Starfish Pier, Hope Harbor Series by Irene Hannon and published by Revell Books.
A year ago, ex-Delta Force operator Steven Roark left the rigors of combat behind to run fishing charters in Hope Harbor, decompress, and talk some sense into his kid brother. Business is good-but making peace with his past is more challenging than he expected.
First-grade teacher Holly Miller leads a quiet, low-profile existence-until she's recruited to advocate for a cause that's dear to her heart. When she solicits Steven's assistance, sparks fly-especially after they find themselves on opposite sides of an issue that disrupts their placid seaside community.
As these two seemingly incompatible souls search for common ground, might they discover a deeper connection-and find that love can banish darkness and light the way to a future filled with promise? Bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon invites you back to Hope Harbor-where hearts heal . . . and love blooms.
