Worst case scenario EVER… You have a hot one night stand with a hot guy who rocks your world. You don’t even know his last name and he’s actually just passing through your city. And then he never calls you again. Fast forward a little bit and you find out you’re pregnant. Damn!This is what happens to our heroine, Kelly, and even though she attempted to find Trey (that’s the only thing she had to go by) she was unsuccessful.

Now two years later she has moved to his city and happens to run into him after her bank was robbed and he’s the officer that shows up. Chance encounter.

Trey hasn’t stopped thinking of her since that night and cursing his luck that the paper with her number was lost. Now that fate brought her back to him AND he finds out he has a kid he decides he’s not letting them go. But will that work for Kelly?

I thought this story was really sweet, with enough sizzling chemistry between Kelly and Trey to keep things interesting. They’ve gone through something pretty crazy but they both felt more for each than just lust from the very first time and now they have a second chance.

Perfect story to curl up with on the couch with a blanket!

About Mackenzie McKade

Born and raised in Arizona, I guess you'd call me a desert rat. Well, actually, I'd be a desert rat that loves the mountains and lakes. Arizona gives me great pleasure, because if I'm not at the computer writing or buried nose deep in a book you'll find me on a four-wheeler, or a jet ski, or being pulled behind my 26’ Monterey boat on an oblong tube called a ‘hot dog’ laughing my ass off. In fact, my family says I have an unnerving cackle cutting through the waves--similar to a witch!

Yes, that's right this witch has a family... Bill is my wonderful husband of twenty-two years. Tia, Samantha and Ashley are my three beautiful girls and my greatest accomplishments to date. And the light of my life is a devilishly handsome grandson, Dusty.

As writing is a passion with many—it’s an obsession with me. Who knew that the wild things going on in my head someone would actually read? But I'm thankful you do and I hope you find joy and entertainment in my sometimes—okay most of the time—risqué ramblings.
