Benson Bayou Beauregard is the president of the Bear Bottom Guardians MC, and the grandson of the Sergeant at Arms for the Dixie Wardens MC. He’s a mountain of a man and the warden of a prison, and there’s only one thing that can scare him—being told that he’s the father of a three-year-old little girl.
A three-year-old little girl that has no clue who he is. Hell, he only finds out about the little cherub when a woman from child protective services comes by and rocks his world before leaving the girl in his shocked arms.
Every single thing he thinks he knows goes up in a cloud of smoke.
To make matters worse, the woman that he’s been trying to convince to give him a chance takes one look at the little girl and tells him that he’s just not in the right place to handle both of them.
But Bayou was never one to back down from a challenge.
He can handle a three-year-old girl that acts exactly like him, and he can more than take on the fiery red-head that sets flame to his blood while he’s at it.

Phoebe met Bayou when she was 15 and has been in love with him ever since. She hasn’t seen him for nine years and now not only are they working together but his cousin is married to her sister.
Bayou has loved Phoebe since their first meeting as well. He had also believed that he was lacking compared to those around him, but she never saw him that way and because of her he started to believe he wasn’t as well.
When Bayou finds himself the father of a daughter he didn’t know about his world is rocked. Phoebe is willing to support him as he adjusts to fatherhood but feels he has enough to deal with and she doesn’t want to complicate things however Bayou is determined to win the hearts of both his girls.
I loved these characters. Bayou is not your typical alpha male but when he is challenged the strong protector comes out and it is amazing to watch. Phoebe has never seen Bayou as anything less than perfect and she won’t allow anyone else to see him that way either. Together they are perfect especially when you include his daughter.
