Its well writen but in my mind somewhat unorigonal. I would have prefered that it covered more of their developing relationship instead of Lilly's very complicated pregnancy and her ensuing issues. Personally I felt like the book was more about the baby than the relationship and I think that's what ultimatly bothers me. They are complex charachters though, and I would certainly say its worth the read if you have nothing better to do. It sounds harsh but, that's about it.

This book was actually frustrating but good. The heroine had a condition that all her prior three babies had died because of her DNA. So when she accidentally gets pregnant again with the hero, not her ex-husband, she is terrified that she will lose this baby too. After a strenuous pregnancy and the hero sticking by her, things eventually all work out. Yay!

Unexpectedly pregnant by her rancher ex-boyfriend, a woman who manages an adult day care struggles with their resurrected relationship, her job, and her history of pregnancy loss and birth defects. Oddly touching for a Harlequin romance.

Interesting take on a woman's choice to have her baby. Also some good insight into what Adult Day Care is all about and good insight into special needs persons.

I received this book for free from either a raffle basket or conference swag bag, I can't remember.

I'm not generally a fan of the Harlequin recipe romance, but this one threw me enough curves that it held my interest. I liked that the heroine, Lilly, worked with disabled adults, and the depiction of that part of her life was very interesting and felt genuine. I also enjoyed McDavid's local (for me) setting of rural Arizona. McDavid also did a great job writing the hero's daughters, who were anyt
