Synopsis of Hallmark’s All For Love
Jo Parker had been a successful romance writer until her last book tanked. She was literally crucified in the reviews by critics and her once-dedicated readers outed her after she made several factual errors. Since her own love life has been non-existent, Jo Parker’s romance writing has lacked the luster needed to pull her readers in as she did before.
Now, she’s just three months away from her publishing date, and her publisher, Diana, is not satisfied with the final draft of her book SEALed With a Kiss. With the publishing date looming ahead, Diana insists that Jo Parker get her act together since she cannot afford any more bad publicity.
To make sure she has no factual errors for this book, Jo Parker needs to do some in-depth research about Navy SEALs, and Diana has already lined up the perfect person to teach her all about that life. The teacher turns out to be Diana’s brother, Colin Shaw, a handsome and retired Navy SEAL.
Their first meeting doesn’t turn out well. Colin Shaw is easy on the eyes, however, his strict regimen is sure to be difficult for Jo Parker. Colin figures the best way for Jo to learn is to fully immerse her in the life of a Navy SEAL, and there is no better way to do that than to put her through boot camp, alongside several other recruits.
The hours are long and the drills are hard. But Jo Parker’s close contact with Colin and the other SEALs in training begins to teach her that the discipline required to master the exercises is much like the knowledge and control needed to write her books. As Colin becomes more familiar with Jo’s writing, a softer side of him emerges in a way that opens them both up to the possibility of love.
