Single dad Emmett Deverell thought moving to Jacobsville, Texas, would mean quality time with his children. Then he realized the truth -- his kids were uncontrollable! He knew the three little rapscallions needed a woman's influence. But the only female available was Melody Cartman ... and Emmett trusted her about as far as he could throw her. Melody's new charges were a force to be reckoned with. But it was their father who proved a handful. That sexy wink of his was enough to send a woman into orbit. She knew Emmett would never forgive her past, which was definitely a problem. Because being part of Emmett's family was a habit Melody didn't want to break.
