In the Southern town of Lafayette
Falls, a new life brings together a woman with everything to lose and
a doctor with everything to prove.
When a sickly infant is surrendered at
the Lafayette Falls Medical Center, and orphaned soon after,
pediatrician Aaron Kendall arranges to adopt him. After a painful
divorce, the busy baby doc is about to realize his own dream of
becoming a father when the baby’s beautiful estranged aunt turns
up. She doesn't exactly approve of the Kendall bachelor pad, complete
with Aaron's cranky dad and wacky brother, forcing Aaron to form a
risky alliance with her.
Country singer-songwriter Lia
Montgomery barely knew her half-sister, but she's determined her tiny
nephew goes to a good home. If only she fit the bill herself, but her
stressful life on the road is no place for a baby. Yet despite her
misgivings, as she gets to know Aaron, she realizes the smart and
sexy doctor is everything a child could want in a dad—and more
unsettling, everything she's ever hoped for in a man. After all she's
put him through, is it too late to form a family—and maybe put a
song in the good doctor's heart?

He took a moment to admire her. She wore the pretty white dress
she’d worn that night when they’d met in the hotel restaurant and he
had been determined to send her packing. A lot had changed since
then. Lucky me, he mused as he took the music box out of her hands.
He placed it on the chest of drawers and restarted the song.
As “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” started to play again, he
reached out his hand to her. “May I have this dance?”
For a moment, it appeared her breath halted before she took his
hand. “Yes. Yes,” she repeated as if she had agreed to more than just
a dance.
They settled against one another as they waltzed around the nursery
in small steps, a couple forward and backward since there was little
open space. “We need a bigger room,” he said as they bumped
into the armoire.
“This is fine,” she whispered. She began to softly sing the lyrics
to “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”
He smiled. He loved for her to sing to him, and as she sang about
dreams coming true, he glanced at the picture of himself holding
John Aaron. The baby was a dream come true, and so was the woman
in his arms. He sensed a shift in her as she slid her hand from his and
roped both of her arms around his neck as they swayed to the music.
“We should call it a night,” he murmured.
He shut off the light in the nursery as they headed across the hall
to their bedroom . . .
