There’s safety in solitude…isn’t there?

Single dad and best-selling thriller writer Ethan James has no problem being Templeton Cove’s most famous recluse…until a surprise visit from the past plunges him into a real-life crime drama just as feisty nurse Leah Dixon barges her way into his world.

Ethan’s first priority is to protect his daughter. His second priority is to keep Leah out of this dark web—and that means out of his bed. Except Leah isn’t going anywhere; she’s afraid little Daisy is in danger. Ethan couldn’t live with himself if anything happened to Leah…but pushing her away may be even harder!

Drama, mystery, and romance wrapped in an entertaining tale located in the small-town United Kingdom. Ethan James is a dedicated father and best selling thriller author who has done his best to raise his daughter alone after his ex-wife left them behind in search of more exciting life. Now Anna is back, unstable, abused, and asking for money. She also brought real and present danger with her, threats that could be deadly, or harm everyone Ethan cares about. Including Leah Dixon. Leah, the nurse who has no boundaries, is willing to go to extreme lengths to protect people she is fond of. She is stubborn, pushy, determined, caring, and capable. Yet she does cross some lines as she is trying to make Ethan take action against the mother of his child, his ex-wife in trouble. The danger Anna brings with her plays a major part in the story, everything else wraps around it and the threats delivered. There is a lot back and forth with Leah and Ethan, they obviously care and desire each other, yet the circumstances they are in could not be worse, thus the constant in and out with their status as a couple. I liked Ethan and Leah together, they seemed to balance each other out, they were the perfect match for each other, a fitting pair. I do wish the relationship would have had a little more depth to it, little fewer doubts about their future and more building of their feelings and knowledge of each other. What I wish from the romance I read is that the couple, after their meet and the feelings of attraction are ignited, is that they do not date others. This is not the case in the story of Ethan and Leah, and while the situation is a little more complicated than that, it was still there. I don't usually mention this - and it definitely didn't affect my scoring of the book, even though it did affect my enjoyment when it came to reading it - is the format I received the eARC in. When I had to search for the story in a mix of dates, numbers, names, and titles on each page, sometimes parts of the words completely embedded into 'code' I missed the natural flow of the tale that most likely was there. I think that was just an unfortunate incident. A close and caring community at the Templeton Cove, little miss Daisy who completely won my heart, Ethan doing his best to fight to keep his loved ones safe while helplessly falling in love with Leah, makes an intriguing and charming story that kept my interest and entertained my mind. ~ Three Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

This is the seventh book in the Templeton Cove series. It is also a first Brimble book for me. The book has got a mixture of several genre's you have suspense, romance, and a little of a thrill. I am still a little uncertain of my opinion of the book. I adored parts and have mixed feelings on other's. Overall it was a good read. Ethan is a wonderful father and evidently a great writer. Leah loves with her whole heart and carries her feelings for those she cares for on her sleeves. I adored little miss Daisy she was absolutely precious. Yet I absolutely detest Anna. This woman is what gives my mixed feelings about the book. I will definitely be reading more of Templeton Cove though, other characters throughout the book seemed like such fun people to get to know.

I always enjoy a visit back to Templeton Cove! I enjoyed the characters a lot, and the plot was interesting. I somehow wanted a little more from Ethan & Leah, but overall a good read! Best selling author Ethan James is enjoying his life as a bit of a recluse as he pumps out his next thriller in Templeton Cove, but his daughter has other ideas when she brings home a visitor! ER nurse Leah Dixon is ready to give this child’s father a piece of her mind .. then she realizes who he is and winds up smack dab in the middle of chaos! When danger surrounds this father and daughter, Leah can’t walk away without doing all that she can to make sure they stay safe … especially that little girl! Will Ethan be able to push Leah away so she won’t be caught up in this mess … or will the attraction they feel draw her in even closer?

Daisy is Ethan's main priority. Ethan is a single dad and being there for his daughter is incredibly important to him. He doesn't leave much room in his life for anything else. He's a successful writer and a good dad, but he hasn't got any friends and dating is something he won't even consider. That changes when he meets Leah. She's a committed nurse and immediately helps when Ethan needs someone to take care of him. Ethan likes this new development in his life, but should he let her come close when he's dealing with many insecurities and can't offer her a safe future? After many years of silence Daisy's mother is back in Ethan's life and because of the people she surrounds herself with, this brings a lot of unrest. Ethan does everything in his power to keep Daisy out of harm's way, but trouble keeps finding him. By spending time with Leah he puts her at risk too. Leah can take care of herself, but Ethan can't bear the thought of anything happening to her, so he tries to push her away. However, this proves to be a difficult task. Will their circumstances eventually improve, so they could have a proper chance together? Ethan's Daughter is a gripping romantic story. Leah is a wonderful woman. She's smart, kindhearted, fierce and brave. I liked that she stands up for what she believes in and is always honest about her feelings. She's great with Daisy and their connection constantly made me smile. Leah is perfect for Ethan, she understands him on a deep emotional level and there are plenty of sparks. They aren't looking for love, but when it finds them it comes with a lot of problems, which makes it hard for them to focus on what's developing between them. I loved how their main objective is to protect Daisy as well as they possibly can, they constantly put others before themselves and are both sweet and heartwarming people. They are amazing main characters and I found their story a true joy to read. Rachel Brimble mixes finding precious love with suspense in a great captivating way. She describes the awful dangerous situation Ethan's ex manages to land him in a fantastic open manner. I loved the combination of skillfully divided tension, unexpected twists and turns and empathy. Ethan's Daughter is a terrific story filled with beautiful unconditional love, small town charm and interesting dilemmas. I really enjoyed reading this amazing enthralling book.

Wow, what an awesome read! Ethan's Daughter by Rachel Brimble is fantastic. Ms Brimble has delivered a well-written book and loaded it with amazing characters. Leah and Ethan's story is filled with drama, suspense, humor and spice. I confess I stayed up till 4:30 am reading this book, I get away with that being single and disabled. I enjoyed reading Ethan's Daughter (and she's a little sweetheart) and look forward to reading more from Rachel Brimble in the future. Ethan's Daughter is book 7 in the Templeton Cove Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I was lucky enough to win a print copy of this book.
