Fans of contemporaries, especially category romances, will enjoy spending more time with the Luckadeau clan.
The plot moves quickly, and even though the story's end seems a little too conveniently tied together, many readers
will look forward to the continuing
family saga.

Teacher Julie Donovan has just relocated to a new town in Texas with her young daughter. Of all the kindergarten classes in all the state, Julie is surprised to see her one-night stand, her daughter's father, enroll his own 5-year-old daughter, all the while pretending they are strangers.

But to Griffin Luckadeau they really are strangers, and Julie's little family is a mess he wants nothing to do with. Julie attempts to make her own way in the town, but local politics, a fire and her daughter's inconvenient friendships all seem to be pushing these two strong-willed Texans together.
