When trauma shapes your life, how do you risk making a change—and finding love?
As a child, Sunny Gibson was abandoned by her mentally-ill mother, who left no trace behind. Now a social worker, Sunny is dedicated to helping children find loving homes—though she's still haunted by the past. So when she finds clues that her newest charge might be her younger sister, she sets out to track down the little girl’s mother. But the powerful attorney she needs for the search is proving as inexplicable and distant as he is irresistible . . .
From pro football player to high-powered lawyer, Julian King has succeeded at everything he’s aspired to. But he still needs to make partner. Not only does he know nothing about family law, Sunny can’t even pay him. If only her irrepressible caring and sweetness wasn't drawing him much too close—or making him hunger to keep her in his life. And as wrenching remembered pain on both sides threatens to shatter the delicate trust he and Sunny begin to forge, they will need more than courage to face down their pasts—and seize forever together.
