Life hasn't been easy for Kate Foley since her sister died seven years ago, leaving behind an infant son. But adopting and raising Ben with her widowed mother has brought joy, and with the family horse stable turning a profit at last, she feels content. Until the day a stranger strides up the path to High Meadow, a star athlete with a drop-dead gorgeous smile who claims to be Ben's father.
When tests prove Daniel Montero's paternity, Kate is ready to fight to keep her son, to risk everything she has against the baseball pitcher and his multimillion-dollar contracts. Yet Daniel wants to share Ben's life, not take him away from it. Soon he challenges all of Kate's assumptions--about men, about being a woman--and he dares her to taste passion for the very first time ... to believe in his promise of love.
