Midwife Abbey Wilson lives for her job and her family. After a scarring breakup with her fiance she has stayed well clear of men. But when Dr. Rohan Roberts arrives at the maternity clinic in Gladstone, New South Wales, Abbey becomes aware of a man for the first time in years.
Abbey arouses Rohan's desires and all his protective instincts, though her strong family ties and collection of waifs and strays hold too many painful memories for him. But Abbey is a woman in need herself.
Rohan decides to reassure her that she is the sensuous woman he sees, and discovers his feelings for Abbey are far deeper than he's bargained for. He has two choices -- he can run, or he can stay and find the courage to admit his love for this very special woman. (Blurb)
