The Father He Deserves | Excerpt + Giveaway

JustRead Publicity Tours


A determined dad. A wary mother. Making amends is never easy…

Injured in a kayaking accident, champion Evan Holland returns home to train rescue dogs. But his unexpected partner is the woman he left behind, Natalie Bishop. And she has a secret: a son Evan never knew he had. Now Evan must prove he can be a real father. But earning Natalie’s trust back will take hope, forgiveness—and risking everything on forever…

Publisher: Love Inspired
Release Date: June 29, 2021


“I got it!” Aidan cried. “You and Dad can get married.

“Then we can all move into the new house when it’s put together. Like a family.”

Natalie’s gaze drifted across the road. “I wish it could be that simple, A, but it’s not.”


Natalie shot Evan a pleading look.

“Hey, buddy. Sometimes moms and dads live together and sometimes they don’t. Even though we don’t live together, that doesn’t change how we feel about you.”

“But I want us to be a family with one house, not two.”

Truth be told, at one time, Evan had wanted the same thing.
