Cynical, jaded, practical-minded attorney Jake Chastaine is still grieving his late wife two years after her death when he discovers that due to a mistake at a fertility center where she received treatment, a woman he's never met has had his baby. Jake is determined to play a role in his child's life. He's chagrined to discover, however, that the mother of his child is as appealing as she is impractical. A gorgeous redhead, Annie is a free spirit who raises llamas, reads tea leaves and believes her dead grandfather talks to her through highway billboards. Worst of all, she makes his body temperature soar in a most illogical manner.
When his law partner and former father-in-law threatens to ruin Annie in a misguided attempt to help him acquire custody of the child, Jake decides that the best way to handle the situation is to enter into a short-term marriage of convenience. They both get far more than they bargained for, and learn a life-changing lesson about the power of love.
Interesting story of a man who has a fertility clinich sample stolen and the women who inadvertently ended up with the specimen (and the baby. Very good and there are some laughs in it to-mainly farm humor :-)
The hunk who appeared on Annie Hollister's doorstep was a looker. And from the look in his deep brown eyes, he'd come to Lucky, Oklahoma, for more that a tea-leaf reading. The tall attorney's aura was clouded, and Annie could see that he'd been suffering for some time. But all that was going to change, because a new-no, two new people were going to come into his life. And Annie wondered who the lucky pair was going to be.
Jake Chastaine knew how things were supposed to be, and that didn't include fertility clinic mix-ups or having fathered a child with a woman he'd never met. And looking at the vivid redhead who was the mother, Jake realized he's missed out on something spectacular. But the woman believed her grandfather talked to her through readside billboards! Still, he asked himself, was that any stranger than his sudden compulsion to woo her? Everyone knew how things were supposed to be-first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. Maybe this time, things were going to happen a little differently.
