She'd resolved to "act more sophisticated" and "get out more". But the rumpled bedding, the coffee brewed by other hands, and The Note reminded Rachel Harper that she'd done something completely out of character. She'd brought a man home from a bar.
And apparently made a baby.
She'd been nervous to tell Carter Brockett the news. Oh, she felt strangely safe with him despite his dangerous looks. Worse, she liked him. But what must he think of the naïve schoolteacher who'd lost control and gotten herself knocked up? After all, the man had a legion of exes who'd been unable to snare a commitment, and here she had a forever-binding one!
Then she remembered. He'd lost control, too.

Very sweet, even when its trying to be naughty. Just a bit too mushy for me, and very predictable. I just don't believe that people actually act like this. Everyone is so perfect, reacting to the news that this woman is pregnant after a one night stand with all the generous understanding of a group of nuns, our hero's family embraces her without question. Its all just a bit much. I like a few flaws in my characters, it keeps it feeling real. But if you're in the mood to live in a fantasy land where everyone is sweet and altruistic all the time, then you'll love this!
