Pride Donovan returns to her old home in the small Texas Gulf Coast town of Anahuac when her father dies, and somehow she is not surprised when her former lover, Flynn Sutherland, does not recognize her little boy as her child and his, even after spending an afternoon on his sailboat with the child.
When Flynn tries to rekindle her feelings for him, she knows he is about to get the shock of his life, because Flynn firmly believes he is sterile. Instead, Pride finds herself in shock when Flynn accepts his son and researches her own “Single Mommy” newspaper column for hints on how to coax her into marrying him.
Pride thinks she has many good reasons why she shouldn’t marry Flynn, including a childhood spent with a father who claimed she was not his child. She isn’t about to allow such a thing to happen to her son, no matter how strongly Flynn declares he believes her.
Can Pride overcome her hurt and learn to trust Flynn again?
