Tanner McCord left his ranch in South Dakota and flew to Australia to settle his brother's estate. Doug had died serving his country. The lawyer could have handled this but Doug had a girlfriend who had just given birth to his son. In spite of some very bad history between Tanner and Doug, they still talked. Tanner knew exactly what Doug had planned to do about his girlfriend and her baby. Tanner just could not allow that to happen. He needed to handle this in person.

Won this Through Goodreads First Read.
Really enjoyed this book. Was fast of the mark and didn't give a massive character back story. Everything unfolded and was revealed as the story progressed. Will definitely read this one again.

"Lacey’s poignant tale is about betrayal, trust and starting over. Their dilemma-fraught love story is an emotional roller coaster, but worth every remarkable, heart-stopping page" (RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 stars).
