Burned out from working in the E.R., Fran accepts a live-in position to work in widower Dr. Xavier Giraud's office and care for his children—more specifically his 13-year-old daughter, who hasn't spoken or walked since her mother died in a car accident. Fran and Xavier are attracted to each other, and they embark on an affair; however, Xavier's sole focus must be his daughter's recovery, and Fran has secrets she's not sharing. Can they learn to trust their love? ASSIGNMENT: SINGLE FATHER (3) by Caroline Anderson is an interesting and compelling read with an intense storyline and a passionate love affair between two larger-than-life characters.
