Caine O'Roarke regretted vanishing into thin air and leaving Lexie Hollister asleep in his bed – but he had no choice. The mercenary had been called in for an urgent mission in the middle of the night. He'd miss Lexie, but the former Seal told himself both he and Lexie would get over it. They'd been completely wrong for each other – in all but one way.
Eleven months later, when Lexie's father asks Caine to rescue his daughter from the civil war in San Rafael, he barely recognizes Lexie. The former party girl has grown up, and she's the only nurse in a small village. And she has a child. His child.
Will Caine be able to save the woman he hasn't been able to forget? Will Lexie be able to forgive him for disappearing? And will they be able to survive the jungle and figure out how to create a family?
