This is a story of friendship, love, family, and acceptance. A friendship that has withstood the test of time and has only gotten stronger. A family learning to get along and understand one another. A love uniting and becoming one.
Alexis “Lexi” Bertand’s life could not be more perfect. And then the unbelievable, or more importantly, the unacceptable happened. Lexi learned that her husband had been having an affair. After discovering her husband's infidelity, a barrage of emotions attacked her. Anger, disgust, and sadness struck her crumbling ego.
To make matters worse, Lexi’s family could not understand why she would divorce such a wonderful husband. But, then again, the ‘D’ word was not in her mother's vocabulary. Her mother believed a husband’s ‘tiny’ indiscretions should be forgiven, and a divorce should never be considered.
However, Lexi was not as forgiving as her mother. She refused to stay with a man who did not love her.
Lexi had been so upset over everything that happened with Bennett, she never realized that her monthly ‘friend’ was MIA – missing in action. That one realization shook her very being. Still reeling from the impending divorce, Lexi was unsure how to tell her family and friends about the unexpected pregnancy.
With Lexi’s life in such turmoil, she found herself turning to best friend Kyle for emotional support. As Lexi and Kyle rekindled the friendship they once had, Kyle found himself falling in love with Lexi. But there were obstacles in his way. Could he raise another man's child? And this wasn’t any man, this was a man that he had called his best friend for years. And then there was Lexi, a woman who has built a wall around her heart. A wall that seemed to be impenetrable.
As the months passed and Lexi's due date grew nearer, family bonds were repaired. But Lexi kept her heart protected, fearing it would be difficult to forgive Bennett for his betrayal and unsure if she could ever trust another man.
Would Kyle’s love be enough to mend her broken heart? Would the stress of the divorce endanger her unexpected pregnancy?

On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shy, pretty, and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.
A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter . . . and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.
Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He's wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters . . . and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.
