Miles Hampton is terrified his nephew, Thad, will end up like his father. Tom had been reckless, prone to depression and generally a wild child. Ultimately, Tom had committed suicide—or so Miles thinks. So he’s determined to keep Thad on the straight and narrow.
Nessa is Thad’s godmother, down from Canada to ensure a smooth transition into the family that he’s just meeting for the first time. Uncle Miles is gorgeous, stubborn and too damn sexy for Nessa’s own good. Upon meeting him, she is instantly attracted but wary of the darkness in him. That darkness is what she feels is going to be the greatest obstacle in his relationship with the energetic six-year-old. Soon she is trying to fight Miles’ demons and open his heart, but not just for him and Thad anymore. Nessa falls hard for the scorching tycoon and into a hot affair that can only be brief…unless she changes his mind.
