Police Officer Winter Evan and Navy SEAL Tanner Random are wrong for each other. Winter fears the water. Tanner skims through seas for a living. So four years ago, Winter convinced herself she’d be better off not worrying about his months at sea and his increased cajoling for physical intimacy.
But when she walked away, she lost a giant chunk of her heart.
Now Tanner’s back in town to care for his abandoned niece. No longer a SEAL, he’s sticking to the safety of the North Carolina mountains as a paramedic. Should Winter risk losing her heart all over again? Will God help them build what started years ago into something solid and secure?
Tanner’s niece, Chaney, tugged at my heart from the start of this story. Winter is shocked—even appalled—when she discovers the man who’d broken her heart four years earlier is now her next-door neighbor. But the needs of Chaney break through her barriers, in spite of her best efforts.
Tanner’s relationship with his father adds a special dimension to this story, especially when Winter becomes involved. The multi-layered and realistic personalities make When Love Triumphs a sweet and satisfying story of love that overcomes, and it earns four stars.
