Iyana Smith never expected to meet a man like Commander Thayne Austin—let alone get pregnant with his baby. One night of passion together should never have had consequences, but it did. Not wanting serious ties to a career military man, she decides to keep her pregnancy a secret. Unfortunately things don’t go as she plans, and when Thayne finds out, he proposes marriage. Iyana turns him down flat. Duty was not enough to build a marriage on, and Iyana refuses to be any man’s ball and chain. Yet, how can she deny her baby a father? And how much longer can she refute her strong attraction to the man who threatens to penetrate the wall of defense she’s built around her heart?
For one wonderful night, Navy SEAL Thayne Austin allowed his quest for passion overrule his typical stalwart rationale. Then he had to leave to attend a required training. Returning four months later, he’s surprise to find Iyana pregnant with his child. Even though marriage and children aren’t in his immediate plans, no way is he going to allow his child to grow up without a father.
