The majority of the drama in Day's story is generated by secondary characters, not the hero or heroine. Ransom and Gwen are so level-headed and likable, you'll be rooting for their happily ever after, but it takes a while and you'll tire of the interruptions.

Newly separated schoolteacher Gwen Andrews is only interested in relocating her mother into an assisted-living facility and finding a new job in her hometown, while waiting for her divorce to be finalized. Adam Johnson is the principal and an old high school football star heartthrob. He is under the delusion that Gwen will fall into his waiting arms -- even though those arms are attached to an inflated body and ego.

Once Adam's half-brother Ransom Blake enters the scene, Adam doesn't stand a chance. His schemes to get Gwen into his bed become more ridiculous as time goes on. Ransom's age, he's younger than Gwen, is a minor obstacle for them as they continue to dodge the random females who all seem to want Ransom. (DAFINA, Mar., 352 pp., $6.99)
