Anita Ricardo had moved to town to make a home for her baby alone. She'd learned long ago that she didn't need anyone, not even Luke Dole, the sexy single dad she'd once fantasized about. But how could a hormonally challenged expectant mother steer clear of her former crush when he was so irresistible?
Luke had never dreamed he'd again be face-to-face with Anita a very alluring, very pregnant Anita. Once, he'd let her go. But he wouldn't make that mistake twice. Because now Anita needed him, and he planned to show her exactly what fulfilling the promise of fatherhood really meant .
