Summary: "SURPRISE PACKAGE!

When Lucas Halliday saw Reba Grant for the first time in months, he was in for a shock: Reba was pregnant with his baby and she'd just gone into labour!

Reba couldn't believe it this baby was coming way too early. And Lucas was hardly supposed to be her birthing partner. For she'd thought and feared that she'd seen the last of the billionaire businessman, despite all that had happened between them. Now, with their tiny daughter fighting for survival, Reba was surprised to realize Lucas was a loving, devoted father. And that gave her hope that maybe Lucas had potential as a husband, too .

Review:     I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. I picked it up at random while enduring a long wait for an appointment. By the time I left, I was over halfway though the book and hooked. Lucky for me the secretary said I could take the book with me.

    I love Reba's character! She shows amazing strength in this book. A hard worker, devoted friend and neighbor in her community. She has a short-lived affair with wealthy Lucas and ends up pregnant. Months later he is back in town and it just so happens that Reba goes into premature labor at that time. Talk about rotten timing! Neither has time to focus on much of anything accept the pending survival of their child.

    This novel is sweet at times and heart-wrenching at others. Anyone who has had a child stuck in a hospital can likely sympathize with these two. Although Lucas' behavior is all over the place and often frustrating. He even does one really stupid thing that had me wanting to jump into the book and kick his butt.

    Otherwise I was pleased with this read. The emotional and character depth was surprising for a Silhouette novel. So for a sweet romance, with a very high emotional real-life crisis this is well done.

  1. I hope it turned out okay for them! It sounds like a sweet read. Reminds me of what I know of my mom's pregnancies. Three before I was born, either miscarriages or stillborn. When I was born, she was insanely overly protective. I think it kills her now to have me living across the country and having health issues/not wanting to go home. Have to remind her on a regular basis that I have better medical care here. While I've not had kids, I've seen how stressed out illness can make a parent.

  5. I actually enjoy waiting for appointments b/c it gives me an excuse to read. It's been a while since I've read a paperback romance novel like this. I think the last one was Mail Order Cowboy, a book I won through Goodreads First Reads. I used to read teenage romance books when I was younger.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it and it was nice of the secretary to let you take it. If it were me, and I couldn't finish and/or take the novel, my next stop would be the library.

  6. Sounds like a cute story. It sounds it could be like a fairy tale not seeing each other for months and then getting together. Sad about the baby being sick.

  7. Sounds like a sweet story. Almost like a fairy tale they don't see each other for months and then he finds out he will be a father. Oh and he's wealthy! They stay together. Do not know how the book will be with a sick baby but that is a test of a relationship.

  8. This sounds like a heart warming wonderful story that I would like to read. I love these types of book because they warm my heart and they give me faith. Life's struggles aren't something any of use can avoid, it's how we deal with them that makes it worth it!

  9. You know, someone also recommended this story years ago, I'm just uncertain if I'm going to read it or not. I trust your reviews. I think, we're always on the same boat when it comes to books, so I'm thinking i'm gonna give this book a try. Thanks!
