I love this book. It is the start of the Brown family and I had to read it agan before I could post it. I almost didn't!!
Retired sailor, Salty Brown, future patriarch of the rollicking Brown clan, had his hands full with three adopted sons. The last thing he wanted - but the one thing he needed - was a woman. And then he met the ravishing Felicia.
Salty thought Felicia, at 18, was just a kid, but she'd show him, she was old enough to get what she wanted. And what she wanted was Salty!
Set in the 1960's, Salty struggles with his attraction to a beautiful girl, who is young enough to be his daughter. Felicia has dealt with adult problems since she was a child, and is more mature than Salty realizes. This presents the starting point for the Brown family by Lass Small. Nice read.
