Jackson Bishop is your typical playboy. Unpredictable, charming, and overly confident.

She's waited years for him to confess his true feelings but as time goes on, she decides she's done waiting. Kiera finally meets a man who promises to give her the world, and when he pops the question, she says yes-knowing they're both ready to settle down and start a family.

John Bishop isn't your typical single dad. Reserved, impatient, and utterly clueless.
Running the family's bed and breakfast has many perks. Working long hours, picking up after the guests, and hearing couples going at it all night long aren't any of them. Hooking up with girls who come to the ranch for horseback riding lessons? Best perk of them all.
That is until a baby shows up at his doorstep with a note claiming it's his. Leaving the bachelor life behind, his only priority is to hire a nanny who can teach him a thing or two about parenting-except he doesn't anticipate her being gorgeous and quirky with an unhealthy football obsession.
Mila Carmichael has many talents-making balloon animals, creating origami art, and remaining in the friend zone. Often seen as one of the guys, she's struck out more times than a rookie baseball player.
Seeking a new adventure, she flies to Texas to visit family and is offered a position she can't refuse. Helping out a new dad should come easy to her, considering her past experience, but what she doesn't anticipate is him being an attractive Southern temptation.
But that's only the beginning.

Hunter's now the one to hold me up when all I want to do is fall. Knowing my religious parents will never accept the pregnancy out of wedlock, Hunter offers to be my fake husband. While I think he's gone crazy, it's the only plan that'll keep them in my life. So I do whatever it takes to make our relationship believable-kissing, touching, even letting him hold me when we sleep. The lines are so blurred neither of us want to admit we're no longer pretending. The guilt of what we're doing eats me alive as I struggle to deal with my emotions. I push him away, but he pulls me closer, showing me how he's always felt. Just as I begin to follow my heart, I learn Hunter's been keeping secrets.

The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized. As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and taunting lips. Resisting her wasn't an option, and we quickly became a desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest sin, but I was no saint. Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting her wasn't a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs. Friends is all we can ever be.

Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away and makes it clear she doesn't need me. I'll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I'm the good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend and I start throwing punches. And it ends when I'm arrested for his murder.
I saw her first. Blonde. Gorgeous. Feisty. I was smitten. But it didn't matter because she chose him, and he was my best friend and roommate. I'd never be able to compete with that, so I pushed her away instead. It was easy when she lived hours away, and I didn't have to see her every day, but then she moved in with us. Now, I'm screwed. To her singing in the shower every morning, dancing in the kitchen while she makes coffee, and doing yoga in our living room, I can't stop thinking about her in all the wrong ways. She's not mine and never will be, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to push her against a wall and claim her mouth. She's constantly on me for making messes, bringing chicks home every weekend, and being a smartass when their PDA gets on my nerves. Considering neither of them knows how I feel, the way I act toward them isn't fair. I should move out so I can get over her for good; however, the selfish part of me can't let go. But then the unthinkable happens... When my best friend dies in a motorcycle accident, the two of us are left to grieve our loss together. Instead of pushing her away, I pull her closer. Just as we come to terms with our new reality, she finds out she's pregnant with his baby. And I'm left to make the hardest decision of my life...
