Being a male midwife is an unusual career choice for an Ex-army officer. But Chris McAlpine has chosen it – and he is good at it. At first his new boss, Joy Taylor, is suspicious of Chris. But in time she recognises his dedication to the job and admires his organisational skills as well. In spite of herself, she finds that she is in love with the man. Chris feels the same way. But he knows he has to tell Joy – because of a wound while on active service, he can never father children. And Joy wants children. But they decide to stay together and see how things work out. Then the unimaginable happen and suddenly Joy hates Chris. It takes all his military skills – and some help from his father – for Chris to put things right.
