It’d been more than three years since I last disrobed a woman, and she definitely wasn’t screaming like this woman…whom I just met and who was in labor in the back of my SUV. Little did I know that this chance encounter was about to change my life in ways I could never imagine.
I’d spent the last three years searching for my fiancée, unsuccessfully. I never thought I’d love again. And then I met Mina.
From the moment I met her, I didn’t want to let her out of my sight. I never expected how much I’d enjoy having her and her newborn son, Ford, living with me at the compound, and I dreaded the day when they would pack their things and leave.
My draw to Mina is undeniable. She’s gorgeous and caring and selfless, but can I move beyond my past and see a future with her?
Ash shouldn’t act like a complete stranger…after all he delivered my son. But even when I do a simple act like hug him as a sign of gratitude for the kindness he’s shown my son and I, he steps away…although he does seem to be lingering a bit longer with each forced embrace. Maybe one day?
I couldn’t have stumbled upon a better man to help me in my predicament. Ash is beyond handsome and gives me a sense of safety that I’ve never felt before. Not only has he put a roof over my head,but he’s even helping me soothe my newborn son in the middle of the night…although I don’t think he wants his friends to know that quite yet.
Ford deserves someone better than his biological father. He needs a man like Ash, a man who can protect him and teach him how to protect himself. He needs a good, generous man as a father, someone who will love him unconditionally.
He needs Ash.
I need Ash.
I’m just afraid that the secrets and lies I’m carrying with me will be the things that make a life with Ash impossible. Will the truth set me free, or bury me forever?
