He paid a high price to serve his country, and has no plans to risk his heart...
The man known only as Flynn lives on the periphery of life. Until the day a little girl drops into his life, on a quest for the dragon of Dragon Hill, the billionaire's estate where he acts as caretaker. She charms him with her cleverness and bright curiosity, and reaches a place in his heart he thought long hardened to stone. When her lovely courageous mother appears, that place in his heart is shattered forever. But his barriers are high, and strong.
Riley West has dealt with the worst life has thrown at her with the same determination she passed on to her daughter. When Gracie becomes fascinated with Flynn, a distrustful Riley tries to intervene. She has been running from her past for too long to let down her guard, even for this man who, after stealing her little girl's heart, is working his way into hers.
Can tough, hardened Flynn believe enough to let them into his life? Can Riley finally stop running and accept the help only he has ever offered?
