Back Cover Blurb:

A second chance with her son's secret father!
Widow Savannah Caldwell faces the challenge of her life: begging Trent Caldwell—her former fling and late husband's brother—to save the family's ailing music business. That she's still attracted to Trent makes things hard; that Trent is her son's secret father makes things impossible!

Trent is fiercely proud of making his own fortune, despite his controlling father. And he's always believed his brother got the girl who should have been Trent's. Now he'll have the family business, and his brother's widow in the bargain. But will their romantic reunion be waylaid by Savannah's shocking baby secret?

My Review:

Schield had me laughing, cringing, and hoping against hope that the illusive HEA would appear, while also enjoying this fantastic story.  As often as this novel made me swoon or giggle, there were also dome definite tear jerker moments.  I love how Schield shows life how it really is - a little messy, a little scary, but in the long run, rewarding and worth the effort.  Expect the unexpected with this one.

I love how fully Schield develops her characters.  They're all so real & the type of people that you want to get to know better.  Schield has created characters who are infused with emotion.  I really felt for Savannah and the predicament that she was in. I love how she took her share of the blame, even if so many things were beyond her control.  Trent's machismo & compassion balances for a perfectly drool-worthy leading man.  And the chemistry when the pair are together?  Fantastic!  But it was so much more than that.  The real caring and emotion between them really drew me in.

Schield takes billionaire romance and gives it a twist with this one, creating one heck of an unforgettable story.  It's a must read for any and all who enjoy the genre.
