When ad executive Lucy Donovan arrives at the marine park in the Bahamas that she inherited from her long lost father, she finds dolphin rescuer Chris Maddox in the process of liberating the park's main attraction. While she intended to sell off the land and get back to work, instead Lucy becomes involved with the dolphin thief, discovers unresolved issues with her father's death and finds going home less and less attractive…but giving up everything she's worked so hard for is easier said than done. Tina Wainscott's newest, THE BEST OF ME (4) is an unusual Temptation. It doesn't focus solely on the sensuality in the romance, although that element is certainly present. Ms. Wainscott handles the issues—and the characters—sensitively and intelligently, and the result is wonderful.
