"He's Got A Lot To Learn"Scott Matthews had no idea Ginger Winchester was a teacher when they first met--he didn't even know her last name. That didn't stop them from sharing a night of passion. Scott hoped he'd see Ginger again--just not in his daughter's new classroom! Yet, somewhere under that frumpy sweater and chalk dust is the sultry redhead who's been haunting his d ...more

Megan Kelly takes us back to Missouri for her newest book, Stand-In Mom. And as always, takes us back to the theme of family and community.

Ginger Winchester, a local teacher, wants one thing more than any other, a baby of her own. Divorced and unable to conceive, she’s been working on polishing her image to make the adoption agency see her as deserving. So when she shares a night of passion with a complete stranger, she’s determined not to make that mistake again.

Scott Matthews, a smooth-talking

A widower and a divorcee come together at different places in their lives and find the pieces of their hearts they hadn’t realized were lost.

Ms. Kelly has written a romance that touched me with its compassion and kindness. The characters have so many things going on in their lives, from the mundane, the tender and sweet, and the pains of dealing with a small community and the small minds within it.

This is a story rich in emotional d
It was a chilly, rainy day, and I had a bad cold... I put on fuzzy socks, made tea, and read this book. Perfect! It was a light, easy to read, well-written romance with just the right dosage of naughtiness. The characters - not just the heroine, but several of the main characters - were appealingly flawed and went through some kind of development as the book went on. And, the writer really infused the book with a lot of personality - humorous bits, unusual phrases.

A short description - this boo
Wow, what an excellent book!! I received this book after winning it from a giveaway. It took me a few weeks to get around to reading it because I was in the middle of reading a different series and wanted to finish it first. I was astonished at how this book grabbed my attention and kept it from beginning to end. This book had an excellent story line that in my opinion, did not follow the every day love and romance novel story line that most books seem to follow. Excellent book!! Thanks for givi ...more

Odd circumstances happen with this couple after a mind blowing night together. Stand in Mom has just the right amount of friction and chaos to make this romance juicy and interesting; yet it also touches your heartstrings and makes you want to root for this couple. This is a book you will be glad you took the time to read.

It's was okay read, no giant conflict. So I was not as impressed by this novel.
Heartwarming and sweet. Perfect reading for a quiet afternoon!
