A lot can happen in twenty-four hours …
Welcome to Seattle, the Emerald City and home to The Single Dads of Seattle. Ten sexy single fathers who play poker every Saturday night, have each other’s backs, love their children without quarter, and hope to one day find love again.
This is Emmett’s story …
Single dad of Seattle, Dr. Emmett Strong doesn’t believe in soulmates. Not since his ex-wife blindsided him with divorce papers, breaking not just his heart, but his daughter’s, as well. Eighteen months later, it’s just the two of them and he intends to keep it that way. He won’t hurt Josie again by bringing another woman into her life. However, fate has other plans and on New Year’s Eve, sparks instantly fly when he bumps into the intriguing and beautiful Zara.
Single mom and flower shop owner, Zara Olsen, has no time—or patience—for wishy-washy men who can’t commit., so she’s definitely not going to fall for the unavailable doctor. But when Emmett keeps getting thrown into her path, and the two wind up at the same New Year’s Eve party, she wonders if fate is trying to tell her he’s not so unavailable after all. He’s funny and kind, the chemistry between them is sizzling and it’s almost midnight. It must be time for a kiss. But when she finally gives in to their attraction, she begins to regret it when Emmett starts acting strange.
Can Emmett set aside the past and reach for the bright future he could have with Zara, or will this New Year’s with the Single Dad end up being one Zara will remember, but would rather forget?

He lifted his head. “Something funny?”
She snorted again. “I just realized you’re Dr. Strong.”
“That I am.”
“Do you moonlight as an astronaut? Are you Astronaut Dr. Strong? Because I honestly don’t know what else you could do or be to make yourself any more …”
He lifted one dark eyebrow which seemed to also pull at the same corner of his mouth. “Any more …”
She lifted then flopped her free hand down to the exam table. “I dunno … appealing? Handsome? A catch?”
Was she coming on to strong?
Too freaking bad.
Zara had never been shy a day in her life, nor was she the type to beat around the bush and not say what she was thinking.
She found the man attractive, there was no reason why she couldn’t say that. Right?
The other corner of his mouth lifted as well. “I like your candor … but I can attest that not every woman thinks I’m appealing or a catch.”
Then those women are crazy.
She kept that thought to herself. There was speaking your mind, and then there was coming on too strong. She was known for doing both.
