Far From Harm (ABOUT)(UNEDITED DRAFT)
...YET SO CLOSE TO DANGER. BLAKE DARKMAN (AFRICAN AMERICAN) IS FAR FROM A HERO NO MATTER HOW MANY RIBBONS, PINS, AND METALS HE’S RECEIVED. DIRTY WORK TOOK ON ANOTHER MEANING FOR THE EX-MARINE OVER THE YEARS HE SPENT OVERSEAS. CLEANING UP POLITICAL BULLSHIT AND WADING IN THE MURKY TRENCHES WAS HIS SPECIALTY. AFTER AN EARLY RETIREMENT, HE’S HIRED TO LOOK AFTER A SOUTH AFRICAN DIPLOMAT’S STUBBORN DAUGHTER, ANIA MOSWEU, WHO’S A SOCIOLOGY PROFESSOR AT A PRESTIGIOUS UNIVERSITY. TENSION STIMULATES A SENSUAL ATTRACTION AND BLAKE STRUGGLES TO MAINTAIN PROFESSIONALISM, BUT AFTER SO LONG WITHOUT MUCH TO FEEL, THE STRONG BEAUTIFUL WOMAN HAS PUT HIM IN DANGEROUS UNKNOWN TERRITORY.
