The best decision they’ll ever make.
Lacey Hamilton is used to living in the background. Overshadowed her entire life, she stepped out of the Hollywood limelight and into the role she’s meant to play: a counsellor, part of the High Risk Team started by The Lemonade Stand women’s shelter in Santa Raquel.
Her caseload leads her to the doorstep of Jeremiah “Jem” Bridges to rescue a little boy. She’s not supposed to fall in love with the rugged construction worker and his adorable son. Love and duty, though, don’t always agree. Especially when a truth is uncovered that neither she nor Jem is prepared to face.
This book is…not ordinary. I think it’s powerful. And emotionally compelling. And I hope so much you give it a chance. I can tell you why I think this, and hope this. I can describe Jem to you. He’s the hero of my heart, But I’m afraid if I say too much, you’ll move on without giving him a chance.
Jem’s a construction worker. Okay, yeah, he owns the business, and wears a shirt and ties to work every day. But he wears them with jeans. And he learned the business with his hands before he ever considered being the brains behind it all.
He’s alpha all the way. And he’s a single dad to a four-year-old I wish I could hug. He’s a good dad. Involved. Aware. And firm, too, when he needs to be.
And…Jem is…well… I hope you’ll give him a chance. I can’t imagine a romance reader not being glad they did.
Then there’s Lacey. Sometimes I wanted to just do her hair and makeup, force her into an attention-getting outfit and push her out the door. But she has Kacey for that. My job was to be patient. To listen. And tell her story. Her story touched me deeply. So here it is…
