Blake Donavan is a loner, and he likes it that way. There’s no room in his life for love …that is, until a little girl shows up on his doorstep and calls him “Daddy”! As a bewildered Blake struggles to come to terms with newfound fatherhood, he’s thrown for another loop. The woman he loved and lost, Meredith Blake, is back in town. And there might just be a chance for Blake and Meredith to give family a second chance…
