How had single mother Esther Lucas become the fix-it-lady? Bandaging her sons' scraped knees was one thing; hoping to heal a handsome widower's broken heart was quite another. But Alexander Stone brought out much more than just Esther's maternal instincts. And she knew that loving the tall, dark loner would make her need a fix-it person of her own. Alexander Stone didn't know if he agreed with that old saying about having loved and lost - he just knew he'd never love again. But how could he resist a warm, sexy woman who always had a minute to smile and two little boys who made him remember what it was like to laugh...or to long for a family to call his own?
