The book starts off with Tessa having very mixed feelings about her baby. She didn't love the father and wonders how she'll love his baby. Her powerful in laws want the baby, but she refuses th give an innocent up to the two people who helped mold the wife beating jerk she was married to. So she goes on the lam and hides out at her ex brother in law's ranch (he was married to her sister).
To protect her from her dead husband's family, Keefe Walker decides on a marriage of convienence. And since this is a romance, we all sort of know what happens next.
This was a good book. Tessa was a "weak" heroine. Not an "I can do anything" person. Just someone who wants a family to take care of. Keefe is a strong man, a man who will do what is right, no matter what the cost. He'll protect Tessa and her innocent baby with his name, the backing of his family, whatever it takes.
This a wonderful book. One of her best.A women pregnat and alone. A man protective and strong. A child is born.
This is my all time favorite book. It has very dry humor and tear jerking sadness. Of course, it has a happy ending. This is the best book in the "Family Circle" series by Dallas Schulze.
