Publisher Comments:

Were things getting to got to handle. . .?
When Victoria Hamilton's "no strings, no last names" vacation fling resulted in a baby, she knew she had to begin a new life far from her family's corrupting influence. Now her father has been murdered, her half brother, Jared, is the prime suspect and Tori has no choice but to return to Colorado Springs with her young daughter. She'll do anything to prove Jared's innocence. But confronting her past when she opens the door to her new private investigator and comes face-to-face with John "Rocket" Miglionni sure isn't what she had in mind.
Tori isn?t the only one who's in for a surprise. Thrilled at first to find the woman who rocked his world six years ago, the rugged former marine takes one look at her little girl with his dark eyes — and Tori's panicked expression — and gets the shock of his life. In one fell swoop he's found the woman who haunts his dreams and discovered he's a daddy. As tough as they come, John now has two females holding a big piece of his heart, a troubled teenager who expects the worst from the adult males in his life. ..and a second chance to make it right for all of them.

Review:

"A classic plot line receives a fresh, fun treatment in the final book in Andersen's trilogy (Head over Heels; Getting Lucky) featuring hunky former Marine buddies who find love — or rediscover it — in unexpected places. A weeklong, no-last-names romance in Pensacola leaves John Miglionni with the determination to take a hard look at his life, and high-society architect Victoria Hamilton with memories of hot loving and a very real pregnancy. Now, six years later, when Victoria's younger brother, Jared, disappears the night their father is fatally stabbed, Victoria hires a detective from Semper Fi Investigations to track down Jared and prove his innocence — only to discover the PI is her long-ago lover, John. Surprise daddyhood, concern for Jared and an awareness of their disparate backgrounds delay the sexual sparks between John and Victoria, but once the fire starts, there's no putting it out. Still, John and Victoria have to work through their issues of mistrust and uncover who really killed Victoria's father before they can have a future together. John's worries about his ability to be a good father and several likable, well-developed secondary characters add depth to this zesty novel, placing it a level beyond most of its competition. Agent, Meg Ruley. Forecast: This book's electric pink cover, which places heavy emphasis on the word 'Hot,' will stand out on the shelves like a neon sign, beckoning browsers."

Synopsis:
