Title: Saved By The Seal
When he sees a woman drowning, Grisham Abbot immediately leaps into action. The Navy SEAL forgets his training, his past, and the explosion that forever scarred his body and his mind. He can only remember what he was born to do. But saving Greta Owen is a complication Grisham is definitely not ready for. She’s stunning and gorgeous—like sunlight after months of darkness. Yep, Grisham is so, so screwed.
Greta knows that the smart thing to do would be to run from Grisham. He’s a wounded warrior, and his head is a big-time mess. The problem is that Greta wants to make him her mess. One kiss and she’s completely in over her head. And if this SEAL risked himself to save her, then she must find a way to bring him back to life . . .

Diana Gardin writes military well. She creates believable alpha warriors including Grisham Abbott. Grisham is complex. He’s at a crossroads he’s unprepared for. By the opening of this story, he’s adept with his prosthesis and has dealt with most of the recovery process. Gardin treats Grisham’s disability as just another factor in his life, a substantial factor obviously. The loss of his foot in combat is making him unsure of surfing, causing him to be discharged from the Navy and is no doubt on his mind as he facing dating. His life is deeply affected but he’s not angsty. He’s not broken.
It complete kismet when as he stands on the beach preparing to walk away yet again without getting back on his beloved surfboard and spies a surfer being knocked unconscious falling from her board. He doesn’t for a second think about his leg when he rushes out to her rescue. Both he and Greta are very pleasantly surprised to see the other. They’ve had an unacknowledged mutual attraction. All good romances need a little relationship ebb and flow and initially Grisham doesn’t want to pursue Greta. He’ s got enough going on. He’s never really wanted to have a steady girl. He can’t stay away though, especially when she needs someone to watch her for signs of concussion. Every time he tries to follow his own advice and walk away, he finds himself instead spending more time together.
I won’t give any more of the plot away because you need to read it for yourself! You’ll enjoy Gardin’s fully developed characters including the supporting cast. The dialog is excellent and the romance is sexy.
