Single Dads of Gaynor Beach series
Having spent more than twenty years as an emergency medicine physician in war zones around the world, I barely have a home to speak of. A daughter I didn’t know about has died and left a child behind, so I must get to Gaynor Beach, California to claim my granddaughter. Her temporary guardian is the first man to spark my interest in a very long time, but it would be inappropriate for me to have a relationship with this much-younger man.
Gutted by my best friend’s death, I take solace in the daughter she left in my guardianship. I’ll protect this precious baby with all I have, and no one is going to take her away from me—least of all the man who turns up on our doorstep claiming to be her grandfather. Despite the resemblance, I plan to keep him at arm’s length. I’m going to show him how capable I am. But I might also lose my heart in the process.
This is an 85k word, hurt/comfort, interracial, age-gap, MM romance novel with a moderate amount of angst.Add it to Goodreads
I was having one of those days.
Marilee had been up most of the night running a fever.
Corey at daycare said in no universe was I allowed to bring a sick child in.
Jermaine, the pharmacist, had helpfully suggested something to bring down her fever.
If that hadn’t worked, I considered either calling her pediatrician or taking her to the hospital. Both of those options, however, meant running the risk they’d call Anthony, and in no way was I going to deal with that son of a bitch. If Marilee was in true danger? Of course. A fever of a hundred and one? Nope.
Having helped raise five kids came in handy sometimes. Sometimes I resented being the oldest and the most responsible, but other times I was grateful my mother forced me to learn. I planned on being the best parent to Marilee. I had a great example.
Too bad Mom lived in Los Angeles. Right now, as Marilee screamed her lungs out, I’d do anything for a helping hand.
The sound of car doors slamming penetrated above the baby’s wails.
I strode to the window and peeked through the gap in the drapes. Holding myself as still as possible, I groaned out loud.
