Therese Beharrie. Montlake, $16.99 trade paper (310p) ISBN 978-1-66251-178-3

This passionate romance from Beharrie (The Ghost in Shining Armor) takes readers to Sugarbush Bay, South Africa. After heiress Delilah Huntington’s mother is arrested for stealing from clients of her successful brokerage, costing the family its fortune, Delilah moves to Sugarbush to live with Matt, her estranged brother and single dad to a teenager. While working as a barista and reconnecting with Matt, she develops a crush on the town’s other new resident: single father Rowan Quinn. A one-night stand landed Rowan with a baby, and he feels entirely unprepared for fatherhood, his fears compounded by his own troubled upbringing. He’s determined to do everything alone—until Delilah offers to babysit and recruits Matt to mentor Rowan on the ups and downs of single fatherhood. Soon, introverted Rowan enlists outgoing Delilah’s help in getting to know the locals. The proximity causes feelings to arise, but can they work through communication issues and past baggage to become a family? The dynamic between the town’s single fathers adds a unique charm as Delilah and Rowan’s romantic push and pull unfolds. Readers will be delighted. Agent: Courtney Miller-Callihan, Handspun Literary.
