Will he pass the daddy test?

With his job in jeopardy, it couldn't be a worse time for Sheriff Nate Landry's recent past to come back to haunt him. But it would take an army to stop SWAT team leader Julie Smith. The fellow cop—and sister of his ex-fiancée—wants one thing from the beleaguered lawman: custody of the toddler son that Nate didn't know he had.

He may not be natural daddy material, but he quickly takes a shine to little Duke. And then there are the feelings Nate's been hiding for years. Only now Julie's running for sheriff of Harmony Valley—against him. Time to retreat? Not if he wants a future with the woman he loves.


An endearing story about forgiveness … of other people, and of yourself! I enjoyed watching the connection between this man who thought he would be no good as a father with the little boy who stole his heart at first glance. It was bittersweet to hear all of the sadness they had all endured, but watching them work through their pain was very rewarding. I was a bit thrown by the way they would instantly be thinking back to the past in the middle of a scene, but overall, I really enjoyed the writing style, the plot and the characters!

Sheriff of Harmony Valley, Nate Landry has an easy-going life as the law in a small town one minute, and the next minute the job that means a lot to him is all of a sudden in jeopardy when the town busy-body wants to make heads roll for things not going the way she wants them to! As if that isn’t upheaval enough, who should suddenly show up in his town but the sister of his former fiance … with a toddler in tow who looks awfully familiar!

Julie Smith is recovering from some work issues herself, and still reeling from the loss of her sister … and the last thing she wants is to be in the company of her former friend Nate Landry. She has hated him for years since he broke her sister’s heart on what would have been their wedding day … and she’s only here for as long as it takes for him to sign over custody of the son he didn’t even know he had!
