Some sparks last forever.

But once burned…

World traveler Dr. Scott Willingham is known for being calm and levelheaded—except where Volta Morgan is concerned. In the ten years since they parted, Scott still can’t forget her. Now he’s come to Alaska to find Volta and finally let her go, only to find their attraction is stronger than ever. Can Scott leave her behind one last time…or has he truly found a place to call home?

Emma opened her bag and pulled out her pajamas. “Oh, my birdhouse. I forgot to show you.” Emma held up the wooden birdhouse she’d painted a cheery pink with three human figures and an animal along the side. Volta pointed at the smallest figure. “Is this you?”
“And this one with the blue dress is me?”
“Yes, because you like blue.”
“So this one must be Uncle Leith.”
“No, a girl and her mommy and her daddy and her horse.”
“Her horse?”
“Yeah, she had a mommy and a daddy and a horse. They’re a real family.”
 That nagging sense of inadequacy pricked at Volta. “Real families come in all shapes and sizes, Emma. Just because your daddy died doesn’t mean we’re not a real family.”
“Well.” Emma peeked up from beneath her eyelashes. “If I can’t have a daddy, I should at least get a horse.”
“Yes.” Emma tried the puppy-dog eyes.
Volta chuckled. “Nice try, but we’ve talked about this. Horses are very expensive.”
 “Ryan has a horse.”
“Ryan lives on a farm. We live in Anchorage.”
“We could keep the horse in the backyard.”
“Our backyard isn’t big enough for a horse to live.”
“We could move to a farm.”
“No, we couldn’t, Emma, because I’m not a farmer. I’m a paramedic.”
Emma shrugged. “Maybe Grandma and Granddaddy will get a horse for my birthday.”
 Volta shook her head. “No, sweetie, they’re not going to get you a horse. We have no place to keep one. I’m sorry, but that’s how it is.”
Emma frowned. “When I grow up, I’m going to live on a farm and have lots and lots of horses. And my friends can come and ride with me, and I’ll ride the prettiest horse of all.”
 “Sounds like a plan. But right now, it’s bath time.”
