Harley Nelson is the last man on earth Lauren Worthington wants to find on her doorstep. Not only did he get her older sister Audra pregnant in high school, he abandoned her and left town, never to be heard from again. Until now.
It’s ten years later and things have changed. Audra was killed in a drunk driving accident six months earlier and, along with the support of her parents, the single Lauren is raising her nephew. Audra was never the same after her affair with Harley anyway. Addicted to drugs and alcohol, she went into a steady decline that ended with her death, and Lauren and her parents hold Harley responsible.
But Harley has his own version of the story, and with her parents in Europe, Lauren is left to deal with the situation alone. As he presses her to let him know his son, she is forced to rely on her conscience and instincts. Only her instincts are guiding her far from everything she and her family have always believed. They prompt her to trust Harley, to give him another chance to be a good father to Brandon—and to risk everything she’s ever known for everything she’s ever wanted. [from author web site]
