reason.

They meet. They clash. A forbidden passion consumes them with the intensity of an erupting volcano, leaving her heartbroken and him with tarnished honor and pride as an officer. The only way out for David is disappearing into the dangerous warzone in Iraq. Their flame was supposed to be over when destiny brings them back under the same roof, this time with a common goal—to find Cassandra's brother, Maj. Robert Toma, kidnapped by insurgents while on patrol.

To rescue Robert, Cassandra and David put aside their resentments, uniting forces against a common enemy. Trying to forget the painful past, Cassandra opens up to give David—and their love—another chance. What she doesn’t realize is that her anguish is the result of David’s impetuous action—one reckless choice he made for which she may never forgive him.

His mistake, his secret, could cost them both the love they've finally found.


This book is a DNF. I’ll explain. Why.  As a Veteran whom holds respect to all persons whom serve in the Military in all Nations, I couldn’t finish this book because so many of the things are so not how the Military does things. I will admit the writing and editing of the half of the book I read was well done.  Most Nations when someone enters into the Military service as a doctor, they enter as a Caption. I also would have liked to have seen the ranks of the Romanian Military done in the correct format and a glossary of terms done at the end of the book, it would have made it more real.
