A one night stand with no names exchanged.
Six years later, she comes face to face with her baby’s father again.
Aurora Michaels isn’t the same girl she was that spring night. No longer homeless and living in the back room of a diner where she worked, she’s now a member of the wealthy Kingston family. She has her daughter, a career and has adjusted to her new normal.
Billionaire Nick Dare is a man who takes charge. He runs the hotel arm of the family empire and his life revolves around business and travel. A quick stop at his brother's movie premier has him doing a double take.
The woman who haunts his dreams is there. He’s been given a second chance and is determined to make the most of it.
When he learns about their daughter, Nick becomes a man on a mission. Aurora and their child are his. Even if he has to knock down Aurora’s emotional walls to prove it.
Sweet & sexy!
This is a fabulous story that’s about second chances with a surprise baby in the mix. Aurora is a sympathetic heroine having grown up in foster care and later finding a long lost sibling. Soon her life has changed for the better for both her and her daughter. And then comes the kicker, the man from her past is in her present. Nick is a terrific hero. Maybe a little bossy but so sexy. Yum! His reaction to the daughter he never knew about is emotional and watching him become a father is heart melting. This is a fantastic story full of terrific characters and a wonderful family atmosphere. Full of emotion, drama, and sweet love. Worth the read!.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
One night, no last names …
I've been waiting, it seems for forever, for Aurora's story. Then to have it be a crossover novel with the new Dare series, BONUS. I love the Dare's and have enjoyed the Kingston's. I was looking forward to knowing what happened with Leah's daddy. Quite the story.
I think one of the things I enjoyed most and wish I had seen more of, was Aurora's charity. It is such a great idea and I was so glad she was able to accomplish that.
Now back to Aurora and Nick. They are actually a good couple. She feels more comfortable with him than anyone else and she is able to open up about her childhood and how she feels about it and her fears that stem from it. Nick is understanding and compassionate, and a freaking God with his patience. But the best part was when Melly sat Aurora down and point blank told her to imagine her life with Nick as just Leah's dad. Could she live with that? Probably the best thing that she could have done.
This is emotional, sweet and tender story with characters that have big hearts, know their flaws and offer unconditional love and support. A laugh, a sigh, a tear and then breathless…another great read from Carly Phillips.
