Today's teaser comes from Listen (Single Dads 5). Coming Soon.
It isn’t weak to feel grief, Nick. It’s natural.
I put the untangled lead in the garbage, then fished it back out almost immediately. What if his old phone turned up somewhere? What if it ended up back with me, and I didn’t have a way of charging it?
What if there was a way I could hear Daniel’s voice again?
“Stupid.” I muttered to nobody and dropped the lead back in the garbage, slamming the lid shut.
“Jeez, what did the bin do to you?”
I yelped, because goddammit I was lost in my own head, and Hannah sauntering in from the hallway was scary as shit. She headed straight for the refrigerator.

He only wanted to make the best home for his new daughter; he never meant to fall in love with the man who might steal her away.
Nick and his husband had always wanted a big family, but when cancer took Danny six years ago, Nick was left a single dad of three. He never considered his broken heart would heal enough to add to his family, but as soon as he meets Teegan he knows he wants to adopt the little girl. Born profoundly deaf, Teegan has been rejected twice already in the adoption process and hasn't found her forever home. Nick wants to be her hero—her dad—and create a world that is safe and happy for her. He knows he wants to make her life perfect—he doesn't know how to go about it or understand the best thing to do for his family, and he needs help. Enter Elliot, and Nick finds himself falling for the frustrating, sexy, inspiring, and caring teacher who can make things right.
Elliot is wary of helping the man who appears more interested in public opinion than the needs of his own family. But, learning that Nick, wealthy and entitled, is now adopting a deaf child, Elliot knows this is a step too far and strides into battle. As the child of deaf adults, Elliot knows he is the best person to advocate for little Teegan and, if needed, he is determined to intervene and halt the adoption. Nothing and no one will get in Elliot's way when it falls on him to protect Teegan.
This single dad story features a widower struggling to make things right, a teacher battling for a child's wellbeing, an adorable toddler, three loving siblings, a home with a view of the ocean, and families standing behind them both.More info →
