What does this book tell me?
The hero knows not what condoms are.
He had sex with the heroines cousin 3 times- got her pregnant.
Been with the heroine for less than a month- got her pregnant.
Do we see a pattern here, hmmmmmmmmmmm?

Other than that, standard baby-on-the-threshold story. There are better ones out there.
Some of the dialogue was just so very bad. Case in point:
"Stop calling me that you dog turd. You and I are in no way related, thank God."

With the context it is even worse.

I should have reread one of my favorites instead of buying this one.
Loved the book. It was a follow on to The Paternity Proposition and confirms that Blake is Molly's father. Blake is stunned, but thrilled to find out he is Molly's father. Especially since he thought that the woman who was her mother had died well before Molly was born. When he found out Grace's part in the deception, he was furious. All Grace had wanted was to find out which man was Molly's father and make sure that Molly would be safe and loved. Once that was assured, she left them and went ho...more

"You're the father."
After leaving her late cousin's baby on the Dalton doorstep, Grace Templeton poses as a nanny to discover which of the billionaire twins is the father. Grace promised to protect the child, but she didn't plan to fall for the seductive brother she learns is the daddy.

For single dad Blake, there's only one priority—protecting his daughter from whatever secrets Grace won't reveal. He'll get the truth from her—any way he can. And until she talks, he'll keep the temptress at his s...more

I loved Grace and Blake's story. She brought her cousins baby to the Dalton's to give it to the father and make sure it was loved. She only planned to stay until the paternity was revealed. But her secret was discovered and she had to leave. Two weeks later, he comes proposing a marriage for the baby which she agrees upon. She has been hiding from her cousins abusive husband because she fears he will harm the Dalton's and the baby. The book culminates in a fast and intense ending. I loved the en...more
I had fun with the book :).
This was one of my favorite Harlequin books I have read. I like how the author didn't drag out the who the father was for the baby Molly. And how she mentioned that the relationship between Blake and Grace was developing during the time she was working as a nanny. I enjoyed that even though they jumped into marriage for Molly's sake that they got to know each other before they got a lot closer. The touch of suspense at the end was a nice touch and I looked forward to see how it was resolved and...more
I started to type this review, ready to point out the negatives in this novel, because, of course, it is one of those Harlequin monthly releases...But, I couldn't think of a single negative and I realized that I really did love this book. The progression of the romance was great. I really loved both Grace and Blake. The suspense was also well done. And Delilah managed to keep her interference to a minimum! This was a delightful, fast read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Great book if your looking to wasted your time. The author had the right story in mind but spent so much time describing things over and over again i lost interest a number of times. If that was not enough she talked about thing in such great length that had no real relevance to the story.

My kind of quick read. H/h are strong-willed. Plot has some life-threatening danger. and there's a hard-nosed matriarch pulling some strings.

My only regret reading this book is not reading the prequel first. I will rectify that soon.
