On Order



This romantic suspense novel with its theme of God as refuge provides a firsthand look at life in the military where serving God and country creates uncommon heroes. Kelly Jacobs has already paid the ultimate price of loving a warrior. She has the folded flag and the grateful thanks of a nation to prove it. Navy SEAL Joe "Bear" Baker can't ask her to take that risk again, even though he loves her. But the man responsible for her husband's death is back--closer than either of them realizes--and Kelly is in real danger.

Library Journal Review

Henderson burst onto the romance scene with her "O'Malley" series (beginning with The Negotiator, LJ 2/1/00). Not content to work on one series at a time, she here dives into Navy SEAL territory. As lifeguard Kelly Jacobs risks her life to save a drowning teen, her memory slips back to her late husband and her friendship with Lt. Joe "Bear" Baker of the SEALs. She also remembers her husband's death in a "training accident," which leads her to consider her own mortality. Desperately, she calls on God and pledges to tell Joe her feelings if she survives. When he pulls her out of the water and hears "I love you," his heart skips a beat because he feels the same way. Kelly and Joe turn to God to help them muddle through Kelly's fear of loving another man in a dangerous profession. But God has a few tests about forgiveness in store when the man responsible for the death of Kelly's husband shows up and threatens both their lives. Fans of Suzanne Brockman's "SEAL" series will latch onto this. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
