You know how it is. The sun is hot, the drinks are cold and wearing a bikini and
hot pants is a legitimate dress code. And then you meet the cute guy (because
guys always look cute when they have a tan) and before you know it, romance is
blooming. Well, that’s how it is in the movies and books.
But in real life vacation flings (or holiday flings as we would say in my neck

her fling isn’t the only souvenir she’s taking away with her. She’s also
pregnant and about to discover what happens after the vacation is over.

Free-spirited Bec Watson was never having children––until she is. No way

Marry for money. But the girl who stole his heart is carrying their child. His
first mission? Follow her to Wishing Bridge Farm. But soon he’ll have to choose
between duty to his relatives and love for the real family he never thought he
