Curt Bannerman never thought he'd have to follow through with a promise to ensure his best friend's wife and children were taken care of in the event of Eric's death after the two men retired from the Navy SEALs. But an assassin made the promise a reality. Eighteen months later he's still keeping an eye on the family, however, somewhere along the line his feelings for the pretty widow have changed.
Dana Prichard had been both a mother and a father for her children during her husband's multiple deployments, but once Eric retired, she thought those days were over. Now she has to do it with no chance of him ever coming home again. While his SEAL teammates have been there for her since Eric's death, one of them stands above the rest. The one man who is slowly invading her dreams.
They started as friends, but now, both want more. Can they move past the feelings that they are betraying a dead man by wanting each other? Or is Eric always going to stand between them?
