LOVE UNLIMITED 

Book II in the SETH series

FOR YOUR READING ENJOYMENT

Seth and Pamela met on a plane. Many people meet strangers on planes. Their introduction was different. She sensed his pain of a broken life. He was unlike any other man she’d met, and later said, “He turned something on inside me that won’t stop.” LOVE REVISITED is Seth and Pamela’s love story.

The Thursday morning sun introduced a day unlike any other. Seth saw fear in the mirror shaving and tasted fear in the eggs at breakfast.

It wasn’t fear of an attack by an assassin. A veteran of six tours with the Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan, Seth Collins discarded any apprehension death would steal his witness of the sunset. Fear in combat equaled hesitancy. Hesitancy equaled death. A Marine was alive, then dead.

In command of a team of Recon Marines, he possessed a singular focus. Defeat was unacceptable. The philosophy awarded him a Navy Cross in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

The unease that gnawed at his self-confidence in these morning hours had a name.

Pamela Brighton.

She frightened and bewildered him. The woman’s elegance, grace, and poise together with her Jasmine perfume were foreign to him.
