Star General, knows how odious Donner is towards women. He
believes the new personal assistant may have the right
stuff to end the predatory career of Donner for it will

of her son. Rachel agrees to trap the General knowing
failure means her career.
As Rachel with Nathan's support does her best to stop
Donner, a stalker begins intimidating her and her family.
Nathan knows that is not part of the MO of his superior
officer so is at a loss as to whom is threatening Rachel.
He also knows that he loves her, but realizes he must do
nothing to hurt the case. Nathan wonders whether either of
them will survive the wrath of General Officer club that
prefers protecting all members even one violating the Army
A CAPTAIN'S HONOR is an exciting military sexual harassment
case that readers will enjoy as Donner acts more like a
sheik running a fiefdom with a harem. The stalking subplot
adds tension, but takes away from the powerful look at a
superior abusing power to take advantage of an employee.
