A working class hero discovers his true family—and his true love—while saving a sick child in a romance that “will melt the most jaded of hearts” (Kirkus).
Miami police officer Nick Martell doesn’t hesitate to be a bone marrow donor for Myles Harrison, a sick child he’s never met. But once in the heart of the wealthy Harrison family, Nick learns a shocking truth—he is actually a Harrison himself, born of a secret affair. Though the blue-collar bachelor struggles to accept the elite clan as his own, he’s compelled to stay for the sake of helping Myles…and for the connection he feels for the child’s beautiful nurse.
Amanda Kozlov never felt such a strong and sudden passion for a man before. But she just can’t let herself fall for a guy like Nick. His life as a cop is too dangerous and the wounds from his explosive family history are too fresh. Yet after watching Nick bond with Myles and experiencing tenderness in his arms, Amanda longs to take a chance on the only man with the power to shatter her heart. As drama swirls around them, only time will tell if they’re brave enough to give their love the future it deserves. . .
Gracen wraps up her Harrisons contemporary series with this heart-stealing fifth novel (after Between You and Me), cementing her reputation as a writer to watch. When honorable Florida cop Nick Martell gets a call saying his bone marrow is a match for a child with cancer, he doesn't hesitate to donate. But when he tells his parents who that child is, they drop a bombshell on him: he's a match for young, eminently brave Myles because biologically he's the boy's uncle. Nick was the product of a brief affair between Nick's mother, Maria, and ruthless billionaire Charles Harrison II, the patriarch of a big-money family (and a thoroughly loathsome character). As Nick struggles with his new reality, he sees a bright spot in the tumble of new Harrison relatives and realities: Amanda Kozlov, Myles's beautiful private-duty nurse. After Amanda witnessed a police widow's breakdown in the ER, she made one ironclad dating rule for herself: no first responders. But as she observes Nick's tenderness with Myles, Amanda can't help breaking that rule. Gracen's appealing tale makes it nearly impossible to say goodbye to a complicated family whom readers have come to love. To soften the blow, Gracen includes a bonus novella in this volume. Her hot yet sweet treat is headed for many a keeper shelf.
