There’s safety in solitude isn’t there?

Single dad and best-selling thriller writer Ethan James has no problem being Templeton Cove’s most famous recluse until a surprise visit from the past plunges him into a real-life crime drama just as feisty nurse Leah Dixon barges her way into his world.

Ethan’s first priority is to protect his daughter. His second priority is to
keep Leah out of this dark web and that means out of his bed. Except Leah isn’t going anywhere; she’s afraid little Daisy is in danger.

Ethan couldn’t live with himself if anything happened to Leah but pushing her away may be even harder!

Ethan’s Daughter is book 7 in the Templeton Cove series but it is the first book I have read by Rachel Brimble. I feel it can be read as a standalone though there are characters mentioned that must be from the other books.

Leah is a nurse who finds a little girl alone on the beach. She takes her home to find her dad is none other than Ethan James, a famous writer and recluse. Ethan is hurt and she discovers he was attacked by his ex-wife. She immediately tends to his wounds and the more time she spends with him and his daughter, Daisy, the more she wants to be in their lives. Ethan tries to push Leah away from fear of the people his ex is involved with. He doesn’t want Leah caught in the cross-hairs but that proves more difficult than he thought.

I really enjoyed this story. I love a good romantic suspense and this was very suspenseful at times. I couldn’t put this book down and I didn’t want it to end. I was hooked from the very beginning. The fact that Daisy was in danger made me want to know what would happen even more. This is a definite must read!
