Dec 19, 2014 rated it it was amazing
I thought this was the most emotional one of the three books in the series. When Nash first appeared in Single Man Meets Single Mom, I suspected he was going to play a big part in the series. I wasn't even surprised at his relationship with the family, as secret babies aren't unusual. But there was so much more than that to who Nash was and what he was looking for.

Nash and Lily have been indulging themselves in a steamy affair. The movie she's filming is due to end soon, and that is when they pl

Lily and Nash have been carrying on a secret affair. Lily has been starring in a movie on the estate that's owned by the man they are filming about. If you have read the previous 2 books in this series you are familiar with all that but for this story we focus on one of the stars and a seeming great guy who just happens to be a stable hand. Except he is not just a great guy and a stable hand. Nash James is not who he says he is. He's got other reasons for being there. Already fighting his feelin ...more

Carrying the Lost Heir’s Child by Jules Bennett is the final book in The Barrington Trilogy and can be easily read as a standalone.

This was a well written romance with a adorable epilogue which wrapped up the the whole series quite nicely. Nash is a man with secrets and I liked how well he took the news of Lily’s impending pregnancy. He was responsible and faced the consequences of his actions head on and this is what I liked about him. Lily is a strong,independent heroine who does not like secr

This book was part of the, (The Barrington Trilogy ) But I enjoyed reading it as a standalone. I didn't know it was part of a series until after I had finished reading it. I never felt lost, or anything.

I found this book to be emotional, and sweet. It had secrets, lies, and deception. I found in this story the lies and deception was for a good reason, and all the pieces fell into place by the end of the book.

For me Nash and Lily were the culmination of a wonderful series. Their story had me intrigued from page one. There were secrets and babies and horses and more secrets all woven into a wonderful story. Jules Bennett give us such a heartwarming yet heartbreaking story at the same time. The Passion and love story of Nash and Lily was what great romance books are all about. And the end... I never saw it coming. She made grab for my Kleenex, it was such a fantastic way to put the finishing touches to ...more

I cared for this book less than the other two. It was pretty fair but certainly didn't wow me. I feel the way the hero spied on his family and lied about who he was could have been handled in a more mature manner.

Let me first just say, Nash…yum. This is a cute story and enjoyable read. The plot is engaging, and the characters are easy to like and relate to.
Lily is a movie star, shooting a film on a historic estate, known for its horse stock. While on location, she starts a secret affair with Nash, one of the grooms. It’s nothing but fire and passion, and not a whole lot of talking or getting to know each other. However, when Lily ends up pregnant, they are forced to re-evaluate the future.

We have finally come to the conclusion of the Barrington Trilogy. It has been enjoyable from the first book, but now we have to come to find out who Nash. When I started the trilogy the first thing that popped in my mind when I was reading When Opposites Attract... watch Nash be related to the Barringtons. The next thought was he's probably the secret love child of Damon and the housekeeper. Okay, I was way off on that one, but he's related to Damon.

Anyway, Nash has be

When I first "met" Nash in "Single Man Meets Single Mom" I thought he was, well, a little creepy. I kept waiting for him to jump off the page at me. He jumped off the page "Carrying the Lost Heir's Child" and he certainly wasn't who I thought he was. And he wasn't who actress Lily Beaumont thought he was either. She thought she was having a quiet affair with the stable hand, but what she ended up with surprised her and the entire Barrington family. Lily found herself in love, pregna ...more

Lily Beaumont is enjoying her role in her latest movie. She loves the quiet peaceful world of the Barrington’s and playing the role of the late Rose Barrington. Lily didn’t foresee herself having a torrid affair with the groom Nash James. Something drew her to Nash from the moment they saw each other.

Carrying the Lost Heir's Child by Jules Bennett is book #3 in The Barrington Trilogy and is a winner in my book. Jules Bennett's writing sucks you into that story and keeps your interest(at least it did for me). We met Nash James(our hero) in the the other books in this trilogy and I always thought he had a story and was I ever right. Nash is working as a stable hand for Damon Barrington and is having a secretive love relationship with Lily Beaumont an actress working on a film about Damon Barri ...more

I loved this book as I have all the books I have read from Jules Bennett. She is a great writer that knows how to keep a reader wanting more & getting it. This story revolves around Lily & Nash. These characters will have you laughing, crying & most of all enjoying them!! Lily & Nash fall in love, fast & hard. But the surprise comes when Lily has to tell Nash she is pregnant. This would be a turning point for most couples but Lily & Nash accept this & move forward. But if that isn't enough to ha ...more

Jules Bennett was recommended to me by a friend a while back, but I hadn’t read any of her books until this one. I have got to say I loved it! Carrying the Lost Heir’s Child was a good quick read for me and kept my attention all the way through.

Lily Beamont is an actress filming a movie on location where Nash James is a stablehand. At least that’s what she has been led to believe. When she becomes pregnant, Nash has to decide what’s more important. The future he never imagined he wanted, or the

Oh wow! Carrying the Lost Heir’s Child by Jules Bennett is an emotionally charged story that’s so full of secrets, lies, and deception.

Carrying the Lost Heir's Child is the dramatic conclusion to the Barrington Trilogy. It’s Lily and Nash’s story that can be read as a standalone. In this installment, it’s revealed that Lily is pregnant and Nash—well he’s just full of lies and at the center of a scandal. Lily’s pregnancy gave both Nash and Lily a reality check. Read More

I think this might be my favorite of this series!! Nash is the more the focus of this book than Lily, to me, and I greatly enjoyed reading a more from the hero's point of view book!! All of Jules books are smooth to read, and full-filling. Her plots don't feel contrived. Her characters are real and believable. The backgrounds are beautiful.
I have a job with a lot of stress at times, and when I want to relax, I want a book I KNOW will hit that spot. Jules Bennett's book have always hit that spot

I really loved this one. Jules Bennett doesn't disappoint. Loved the characters Lily and Nash. Nash has some secrets that may just cost him a life with Lily and their unborn baby. The characters have to learn the gift of forgiveness because without it they could lose the opportunity of the life love and family. To me the ending was so romantic and the epilogue was a perfect way to wrap up this trilogy.

This is the second book in the Barrington Trilogy by Jules Bennett. It is well written and has great characters that have wonderful chemistry. There are many secrets that could hurt several people and also plenty of sexual attraction. As the secrets come to the surface, can Lily move past them and find happiness? Loved this book and can't wait for more from this talented author.
