He had a plan…
She changed it all!
Major Aidan Murphy arrives in the charming small town of Hollydale to take full guardianship of his six-year-old nephew. Only there’s a slight problem—his vivacious, fiery co-guardian. School teacher Natalie Harrison has no intention of letting Aidan take her best friend’s heartbroken little boy away. Now Aidan must convince Natalie that blood is stronger than love…even if his heart tells him otherwise.
She sank into the sofa opposite the major, who’d already made an impression on Danny. She only hoped he wouldn’t be devastated when Aidan left in a hurry.
Protecting Danny and keeping him on the road to recovery were her top priorities.
“Why don’t you start at the beginning?” Aidan scrubbed his clean-shaven face with his right hand. Then he lowered both sleeves to his wrists, but not before she again caught a glimpse of a faded but ragged scar running about four inches to the back of his hand.
“What happened?” Natalie pointed to his arm.
“That happened years ago and isn’t important. Danny is. How long has he been coming here?”
That was as much of an answer as he was probably willing to give her at this point.
Her life centered around making sure kids could be kids. Too often the pressures of the world weighed them down too early. In Danny’s case, he’d lost his mother so young, and Shelby hadn’t listed a father on his birth certificate. Loss wasn’t easy at any age, a lesson she’d learned the hard way, but Natalie would do her best to give him some semblance of a normal life from here on out. Love and laughter went a long way in childhood.
And in adulthood as well.
