From Publishers Weekly
In a departure from her customary historical and inspirational romance fiction, Melton, who also writes as Marliss Moon (By Starlight, etc.), offers a refreshing contemporary tale of love and memory. Helen Renault, a Navy SEAL wife, has come to terms with the loss of her husband, Gabe, who disappeared a year earlier while on a mission in North Korea. When Helen learns that he's alive but has no recollection of their two-year marriage or his dangerous mission, Helen should be happy; instead, she's stunned and disappointed. She'd been wildly attracted to Gabe when they first wed, before he'd grown into a moody, career-driven, emotionally distant man. Now all she wants is her freedom. Sharing a home once again, Helen slowly comes to realize the "new" Gabe is nothing like the man she remembers, and she begins to fall in love with him all over again. So what happens when he regains his memory and becomes the man he used to be? While the story focuses largely on Helen and Gabe's relationship, Melton adds a dash of suspense in the form of a traitorous member of his SEAL squad, who will go to any lengths to make sure Gabe remains silent. Fine writing, likable characters (one being their teenage daughter Mallory) and realistic emotions make this a satisfying read.

*Starred Review* Navy SEAL lieutenant Gabe Renault was a man driven to succeed in his chosen career. He was so driven that he shut out his family in the mistaken belief that emotions would weaken his effectiveness. But then a covert mission results in his capture by the North Koreans. A year later, just one week after being declared officially dead, he returns home to his wife, Helen, but his memory of the past three years--including crucial details about the high-level corruption that caused his ordeal--is gone. And even though he now wants to do better by his family, Helen has resolved on divorce. Exemplifying a new trend in romantic suspense, Melton's riveting second-chance military romance, the first in her SEAL Team Twelve trilogy (In The Dark will be released in 2005 and Speak No Evil in 2006), focuses on the sacrifices demanded of the family as well as the warrior. Melton's experiences as a military dependent stand her in good stead, enabling her to invest her compellingly eventful romance with realistic emotions and relationships. Lynne Welch

Gabe is a big, bad, alpha SEAL. He's one of the best. He is taken captive on his last mission. His wife Helen and daughter Mallory are told his missing, then declared dead. A year after he went missing and shortly after declared dead, Helen is finally coming to terms that her husband of only a few years is never coming back. It's time to suck it up and come tot he realization.
Until late one evening, Helen receives the phone call that will change her future. Gabe is alive. Her and Mallory go to the hospital with very conflicting emotions. Mallory now a teenager (Gabe's step-daughter) is excited and glad to have her dad back. Helen not so much. Before Gabe disappeared their marriage was...strained. As, Helen prepares to see her husband again she's told he doesn't remember the last few years...with her.
After coming home, things are different. Gabe is caring, compassionate, loving. He was never like that before. This confuses Helen because she was prepared to leave Gabe once his memory came back. After a few short weeks, Gabe's memory is back, and boy does it cause a storm.
Read the book to find out all the details of the last mission and Helen and Gabe's love story.
The suspense is written really well in this book and although I thought some of the "bad guys" were fairly obvious it still had me on the edge of my seat to see how it would all play out. Gabe is suffering from PTSD from his torture so it isn't always clear what is real and what isn't. I also liked watching Gabe try to repair his relationship with Helen and I really loved his relationship with his step daughter. The military aspects were realistic and well done as well.
The reason this book was a 4 star and not a five was Helen's character. She really came across as selfish and hard to like. I understand that she had some reservations about Gabe and their relationship but there were times when it seemed she wasn't even happy that he was alive and yet she was supposedly still in love with him.
Overall I enjoyed this romantic suspense. I liked Gabe's character and his growth from the man he was before his imprisonment to the man he became after. His relationship with his step daughter was an added element that I thoroughly enjoyed. The suspense and action kept me engaged and interested. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series.
Gabriel Renault is a SEAL. He and his team were in NK to get some missiles out. They got three of the four missiles before all hell broke lose in the warehouse where they were stored.
Gabes XO, Miller, ordered everyone out. Gabe was pissed as they had a good chance of getting the last missile but orders were orders.
Two of the four man team went one way and Gabe was to meet Miller on the other end. When he gets there Miller clocks him with a rifle and ties his hands and feet. Gabe is flabbergasted and helpless. The warehouse blows up and everyone assumes Gabe is dead. He's a prisoner of the North Koreans for a year and then escapes and is found.
So begins one great read.
Gabe is a SEAL through and through. He now has no memory of the last year to include the mission he was lost on. He has no idea what happened and his superiors need him to remember. He needs to remember.
Helen, his wife, thought he was dead. She realized Gabe was driven by his duty to his team. She felt that he would always put the team ahead of she and Mallory, his stepdaughter.
In the year he's been thought dead Helen learned to take control of her life and she doesn't know if she wants Gabe in that life again.
This story has murder, traitors, a conspiracy, Gabes team, new priorities for Gabe and he and Helen trying to get it right.
Just one super read. Five stars.
What I liked. I love books with alpha males.
This is one of the few books I've read aside from S. Brockmans where the author sucessfully intertwined the comraderie between a group of guys who work together and who are loyal friends as well as co-workers.
I like the 'lone wolf' hero's, but its kind of refreshing to read a book where a group of guys have friends and a 'regular life' outside work.
Others have already summarized the story well. I just wanted to add a note about a book thats not only a romantic suspense but a good friendship book as well.
I recommend this a all of Meltons Navy SEAL series.
