He answers to no one…

No one has ever truly touched Jack Travis’s heart or soul…until Ella Varner comes along. She appears one day on his doorstep with fury in her eyes and a baby in her arms. Her troubled sister is the mother and according to Ella, Jack Travis is the father.  But when Ella demands that Jack take responsibility for the first time in his life, he ends up taking much more than that…

She trusts no one…

Ella Varner is responsible and controlled.  Her childhood taught her that love is fleeting and best avoided.  That is, until baby Luck appears on her doorstep after her reckless sister, Tara, abandons him.  What Luke needs now is stability and Ella’s determined to do what is best for him.  As her bond with the helpless child grows stronger each day, Ella goes to Houston in search of the father. What she finds there will change her life forever…

And when things heat up between these two, the time for talking is long gone…

Lisa Kleypas lets the sparks fly once again in a novel featuring the larger-than-life Travis family.  Full of sizzling sensuality and undeniable heart, her storytelling will grab hold of you from the very first page to the last.

This was an enjoyable romance story that covered all emotions from laughter, romance and tears.  Once I started reading this, every page had me turning for the next one.  My rating: 4 stars
