Only Mine

Susan Mallery. HQN, $7.99 mass market (384p) ISBN 978-0-373-77588-0
Mallery follows her Perfect contemporary trilogy with another gimmicky tale of Fool's Gold, Calif. The town's severe man shortage attracts a reality dating show, and Dakota Hendrix, a child psychologist, is roped into helping. Alaskan pilot Finn Andersson has twin brothers who are prospective contestants, and he wants them back home. For eight years he raised his siblings—now it's time they finish college, join the family business, and allow him to hang up his hero hat. But once he gets to Fool's Gold, he's drawn into Dakota's life. Finn's caring nature is on view as he helps Dakota navigate adopting a baby, but his hatred of being "the responsible guy" presents readers with an overwhelming disconnect. Attractive, sympathetic leads and smooth writing are no match for the hero's single-minded selfishness, which limits his appeal at a late, critical juncture. (Aug.)
