He was the right man . . . but it was the wrong time.

Another Classic Romance from Barbara Bretton

Diana Travis is the woman behind the wildly popular help column Mother Knows Best. The last few years have been a blur of hard work and no social life, so when her sister Paula offers her a month's free stay in a posh East Hampton beachfront cottage just for babysitting her twin toddler nieces, Diana jumps at the chance to spend July by the ocean.

But it's not all sun, surf, and sand. Diana has a plan for this summer: she's going to lose ten pounds, meet her book deadline, and forget the fact that her ex-husband is about to become a father.

Diana has almost everything she ever wanted but there's one thing missing: she wants a family of her own. And come September, she's going to put her heart and soul into making that dream come true.

And then she runs headlong into Gregory Stewart, the tall dark and handsome veterinarian with the wicked grin and amazing hands, and her well-planned future goes up in smoke when she discovers her fantasy lover is a man with a secret that could change her life forever.

Two rambunctious toddlers. An aging Abyssinian cat. A mouthy mynah bird. The man she'd waited a lifetime to find.

And only 31 days to get it right.
