CAROLINA MAN by Virginia Kantra


Email this review


A Marine's world is completely upended when he receives a letter saying he's the guardian of a 10-year-old daughter he never knew about, and the attorney handling the matter feels like the woman he’s been waiting for all his life.

Staff Sgt. Luke Fletcher is in Afghanistan when he gets word that his high school girlfriend Dawn has died and left him custody of a daughter he didn't know he had. Flying halfway around the world to get Taylor safely ensconced with his family at their North Carolina inn, he meets Kate Dolan, the attorney handling the legal issues. Luke has to finish his current tour and decide whether or not to re-enlist, a question complicated by a blazing attraction to Kate, a heart-melting loyalty to his new-to-him daughter and some emotional threats to their well-being from Dawn’s family. Best-selling romance author Kantra continues her popular Dare Island series with this heart-warming story about a smart-but-damaged heroine who learns a few lessons about love and family from her Marine hero. With a swirl of successful and engaging features—small-town charm, family loyalty, a strong-but-gentle warrior hero—combined with strong writing and powerful storytelling, Kantra delivers a sexy, satisfying love story.

Contemporary romance as warm and gratifying as a perfect day at the beach.
