Will he pass the daddy test?
With his job in jeopardy, it couldn't be a worse time for Sheriff Nate Landry's recent past to come back to haunt him. But it would take an army to stop SWAT team leader Julie Smith. The fellow cop—and sister of his ex-fiancée—wants one thing from the beleaguered lawman: custody of the toddler son that Nate didn't know he had.
He may not be natural daddy material, but he quickly takes a shine to little Duke. And then there are the feelings Nate's been hiding for years. Only now Julie's running for sheriff of Harmony Valley—against him. Time to retreat? Not if he wants a future with the woman he loves.

I'm just going to start out by admitting that I just may be half in love with Sheriff Nate Landry. He is seriously swoony but not for his good looks (which he has!) or his suave (which he doesn't have much of!). His attraction, for me, is his quiet strength, his patience, kindness and his good manners. Is that weird? He is a true gentleman and I just adore him.
Then you add in a super cute two year old and that man gets even MORE attractive. Yup. It's true. That two year old Drake made my mommy instincts hum. I want him.
This is a slow building romance. The sparks don't really jump off the page but the story has a gentle pull that kept me engaged and interested. There are all kinds of meddling, crazy and quirky characters thrown into this book. Combine that with the small town antics and you will be shaking your head and rolling your eyes, just like me. It was a lot of fun.
