Kelly Pendleton is faced with having a baby now or maybe not at all. She goes to her brother, Murphy to make up a list of eligible men but everyone seems to have a flaw.
Thomas Sheridan, it seems, has been hanging around her family, like forever. At 33, he is a history professor at the near by college and good friend and buddy to Murphy.
Kelly works at the same law firm with Murphy and at 28, she has been privy to most of the antics of Murphy and Thomas. She has to prove she can outdo them most of the time. [I will admit that I get ticked at her attitude thru out the book. But some women are like that.]
The hidden attraction that has been brewing over the years undercover of their aggitation finally explodes when Kelly asks, really begs, Thomas to sire her child.
Thomas refuses until she agrees to a marriage of convenience, to give his child legitamacy and proof that he will not abandon his child. Boy, what a lot of misunderstandings occur after that.
Neither seem able to recognize love until it slaps them in the face, or heart as the case may be.
Thoroughly enjoyable - I can't believe that I had read this same book nine years ago. Definitely a keeper!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED -? Great, even the second time around.
