Released under the publisher's multi-author mini-series - “9 Months Later” Ivy Parker is a woman who can't stop crusading. Now she's trying to save a dusty Texas town. She's also a woman who can't stop rescuing lost souls — like Linc Garner, the impoverished carpenter who shows up one day at the café she runs. Linc and Ivy fall in love, but one thing is clear. Unless he can find some way to fulfill his family obligations, he'll lose the woman he wants. He may anyway, once she finds out what he's really doing in Palo Verde — and who he really is. But losing her will be twice as hard, because she's carrying his child!
