Six years ago, Kate Cassidy broke Rafe Casella's heart by abandoning him a few months before their wedding. Now she's in town with the gut-wrenching news that she had his baby, in secret, and she wants Rafe back. She has to be kidding!

But Kate is deadly serious. She made the worst mistake of her life when she left Hidden Cove and she's determined to fix it. She plans to reinstate herself in the fire department and raise her son in a loving family—one that includes his father.

A rollercoaster of emotion, devastating fires, a stalker targeting Kate and a sizzling attraction that never diminished, set the two of them on an irrevocable course to reunion. That is if they can all stay alive.

If you liked the face-paced events, breathtaking tenderness, uplifting messages of forgiveness, as well as on-the-edge-of-your-seat fire scenes, all characteristic of the Hidden Cove Fire Department Series, then you'll love New York Times bestselling author Kathryn Shay's ninth installment.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Starting this book was like running into an old friend. I enjoyed the earlier books about the firefighting community and loved catching up with the families and children as they grew and changed. This story of a woman who let her fear cause her to run instead of telling the man she loved that she was pregnant with his child. When she realizes the fear wasn’t valid, she returns to introduce her son to his father. But how can he, or his family ever trust her again - and how can she overcome her fears and keep from running again? I wish Kathryn had explored the characters more deeply - brought a less superficial approach to their thoughts and feelings. To me the ending was forced and seemed as if there should have been more explanation. It was as if she decided she had reached the book length and just tied a few knots.

It had been a while since I had read a story in this series, and once again, the author managed to give the reader a thought provoking story. We are back in Hidden Cove and this time the story belongs to Captain Rafe Casella and Kate Cassidy. Six years ago they had a relationship and were about to get married when Kate’s past and fears had her run away from the man she loved. A man she left heartbroken and no longer trusting love. She has returned determined to win him back , but she’s not alone. A little boy, Rafe’s little boy, is with her. Yes, it’s a story about second chances and trusting again, but it’s more than that. It’s a story about how our childhood and past experiences affects and molds our present. About the fact that the foster homes still need to be made safe not just for a few, but for all children. It’s a story about family, forgiveness, and learning to trust again. On the workforce, it’s also a story about the new terrorism threats our society encounters as well as the pros and cons of consolidating public services, in this case, fire departments. Lastly, the author did what she does best, she gave us characters that are imperfect facing what many of us fact on a daily basis. That in itself makes them perfect. In the end we get another thought provoking and engaging story worth your time. I was entrusted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

I couldn't finish because of my dislike of Kate.
