Molly McAdams is giving readers a glimpse of Chase’s side of the story with “Stealing Harper,” and today, she thought she’d give us a look into what the future holds for Harper--and her son by Chase, Liam. Fair warning: you may want to grab your tissues before reading this touching, heartbreaking letter from Harper to baby Liam.
::Letter to Liam::
Liam Chase –
As I write this, your dad is telling you about your biological father, and you’re listening to him like what he’s telling you is the most interesting thing in the world. You’re too young to know what he’s saying, and you’re too young to understand exactly who the man is that he’s talking about. One day, you’ll understand, and I hope you grow up loving him as much as your dad and I still do.
Chase was the guy that everyone wanted to be friends with, or just be close to in general. He was a magnet; he was always the life of any party, and ready to make people laugh. But that was the Chase that everyone saw, not everyone had the privilege to see him during down times. He was real, he was caring, and amazing at anything he set his mind to.
And he loved you.
The moment he found out I was pregnant with you, he never showed any fears of being a dad. I’d been so afraid of how he would react, and his immediate reaction was excitement and to inform me we were having a son. Even before we felt you kick the first time, he would spend hours every day rubbing my stomach and talking to you about his hopes for the future with you.
I have no doubt he would have been an amazing father, and it kills me that you won’t get to meet him. But your dad and I will never stop talking about him, and we will do everything we can so you know exactly who Chase was, and grow up loving him too.
I love you, always

Chase Grayson has never been interested in having a relationship that lasts longer than it takes for him and his date to get dressed again. But then he stumbles into a gray-eyed girl whose innocence pours off her, and everything changes. From the minute Harper opens her mouth to let him know just how much he disgusts her, he's hooked.Goodreads - Amazon - Barnes & Noble
But a princess deserves a Prince Charming who can make her dreams come true. Not a guy who can turn her life into a nightmare.
All good intentions go out the window when Harper starts to fall for the guy Chase has come to view as a brother. He wanted to protect her by keeping her away, but he can’t stand to see her with anyone else, and he’ll do anything to make her his. But when it comes down to Harper choosing between the two, will Chase have the strength to step back from the girl who has become his whole world if it means she’ll be happy?
Lines will be crossed. Friendships will be put to the test. And hearts will be shattered.
