Years ago, a Dear John letter and then an IED explosion overseas rocked Davis Donnelly’s world and left him unclear about his marital status. He’d signed divorce papers, but broken mentally and physically, he’d never bothered to find out if his marriage actually ended. Now that he’s about to start a new position as an outreach minister, it’s time to settle things once and for all. At the moment he tracks down his wife—or former wife?—she takes a tumble while chasing a little boy. Her son. And that’s when life flips upside down.

Joy Jennings Donnelly made her share of mistakes. But one thing she never considered a mistake was her child, and she’ll do anything to protect him. Even keep his paternity a secret. When she’s suddenly injured with not a soul to help her or her son, Joy is forced to rely on the man who has the most reasons to hate her. 

EXCERPT:

The sweet haze of Davis’s lips on hers still consumed her, though now he laced her neck with light kisses. Despite the pleasure coursing down to her toes, Joy tried to string together Davis’s profession of his feelings from moments before.

He loved her? Had always loved her and only her? That couldn’t be right.

A gust of wind kicked up, smelling of rain and rifling through her hair.

“Davis?” Her voice came out raspy.

“Hmmm?” His kisses slowed.

Why would she ruin a perfectly wonderful moment?

Reality smacked her. That little boy inside was why. She’d already let Hank become too attached. The good Lord knew she was attached too. She had to know more about how Davis felt. “We need to talk.”

With a breathy moan, he straightened and nuzzled his nose against hers. “Do we have to? Seems like I haven’t kissed you since Moby Dick was a minnow.”

She couldn’t help a chuckle. “We have to.”

Easing back, he brushed a wayward strand of hair away from her cheek, then cradled her face. “What’cha thinking?”

She captured her lower lip between her teeth. A thrashing ramped up in her chest, her heart thudding at the risk of more pain for both of them. But she needed to know. “You said you still love me? Even after everything I’ve—?”

He pressed a finger over her mouth. “We both made mistakes. I do love you, Joy. Always have.”

She caught his hand and searched his face for some hint of anger. None. Maybe he had forgiven her. “But what about Hank? Can you love Hank?”
