A Hero to Keep Publisher's Summary

Sometimes you have to fight for what - for who - you love.  

Shannon Vanderhoff's childhood taught her early on that nothing was hers to keep, not clothes, or toys, or even people. So she lives, loves, and lets go. She's not looking for a hero.  

But with custody of her traumatized six-year-old nephew on the line, she needs help. Charming Greg Hawkins, a comic book artist and art therapist, insists he can coax Ryan into speaking again, enabling the boy to reveal what he saw the night of his mother's death at his father's hands. And though Shannon's skeptical of Greg's methods, there's no denying that he brings light and color to their lives.  

Greg, one of 12 siblings, knows anything worth having is worth fighting for. If anyone can prepare Shannon for the upcoming battle, it's Greg and his family.  

But will she fight to keep him, too?  

Contains mature themes.

    Desperate to save her daughter's life, Dr. Amelia Young will do whatever it takes, including show up on the doorstep of the sperm donor who made Jordan's life possible in the first place. Chef Finn Hawkins is taken aback by the woman in his kitchen, asking for a donation of genetic material like a cup of sugar. Anonymously donating as a college student was impulsive. But how can he refuse to help save the life of the 13-year-old daughter he's never met? Jordan Young has ideas of her own, and fate's got plans for all of them.

Despite Hayden's initial feelings for Ronni, everything changed when she captured - then broke - Ian's heart. Hayden's avoided her since. Now, Nick's in trouble and needs Hayden's guidance. It's time to keep his promise. But getting close to Ronni stirs up old emotions, not all of them good. Then there's the new chemistry they're both feeling.
