Book Description (from back cover):

After doing time, Justin Dillon was a changed man determined to lead a decent life. Then a strange woman swept through town, dumping a seven-year-old in his lap, claiming Justin was the daddy and disappearing. Justin was only beginning to take baby steps toward betterment—was he ready to be a father?

Or ready for family, for that matter? Because at every turn, there was Gina Steele. The young woman had been so busy skipping grades and getting degrees, she’d never had time to live. But Justin would change all that—with just one kiss. Could this sheriff’s sister join forces with an ex-con to make a home for a lost little boy? Stranger things had happened in Destiny….

Well, this one is going to be brief, but I don't have much to say.  Simply...

This is the first book I've read by this author or from this mini-series, and I really enjoyed it.  I liked the characters, especially little Jacoby. Each time the story was shown from his view point was a highlight.

The story was interesting, and the hints to previous stories in the series intriguing. 

The only down point was the ending.  Unfortunately, it was a little rushed. Like the author had this fully developed story, then realized she was about to run out of room.

Despite that, I would certainly be interested in reading more.


  1. Congrats on finishing the challenge! This sounds good. I need to get busy and read some Harlequins.

  2. Thanks! The thing about Harlequins is they tend to be short. It makes them easier for me to fit into my schedule.


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
