Tough, gorgeous soldier of fortune Reilly (Whatever his other name is) promised his best friend he’d take care of his wife and baby, bringing them out of the war-torn South American country they were stuck in. He was expecting a spoiled, glamorous socialite, not a quiet, stubborn girl devoted to the tiny infant.
Carlie Forrest had been waiting a long time to take her final vows, but caring for the new-born baby of a dead woman was more important, leaving her stuck in the abandoned convent. She wasn’t going to just hand the baby over to a man who looked like he’d never changed a diaper in his life, and she didn’t mind pretending to be the dead socialite in order to keep the child safe.
Everyone wants him – the rebels, the dead dictator’s army, the rich American grandparents, and Carlie. Can she let him go when the safest place was cold and heartless?
He’s all business – he has no intention of falling for his best friend’s widow. She’s all business – she doesn’t want to fall in love with this big, tough, gorgeous man.
But love and trouble don’t listen to good intentions, not when you’re thrown together with your unexpected and inconvenient soul mate.
