USA TODAY BESTSELLER • "Don't miss this sparkling debut full of heart and emotion!" raves Lori Wilde. The Hero's Welcome military romance series introduces a small coastal town where America's best and brightest risk everything for love. In Seaside, North Carolina, there are two kinds of people: Marines, and kids of Marines. Then there's Kat Chandler. Recently hired as the principal of Seaside Elementary, Kat makes it her mission to turn the school into a place of peace and calm. That's not going to be easy with hard-liner parents like Micah Peterson storming in, telling her how to do her job-and then kissing her with those gorgeous lips of his and turning her brain into mush. As a Marine Sergeant and a single dad, Micah Peterson has just two priorities: doing his job better than anyone else, and getting the absolute best for his son, Ben. But when he meets Ben's beautiful new principal, a different yearning shifts into focus. He wants her, sure, but he's also moved by the connection Kat forges with her students. So after learning that she refuses to date Marines, Micah sets two more objectives: convincing Kat to give him a chance . . . and then holding on to her forever.
