Carolyn Evert couldn’t take the constant worry and stress that came with having a Navy SEAL fiancé, so she broke it off…then realized she was pregnant. After radio silence greeted her repeated attempts to inform Zach of the pregnancy, Carolyn moved on with her life. Little Austin is happy and healthy, and while she hates the idea of him growing up without a father, she’s determined to safeguard the jewelry store her mother founded and make sure Austin never feels unwanted. But everything changes when the store is robbed at gunpoint. Carolyn outwits the robber and defuses the hostage situation—then in strides Zach as part of the security response team. Zach quickly makes it clear he had no idea about the pregnancy, and Carolyn eventually agrees to let him into their son’s life…but she’s a lot more hesitant about letting Zach back into her own heart.
Zach Vale won’t let anything keep him from being the best dad he can be. If Carolyn wants nothing to do with him, he’ll live with that. But he can’t help but want to protect her and their son. It soon becomes apparent the robbery isn’t an isolated incident—and more than Carolyn’s business is in danger, especially when she insists on investigating the robbery herself. As she works to solve the mystery of who’s behind the vicious attacks, Zach works to make himself part of their lives and keep them safe. After all, he’s still in love with Carolyn, and maybe if he can be her hero for once, he can convince her to give him another chance.
