He never thought he’d see her again!

After being reported missing, presumed dead, globe-hopping photojournalist Mitch Simmons never thought he’d see his estranged wife, Zoe, again. Yet here he is back in their coastal Florida town, where Zoe is mayor. Turns out she isn’t the only one he left behind.

Discovering he has a baby son awakens thrilling new emotions in Mitch. And there are his still-powerful feelings for the high school sweetheart he vowed to love and honor forever. Thankfully, they’ll have the chance to find the love that was always there…

Zoe stood beside a crib. From across the room, he could see her leaning over. Attending to the 
baby? She looked at him, the fierce love etched on her face stopping him from moving. He’d 
always thought Zoe was pretty, but now, she took his breath away. Becoming a mother had 
transformed her. She was no longer just his high school sweetheart. Before him stood a 
full-grown woman, a mother, who had become more beautiful in the time he’d been away.
“Come see your son.”
Leaning on the cane, he made his legs move forward. When he came to the side of the crib, he 
gazed down at the sleeping boy, who had one thumb brushed up against his lips. Mitch’s breath 
caught and completely left him for a moment.
Zoe moved to give him better access. He stepped closer. Leo’s chest rose as he inhaled and 
exhaled. Mitch stared, then began taking inventory, like he imagined a father would upon the 
delivery of his child. Ten fingers and toes. Light colored hair, standing on end. Chunky little 
legs. Rosy skin. Spiky eyelashes caressing his cheek.
A longing, unlike any he’d ever experienced before in his life, pummeled him. This was his 
son. His flesh and blood. A miracle.
“He’s so small.”
Mitch tilted his head to get a different view. “What color are his eyes?”
He swallowed against the sudden thickness in his throat.
With halting fingers, he reached out. He barely touched his son’s arm, so soft and plump, then 
moved to Leo’s face where the tips of his fingers brushed his cheek. When Leo shifted in his 
sleep, Mitch jerked his hand back to his side.
“He’s okay,” Zoe said in a low tone. “Just resettling.”
Right. People moved in their sleep. Even babies.
She gently pushed Leo’s thumb from the proximity of his mouth. “He never took to a pacifier, 
so I have to keep his thumb away from his mouth.”
Mitch didn’t know what to say. Taking care of a baby was completely foreign to him.
“I’ll give you a few minutes.” She pointed to a white radio-looking thing on the dresser. 
“The monitor is on. Call if you need anything.”
As she walked away, Mitch gazed down at his son. His chest swelled. Was this what pride 
felt like?
“Hey, buddy,” he whispered.
