Semper Fidelis (Always Faithful)
Semper Fidelis is a transatlantic love affair between a US Marine, Colonel Smith Mickelson, who is on the verge of being deployed to Afghanistan, and Joanne Carter, the widowed mother of 6-year old Matthew, who live happily together in rural Oxfordshire.
Col Mickelson lives by the motto: “Semper Fidelis”. His devotion to the Corps has never been in doubt or put to the test – until now.
Both Joanne and Smith have been damaged, hurt and betrayed in a very public way by their ex’s, so will their love bring them luck this time around?
Or do you risk breaking someone’s heart for a second time when you can stop it, or is service to your country and national glory a much higher principle than devotion to your family?
Colonel Mickelson has met the love of his life and is now the father he always dreamt of being, but when he is asked to lead an elite Presidential protection unit that means a swift return to Afghanistan, will the cost be too high?
Finding himself at odds with his best friend and being labelled a `coward’ by his wife, will Colonel Mickelson pay the ultimate price for Semper Fi?
