Determined not to make the same mistakes with his son that he made with his daughter, Nic Beuve is single-minded . . . until Hope Delaney walks into his life. Burning desire, a deep need to protect, and a woman who looks like an angel break down Nic's defenses until he can’t ignore them any longer. He wants Hope, and what Nic wants . . .
Hope Delaney is a woman with a past that almost broke her. She tries to keep people at bay for their own protection and hers. Fortunately for her, no one in New Orleans listens when she says she wants to be alone. Hope thinks she can walk away at any time, but she wasn't counting on a man like Nic to weaken her defenses OR a nosy but loving Cajun Boss. Maman Rose wants Nic and Hope together and what Maman Rose wants, happens.
Will their relationship survive an ex with an agenda or will her past come between them—or kill them?
