See My Review Below!!!
In New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello’s sexy and emotional romance, a billionaire dares to invest in the riskiest proposition of his life: a second chance at love.
Single mom Heather Ellis would do anything for her adopted daughter, Ava. Even post an online reward for anyone who found the girl’s lost stuffed animal. Who’d have guessed it’d be returned by a drop-dead-sexy man with such sadness in his eyes that she had to reach out to him? To Ava, he’s a hero. To Heather, he’s a fantasy that puts at risk the happy life she’s made for herself.
It’s been five years since billionaire developer Sebastian Romano lost his wife and unborn child in a tragic accident. Now he’s all business. No room for emotion. Until he stumbles across that damn stuffed wolf and the beautiful single mother looking for it. Is he ready to give love a second chance?
But there’s more to Sebastian, his family, and his past than Heather knows. More than even Sebastian knows. Will the life they’re building together be challenged when the truth is finally revealed?
Ruth Cardello hit the New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers Lists for the first time back in 2012. Millions of sales are evidence that her books are akin to potato chips, addictive from the first one. She has created a multi-series billionaire world with a combination of escapism and realism that has gained her a faithful following of readers.
Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York–then came full circle and moved back to New England. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.
She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she’s not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm or connecting with her readers online.

Yes, yes, yes! Another new to me author! A new person to stalk!
This is the first book by this author that I have read and I am going to be looking for more!
This story of Sebastian and Heather is fantastic!
A lost stuffed animal and destiny at it’s finest. This story is heartbreaking, it’s hopeful and with a dash of humor, it’s going to give you all the feels!
I loved the bit of mystery with the alternate POV’s, it’s making me crave more from this series.
Heather is smart, independent and a bit quirky, just what I like in a heroine. She is a single mom and she takes her job very seriously. I admired how she spoke her mind, and wouldn’t put up with any bad behavior from Sebastian.
Sebastian is a scarred fella. He has been dealt with heartbreak of an unimaginable level and has tried to make his way forward the best way he can. His family is trying to help him, but he needs the love of a good woman.
The mystery is intriguing and kept me guessing, I can’t wait to find out more clues in the next stories in this series.
Now I can honestly say this can be read as a standalone because I have never read Ms. Cardello’s stories before and this story grabbed me from the get-go and didn’t let me go until the end and I want more!
