Baby in Waiting
Harlequin American, Aug 2008, $4.99
In Southern California, twenty-five years old receptionist Brooke Bernard is pregnant with no daddy to help raise her child. Archway Real Estate owner Oliver Armstrong hesitantly agrees to allow the beleaguered Brooke to stay at his house while she searches for a father to help her raise her baby.
As Brooke and Oliver live in close proximity their attraction for one another ignites. However, he is a workaholic who only develops properties not infants while she has no hope he would want to raise someone else’s baby. As they fall in love, Brooke prays Oliver will see the light as she knows no other man will do for her and her baby.
Brooke and Oliver are a nice couple, but letting her stay in his pad seems out of character for this bachelor and her quest for a father seems inane. Still the story line is well written when the duo try to avoid each other; as the platonic pair are attracted to one another even with a BABY IN WAITING. Falling in love complicates their relationship.
