Deadly Arrival (Hardy Brothers Security #16) by Lily Harper Hart
The first Hardy baby is coming – and it’s coming soon.
Emma Pritchard is ready to pop and everyone is watching her as if she’s a bomb that’s about to explode. Finn Hardy is a ball of nerves. He’s excited for his baby to arrive, but he’s also terrified that he’ll somehow screw up things when Emma goes into labor.
James Hardy finds amusement in his brother’s panic, but that changes when Emma’s father, Lance Pritchard, escapes from prison and everyone suspects he’s coming after Emma.
The Hardys circle the wagons and put Emma’s safety above all else as they try to track Pritchard down and make sure he doesn’t go after the one thing Finn can’t live without.
For her part, Emma is a mess. Not only are her hormones raging – and her body changing as it prepares to give birth – but now she has to worry about the man who abused her for years showing up to finish the job.
Things come to a head at the same time, and when Emma goes into labor there’s only one person present to deliver the baby. Lance Pritchard has something nefarious on his mind, and it’s not what anyone expected. Can the Hardys stop Pritchard in time to save Emma and their next generation?
In the end, someone is going to die. What happens next is anyone’s guess, but one member of the Hardy family is going to be left shaken to the core.
