Even though the plot of this reissue is light and predictable, strong sexual chemistry and witty banter make this an enjoyable read. Amusing complications arise when Gray struggles to be a "gentleman" in the face of Shelby's desire for a night of passion. NOTE: Originally released as a direct mail-only title from Harlequin's Maitland Maternity series.

Shelby Lord's quest to find her birth mother lands her on the doorstep of Gray Jackson's Texas ranch. She hopes he has information that will solve the mystery of her birth.

Not only is she wrong, but soon Shelby's own plans come to a screeching halt when she realizes it's Gray that needs help.

He has his hands full temporarily caring for his twin niece and nephew—a pair of rambunctious 4-year-olds—and there is no way Shelby can walk away.
