A year ago, ex-Delta Force operator Steven Roark left the rigors of combat behind to run fishing charters in Hope Harbor, decompress, and talk some sense into his kid brother. Business is good—but making peace with his past is more challenging than he expected.
First-grade teacher Holly Miller leads a quiet, low-profile existence—until she's recruited to advocate for a cause that's dear to her heart. When she solicits Steven's assistance, sparks fly—especially after they find themselves on opposite sides of an issue that disrupts their placid seaside community.
As these two seemingly incompatible souls search for common ground, might they discover a deeper connection—and find that love can banish darkness and light the way to a future filled with promise? Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon invites you back to Hope Harbor—where hearts heal . . . and love blooms.
