Sealed Forever

Sealed Forever
Mary Margaret Daughtridge

ISBN 9781402246197

   Navy Seal, Garth Vale, is undercover and finds an abandoned baby on an airplane at his hanger. He is well aware that his superiors do not want to know about this and so he decides to pose as the baby's father. He seeks out the help of a local doctor who he discovers was at his friend's wedding.
   Dr. Browyn Whitescarver left the frantic pass of the big city ER to start a small town medical practice. She has not even settled in and unpacked when the sexy seal knocks on her door with the sick baby he has taken under his wing. She eventually agrees to help him; but only under her conditions. Is she saving the baby or the gorgeous, sexy Navy Seal.
   Garth instantly decides he has found his soul mate in the doctor and is determined to win her heart. She, on the other hand, has no desire to get involved. She is still in the throes of grief from losing her former lover, an undercover cop who always had much of his life closed off to her.
   This story begins with Garth having an out of body experience so to speak where he is is on a battlefield in Afghanistan and brings his buddy back from the dead. The mission was  one of those the government doesn't like to publicize. It leads into his friends wedding to Browyn's best friend. The story takes off from there.
   I thought this was a nicely written story about love, betrayal, and cover up in the armed forces. As the story develops, the story behind the baby and the cover up becomes apparent. In addition, the issues that Browyn has faced as a doctor and as the daughter of well known prominent physicians comes to light. Of course, no love story would be complete without the sexual tension and sparks that fly between our two main characters. Will Browyn be able to lay to rest once and for all the death of her former lover and be able to give herself over to find true love? The answer lies in the reading.
