Here is author Karen Leabo’s poignant and heartwarming story of two people who have struggled through profound loss—only to find love again in each other’s arms. The last place that recently widowed Millicent Jones wants to deliver her baby is on the front steps of her farmhouse, deep in the Texas backcountry. Luckily for Millicent, help is on the way, in the (incredibly handsome) form of Dr. Jase Desmond. Unluckily for her, Jase ushers little Mary Jane Jones into the world in the back of the ambulance. Overcome by her tenacity, the doctor makes a gambit for his pretty patient. And though Millie must admit he’s quite a catch, she’s just not fishing for a man right now—or maybe ever.
Dr. Jase Desmond has been going through the motions for years. Ever since his wife passed away, Jase has struggled to keep his family together. He may be dreadfully out of practice when it comes to women, but Millicent makes him want to embrace life again. Despite her reluctance—and the fact that their oldest children can’t stand one another—Jase is determined to prove to Millicent that loving him would not be a betrayal . . . but a perfect new beginning.
