Maya Goodwin doesn't believe in holding back. Ever. As a cop, she never hesitated to throw herself into harm's way to save someone. Even after an injury on the job forces her to retire, she's not afraid to keep risking it all to get the life she wants. With a new career teaching martial arts to kids already underway, she's looking forward to the future - and taking a chance on the unbelievably hot Dr. Alex Nolan.
Maya - daring and spontaneous - is the exact opposite of what Alex always thought he wanted. But when a nine-year-old daughter he never knew existed shows up on his doorstep, Maya is the one who helps them hold it together. With love on the line, will the guy who's always played it safe be willing to take the biggest risk of all?
Maya Goodwin lives life without restraint, passionately throwing herself into work, play, and love. Even when an arm injury halts her career as a police officer, she keeps pushing to get what she wants. Dr. Alex Nolan, a renowned expert in genetic disorders, is never reckless , but with Maya, he discovers his wilder side. At first he wants Maya to teach him about superheroes and martial arts so that he can bond with his newfound daughter, Charli, but as he gets to know Maya, Alex realizes life is messy and can’t be kept in compartments. With Maya’s help, Alex shows Charli that even with hemophilia she can have fun, as long as she is careful. Nicholas successfully weaves facts about hemophilia into conversations without being overly preachy. At its heart, this contemporary romance is about families—the family of friends that Maya has assembled and the family Alex is trying to put together with Charli and her mother—and how the two blend together. This fun and flirty contemporary romance is a fresh and engaging take at the opposites-attract trope, with a lovable cast. Agent: Elizabeth Winick Rubinstein, McIntosh & Otis. (Apr.)

"Erin Nicholas celebrates geek culture in this upbeat, sexy romance. Looking to connect with his ten-year-old daughter, staid doctor Alex Nolan reaches out to cosplayer Maya Goodwin for a crash course on comics and fangirls. We identified with Maya and her love of superheroes (we've been known to crush on Captain America, too). And we loved the sweetness of this story, which is a perfect escape."iBooks Best Books of March
