Valente's Baby by Maxine Sullivan
Matthew Valente and Lana Jensen

Matthew Valente is the youngest son of Cesare Valente, founder of the House of Valente. The sexcapades of the three Valente brothers is well documented. When Cesare Valente tells Matt that he has a child he laughs. When Matt realizes he’s not joking he livid when he tells him who the mother of the child is Lana Jensen. Unbelievable the one woman Matt didn’t protect himself from at that company party. Just great. Well he would expose

For Matthew Valente, paternity trumped everything. Never mind that his ex-employee Lana had kept his baby a secret for nearly a year. Never mind that he considered her a liar and a thief. Their child would bear the Valente name...and so would she.

As tension mounted in the House of Valente, Matthew fought to resist the memories of their past indiscretion. His bewitching bride insisted things were not as they seemed. But as restraint turned to passion, would the corporate king fall victim to the v

i really liked this one. i loved that Lana stood up for herself and didnt let Matt just boss her around. i also liked that there was a lot of baby scenes, usually with these books the nanny takes over or the baby is always sleeping, but we got to see all three of them interact.

I will give that the book doesn't skimp on interaction between Lana & Matt,
though it's as formulaic as all get out. Secret Baby romance is a acquired taste,& this one tastes pretty foul.
Nina
This book is from the Billionaires and Babies series from Desire. It's a good book, but has I said before a bit racy for me, but I love the story line, really good idea.
Linda
This was a cute, light story. The dialog at times was a little lame, but otherwise not a bad read. If this was part of a series, I'd read more.
Kelly
Wasn't horrible but it wasn't spectacular either. One of those books where I even giggle at all the terminology used ...
Dany
predecible, entretenido, un típico libro de harlequin. Bueno para pasar el rato, pero no una obra maestra.
Teresa
This is a cute standard fare Harlequin fluffy romance. Nice mindless read with a happy ending.
Biba
This was boring. I didn't like the hero or the heroine. At least this was a fast read.
Jenny
Nice story. I like a heroine with mental scars and this one was feisty as well!
KatLynne
2.5 This was an ok, quick short read. A few steamy love scenes.

I have to say that I pretty much blame my mother for all this. If my dear Mum wasn't an avid reader of romance, then I might not have fallen in love with romance novels myself. And then I wouldn't have decided to write my own romances. Thanks Mum!

Of course, I never thought it would take me 20 years before I saw my first piece de résistance in print. Perhaps I wouldn't even have tried, but you know
