I'm beginning to think that Kleypas is better at contemporary than historic romances. This was a very quick, easy to read book. Very sweet. This is a continuation to the Travis family series.

Ella has distanced herself from her narcissitic mother and a sister she have always taken care of. But then her sister dumps her newborn on Mom who plans to report it to child services since her new younger boyfriend can't find out she is a grandmother, so Ella to the rescue again. Her boyfriend had told her not to bring the baby home. She thinks billionaire playboy Jack Travis might be the father and hunts him down baby in tow hoping to convince him to take responsibility. And the romance begins.

Ella is a great character but the scenes with her mother in particular is really hard to sit through. Really she needs to cut her off. But other than that, she is a very likeable character and the banter between Jack is lighthearted and fun.

It isn't as much of a tearjerker as Haven's story of "Blue-eyed Devil" but well worth the read.
