As the clock ticks closer to midnight, danger looms for the McCord family. Robin McCord finds herself in New York City, the home of Jared Donovan -- the father of the child she now carries. Jared's job is to protect her uncle, but when he learns of their baby, he must protect Robin as well. And as the countdown to the New year begins, everything threatens to explode!
Senator James McCord is preparing to announce his candidacy for president on January 1, 2000, and his niece Robin is fully involved in the preparations. But Robin has other things on her mind: she's three months pregnant, and the campaign has brought her back to New York, where the baby's father lives. Differences kept them apart in the past, and he doesn't know about the child. But when a deadly political plot begins to emerge, with Robin right in the crosshairs, Jared forces himself back in her life, and Robin has no choice but to accept his help.
It had been three months, three weeks and four days since they'd made love.
