Thaddeus Law is a cynical police detective hell-bent on finding the man who tried to kill Joe Colton. When Joe asks Thad to help him make his home safe for him and his family, Thad agrees. What Thad did not count on was meeting Joe's `niece' Heather McGrath. Heather is staying at the Colton's so that she can help Joe get caught up on his company's business. Thad had no intention of getting involved with a rich, spoiled, pampered heiress. Thad's ex-wife proved that the only woman in his life would be his precious two year old daughter.
Heather did not plan to get involved with Thad, but she somehow found herself not only involved with him but also with his daughter. As time went by, both Thad and Brittany found a place in her heart. Now all Heather has to do is convince Thad to give them a chance.
Thad and Heather were the main characters in this story. Although, there was the mention of the other characters that have flowed through the rest of the books in the Colton series. Meredith gets extremely antsy with Thad around the house all the time. Silas gets closer to finding out where Emily is hiding. Finally, Louise gets closer to remembering the truth about the accident. Although the story of Thad and Heather could stand alone, I recommend that you read the previous books in the serious first. Otherwise the secondary characters would not seem as important as they would if you had read the other books.
