Former marine Alec Caldwell is happy to return home alive.
The scars he carriesâ€”inside and outâ€”are a burden he plans to
face alone. All he wants is a quiet life devoted to helping
wounded veterans. That is, until he meets pastry chef Marla
Hamiltonâ€”who's just too sweet to resist. But the single
mother is fighting her own battles. The last man in Marla's
life hurt her and put her daughter in danger, leaving the
child frightened of strangers. Alec seems like the
thrill-seeking men Marla avoids. But can becoming a family
give these wounded hearts a chance to heal?
