Hawk Donovan was seeking the truth about his mysterious past. And when his search led him to a former fertility clinic, for once the avowed loner had no choice but to ask for help from beautiful Sheryl Eldanis. The desirable vet didn't want the handsome rancher poking around her new office, but Hawk desperately needed access to the old clinic files–and her. Her strength enticed him; her wit seduced him. Hawk knew they could never have a future–unless he could find what he was looking for in the sinister records. But he soon feared it was too late to protect Sheryl. From a broken heart…and from the danger he'd brought to her door.
