Austin Sitting at the top of my game, pitching for Baltimore and being a single daddy to the most adorable little girl in the world, I’m living the dream. But then I get a dreaded call saying that Everly is sick. My entire world stops when the doctors say the only chance my baby has is a bone-marrow transplant. My life becomes a living nightmare as I wage war to save my daughter. Nothing else matters—not my Cy Young Award, not my career, not my team, and not my talent. None of that can fix her. She needs a miracle. What we get is a stranger... and Maria just might save us both. Maria My life in Miami might not be glamorous, but it is rewarding. I divide my time between working as a nurse at a free clinic and waitressing at my family’s Cuban-Italian restaurant. After being cheated on by my long-time boyfriend, I’m not exactly looking for Mr. Right... but I wouldn’t kick him out of bed if he suddenly showed up. Six months after I donated bone marrow to a little girl in Baltimore, I get an email from the child’s grateful father, but everything is anonymous until the one-year mark. I’m desperate to know more about him. The last thing I expect him to be is a gorgeous famous ballplayer. One email becomes another until we find ourselves caught up in a friendship neither of us expected but we both desperately need. Suddenly, I’m falling in love with a man I’ve never met.
