Baby Bonanza (Billionaires and Babies #2)
Twins? The startling revelation that his affair with Jenna Baker had produced two little boys was almost impossible to grasp.

But their mother wasn't about to let him back into her life...at least not without...more
Premise: One week of romantic bliss, which screechs to a halt when Tycoon Hero discovers that Poor but Honest Hardworking Heroine is in fact one of his employees, and not a guest on the cruise ship. He fires her and, assuming that she's after his money, refuses to countenance any explanation from her, either then or over the course of the next several months, when she calls, writes, and emails,...more
After a whirlwind affair, Nick quickly dumps Jenna. She's unable to contact him via phone, text or email to tell him she's pregnant. (I guess it never occurred to her t...more

Baby Bonanza is the lame story of a couple whose romance got interrupted due to some blatant miscommunication. Despite knowing he's her boss, Jenna decides to flirt and eventually sleep with Nick. Upon discovering who she is, he fires her and refuses to hear her side of the story. Shortly after that wondrous event, Jenna realizes she's pregnant with Nick's twin baby boys.
Now, it's been a while, and Jenna is starting to see how stupid she had been. How could she have possibly thought that having an affair based on deception with a billionaire was a good i...more
The basic premise was good but the execution was dreadful. It had potential but kept going downhill until the end, that's when it went over the cliff head first. Angry, manipulative, playboy walks all over single mother of his twins. He threatens to take them away or split them up with 1 kid going to each parent because he is pissed she didn't tell him about them, and needs child support. Despite the fact she spent a year trying to...more
I got this as a free e-book on Harlequin's site and thought it was about time I read one of Harlequin's books. Well, I am not sorry for reading it and will probably read more of their books in the future, but this particular book just wasn't for me.
The first thing that caught my eye was the cover!
I love the babies, but the picture of that macho guy holding them seems a bit silly, to be frank. But ok..it's a story about a Macho guy who just finds out he's bec...more
the book was ok .. though i did have a few niggles about it
the first seemed to be yes the heroine did get pregnant and she DID try and get hold of him for over a year (emails , letters , phone calls)
but did she try and get hold of him via his lawyer if it was a paternity thing ?
and the hero (or so called hero) nick .... well what can i say about him .. he came across as...more
So that's how she finds herself in the worst cabin the cruise has to offer in order to tell Nick he fathered her four month old twin sons.
Learning he may be a fa...more
For one thing, the whole situation felt irreal. The hero is living on his cruise ship. Why would he do that? Isn't he losing money if he's living in the best cabin instead of...more
I didn't understand their motives. Jenna decides to leave her four month old twins to get child support. However she now claims to have a good job. I can't understand how she managed to leave the boys for that long at such an early age and the way he didn't really mention the boys all that often annoyed me. and she managed to get her figure all perfect in such a short time after giving birth... Amazing...more
I didn't really like the charac...more
However, this is the second book I've seen lately where the woman hides a child(ren) because she doesn't think that the father would want to be involved. It makes me sad that these books don't want to give men more credit. Also, what is up with the men,...more
Jenna met Nick aboard one of his cruise ships and they had a week-long flaming affair. Once he learned she worked for him he dumped her and fired her immediately. Now that a year has passed by without a word between them she's aboard one of his ships ag...more
One year later, Jenna came back as a passenger to Nick's new cruise ship, the Falcon's Pride, with a surprise. He was the father of twins. But since women are constantly throwing themselves at him, he even questioned the paternity. He demanded a DNA test to confirm.
Through all the...more
It's a typical Harlequin Romance ... hard-hearted boy meets gullible girl and they fall in love, they break up over a misunderstanding, boy is mean to girl and breaks her heart, boy and girl meet up again and eventually are suddenly and amazingly still in love after overcoming some confusion. The tw...more
I cranked up my Kindle and got to work on some "Harlequins" that I had downloaded for free. I placed quotation marks around Harlequin because not all of the books were Harlequin published. For me that just means they are the smaller variety romances. The kind that normally...more
Jenna has tried to get ahold of Nick with no success, so it is time for a full face...more
Absolutely adored Jenna,how she fights for her children's rights and is ever prepared for any accusation that Nick can hurl at her,she ready with all documents,proofs and words and when Nick is tongue tied when a...more
Anyways, Nick Falco is a jerk. He never redeemed himself to my satisfacti...more
Unfortunately, the second half was a letdown. The hero ended up doing some of the typical category romance jerky stuff, and I found the resolution abrupt and almost utterly unbelievable. I mean, (view spoiler)[like 30 pages ago he was threatening to take custody of your kids...more
I'm going to have to call shenanigans on the title though. The babies weren't even in the book for at least 80% of it. What kind of poor excuse for a bonanza is that? And what kind of mother leaves her newborn babies to go off on a cruise, estranged father of her children or not?...more
One of her novels, A Pocketful Of Paradise, was made into a CBS-TV movie called The Soul Collector, starring Melissa Gilbert, Bruce Greenwood and Ossie Davis.
Over the years, she’s written under lot...more
