I learned the hard way that alcohol and bad decisions don’t mix. After a crazy night in Vegas, I married—and promptly divorced—Army Ranger Xander McLean. I told myself it was for the best when we went our separate ways. Except fate had other plans. With no way to contact him overseas, our daughter is a secret I’ve carried for nearly the past two years. I’ve resigned myself to being a single mother—until Xander shows up one night out of the blue and stirs all those old feelings to life…
My feet have barely touched America soil when an unexpected letter from my lawyer delivers shocking news; due to a technicality, Lydia and I are still married. But that’s not the only surprise—I have a little girl who looks just like me. The fact that Lydia kept my daughter a secret makes me want to throttle her. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to do a hell of a lot more to her, too. The spark I felt two years ago is still there, burning bright as ever, and I’ll be damned if I let her get away a second time. When danger hits close to home, I’ll do everything in my power to keep my family safe—and win Lydia’s heart in the process.
