Yes, indeed. In this heart-warming pair of romantic comedies, Holly Jacobs successfully combines all three. In READY, WILLING, AND...ABEL? Hannah wants a baby, and she chooses Abel to father her child. Although he desperately wants land she owns for his project, Abel feels it's his duty to convince her that single-parenthood is not a good idea. So he arranges for them to baby-sit his buddy's four demon-spawn children. Watching Hannah and Abel fall in love to the point that they'll willingly sacrifice their own dream for the other's is a rich, rewarding read.
In RAISING CAIN, single working-mom Lucy takes on the task of watching the demon-spawn for the summer before she starts her own business. Woody, dad to the rowdy kids, hopes this babysitter will at least stay long enough for him to line up the next one. They have no idea where the adventure will lead - but it will involve love and laughter - and a few surprises. Raising her son, Cain, is easy for Lucy. Raising demon-spawn? Well, let's just say it's always something new. And this time, that something new may just be a whole new family. Because Lucy can see the demon-spawn for what they really are: lovable, albeit rambunctious, kids. And how can Woody resist that on top of Lucy's other charms?
Ms. Jacobs manages to surpass her excellent Harlequin debut novel with this new Double Duet. She'll make you laugh, and she'll tug at your heart-strings, making these stories not-to-be-missed.
