The SEAL's Stolen Child - Laura Marie Altom (HAR #1430 - Dec 2012)

Series: Operation Family (Book 2) 

A Man On A Mission
He's defended his country and upheld the code of the navy SEALs, but Garrett Solomon has never faced a mission quite like this. As teenagers, he and Eve Barnesworth were passionately in love. Eve's unplanned pregnancy only deepened his commitment to her. But Eve's powerful father, fearing a scandal, whisked her away. As far as Garrett and Eve knew, their baby had died-and with it, their love. Years later, the loss and betrayal still pain Garrett deeply.

Then comes shocking news: the child is still alive. Determined to find their stolen son, Garrett and Eve join forces. Working together is strictly business...until it isn't. Because it seems their powerful attraction-like the child they once thought was gone forever-is still very much alive. 

Good book.  Garrett was home for the holiday and stunned when Eve's dying father dropped that bombshell on them.  Garrett had spent the last eight years trying to forget his feelings for Eve and cope with the loss of the son he'd never had a chance to see. Now he and Eve have to work together to find out what happened to him. Being this close to Eve brings back the feelings of powerful attraction, but also the sense of betrayal he felt because she'd never contacted him after she left.  Now he doesn't trust that, if they do get involved, she won't disappear on him again.  He has to decide if he's willing to take the risk.  Eve had grown up idolizing her father who had always been good to her.  She was horrified by his revelation, and more so as she and Garrett found out more about him in their search for their son.  In spite of their still strong physical attraction she feels there is no future in a relationship between them.  She doesn't think he loves her, plus the distance between their homes would make it impossible.  It takes a life changing event for them to realize that they can have the future they both want.


  1. Hi Susan,

    Thanks for visiting Monthly Mix-up Mania. The currant challenge ends in March 2013. It wouldn't take much to set it up if you'd like to give it a go. Officially it would start on April 1 but all books read in 2013 would count ;-)
