Two single parents and three adorable kids are about to have a summer they'll never forget in this sexy, heartwarming new novel of the New York Times bestselling series.
Following the sudden death of his wife, Nathan Bell spent nearly two years burying himself in work and neglecting his biggest responsibility: his daughter. Overcome with guilt, he wants to connect with little Marley, but he doesn't know how to do it alone. And then Jenna Savage throws him a lifeline.
A single mum of twins, Jenna is more than capable of taking care of Nathan's adorable two-year-old and wants to help Nathan however she can. As the days go by and her attraction to Nathan grows, she can't help wondering what might happen if they became a family for real. And the closer everyone becomes, the more right it feels.
Falling in love forces Nathan to face his biggest fear, and when hearts - both big and little - are on the line, the only thing scarier than needing Jenna and her kids so much is losing them all.

Daniels (the Alabama Summer series) rounds out her Dirty Deeds series with this middling single-parent romance. Workaholic restaurant owner Nathan Bell has been struggling since his wife committed suicide two years ago, leaving him alone with their newborn daughter, Marley. His parents stepped in to raise Marley, but they're done with covering for him, so he needs a contingency plan. Luckily, Jenna Savage and her adorable eight-year-old twins, Olivia and Oliver, come to his rescue. Jenna offers to watch Marley while looking after her own kids, and soon sparks are flying between Jenna and Nathan. They acknowledge their attraction, but they both have more than a few past scars keeping them from fully giving away their hearts, and they also need to consider how their kids might feel about them starting to date. Some plot twists and obstacles meant to keep the couple apart sometimes feel a little forced, and the juxtaposition of Nathan and Jenna's sexual relationship with their business relationship is disconcerting, but the payoff is worth the wait. The children truly make this novel shine, all the way to the family-size happy ending.
