Title: Island Haven
Author: Amy Knupp
Mercedes Stone has no time for men. Between caring for her sick grandmother, running her own business and volunteering at her family’s women’s shelter she barely has time for herself. So dating a man as complicated as Scott Pataki is definitely out of the question.
That doesn’t mean she’ll turn her back on Scott’s pregnant teenage sister. Even if helping her does put Mercedes dangerously close to the temptation that is Scott. It’s not just the killer abs and dimples that make him so irresistible. It’s the man she sees when his guard is down. If only she could help him realize the importance of family. And remind herself that his family doesn’t include her.
Thank you for picking up the fifth The Texas Firefighters book! If you’ve read any of the earlier books in the series, you may remember mentions of paramedic Scott Pataki. Scott seemed like a good guy, so I thought I’d give him his own story.
He is a good guy, but he’s in a bad place. A dark one. And he believes the only way to save himself from the things that are eating away at him is to escape San Amaro Island.
It’s a bad time to get involved with someone. Anyone.
When his pregnant half sister, someone he’d never met and never wanted to meet, shows up and brings Mercedes Stone with her, involvement is inevitable. That doesn’t mean he’s not going to fight it for all he’s worth, though.
