The black sheep of Fallbrook is back … and he's in for the surprise of his life.
Former bad boy, now-decorated Army Ranger Brody McBride is home and on a mission: Find the woman he never should have left behind and right the wrong he did eight years ago.
When the man she loved broke her heart and skipped town, Rain Evans picked up the pieces. But along with heartbreak, Brody left her something infinitely better than she could have imagined: two beautiful daughters. One she gave birth to, and the other she rescued from the woman who helped destroy her relationship with Brody.
Brody is shocked to discover he's a father, and he's more determined than ever to win back Rain and protect his girls. Can they rekindle the love they once shared and become the family they were always meant to be? Or will a danger from their past return and ruin everything?

I can remember the first book I read of Jennifer Ryan's, in fact it's the one she is giving away. I loved that book and everything she's written since. When news came my way of her starting a new series I was like...NO! I loved the characters from the first one. Then I read her story in the "Confessions of a Secret Admirer" and thought, okay, I can do this. I'm so happy I did because if I hadn't I would never had read Rain and Brody's story. When Brody leaves he misses so much. It's such a shame that he wasn't there when his kids were born. I can't believe how much crap poor Rain had to put up with. You won't be able to help but fall in love with their family and want more and more. Not to worry, Owen story is next. Happy reading!
