A second divorce and a new baby wasn't the vision Alison Hayes had for her future. Now a single mother with two young boys, she wants to focus on her kids and what's left of her stagnant career. When Detective Johnny Rhay Bennett breezes into her life with his charming smile and country-boy accent, she's not interested. She doesn't need another man in her life, or another reason to make people talk. Johnny Rhay doesn't believe in love at first sight, but after a one-night stand in paradise with Ali, he can't get her out of his head. With Nashville in his rear-view mirror, he's determined to make Ali his, even if it means moving to California. Ali's not easy, and she's living on just this side of bitter after her divorce, but Johnny doesn't care. He's up for the challenge. At least, he believes he's up for it until baby Micah is stolen right out from under his nose. When Ali's faced with her worst nightmare, Johnny is the only person who can pull her out of her despair, forcing her to stay strong and not give up hope of finding her missing child. Johnny has to keep it together and get that sweet little boy home safe before his dreams of having a family vanish too.
