Overview

He no longer believed in anything.
But she believed in him.


J.T. Douchett has returned home to shut out the world and escape the memories that haunt him from his final mission as a Marine. When he reluctantly agrees to provide security for a town event, the last thing he expects is to experience unbidden feelings for Irish movie star Mary Joyce. Mary has surprised everyone—including herself—by accepting an invitation to a film festival in Shelter Bay. The Oregon coastal town immediately charms her, and an even larger surprise is encountering the stoic man who could be everything she's dreamed of.

As J.T. struggles to keep Mary at arm’s length, she reminds herself that she’s never been attracted to the strong, silent type. And having known so much sorrow, he’s afraid to risk getting close to anyone. But in Shelter Bay, even the most strongly guarded heart is no match for love.  

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
J.T. Douchett, a Marine officer and emotionally wounded warrior haunted by too many months of notifying relatives of fellow Marines’ deaths, enthralls lusty Irish movie star and screenwriter Mary Joyce in Ross’s scorching fourth romance set in Shelter Bay, Ore. (after On Lavender Lane). Ross gradually builds up the sexual tension between her characters with convincing tact in a comfortingly idyllic milieu where nearly everyone else is in love. When Mary agrees to be a guest at Shelter Bay’s first film festival and Douchett becomes her reluctant bodyguard, he finds her “really, really hot,” but despite those predictable erotic sparks, he maintains his self-imposed celibacy until Mary’s Celtic allure and her stories of inhibition-shedding selkies break through his depression and resolve. Ross satisfyingly fleshes out their mating dance with secondary characters familiar from her earlier books and tantalizing glimpses of stories to be told in future installments.

Mary Joyce is pone determined woman, and once she sets her eyes on J.T. there is no stopping her. But J.T. is just as determined. Also Phoebe and Ethan are just as determined that her soon to be ex isn't going to separate them. Determined.

I love reading books from a series, it's great getting to meet new characters and visit with the old. There is just enough of the fantasy to be enjoyable.

JoAnn Ross pens another moving and sensual story in her Shelter Bay Series… Moonshell Beach. J.T. Douchett has return home to Shelter Bay with his life out of sorts. His last mission still haunts his dreams and his demeanor is worrying his friends and family. J.T. reluctantly agrees to provide security for visiting movie star Mary Joyce. Mary Joyce agrees to headline Shelter Bay’s first every film festival, with Mary’s movies leading the line up she is honored to appear. The town and its scenery welcome Mary with open arms. Well almost everyone, her security detail seems far from happy to be at her beck and call. But Mary is drawn to the stoic handsome man and her nature to get to know him better begins to drawn him out of his shell. J.T. fights it tooth and nail not to fall for Mary’s charm and beauty. It’s a losing battle that once J.T gives in will give him more peace and joy then he ever thought possible. Mary and J.T. romance is emotional and delightful. Both bring out the best in each other and are willing to work hard to make this relationship go the distance. Moonshell Beach is a novel that will find a place in your heart and be there for you to revisit and feel the love. In my book you can’t go wrong with a JoAnn Ross story.
