Mitch Mingan has chosen to remain a bachelor; he doesn’t want anyone else to suffer his destiny. But when his cousin Ken dies leaving behind twin boys, it is up to Mitch to ensure his nephews are ready for what lies ahead. Inviting Ken’s widow Sarah and the boys up for the summer seems like a perfect start.
For Sarah, a summer up north is the perfect opportunity for her sons to get to know their father’s family. It’s also a chance for Sarah to learn the truth behind why her husband left his childhood home at such an early age. What she doesn’t count on is falling for their handsome host. She also doesn’t count on finding out the family legacy: Mingan means wolf!
Sarah stood to leave. “Mitch, can I ask you a personal question?”
“Shoot,” he replied.
“Have you ever been married?”
“No. I’m what you would call a lone wolf, I guess.”
She shivered as a breeze blew off the bay, across her wet, naked back. “May I ask why?”
He appeared thoughtful as he sipped the cabernet. “My life is too…complicated. A woman would have to put up with a lot around me. I don’t think it would be fair and I’m not sure I’m worth it.”
Nothing since she arrived at the camp caused her to think negatively of Mitch. She could not begin to guess what drove the wedge between the two cousins. The man who invited her up here, played with her sons, cooked a great steak, and was very easy on the eyes, appeared to have a lot to offer. Any woman would be lucky to find such a man to spend her life with. Even one night.
Forbidden territory, Sarah. But she couldn’t help herself. Quickly she got out of the hot tub. She wrapped a towel around her torso and picked her wine glass off the deck.
She opened the door and then stopped, turning around.
“You know, Mitch, I don’t think you give yourself enough credit,” she said before she continued into the cottage.

Thanks Larry. Funny thing is, I'm from the side of Canada that doesn't wear cowboy hats. But it was a selfie, and I thought it turned out pretty darn good.
