When injured police officer Sean McKittrick heads to his cottage, he’s planning on some much needed rest and recuperation. But the idyllic peace he expected to find is shattered by…children?
It’s not that Sean dislikes kids, he just isn’t interested in having any of his own. Or in settling down, for that matter. Ever. Unfortunately, the woman in charge of his young neighbors has an unsettling way of making him forget why.
Grace Daniels is attractive, single, and despite her brave face, overwhelmed by the responsibility of caring for three nieces and a nephew. When she helps Sean out of a jam, he feels obliged to return the favor, but he soon realizes there’s more to this cobbled-together little family than meets the eye. Grace is hiding something, a secret that piques Sean’s cop suspicions—and stirs his protective instincts.
As Sean digs for the truth, however, the line between professional curiosity and personal interest becomes increasingly blurred. A family might not be quite what he had in mind for his future, but he’s beginning to wonder if he can live without this one…or if he wants to.
It’s stories like this that make me enjoy romance books. This is such a sweet and heartwarming story. I can easily remember it after several months, and several other books, and that makes it special.
I love the accurate portrayal of people, both adults and children. Children so rarely appear in romance stories, except as side notes, but in this entire series children play an important role in each family, and this book is no exception. They are realistic and adorable and amusing. The adults are much the same way, with very character having a fully developed personality, complete with good and bad parts.
The romance in this story is swoonworthy and sweet. It made for an enjoyable afternoon read, curled up in the world of dreams and possibilities. Like Sean himself, this book is a keeper.
