SEALED WITH A KISS
With a hero who's not only a tough Navy SEAL but also an insecure, vulnerable father and a pretty but unsure heroine with a big heart and a huge amount of love to give, how can this story miss? It doesn't; it delivers in a huge way. Throw in a lost little boy
and some great dogs and you get a heart-touching story that will keep you smiling and cheering for the characters clear through to the happy ending.
When widowed Navy SEAL Jax Graham is ordered by his superiors to help his 4-year-old son get over the death of his mother, Jax doesn't know where to turn. He really doesn't know his son, Tyler, and when an impending hurricane forces them to flee the beach house where they've been staying, they throw themselves on family therapist Pickett Sessoms' mercy.
Pickett lets Jax and Tyler take refuge in her home and brings Tyler out of his shell. She also agrees to help Jax learn to be a better father. Soon they can't hide their attraction for each other, even though Jax is against marriage and Pickett is against loving a military man. When Tyler's grandmother sues for custody and an outing turns deadly, Jax and Pickett must decide if their their love can overcome anything. (SOURCEBOOKS, Apr., 368 pp., $6.99)
