Mollie Devlin had gone a little crazy
Boot camp could do that. Long weeks at the marine base at Quantico, Virginia, had left Mollie as limp as yesterday's lettuce, both physically and mentally. Put plainly, Mollie was in no shape to tell a good idea from sheer suicide.
When her so-called buddy dared Mollie to make a conquest of Dave Talmadge, the base physician's dynamic, handsome brother, her fighting spirit revived but her brain remained in neutral. Mollie could never turn down a challenge, so she set out to win Dave's heart--but she never considered the dangerous consequences of such a foolhardy bet.
