I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it.

I've been enjoying Joanne Rock's stories about the McNeill brothers so far and I was excited to finally get to meet the other three brothers. While His Pregnant Secretary wasn't my favorite of the series so far, it was a good addition to the series and I am looking forward to the other two brothers their stories. We get a few hints about them in this book so far, which makes me curious about their stories.

Little Secrets: His Pregnant Secretary by Joanne Rock  

Their journey began with friendship, but a passionate encounter changed all that. Life just got complicated. An unplanned pregnancy, family issues and insecurities disrupt the burgeoning attraction between Jager and Delia, but one well guarded secret could spell the end of a chance at forever before hello has even begun. His Pregnant Secretary is a chance to get acquainted with a new branch of McNeill men and maybe even solve a mystery.

I love when books start to get intense as you read through their collections. As much as I am a sucker for these types of books and I will never get bored of them, I saw that the first 3 books were repetitive, now that I read Jagers story. I can’t wait to read his other brothers Damions story, I hope it’s just as good.

Ever read a series and can’t wait for the next book to come out? Yep, this is that series for me. I’ll never forget when Ms. Rock offered me the first book in the series (Quinn’s book) and asked me to review it. Oh.My.Gosh. I was completely hooked. Then we get to Cam’s book (#3) and at the last 1/4 of it, we are told that there are 3 more McNeill’s to drool over and read about. I waited with bated breath when it came to reading about the others. And trust me, Ms. Rock does not disappoint. Next m ...more

4 1/2 STARS!

With a fun take on an affair with the boss storyline, Joanne Rock brings us the next book in her McNeill Magnates series. When a shocking revelation brought about the news that they had three half-brothers out there, the original McNeill brothers set out to try to touch base with them. This book introduces us to them, and brings us Jager’s story. I really loved the instant chemistry and connection between Jager and Delia and the baby surprise made a riveting read.

Delia Rickard works for a very busy man. Jager McNeill can’t seem to stand still for two minutes – he’s all business. He actually surprises Delia and that had me wishing I could be a fly on the wall. What’s great about a Harlequin Desire book is that the author packs a lot in a book that’s not that long. This author always tells a great tale – she gets me vested in her characters. She’s created a family who don’t seem to want to be a family.

Joanne Rock's latest book Little Secrets: His Pregnant Secretary is a Harlequin Desire title. This book is a quick read. The story is very well written and the characters are well developed. The main characters are Delia Richard and Jäger McNeill. Delia is Jager's assistant and oversees his businesses on the island of Martinique. Jäger is from the wealthy McNeill family and has a very large successful family. Delia and Jäger meet under peculiar circumstances and Jäger offers Delia a job. Months

After reading Joanne Rock's December release , Little Secrets: His Pregnant Secretary , I'm once again reassured that my love for this author and her writing is more justified than ever. Pretty sure Ms. Rock doesn't know how do write anything that isn't able to capture the readers attention and keep it long after they've finished reading whatever she's written, whether its a romance book or a note to her husband or her sons!

So if your looking for a book that is attention grabbing and heart melti

Little Secrets: His Pregnant Secretary is the 4th book about the McNeil Brothers by Joanne Rock but the first book in Harlequin Desire's little secrets mini series. I must say I was absolutely thrilled to get to continue to read more about the McNeil brothers. Jager and Delia are no exception. Joanne Rock always finds away to reel me right in.

Jager is proud and eager to provide for those he loves yet unsure how to truly show others the real him deep inside. Delia has been left devastated by tho

His Pregnant Secretary by Joanne Rock is the start of the “Other McNeill’s” journey to their own HEA. Malcom is certainly at it again and will do whatever he can to make his other set of grandsons part of the family. Jager, the oldest, certainly has other ideas. He wants nothing to do with Malcom, or the father that abandoned him when he was a kid. When one night with his administrative assistant, Delia, leaves him an expectant father, suddenly Jager has other ideas about the value of family. De

But Delia wants love and will not settle for convenience. The more time the spend together the closer they get but is it close enough for them to fall in love?

This was a fairly decent story. I am not a big fan of secret pregnancy storylines, but when the author does well I can set aside my non preference of these stories. I enjoyed Rock's writing very much! I thought the characters were fun and that they had interesting attributes. I do wish they had resolved some things differently and that there was more communication between them. It didn't feel like the romance started until 3/4 of the way through and it was too whirlwind for me at that point. Ove ...more

It was just one night of pleasure that turn into a pregnant situation.

He was her boss while she was his secretary.

He wanted to marry her despite learning of his fathers other life and family.

She does not trust men after her fiancé broke her heart several years ago.

Will a trip to Manhattan sway her heart during Christmastime?

Enjoyable read in the Harlequin happy ever after mode ith an exotic location.

She always liked her boss, but sure didn't plan to have his baby. Things got a little out if control, and some best intentions just don't work.

But now marriage that is different story. Not just because of a baby on the way. Already don't trust men.

Just like the other McNeill brothers' books, Jager McNeill married the girl who he really wanted in a hurry. The same formula with same scenario, but with different background story of each girl to whom the McNeill bothers married. Delia has unfortunate past which haunted her, and one hot experience with Jager, made them have to deal with some consequences, including marriage in short term. Even though she really loves Jager, she still doesn't want to marry him just for the sake of the creation ...more
