Second grader teacher, Mia Delaney, isn’t looking for love. In fact, she isn’t looking for anything at all because life hasn’t been fair. Everything—the idea of love, her hopes and dreams—was ripped away in a single night.
When arrogant and sexy Adam Lawson, a gorgeous single father of two, makes the move to a small town, chance encounters with Miss Delaney have him breaking his own rules as he pursues her, using any means necessary until she is in his bed. Until she is his. What he doesn’t expect is her tenacity as she fights him every step of the way unless finally she relents. But as acquaintances become friends and old friends become enemies, Adam’s need to protect those around him becomes even more crucial.
Dark shadows emerge from the past and threaten their relationship, but more importantly their families. Difficult choices are made. After surrendering to a moment of unbridled passion, hearts are shattered and lovers are left alone to face the consequences.
Claiming what is his, Adam vows to fight for the one thing he wants most in this world, Mia’s love. He will stop at nothing to have his family back together as they should be—even if it’s the last thing he ever does.
