Henderson burst onto the romance scene with her "O'Malley" series (beginning with The Negotiator, LJ 2/1/00). Not content to work on one series at a time, she here dives into Navy SEAL territory. As lifeguard Kelly Jacobs risks her life to save a drowning teen, her memory slips back to her late husband and her friendship with Lt. Joe "Bear" Baker of the SEALs. She also remembers her husband's death in a "training accident," which leads her to consider her own mortality. Desperately, she calls on God and pledges to tell Joe her feelings if she survives. When he pulls her out of the water and hears "I love you," his heart skips a beat because he feels the same way. Kelly and Joe turn to God to help them muddle through Kelly's fear of loving another man in a dangerous profession. But God has a few tests about forgiveness in store when the man responsible for the death of Kelly's husband shows up and threatens both their lives. Fans of Suzanne Brockman's "SEAL" series will latch onto this. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
