Good book. Arden and Garrett had shared one fantastic night together and not seen each other for six months. When he did see her he was shocked to find out she was pregnant with his baby and hadn't intended to tell him. On top of problems at home this is one more feeling of betrayal and he's furious. He has no problem letting Arden know that he's going to be very involved. He doesn't expect to want to be involved with more than just the baby.

I liked both Arden and Garrett though both had their l
This is exactly what I wanted to read! Pure fluffy entertainment!

I found this story funny with just enough steam and angst.

This was an easy read that flowed well and was told from the third person POV of our hero and heroine.

I would recommend this to romance fans who like the Harlequin style romance!

Good romance

The people were all very likeable. I enjoyed knowing the whole family on both sides. The emotional upheaval during pregnancy made me cringe. I did not like that he blamed her for not telling him, but I didn't see him trying to stay in touch afterwards either. o

A decent enough novel but it wasn't as good as others similar.

I love these characters. All of them.

And I read this book in one sitting. It's possible my family's not speaking to me. *shrugs* Fortunately they're all old enough to forage.

Secret babies have always been a stretch for me, but Arden is just the kind of character who makes the situation perfectly believable. She's known more tragedy than any one person ought, but she's still kind and strong with her sense of humor intact. She doesn't claim to be perfect and takes responsibility for her actions, t

I truly enjoyed this book and loved the characters. They were well developed and I can't wait to read about Arden's brothers in the books that are to follow. I couldn't put it down and stayed up most of the night. I absolutely love secret baby romance novels.

Arden Cade is a photographer and met a man at a wedding she was shooting. Their night together was the best either had ever had. Now, she's pregnant and keeping the father a secret from everyone, including him, who lives out of town.

Tanya Michaels has done it again...given us a heart-warming story full of characters that you can't help but fall in love with.

In the first installment of The Colorado Cades, we are introduced to Arden Cade and Garrett Frost. After sharing a night of passion, Arden discovers that she is pregnant. Fully intending to raise the baby on her own(with the help of her over-protective brothers)until she and her burgeoning belly run into the handsome Garrett Frost in the grocery store while he is in tow
I ended up skimming through this. I love an unplanned pregnancy trope but this didn't work for me. I wasn't a huge fan of Arden and Garrett came across as whiny and a bit too beta-like for me.

4.5 Stars

In Her Secret, His Baby by Tanya Michaels, Arden Cade had a wonderful one-night stand with a wedding guest where she was the photographer. She may not have wanted to mix business with pleasure, especially since it was the anniversary of a sad occasion for her and she was feeling very low, but Garret made it worth it, only she panicked and sneaked out the next morning. Then she finds out she is pregnant and she doesn’t want to drop that bombshell on Garret when they don’t even know each

A Little Steamy – A Little Funny – A LOT OF ROMANCE!
Book One in the new series Colorado Cades! Ms. Michael’s books always deliver a great story and Her Secret, His Baby doesn’t disappoint! This is a fast-paced book that will keep you up all night – you won’t want to put it down! A great story line where love and sometimes forgiveness make us realize how happy we can be in a mixed up world. The characters become real and you will cheer along with them as they work through the twists and turns. Wh
Good story. Hero and heroine have a one-night stand and the protection fails, so the rest of the story is about dealing with that. The heroine doesn't tell the hero about the baby--partly because by the time she wraps her own head around it, she's into the sickness phase and just doesn't get around to thinking about it. Then when the hero finds out by accident, he's in bad place & feeling abandoned and betrayed by his own mother so the heroine's secret hits him extra hard. So they have an ex ...more
