After the birth of her son, Annie should have been on cloud nine. But, news that Jayden had been drugged and had a seizure rocked her happiness. She’s torn between not wanting to miss a single moment with her son and spending time with Jayden in ICU.

Jonah is helping Annie take care of Josh while his brother is in the hospital. He’s so overwhelmed with things going on in his life, things he doesn’t want anyone to know. But, Annie is getting more and more suspicious of his vagueness of his love life. All he can hope for is to keep it quiet until things with Jayden are better.

Jayden was out enjoying a night with his friends when the unthinkable happened to him. After Jonah found him, he doesn’t remember anything. He can hear voices throughout his mind, but only one sticks out. He’s fighting like hell to get back to that voice.

When Jayden wakes up, will him and Annie be able to work towards their happily ever after? Or will things fall apart like they always do for Annie?

I make it to the bed, get turned around, and plop backwards. Once I’m settled, I hold my arms out towards Annie. She gets up and places him in my arms. I’ve not held very many babies, but it’s like I knew what to do. He felt so right in my arms. It’s like having him there finally makes something click together for me. In this moment, I know that I am supposed to be here, with my son in my arms and my family surrounding me.

No one is talking. They are giving me time to soak this all up.

He is fast asleep, without a care in the world. His head is full of thick dark brown hair that’s sticking up in every direction. I pick up his tiny little hand, wedge one finger into his grasp and he automatically clenches around my finger. There is no other feeling in the world that will ever compare to this moment. I never knew my heart could hold so much love for one person.

This is my son. This is my flesh and blood. This little boy needs me. I put him up on my shoulder and hold him to me. I break down sobbing in front of everyone. It has been years since I’ve broken down like this. I cry because no matter what I do, I always fuck something up. There is no more time for me to get my shit together. This is it. I savor the feeling of him on my shoulder, not even caring his dad is crying.

“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is
then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all
be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”


-Albert Schweitzer


For Dr. Katy Garrity, life is a whirlwind, and the New York Fire Department is the heart of the storm. After claiming so many people she loved, including her own husband, Katy is left adrift, trying to keep up with a busy career, a baby son, and her loving extended family. Her only anchor is Jesse O’Neil, her late husband’s best friend. The charming former playboy has put his entire life on hold to care for Katy and her son. It’s inevitable that sparks will flare between them, but all of life seems to be conspiring to keep them apart. Especially Katy’s own heart, which shies away from trusting another firefighter. Will the flames of passion burst into a lifetime of love? Or will secrets burn away their connection, causing Dr. Garrity to be burned again?





Riding back to the house after dinner, Jesse’s hand rested high on her leg. He rubbed it back and forth making Katy excited about what was in store for them when they got home. Jesse nodded toward her without taking his eyes off the road. “I really like that dress.”

She spread her legs slightly as his hand moved inside her thigh. “I’ll be sure to wear it again for you.”

Jesse pushed her legs further apart. “I’d like that,” he said and grinned, “but I think I’d like it off you better.” He pulled her left leg onto the bench seat, her dress riding the rest of the way up her legs gathering around her hips. They were at a stoplight. Jesse glanced over and grinned. “No panties? What were you expecting tonight?”

She smirked and raised her eyebrow. “Probably the same as you.”

He ran his index finger between her legs lightly. She closed her eyes and leaned her head against the cool glass. He moved his finger parting her. Her heart beat faster and she bit her lip. He slid one finger inside and pulled it out.

He smiled as the light turned green. “Already wet, huh?”

She nodded and breathlessly mumbled, “You have that effect on me.”

He continued driving as he put his finger back inside her moving it slowly in and out. He started rubbing his thumb against her as his finger worked. She slowly moved her hips against his hand. He glanced over as he drove, watching her get excited by his handiwork. He slipped another finger inside her. She gasped as he did and he grinned happily. He debated between continuing with his hand or pulling over to give her the real deal.

She grabbed his hand, but not to stop him. Her breathing was rapid and he knew she’d be finished before he found a place to stop. He picked up the pace, moving his fingers faster. He knew she was on the verge. She was so close when her pager went off and she reached for her purse.

“No, no, baby. Let it go,” he begged her.

She shook her head, opening her purse and pulling out her pager. His hands still working fast, desperate to get her off. She read the number and started to sit up. He tried to stop her, but she pushed his hand out.

“Take me to the hospital, Charley’s on her way.”

Jesse sighed and pulled a quick U-turn. She leaned over and kissed his cheek. “Rain check?”

He nodded, as though he had a choice. This was his payback for keeping his secret from her. He hoped one day soon, he’d be able to tell her.
