A divorced businessman with no intention of remarrying falls hard for his daughter's Kiwi teacher and discovers affairs have consequences when she gets pregnant in this US-set romance by award-winning author Karina Bliss.
The last thing Joe Fraser needs is an opinionated young teacher telling him he needs to get his act together with his ten-year-old daughter. It's hard enough working all hours to meet his estranged father's medical bills. Who the hell does Philippa Browne think she is? Unfortunately he's desperate enough to take her advice. But when he attends a four-day school camp as parent helper his clashes with Miss Browne take an unexpected direction…
Pip hasn't resisted the advances of charming, easy-going Californians to fall for this taciturn tough guy so close to returning to New Zealand. But does any woman walk away from the temptation of a dangerous attraction? And they both have a safety net – she's leaving the States soon. Her unexpected pregnancy changes everything.
Pip's not ready for motherhood and while Joe's suggesting marriage, his heart's not in it. Unfortunately hers is.
As for Joe, he's been down this road before. But is he really repeating the past...or finally getting a chance to do things right?
