After witnessing his mother’s death, a once outgoing preschooler is now a quiet shadow of himself. The little boy suffers nightmares and rarely speaks, choosing to use the basic sign language he learned in daycare. Desperate to help his little nephew, Virge Stevens takes a leave of absence from the LAPD to bring Donovan, known as D to Montana for the therapy he needs.
A chance meeting at the library changes Virge and his nephew’s lives forever.
Jared Malone is one of five brothers, right smack damn in the middle. He is the peacemaker and the one who gets shit done. When his younger brother gets sick, Jared fills in reading to small children at the library. There he encounters a tall, dark, and handsome stranger and his cute little boy. Jared is immediately drawn to Virge but is still dealing with the betrayal of an abusive ex.
As the Malone family welcomes them to the ranch and into their lives, Virge’s instant attraction for Jared grows, but the cowboy is fifteen years younger than him. Will he be rejected?
Both men have secrets. Secrets that could destroy the connection between them. Can they overcome the odds and find happiness together?
He missed whatever Miranda said next as his gaze landed on a male vision in leather. The cowboy’s spurs jangled as he strode past. This was rural Montana. Who went to the library decked out in a cowboy hat, full-length duster, gloves, chaps, and boots with spurs? The guy should have looked completely ludicrous in that getup, but Virge’s immediate impression? Totally sexy. Tall with broad shoulders, the man radiated strength and power. He sat up straighter and stared as the hot cowboy entered the library.
“Virge, are you listening to me?” Miranda’s voice grated in his ear.
He flinched, almost dropping his phone. “Yes.”
After a few minutes of making noncommittal noises and saying he’d think about her ideas, he ended the call. “Okay, buddy, ready to get some books?”
D had disappeared.
