Family means everything to Dr. Trent Lockridge. Growing up without a father, he always yearned for a family of his own. One long-ago summer in Ouray, Colorado, he thought he might build a future with beautiful Blakely Daniels. But when he abruptly fled town, he broke her heart and left behind more than memories. Years later, Trent is shocked--and overjoyed--to learn he's a father. He'd like to earn back Blakely's love and trust-- but it won't be easy. And the clock is ticking. He's got only a few weeks to prove that, this time, he's here to stay...forever.
