Caring for a loved one with cancer is tough. Doing it alone is overwhelming—especially when that loved one is a child. But ever since Ken Brighton’s partner left him, Ken has spent his days at the hospital with his daughter, Hanna, hoping for a miracle.
Carter Schunk is a dedicated police officer with a difficult past and a big heart. When he’s called to a domestic disturbance, he finds a fatally injured woman, and a child, Alex, who is in desperate need of care. Child Services is called, and the last man on earth Carter wants to see walks through the door. Carter had a fling with Donald a year ago and found him as cold as ice since it ended.
Donald (Ice) Ickle has had a hard life he shares with no one, and he’s closed his heart to all. It’s partly to keep himself from getting hurt and partly the way he deals with a job he’s good at, because he does what needs to be done without getting emotionally involved. When he meets Carter again, he maintains his usual distance, but Carter gets under his skin, and against his better judgment, Donald lets Carter guilt him into taking Alex when there isn’t other foster care available. Carter even offers to help care for the boy.
Donald has a past he doesn’t want to discuss with anyone, least of all Carter, who has his own past he’d just as soon keep to himself. But it’s Alex’s secrets that could either pull them together or rip them apart—secrets the boy isn’t able to tell them and yet could be the key to happiness for all of them.

Insiration for Growing His Dream
In Growing His Dream, Lachlan finds himself on his own at seventeen after his mother passes away. At first the minister takes him in, but there’s a problem and soon Lachlan finds himself in front of the congregation while the minister explains his predicament and the fact that he needs a home.

Guest: Grace Duncan – Three Hearts Blog Tour
Thank you to Andrew for giving me a chance to post today! I’m excited to share a bit about the playlist for Three Hearts. I don’t always actively listen to music while I’m playing, but I always put one together. I often will have it playing when I’m driving somewhere, researching, or doing anything not actively writing. The title of the book came completely accidentally when I stumbled on a video someone had shared on Facebook. Unfortunately, I can’t remember who that was, but I was very grateful because I had been struggling with a title. So, when I first … Continued
