Tiffany Lawson promised herself that she would never, ever give her heart to a man again. Now she's a pregnant former rodeo queen and ex-debutante struggling to support her mother and grandmother. She's already picked out the perfect adoptive parents, but cowboy Navy SEAL Rowdy Jones isn't letting anyone take his child.

Rowdy loves the rush that comes from being a Navy SEAL, but finding out he's about to become a dad? That trumps everything. While he and Tiffany shared only one night, Rowdy's determined to do right by her and their baby. His next mission—to win Tiffany and keep his son—might be his toughest yet…

An interesting plot centering around a subject that isn’t touched on too much in romance novels … whether to give your baby up for adoption or not.  I was happy with the ending, and I liked the characters most of the time, but I did find myself wanting more.  More chemistry and connection to help them agree on their future, and less dragging it out and changing each others minds time and again.

Tiffany Lawson hasn’t been having things easy lately.  She swore off men after being let down by the ones in her life previously, so how did she now find herself pregnant by a one-night stand cowboy when all she should be doing is making ends meet to support her mom and grandma?  She doesn’t have a lot of options with what the immediate future holds, so she has found the perfect family to adopt her son.

Navy SEAL Rowdy Jones didn’t expect to find a message telling him he was going to be a daddy when he got back from his latest deployment!  He’s footloose and fancy free and loves his thrill seeking job, but when he hears her say the words that she’s giving his son to someone else, he jumps into action.  He’s determined to do right by Tiffany and their baby, but will her valid points about their future have him second guessing himself and what’s right?
