Jill Smith traveled five thousand miles for a fresh start with the single dad she met on a dating website only to discover he did not write those emails. What now?
Can they find any Solid Ground?
With the loss of his wife, SEAL leader Daniel Monroe finds himself grounded with four girls to command. It is a job that proves too big even for this stalwart Commander. When he calls in the reserves, his mama and the wife of his best friend, they come up with a different kind of solution – find him a new wife and mother for the girls online.
Jill Smith has dedicated her life to caring for others and raising her family. She lived in exile for a quarter of a century, the very American wife of a Royal Marine. Now with her husband dead and her sons grown, she is homesick with a hole the size of Texas in her heart. She is a mother with no one to look after. What’s a girl to do when she sees a handsome officer and four beautiful daughters with no one to care for and love them?
The surprisingly old-fashioned, yet modern, solution to their problems is an arranged marriage. Can they find Solid Ground on which to build a life or will the heat they generate in the bedroom, kitchen countertops, and shower combust their future?
To make matters worse, as Jill delves deeper into the supposed suicide of Daniel’s wife, near-miss accidents begin to plague the family. Is it just coincidence or someone trying to keep the truth hidden?
