After staring down the wrong end of a gun, not once, but twice, all Patty Harmon had wanted was to have a little fun. She’d spent most of her life taking care of everyone else but herself. While she had a plan for her life, she hadn’t yet started to live her life. So, when the aloof, distant, and emotionally unavailable New York State Trooper Reese McGinn takes an interest in her, she’s all in...for the moment.
When the moment is over, they go their separate ways, and Patty can get back to her life plan. But once again, that plan is interrupted when Patty finds herself pregnant. She’ll let Reese back in for the sake of the child, but can she keep Reese from stealing her heart?
New York State Trooper Reese McGinn has been haunted by his late mother's confession and the secret she took to her grave. For the last seven years, he’s done nothing but move from job to job and town to town, vowing to never put down roots. But when his summer fling with Patty Harmon ends with a child on the way, he decides it's time to forget the past.
Only, the past doesn’t want to forget him, and a deadly secret rises from the grave, threatening to take away everything he thought he never wanted.
