Publisher's Summary

Jane Darlington is a genius at physics, but there's one problem she can't solve. She yearns for a child, but wants to spare it the pain of growing up as...well, a nerd. And surely any child of Jane's would be a little too brainy for the playground set.

So she sets out to find a special man to father her child, someone without too much gray-matter between his ears: in short, a big, strong dope. Cal Bonner, legendary pro quarterback, seems to fit the bill. But there's something Dr. Jane hasn't counted on: he's no dumb jock. And he's not about to get used and abused by a baby-mad schemer.

Nobody's Baby But Mine

This book made laugh out loud, constantly! I loved the character's and I loved the way Anna Fields narrated it. I have just downloaded Susan Philips other books that are in this series, I can't wait to listen to them.

Play it Again!

Nobody's Baby But Mine is another winner for the Chicago Stars fans who follow SEP's series. This time she pits a "nerdy" girl with the ultimate "male" and yes! The characters are interesting and real. The plot is romance with a wry sense of comedy. Anna Fields is again a superb narrator.

I love all SEP's books but this is one of my favs.

Revolting

There is one guaranteed way to make me stop reading any romance novel. That is for the nominal "hero" to bully women and make them afraid of physical violence, especially when one of those women is the nominal "heroine" who will undoubtedly turn around later and fall in love with him. I'm sad to say that this book falls into that category.

Loved it!

I have yet to find a SEP book that I have not enjoyed. I don't care how predictable they are, I still laugh and cry along with the characters. This book was no exception. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy a good old fashioned love story with a little "spice" thrown in for good measure!

One Of the Best

I loved this book. It did take me some time to get into it because the lady that reads it is older and I'm like 20, but it is amazing. I love a book that has a man that is take charge, and has love and as always a baby in the making.
