Maya McCombs thought she had her life planned out—decent guy, a baby on the way and a solid job. That is until her plans blew up. Being single and pregnant isn’t high on her list, but she’s got to survive. No one said surviving meant she’d have to do it alone.
Master Sergeant Levi Court had big plans, too. He followed the woman he loved to a new state and a whole new set of circumstances. Too bad she isn’t interested in keeping the relationship going. On a whim, he heads to the Dinner Plate Diner. Maya is all he’s ever wanted in a woman.
Can he prove to her that two hearts, no matter how broken, can be stronger together?

Here’s the Tuesday Teaser…on Thursday!
The waitress stood at the display case, her dyed blonde hair twisted on top of her head. He’d always had a thing for blondes, but her smile got to him. Should he be looking so soon after a break up? Probably not, but convention in his love life hadn’t served him for shit up to this point. He thought about what he’d said to her. I’ve never been here before. Hope it’s good. Christ. He’d heard better pickup lines from sailors.
When the waitress brought his drink, she plopped down opposite him. “You’re my only table.” She folded her hands. “What brings you to Ontario?”
“The Guard. I work air traffic control over there at the base.” He removed the paper from the straw and dunked the straw into his drink. “I’ve been there for six months, but this is the first time I’ve ventured over to Ontario. I usually work nights and don’t have time to explore.”
“I’m glad you did.” A bell dinged, grabbing her attention. “Your food is ready.” She strolled away from him and he couldn’t help but gaze at her ass. Enough for a man to grab, while still being toned. Did she work out other than what she did at the diner? He could sure use a workout partner.
He choked on his soda. A workout partner. Geez. If she went for any of his unintended lines, he’d be shocked. Amanda just saw the suit. She’d wanted a flyboy. What did this woman want?
The waitress returned with his food and the scent of hot chips wafted around him. His stomach growled and his mouth watered. When she placed the plate in front of him, he damned near drooled. The sandwich was huge and when he glanced over, he got a perfect view of her jean-clad crotch. He shouldn’t be looking at her like she was the sandwich, shouldn’t be ogling her and wondering what her skin felt like. Maybe he’d been lonely for too long.
“My name is Maya.” She sat down opposite him again. “I’ve been in this town all my life. My former high school is about three miles north of here, and my grandparents are buried south of town in the main cemetery. It’s not thrilling here by a long shot.” She averted her gaze. “I shouldn’t have told you all that. I’m sure you didn’t want to know.”
“I like it.” He picked up the sandwich. “Other than the guys I work with, I don’t have too many people around here I know. I’m honored to make your acquaintance.”
She dipped her head, but he could’ve sworn she blushed first.
“Maya, I’m Levi, like the jeans.” He offered his hand. “It’s nice to meet you.”
“Nice to meet you, too.” She gasped his hand, not hard, but firm. “You’ve been with the Guard a long time, I assume?”
