Jonathan Bracelyn pours his soul into saving the world, and he's still nowhere near cancelling out the sins of dear ol' dad. But when a medical crisis prompts Jon to toss his sister the ultimate lifeline, he's forced to hang up his captain's hat and hit pause on the one thing that makes him…well, him.
At least he has Blanka Pavlo's heart-flooding smile to buoy his spirits. A brilliant scientist, she knows things can't last with the do-gooder Bracelyn brother. Not even if he kisses like a dream and boasts biceps as hefty as his heart. Blanka's learned the hard way how lonely life is in the shadow of a saint, so she's giving the hottie hero a wide berth.
Except Jonathan sucks at self-care, so maybe she'll lend a hand (and other tingly parts) to help him out. Soon, they're bonding over awkward bubble baths and a disturbingly homely cat, while struggling to remember it's all temporary. But the harder they brace for goodbye, the louder their hearts declare they're already in too deep.

Another Wonderful Visit To The Ponderosa Ranch
I find myself writing similar reviews for all of Tawna Fenske’s books. Every one of her books is a pleasure to read, and it seems I’m always using the same superlatives to describe them and always loving every single word. “Captain Dreamboat” is no exception. The book is at turns sweet, silly and sexy. The characters, after several books in the series, now feel like family. It was a joy to finally get to know Jonathan better, too. He’s been often mentioned, and he got the happy ending he deserved with Blanka. I always love to visit Ponderosa Resort and find out what the Bracelyn family and their friends are up to. I’d recommend the entire series, but this can be read as a stand-alone as well. Tawna Fenske’s trademark wit and wackiness are a joy. Don’t miss out!
Sins of the father
A delightful addition to the Ponderosa Resort series by Tawna Fenske. Jonathan Bracelyn is the spitting image of his philandering father. He has dedicated his life to helping others,like his stepfather, to atone for his biological father’s sins. Blanka Pablo is a Ukrainian research scientist whose father is the ultimate philanthropist who ignores his own family in order to help others. Both of these characters have serious daddy issues that loom large over their budding relationship. This is a cute, funny romance that has a minimal amount of angst before you get to your happily ever after.
A dream book
Another fabulous addition to the Ponderosa Ranch series. I loved the relationship between Jonathan and Blanka. They never tried to fight or deny their attraction to each other yet they held off because of what they both thought they wanted out of their lives. Blanka helping Jonathan recover from surgery was great, the self-care bath was down right hilarious and yet so perfect for these two. I really liked Blanka and how she always knew what she wanted even if she didn’t know how to put it into words.
I really enjoyed seeing more of Isabelle (Izzy) and watch her open up and become her own person. When she spoke with Jonathan and made him realize what he was missing, that was great to see her becoming herself and not the person who apologized for everything. I can’t wait for Izzy’s story.
If you have enjoyed the other Bracelyn sibling’s stories then Jonathan’s will not disappoint.
