Megan McLean had never seen a man like Jake Lockwood before. Everything about the tall, dark Aussie stranger screamed danger from his chestnut hair streaked by the sun to his powerful shoulders and the wickedly sensual grin that made her bones melt.
He was her dark knight in shining armor, the renegade lover of her deepest fantasies, and he wanted only her.
His dreams were as wild and unbridled as his lovemaking, and every bit as seductive. “One day we’ll sail around the world,” he promised her, just the two of them, naked beneath a blanket of stars.
One month later they were married.
And one year later they were divorced.
Megan went back to her world and Jake went back to his, both determined to put their failed marriage behind them and get on with their lives.
Except for one small thing.
Now, six years later, Jake Lockwood is back in her life and about to discover he’s the father of her child…
Ms. Bretton is a new-to-me author who I found by going through my recommended for me books on Amazon. I am so glad I did. I love second chance romance novels and this was a good one. Jake didn’t realize he wanted a family until he almost walked away from the one he didn’t know he had. He didn’t want to be a no-good dad like his own. Megan never imagined she would see Jake again, or that he would be rich. When she was married to him he wasn’t. Now she just has to get away from him before he finds out she has his daughter.
If ever there was a case of right man, wrong time, this is the prime example. Jake is the perfect man for Megan, but at eighteen she had no idea what life had in store for her. She was a spoiled princess and he couldn’t keep her in the clothes and lifestyle that she was used too. Now six years later, she has grown a lot and knows what’s important in life and it’s not money.
This was a beautiful story. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
