Finding Him

Rachel Van Dyken. Skyscape, $9.99 trade paper (252p) ISBN 978-1-5420-2088-6

Van Dyken’s sizzling second Covet romance (after Stealing Her) sees two grieving people find comfort in each other. After Julian Tennyson, the jerky, moneyed heir to Tennyson Financial, awakens from a coma and learns that his mother has died, he retreats to his family’s Vermont cabin. Upon arrival, Julian discovers that the cabin is already occupied by Keaton Westbrook, daughter of a celebrity couple, who has rented the cabin to finish writing a memoir about her tragic love story with her late boyfriend. Though at first they argue about who has a right to be there, Julian saves Keaton’s life after she is hit by falling ice during a snowstorm. Snowed in together, with Julian playing nurse until they can get Keaton to a doctor, the sexual tension between the two mounts. Her fingers injured by frostbite, Keaton agrees to let Julian type the book for her, leading to touching moments of emotional bonding. This fast-paced romance is full of witty, flirtatious dialogue and alluring love scenes. Van Dyken should win some new fans with this one. Agent: Erica Silverman, Trident Media Group. (Feb.)
