One day on his patrol of the lake, Bret stumbles across an overturned boat, with a passed out woman slumped over the side. There is no sign of a wedding band on her hand, but she is very heavily pregnant. Unwilling to risk the townspeople going into one of their crazed frenzies over the woman, Bret takes her back to the little lakeside cottage that he calls home, to nurse her back to health.
The woman, who he has been calling Jane wakes up long enough to give birth to her sweet baby girl, and then passes back out again due to the lump on the back of her head. Bret has his hands full caring for the baby girl, that he lovingly calls Angel, who quickly sneaks into his heart, as well as the woman who has caught his wondering eye. The hardest part is keeping their presence in his home a secret from the single men in town, who are starting to ask questions about why he is suddenly spending so much time at home all alone.
When Jane finally comes to, and Bret thinks he’s finally going to get some answers to his questions, all he gets instead is more questions… The woman can’t remember a thing! The cop in Bret comes out, as he tries to get some answers for Jane. It’s a fight against the clock as his feelings for the woman begin to get out of hand. His only hope now was that baby Angel didn’t have a Daddy out there somewhere who was desperate to have his girls back, because Bret very much wants to keep them all to himself.
What he doesn’t know about his mystery woman’s past could end up hurting them all, if he doesn’t find the answers soon though, because it was no coincidence that she had been out there on the water in that boat, all alone, so close to her delivery date.
