She didn't know what to expect when she confronted millionaire Ben Adams. It certainly wasn't his demand that she live with him in his sprawling mansion until the baby came. Or the ache to have that unforgettable night last a lifetime....

Her husband, Porter, knows he's made mistakes. Now he'll do whatever it takes to rebuild the family he nearly lost—even keep their near-divorce from his wife. This Christmas he'll convince Alaina to stay. But will a secret she's kept for years resurface and put them to the ultimate test?
