When zoologist Mitch Huntington agreed to be named in his best friends' will as guardian to their daughter, Emily Jane, he was sure it meant nothing more than pony rides, presents on birthdays, and an occasional day at the circus. Instead he finds himself up to his elbows in diapers and soggy oatmeal. While Mitch soon discovers that animal care and baby care are not the same thing, he quickly becomes totally devoted to the adorable little girl.
But Cory Steele, Emily Jane's estranged aunt, will stop at nothing to rescue her niece from the clutches of this single Mormon man--even if it means pretending to join his strange church in order to gain his trust . . . and seize custody of the baby.
Is Cory deceiving herself as much as she's trying to deceive Mitch? What's really in her heart? And what's best for Emily Jane?
You've met Mitch's sister Amanda and read her gripping tale in the best-selling novel Winterfire. Now Mitch's story will tug at your heartstrings as it explores the nature of commitment and selfless love.
