He didn’t think he’d fall in love with her, but he did. Will she stay and make both him and his daughter happy?
The doctor told her memory could come back at any time. Now Beth is having flashbacks of a little girl and an angry man, but she has no idea who they are. Spending time with Scott and his daughter she starts to have feelings she knows she shouldn’t. Scott tells her he doesn’t care about her past he wants to be in her future.

This story was a bit slow paced, but still a pleasant read. The main characters are enhanced by the secondary ones, my favorite was the hero’s daughter. The ending had a twist that kept it from being too predictable. If you like traditional romances this would be one for you.
