But the helpless newborn chips away at her defenses, and she willingly puts her life on hold to make sure Max's nephew doesn't suffer the same fate that she did growing up. When she finds herself falling in love with Max, what is she willing to risk to have a family of her own?
Really good book.
Great book. A little danger and a little romance!
