Roz Denny Fox's A Mom for Matthew focuses on two people who have been burned in previous relationships and are afraid to commit to anyone new. Zeke (Ezekiel) Rossetti' three-year old son is deaf. Zeke loves his son with his whole heart, but over-protects him to a point where he doesn't let anyone into their lives. He makes a good living working for an oil drilling company, and together they reside with his mother, Celia in Galveston.

Grace Stafford is single. A bad experience in a previous relationship has taught her not to trust men. Raised by her grandmother, Grace is currently working on a project. She hopes it will lead her to a missing World War II plane, that will help clear her grandfather's name before her grandmother passes away. When Zeke finds Grace diving in Galveston Bay, putting his latest drilling project on hold, he has a fit. But she has the backing of the federal government, so Zeke's boss suggests they help her find the plane, so that they can get back to work sooner.

Zeke and Grace clash big time and argue about almost everything. Grace is pretty stubborn and is definitely not an easy person to get along with! At the same time, Zeke has difficulty opening up to people. It's as if he has a wall around him. There are sparks between the two, but neither seems to be aware of it. Unfortunately, things don't go easy for them while they search for the missing plane. It seems like Grace will never find it. And when word gets around about a mysterious man watching Grace's diving in the Bay, Zeke begins to worry that her life may be in danger.

I enjoyed A Mom for Matthew, as I have all of Roz Denny Fox's books. It is a good example of how well written Harlequin Superromance books can be with credible characters and an interesting plot that will make fans of any romance reader.
