Navy SEAL Jericho Cook is living a lie. In order to save Base Camp, the sustainable community he's building with his friends in Chance Creek, Montana, he must marry in the next 40 days - and try for a family. But after the horrors he's witnessed, Jericho's sworn to never put himself in charge of a child he can't completely protect. At least he's found the perfect wife. Savannah is sexy, smart, talented - and far too busy pursuing a career as a concert pianist to ever want kids.
Savannah Edwards came to Chance Creek to chase an abandoned dream. She has one shot to prepare for the audition that could make or break her career - she's determined nothing will distract her from her goal. But when a passionate encounter with Jericho leaves her pregnant, her future hopes are thrown into chaos. Is it possible to have it all? A career, a child, and most of all, the powerful, attractive man who has stolen her heart?
When Jericho announces he never intends to be a father, Savannah realizes he might risk shattering an entire community rather than back down. With the stakes so high, can she persuade the SEAL to give fatherhood a chance?
