An unexpected kiss at sunset can change your life.
Luke overcame his background, thanks to the military. Now, a medic at the county jail on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, he had a job, small apartment, and friends. Not bad for a loner like him.
Allie was sunshine, laughter, and fun. A teacher with a glow about her that made him wish to be worthy of a woman like her.
A phone call changed his life. Now guardian to his niece and nephew, he needed stability to prove he was the best person for them. He needed Allie… but was she willing to step in or run from his chaotic new life.
And when danger and temptation threatened his new life, what would he do to protect them? And would he be able to live with the choices he had to make?
Baytown Boys… Military duty called them away to war zones, but after tours overseas, the group of friends found their way back home as men, seeking the peaceful little seaside town. Now, the band of brothers, together once more, work to provide a place for less fortunate veterans to call home.
Sunset Kiss continues the Baytown Boys series and I just think it is a GREAT series. If you like protector/ex-military types, this is a great series.
Luke is a former military man who has returned to Baytown to live a quiet, simple life. Then, he gets all call-he is now the guardian to two children (his niece and nephew). Enter Allie, a teacher in a situation. Luke helps her out, and they start their “sunset kisses”. Luke and Allie had very different upbringings, but it makes them perfect for each other. I adored both these characters!
There is some outside danger threatening Luke and his new, budding “family” with Allie and his niece and nephew that provides some suspense to keep you turning pages. I appreciate that the suspense doesn’t come from angst between Luke and Allie. I think one reason I have enjoyed all of Jordan’s books is because they don’t rely on the inter-relational angst.
