She’s the light from his past.

He’s the one her heart has always longed for. 

Trained by the best, Christopher Walker has fought hard for his country and even harder to forget the only girl he’s ever loved. He spent countless nights submerged in death and destruction only to find himself clinging to the memories of her when the darkness crept in. 

When her life is threatened, Christopher will stop at nothing to protect her. Even if it means having to confront his past.

Alissa Malone never thought she would find herself face-to-face again with the only boy she’s ever loved. But she soon realizes Christopher is not the same man he once was. 

His touch is still electrifying—his voice still earth shattering. But there’s a darkness about him that wasn’t there before. A pain he harbors so deep that she can feel it all the way to her soul. 

One fateful moment destroyed his very existence, and only one person will be able to make him realize that what he considers an act of dishonor was truly an act of courage.


This is Book Four in the Acts Of Honor series, the spin-off series to Men Of Honor. It is not necessary to read all of the other books in the series. However, I do highly recommend that you at least read Resisting Temptation, the third book in the Men of Honor series, since this is where these Characters story began.

4.5 stars
Review by Lisa Kane

Christopher Walker loved Alissa Malone with his whole heart. From the time they were 15 they were inseparable. In spite of Alissa’s snobby mother and the scars from Christopher’s past, they had every intention of being together. But people don’t always make the wisest decisions for themselves. Christopher decided they needed to follow different paths. Alissa would follow her medical dreams and he would enlist in the service.

"I wish things were different, but they aren't and they never will be."

Fast forward five years later. Christopher is back home living on Faith and Cade’s property. He is broken and jaded and full of self- hatred. But his life is about to cross paths with Alissa again. She needs him and he doesn’t hesitate to do what he has to in order to protect her.

"Allisa, baby, it's me-Christopher." 

Alissa’s life has changed too. But she has never fallen out of love with Christopher. Only the man in front of her is not the one who left her all those years ago.

"You forget, Christopher, that you walked away from me. You threw me away."

What happened to destroy the sensitive, caring man who loved life? These days he seems to need his music, it’s the only thing that calms the demons in him.

When music is at its loudest that's when silence descends upon me.

My demons are finally quiet. 

There hasn’t been a day in the last five years where Christopher didn’t regret his actions. Leaving Alissa was a mistake but regrets are useless.

There's no way she hasn't dated. But the thought of her with anyone else makes me violent, and I have no one to blame but myself.

He is not the man she thinks he is; in his eyes he is a monster. I had a few theories about what happened to Christopher and when the truth is revealed, I have to admit I had to turn my head away from my Kindle. As bad as I thought the reveal would be, it’s a million times worse.

"What you did was not a dishonor."

Throw in some intrigue, self-loathing and enough steamy sexy to turn legs into rubber bands-and that sums up An Act of Courage. K Lynn has never disappointed me with her writing. Both her Men of Honor and Acts of Honor series continue to be two of my favorites. They're not roses and sunshine, these stories are raw and exposed. Yet those are the reasons that I love them, the light moments balance out the darker ones. These are the stories that stay with the reader long after the last page is turned.

I love you. Please, wait for me.


One minute I’m drumming to a beat I could never play on my own then the next I’m flipped around to face him, his fingers digging into my hips possessively. I gasp, my breath racing as I stare back at him.

Something passes between us.

A decision.

A choice.

No more fighting this.

“Fuck complicated.” His earlier words fall past his lips then our mouths become one.

The connection slams into me, sending my heart reeling. Our tongues duel in a beautiful battle, the sound of our passion filling the air as our past ignites.

A growl erupts from him, vibrating against my lips. “You taste as good as I remember.”

I want to tell him the same thing but can’t. All I can think about is his mouth never leaving mine, not even for a second, or it might kill me.

At this moment, I’m not even sure how I survived so long without it—without him.

He slides the stool closer to the drum set before his hand moves between us and presses on my chest. I seize the opportunity to suck in air and let him guide me to my back, my shoulders resting against the musical cylinders.

His hands move to mine and it’s then I realize I still have the drumsticks gripped tightly in my fists. With a sexy smirk, he pries them both from me, throwing one on the floor but keeps hold of the other.

His dark eyes never sever from mine as he unbuttons the shirt I’m wearing, exposing me to his stare. The cool air whispers over my heated flesh, my nipples straining for his touch.

                “So fucking pretty.” The wild lust in his eyes triggers an intense desire in me.

                 I bite my lip to keep from moaning but all silent caution is thrown out the window the moment he takes the stick and brushes the tip of it over one aching bud.

                Another gasp parts my lips, a fiery whimper purging from me at the cool, hard feel. My back arches, the small touch igniting an inferno in my body.

                “Remember the things I used to do to your body, Alissa? How wet you would get when you’d hear me sing?” he murmurs, dragging the smooth wood down my tummy. “You’d beg me to take your ache away. Remember?”

                “Yes. Do you?” I ask. I’m dying to know. Has he thought of me as much as I have him?

                “Yeah, baby. There isn’t a moment of our time together that I’ve ever forgotten.”

                His admission has my throat burning and heart aching. Aching at the loss of him, of what we could have had.

                What we did have.

                “The good,” he whispers. “The bad.” He slips the stick in my panties. “And the fucking beautiful.”

                “Oh, god, Christopher.” His name spills past my lips on a cry of pleasure as he glides the stick through my wet flesh, slowly working it against my swollen clit.

                He plays my body like he plays every instrument. With skilled perfection and grace. Keeping his momentum, he leans down just enough to suck a hard nipple into his mouth. His teeth graze it with a pressure that borders on a beautiful pain and it’s enough to send me over the edge.

                Blissful cries rip from my throat as I’m swept up into an intense storm of pleasure.

                “Good girl, scream for me, Alissa. Let me have your pleasure because next it’s going to be my cock working this hot little pussy.”
