Hilton Burke might be one of the most powerful men in the world, but he can’t seem to get what he wants the most. Every time he sees Cathal McKinley, his head of security, Hilton can’t help wishing they could be more than just employer and employee. He even admits to himself that he just might be in love with Cathal, even though they’ve never even slept together.

Cathal McKinley accepts how much he wants his boss, Hilton Burke, but he’s pretty sure there’s no way Hilton will want to date him. They come from two different worlds. And now, having to return to Sunburst, Montana, to deal with family problems, Cathal knows there’s no chance for the two of them to get together.

Hilton and Cathal have spent years dancing around each other, but when Cathal needs help, Hilton comes to Montana to back him up. Soon, they’re dealing with children and an old friend who can’t take “no” for an answer. And finally admitting their love turns out to be the least of their worries…

Leisa’s View:

Hilton is a fabulously wealthy businessman for whom his head of security, Cathal, is a hunky temptation. Cathal is also tempted by Hilton, but they have both kept their relationship strictly professional, even with the constant undercurrent of sexual attraction flowing between them. Everything suddenly changes when Cathal gets bad news from home and must return to deal with his crumbling family in Montana. Hilton shows up to help Cathal when he most needs his support.

Hilton and Cathal are two good men, and they just “fit” together as a couple. Hilton supports Cathal as he takes on caring for his sister’s four children, and Cathal at last sees Hilton as more than a slightly spoiled rich man. Their affection for each other is sincere, and they both fall hard for the children, who are bright and precocious. They begin a love affair that honestly has more of a comforting feel to it, rather than lots of sexual heat, but their love is real and steadfast as Hilton and Cathal together face loss and outside threats to their new family’s happiness.

This is a lovely story of two men who care for each other, but don’t take a final leap toward a relationship until adversity strikes. The characters of Hilton and Cathal are they type of guys you’d want your kids to marry – reliable, honest, and caring. The children characters are great – basically realistic and cute without being sugary sweet. I particularly enjoy how Hilton and Cathal quickly fall into the role of parents to these children who desperately need stability and care, and they are willing to sacrifice for their new family.

The threats to their family are perhaps too quickly and easily resolved, but Hilton and Cathal live happily ever after with their brood of adorable children. This is a “feel good”, heartwarming read that leaves the reader smiling.
