Widowed firefighter Mitch Donovan isn't looking for a replacement wife. He's concentrating on working hard. Making a stable home for his little girl. Then along comes Rory Borland. His daughter's teacher is an unpredictable free spirit who challenges his ideas about fatherhood and makes him think about things he didn't even know he wanted. Like her.
Rory loves kids--that's why the job teaching at an inner-city San Francisco school is her dream come true. But the last thing on her mind is a family of her own when she meets her young student's hunky dad. She's his daughter's teacher, not a stand-in mother. So what are they to do about the smoldering attraction between them?
Will they both realize that what they want is within their grasp...before it bursts into flames?
