Excerpt

Micah wanted to say something, to tell Tess she was beautiful, magnificent, exciting… but when he raised his head, she nuzzled into his neck with closed eyes. He smiled and tucked himself around her. A long shift at the hospital, an emotional admission to him, and a long romp in bed had exhausted her. She had given her all and was sound asleep. He rubbed his thumb over the bluish circles of exhaustion under her eyes.

Tess deserved more than a casual romp of sex. She gave so much of herself to others. She needed someone who would love her, appreciate, and take care of her.

As he lay there beside her, Micah realized his newest venture would be convincing Tessa Foster that he could fit into her heart and her life on a full-time basis.
