This book was such a sweet love story. I actually have a soft spot for stories that involve marriages of convenience – normally they are historical romances, but this contemporary romance was spot on.

Jonah is a sexy, British man (who has been knighted by the Queen) in need of a bride, so that he can inherit his childhood home back in England. At first Jonah seemed to be the kind of man that was only concerned for himself, since this wedding arrangement would be one of necessity and not love. The

Jonah Wallace needs a wife, the woman who was supposed to help him out of his current pickle left him at the last moment. Needing a phone and a breath from the sultry sun, he heads into the cafe across the street, not knowing he is about to find a solution to his problem.

Maggie Bonelli expected to close early, but when Jonah walks in looking like he needs a stiff drink she treats him with a pie and cup of coffee instead. Forming a quick friendship, Jonah proposes to Maggie explaining he needs a

An incredibly heartwarming story, and the picture perfect happily ever after. Maggie is a young woman with a problem. From a family legacy of survival without men; she is no stranger to hard work and dedication. At twenty four, pregnant and alone she knows that the future will be a struggle. Fate lands Jonah Wallace in her coffee shop one late afternoon after his fiancé leaves him the day of the wedding. Let not get hung up on the fact that their wedding was a ruse for him to be able to ensure h ...more

This book was wonderful. This is the fourth book by Mrs. Mondello and it is by far my favorite. I really love stories about people that get married in order to inherit something. I have read many and this ranks up there with The Marriage Bargain. I love Jonah and Maggie and how even though they grow up under vastly different circumstances they are very similar people. The love for the other ran throughout the story and made me keep turning pages. I love how Jonah feels about Maggie's baby throug ...more

Between 3 & 4 stars. This idea has been used a lot, but well done (the reason to read this one & others).

Really impressed with how written, back stories, etc. haven't read any others by this author, so no idea how fits into series...

Enjoyable read.
Kristi Hudecek-Ashwill
The Knight and Maggie's Baby is a contemporary romance novel with a really good storyline and compelling characters.

I liked Jonah from the very beginning. He was all ready to get married with his tux and all of that then his bride-to-be ditched him. It wasn't a marriage that had been based on love and he really hadn't been bothered all that much by it since she'd run off with the man that she really did love but it left him in a lurch. He had to find another woman to marry him in a week or he wo

I borrowed this book through Lendle.me, a place where people can lend kindle books to each other. And I'm so grateful I did.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. As a rule I don't read romances. Well, contemporary romances. Romantic sci-fi/fantasy, sure, but modern-day, modern settings, normal people? Never. But I took a chance on this (mainly because the wedding dress on the cover was rather beautiful) and greatly enjoyed it. I think that the author did a pretty good job portraying the slowl

Ok, I am a sucker for marriage of convenience stories, and this one didn't disappoint. The two main characters are very likable and you can actually see that they like and respect one another. Lisa Mondello is an author that has been around for awhile but never read. I really liked her writing style and can't wait to ready more from her!
Linda
I loved this book!! I normally do not read a lot of romance anymore but I pick up this book and loved the story. It was a sweet story that kept me entertained throughout. I read it in about a day and could not put it down. If you like romance with a good story line, this is a definite read.
SheLove2Read
Light hearted feel good romance. It could have used some editing but it didn't take away from the story overmuch. Likable if young heroine and a decidedly beta hero. Not a keeper for me but still a pleasant read. C+
Julianna
Was a pleasant enough read, i just think it needed a bit more of something. I might read it again but it is not at the top of my list.
Dianna Miller
Great read

This book like her 1st book in the series was very realistic and romantic. I enjoyed it very much and was sorry when it ended. The only thing this book needed was an epilogue say maybe three years into the future with another baby joining the family and Jonah realizing that he truly did love Amanda as much as if she were his own. Then again I think all books should have epilogues. They are the frosting on the cake. Lisa Mondello is an excellent writer even though I didn't like the 2nd

Book 3 in Fate With a Helping Hand Series
Jonah wanted to save his childhood home and the catch was to be married for one year so his Grandfather would not sell it. That is what led him to make an arrangement with his secretary, Catherine, for a pretend marriage for only one year. Only she bolted at the last minute.

Jonah had money and everything materialistic but he had an emptiness that he could not identify until he met Maggie Bonelli. Going into he

The Knight and Maggie’s Baby was a very easy read. The storyline wasn’t complicated, it was straightforward and easy to grasp. The characters too, were likable and overall, the story was good and convincing. However, I just couldn’t feel the connection to the book. As in, a spark was missing. What spark exactly, I can’t tell you. It could be that I couldn’t really feel the sexual tension that was supposed to be between the characters or their frus

I absolutely loved this story!!! From the first page to the ending! it was so good i just couldnt put it down! I loved how little bits of the story would come out and make the whole thing even more interesting! This is the kind of story that makes for a lovely way to spend an afternoon! i cant wait to read the other helping hand books in this series! i have read other books by Ms Mondello and she never disappoints me!
Christine
This book was greatly improved over the first book of the series. I liked the characters better. Maggie's personality was wonderful. The story is entirely plausible in relation to real life (well without the wealth). The ending was not rushed. It felt like a natural and satisfying ending to the reader. I feel this book really illustrates the length we will go to for our children and those we love.

My Thoughts...

I found this just a fun, cute little story. It was a quick afternoon read. It was predictable but aren't all 'Mind Candy' stories. But I must say I really enjoyed it and awarded it 4 coffee bean stars.

This book is part of my Kindle library.
Dorel
This book's story was okay. I liked how Jonah & Maggie met. I liked Maggie's character. The scene with Maggie & the kids were touching. The scene with Jonah & the baby was very touching as well. This book was a fun, loving to to read. I'm becoming a fan of Ms. Mondello.
Amanda
what crap ending! it just dove right off the cliff only to land on the branch just over the edge. the story was pretty good but major points losed for lack of communication between the characters. i like but i dont love it.
Jennifer Eckel
Nice story

Quick read enjoyed the Boston setting and happily ever after ending characters needed more development and depth in the story.

If you like love stories that could happen in real life, then this book is for you. It was a great read.

Lovely

Enjoyed this story quite predictable but still a very good read. the ending was a bit rushed as if the author had run out of words.
Leigh Bale
Delightful fun! A quick, entertaining read by one of my favorite authors, Lisa Mondello. You'll enjoy the humor, sweet emotion, and romance. A great read!
Joyce
Sweet

This was a charming little story about two people entering into a marriage of convenience for both parties and finding so much more.
Aana
This is a sweet little love story. Just one thing got on my nerves and that was the authors over use of the word "tenement"

I enjoyed this story.

Maggie needs a name for her child, and Jonah (the knight) needs a wife to save his ancestral home. It's convenient that they meet shortly after Jonah's bride to be runs off with her former fiancé and leaves him in a lurch. Maggie doesn't want Jonah's money, or anything else, just for her baby to have had a father who gives her a name so she/he won't be treated badly later in life like she was. Jonah realizes that he won't be content just giving the baby a name though. The c

Love we'll soothe all our fears and we'll let us get through the tough times if we believe in that love that we have for each other is stronger than any fear we may have to conquer.
