Bachelor Mark Nolan is shocked when his sister is killed and he is given guardianship of his six-year-old niece. Holly has been traumatized by her mother's death and has not spoken since. When they visit a new toy store in town, they meet the owner, Maggie Conroy. Holly quickly bonds with Maggie and begins speaking. Mark and Maggie are attracted to each other, but he already has a girlfriend and she says she'll never marry again after the death of her husband.

This is the story of three lonely people who need each other. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and the connection between the characters. Both are struggling with baggage from their past and not looking for a relationship. But the sexual chemistry between the two is very noticeable.

My only problem with this story was the short length. At just over 200 pages I wish it could have gone on longer. I'm looking forward to books about the other Nolan brothers. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
