I think I asked about this book before. But I just did a search for threads started by me in this forum and it said there weren't any.  And I just have too many posts to search through. Also all the key words bring up too many posts. I checked my TA and I think this was just before I joined PBS and it probably went to Half-price books.  It would be a book from 2006-2007.  Romantic Suspense

I was thinking about a book I read a couple of years ago and really liked. I'm more trying to find the author to see what else they've written-this book might have been part of a series.  I might have even read other books by this author-but it's bothering me that I can't remember it.

Here's the basics as I remember them: Hero is military, probably some special forces type afraid of committment. Heroine is I think the best friend of his sister. She's always loved him.  They finally hook up for I think was just a one nighter but might have been a short fling.  He knows she loves him.  He leaves for a mission or something without telling her and then doesn't contact her for like 2yrs.  Their little fling produces a daughter.  He comes back into her life when the kids is a little over a year old.  She leads him to beleive at first that it's not his. She's in danger.  I want to say the danger is that she's being framed for stealing money from work but it could be that the danger is related to an enemy of his.  It's a full length romantic suspense and not like a Harlequin Intrigue type book. 

 

(sorry this is so long) I'm hoping someone will remember this and this time I will I will right it down and search for the author immediately.

It sounds alot like Goodness Had Nothing to Do With It :: Lucy Monroe but I think the baby is a boy  in this one.

It's not that one. I have that book in my TBR. 
 

I want to say this had a red cover with a couple on it-but I would be misremembering. The child was definately a girl and I'm remembering her having curly blonde hair like the mother but the father's eyes-which is why the heroine has trouble passing the kid off as someone else's-she looks too much like the hero.

I saw it at the thrift store today!  Turns out I have a bunch of hers already.  It was on my Transaction Archive but I didn't recognize it.   Turns out I have a lot of her books in my TBR but they're all futuristic types.  I'll have to check her website out and see if there's any that go with this one.

ETA: I'm submitting an edit to add the book description.  Her life is in danger because of a winning lottery ticket.

Well it would put you in danger if it was missing, worth millions and everyone connected with it was being murdered.

Oh, I see.  The story is a crime mystery.  I didn't get that right away.  sorry.  I just read that sentence without context and it hit me as funny.
