The Baby Barter

GIVEAWAY

HALL, PATTY SMITH
THE BABY BARTER

A baby to cherish..
Home from the war, army nurse Thea Miller is determined to adopt her late sister's baby and begin a new life. But someone else has the same intentions—the town sheriff and Thea's old friend, Mack Worthington. Now, in order to keep her niece in the family, Thea must reach an agreement with him.

Mack isn't sure Thea—whose actions once hurt him badly—is committed to baby Sarah. And a judge may never approve a single-parent adoption for either of them. But what if they got married? It would be a marriage in name only. Yet the more time Mack spends with Thea, the more he begins to believe their pretend family can become the real one they've both been longing for.

My Review:

Seriously. Show me a man that's gaga over a baby and I'll be gaga over the man. Hello Sheriff Mack -- definitely a swoonworthy hero. And a wounded one. So that's a double whammy -- besotted over his baby girl and holding a heap of trouble trapped inside his heart. A winning combination that can't help but thaw Thea's rigid attitude. She's a woman on a mission and Mack is in the way. She carries a world of hurt beneath the professional nursing fa├žade she presents to the public. A love story ripe with conflict but sweetened with tenderness. Delicious right to the very last page.

    1. Bwahahaha, you're a reader after my own heart, Trixi.

      And about the blog updates....strange. I signed up too, just to make sure it worked and I've been getting mine...I haven't checked today. Maybe they are getting redirecting to Spam? I'm totally clueless when it comes to all things techie but I'll see if I can ask someone who might know.

      Good luck, Trixi.

  4. A marriage of convenience story with a sweet little baby has to be a good read. Just wanted to say, I haven't received blog posts for the last two days either. I've checked my junk folder just to be sure.

  9. I was so interested in this book when I saw it as a pre-buy that I sought out some of her back list. I especially enjoyed Hearts Rekindled.
