Fiona Lake and ATF special agent Justin Reed spend ten glorious days together six years ago. Those days were filled with passion and promises of forever. Only once Justin left he never returned nor did he ever answer any of the phone calls that Fiona left, not even when she left a message telling him that she was going to have his child. Now six years later Justin is back in town for his aunts funeral. Fiona tries to avoid Justin, but it is impossible when an explosion in her back yard almost kills her daughter. Now Justin is staying until the criminal is behind bars and it is becoming obvious to Fiona that Justin has no idea that he has a child. Now they have to decide to hate each other or work together to mend the past and creat a loving home for their daughter.
This was a very interesting story. The emotional trauma that Justin had to endure as a child has stayed with him and made him the adult that he is today. He is not only unsure of himself, but he is unsure of his capabilities to love. His past is heartbreaking and his emotional struggle now is heartwarming. Fortunately, Justin had the love of a good woman and a daughter that needs him now more than ever.
