A BABY ... AND AN UNWILLING BRIDE

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 pa

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

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've found treasure in this one.
Nothing new about the plot, but the writing and the characterization were great.
Lana was a good heroine. Strong without being annoying, stubborn but not stupid, didn't give up easily to her attraction to Matt and she fell in love with Matt after seeing his good sides (not just because he's soo hot and good in bed).
As for Matt, at the beginning he was your regular jerk hero. But he learned to respect Lana, trust her and love her.
A very good romance story.

Perfect ending to the Valente brothers series. A beautiful romance story. It started with Matt being so harsh and cruel, but he was such a loving hands-on father. I like that Lana was strong, intelligent and independent. Megan was adorable. Cesare finally had everything he had always wanted for his family even if he did things in such unconventional and manipulative ways.

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.

Not bad. Short. To the point.

I felt there was something mising: maybe more development in the characters, maybe in the sstory. I just couldn't believe of falling in love htat way.

I'm losing my liking of romance.

predecible, entretenido, un típico libro de harlequin. Bueno para pasar el rato, pero no una obra maestra.

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.

This was boring. I didn't like the hero or the heroine. At least this was a fast read.

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.

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.

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
