"engaging contemporary romance"
Following the death of his sister from cancer, Trent Kasey
struggles with raising his nephew and niece, twenty-two
month old twins, while also managing his construction
company. When his nephew Kyle vanishes from the house,
Trent gives chase only to see the lad hanging out with his
neighbor Sarah Goldwyne and her dog Nightfire. Sarah helps
Trent with caring for the twins and even watches them while
he goes out on a job prospect. When the biological father
of the twins claims he wants them, Trent's lawyer suggests
he find a wife. He looks toward his neighbor with the
long beautiful legs.
Sarah finds caring for her neighbor's wards quite
satisfying, as she can not have children ever since she
miscarried. As she hangs with the Kasey trio, she falls in
love with all three of them, but fears her heart will break
if the custody goes wrong. Trent holds back out of
dread of losing another loved one.

engages contemporary romance readers due to the two scarred
individuals ably supported by the spaghetti-tossing twins.
The story line focuses more on the love plot buoyed by a
nurturing need, but handicapped by internal demons. Though
the Saving Isaiah like subplot could have been stronger,
readers will attain much pleasure from Lori Soard's
