Big, sexy men who don't relate well to kids need not apply...

Kezia Murphy plays her widow card well. When you don't trust people not to let you down, it's easier to not get involved-and getting involved with a man who makes her skin sizzle just by looking at him would be una pazzia-crazy! Four years ago while Kezia's daughter, Zoe, battled leukaemia, a tragic accident stole her husband's life. Starting over in the little town of Oban where she's adopted into the close knit community on Stewart Island, Kezia and her daughter are all the family the other needs. Except Zoe yearns for more.

New Zealand's worst candidate for instant fatherhood...

Ben doesn't do gooey emotional stuff. He doesn't do cosy home and family. And he sure isn't the big teddy-bear Kezia Murphy, the woman he secretly fantasises about, thinks he is. So when Jade, his surprise eight-year-old daughter arrives on his doorstep, he's a D-minus student struggling to pass a crash-course in parenting.

They'll either melt or raze their lives to the ground...

When the sparks of attraction between Kezia and Ben fan into an inferno, Ben doesn't know how much longer the layers of resistance around his heart can resist melting into the gooey mess he fears.

The more he fights it the harder it is to make the choice that will destroy the family he now longs to claim.

Everything you want in a contemporary romance-plus enough steaminess to make your toes curl!

It is not a cliffhanger, but I am still wanting! I did not have anything to do, so my time wasn't wasted, but I found the stressors to make the story, contrived. I would have to read the story again to remember anything. It never really drew me in.... but I had nothing else to do.

I find nothing romantic or sexy about an emotionally stunted man who 'bangs anything that moves'. Nor do I appreciate authors who deride 'good Catholic girls'. I cut my losses and decided not to finish reading this book.

Just like all of Trace Alvarez' books. LOVE her writing, love her characters. I want Tracey Alvarez to be my personal writing mentor so I can write as well as she does.

I was surprised by how much i liked this book. It was about 250 pages which was amazing because most of the free books are only like 60 pages if youre lucky.The chemistry Kezia and Ben was amazing. I liked both characters and you see Ben grow as a father which was nice. The only reason i didnt give this 5 stars is because Zades mother seemed unreal. Her actions and the way she acted towards her child just made me mad and it didnt seem realistic. Other than that the story is great. This is a steal to get a book like this free!

I enjoyed this book very much... Ben was a confirmed bachelor until a one night stand dropped an 8 year old daughter on his doorstep... Kezia was a local school teacher who married the wrong man who was later killed in a car crash... She too had an 8 year old daughter... While sometimes predictable there are enough twists and turns to keep you interested.. A short book 120+ pages it is still a complete story and well worth the time to read... Cute in places, funny in places and a life lesson in a lot of places...

Oh man did Ben have a bomb dropped on him when a one-night (one weekend?) stand showed up at his door with his 8 year old daughter. Who he never knew he had. It was great to watch him figure out how to be an good dad, especially with Kezia's help. Not easy starting relationships with a new daughter and a reluctant widow at the same time, but Ben did it! Loved the book!

Interesting characters and love the setting. Looking forward to reading all the Due South books. Great way to escape the everyday.

A fantastic, funny, sexy read. This book is hilarious, Ben is a sexy, single guy who is suddenly thrust into fatherhood when Jade, a daughter he didn’t know existed, is dropped on his doorstep. He makes all the ‘new parent’ mistakes which are compounded by the fact that Jade is older and he is a single parent who is floundering and finally in desperation he seeks help from Kezia. Kez is an amazing, strong, loving single mother, a widow and teacher, who has recently moved to Oban. Both Kezia and her daughter Zoe are feisty, opinionated, outspoken and completely frustrated with the ridiculous mistakes that Ben makes with Jade. Ben and Kezia are ‘helped’ along throughout their bumpy journey by the very mischievous Jade and Zoe, together with the ever present Glenna and Mrs Taylor the islands ‘chief matchmakers’ This is a sweet, although frustrating love story, I even had to break out the tissues at one point, I loved every page of this book – even when I wanted to beat sense into Ben for being dense! A definite must read.
