Solomon McGuire knows all about loss. He'd married the perfect woman and created the perfect family but 5 years ago he came home from a gruelling mission to find his wife had taken his beloved son, Silas, and disappeared. Since then, he's spent all his money and time searching for his son but when Silas is miraculously found and brought to him, Solomon realizes that he and his boy are strangers. Determined to remedy that, he's desperate for help.... After her divorce, Jordan lost everything that was important to her but she finally found someone who gave her life meaning: an orphan named Miguel. Determined to adopt him and create the family she's longed for, she was horrified - and furious - when Navy SEAL Solomon McGuire ripped Miguel from her arms and forced her to leave him behind. So, when he comes asking for her help with his own son, she scorns him...until she sees Silas. Unable to turn her back on a child in need, she finds herself reluctantly aiding the one man she vowed to hate. Soon she sees the man she villified has a softer side and a heart she soon can't live without. But can these two hearts trust themselves enough to let go and find love?
