She gifted him with a daughter
He stunned her with the truth
When Tanner Bridwell discovers he’s a father, he gains some much needed hope. A year ago, Tanner lost his livelihood as a champion bull rider, and—more important—Jewel Saunders, the love of his life. Now this cowboy wants to do right by his family. But first he must reveal a stunning secret that will send Jewel and his beloved daughter either packing…or into his arms forever!

What happens when family loyalty and the truth collide? Well in Tanner Bridwell's case he loses his reputation, job as a bull rider, and the love of his life and unbeknownst to him, his baby girl. Jewel Saunders has come back to town with her baby girl Ava to see about restarting her barrel racing career or becoming a photographer. Either way she hopes not to run into Tanner her ex-fiancé.
I really enjoyed their first meet again after a year, and when Tanner found out he had a baby girl- priceless. Now Tanner begins rethinking his loyalty to his family after a pretty big lie and the fall he took to protect them. Tanner now has something more to live for, if only Jewel would give him another chance. Jewel, however, has had to live with the fallout of that lie while Tanner disappeared. And Jewel is pretty big on truthfulness as anyone should be.
Jewel was sometimes harder on Tanner than she should have been, but I understood why. She really was trying to protect herself and their daughter. I liked how very much Tanner loved his family, but really enough was enough. I wanted him to come clean and deal with the consequences. I think more than anything Jewel was hurt the most about the lie.
This was a sweet second chance romance with a solid history behind these two. I did like watching them fall in love again. This was a nice little holiday read.
