Lauryn Anderson is unemployed and struggling to make ends meet. One night away from having to move into a homeless shelter, Lauryn plans to enjoy her last night by staying in a low cost motel. The last thing Lauryn expects when she awakes is to be trapped under a tree waiting to be rescued. Steve Mitchell becomes her hero when he reaches in and pulls her to safety.
Steve Mitchell is taken by Lauryn the instant he gets her to safety. Yet, she is definitely not the type of woman he wants in his or his daughter, Hannah’s life. When he realizes just how much she is struggling, he makes Lauryn an offer she can’t resist—to become his housekeeper and nanny for his daughter. It isn’t long before the attraction between him and Lauryn blossoms. Still, he can’t help but wonder what she will do when she discovers the secret he is keeping from her.
