Someone wants Mississippi prosecutor Ashlynn Morris dead and they have taken her son to get to her. The only person she can trust to get him back is his father, a man who doesn't even know about their secret child. When grief and survivor guilt pushed army ranger Garrett Lewis to run out on their wedding five years ago, he knew he was leaving the love of his life. But a son? Finding out he is a father has him reeling, especially since his little boy is missing. But now the tormented ex-soldier has a new mission, one that can't fail. Protect the woman he has never stopped loving and bring her son--their son--home for Christmas.
