When Maria asked Navy SEAL Trevor Daniels to father her child—no strings attached—the hardened SEAL had no idea just how explosive their chemistry would be. As part of their arrangement, he vowed never to contact her again after the positive pregnancy test, but he never stopped thinking about the fiery woman who had captured his heart. A year later, when one of Trevor’s dark ops missions ends with the death of his captain and suspicions aimed at him, Maria’s the only investigator he knows who can help him crack the case.
Maria Blanchard had been raised to be a proper Southern Belle—an stereotype so completely wrong for her she’d retreated into books during her high school years. When the police academy finally gave her the guts to be the woman she’d always desired, she realized she didn’t need anyone to achieve her dreams. Not to get her dream job, and certainly not to get her dream baby. Still, when her childhood crush agreed to father her baby, she never expected to fall for the hunky SEAL.
When Trevor shows up on Maria’s doorstep in need of her help, he calls in his favor. But being wanted for a military crime means that Maria won’t just be helping Trevor, she’ll be harboring a fugitive, and the father of her child. Unable to say no, with her pride and her heart screaming yes, Maria agrees to help Trevor before they break ties forever.
But as their bond grows stronger and love ignites, it becomes a rush to save Trevor’s life before they lose out on a future they could only dream of…
