Life will never be the same for Lisa Clarke. But that’s not all bad. Becoming a parent overnight brings Mason Stephens back into her life, giving them a second chance at life.
“My sister has a daughter, a little girl named Katie.”

Given that Lisa had babysat only once in her entire life – an upsetting experience as he recalled – he doubted she’d be willing to have much to do with the child. “I assume you plan to meet Katie,” he said.
Lisa looked him straight in the eye, making it impossible for him to miss the hope in her expression. “No, it’s a lot more than that. Katie needs me. I’m bringing her home. I can’t abandon my niece.” The glint of determination in her eyes told him she’d made up her mind.
