Annabelle: Pregnant, alone and a college dropout. Could my life suck any worse than it already does? Sure can. Because I now have to move back home and in with my mother. The woman who doesn’t even want me to call her mom. It cramps her husband-hunting. My bad luck continues when I go to sleep and wake to a fire. Bracing for the worst, I’m shocked when a firefighter busts inside to save me. I don’t even know what he looks like through all the gear. But I know that I like his touch. He makes me feel safe. And lights a fire inside my body that may burn this town down. I’m shocked when he starts showing up at the hospital and then tells me that he loves me. He fell in love at first sight. No freaking way! He’s huge and hot. And I’m a pregnant, pale, overly-curvy woman. That only happens in books right? It gets even weirder when, of course my mother tries to stake her claiim on him. Even when he makes it plain he’s not interested. And when he takes me home with home? Hell hath no fury like a mom looking for husband number three. Stone: I’ve put myself in plenty of dangerous situations and never been as thrown as I was when I pulled Annabelle from that fire. One touch and I couldn’t forget her. One sigh from her pretty lips and I was a goner. I need her to be mine. And then there’s Annabeth. Dangerous, unpredictable and the most annoying woman I’ve ever met. Did I think she’d ever try to start trouble for her own daughter to get rid of the competition? NO! But Annabeth is even worse than I think. Than anyone thinks. But there’s no one as dangerous as me when she screws with the love of my life and the child that I’ll claim as my own. She’s crossed the wrong freaking man. I take care of mine.
