Connor O'Leary knows nothing about babies, families, or good women, yet he's up to his ears in all three. Coming to Shadow Creek, Montana was meant to be a new start for this former oil rigger, but he had no idea that fresh beginning would include a baby on his doorstep and a hot nanny he can't stop thinking about. Diapers, feedings, and late nights soothing his little bundle of surprise were definitely not on his itinerary.
The last thing Haley Thomson expected to see is the reclusive Connor with a baby in his arms. Before she knows it, she's volunteered as nanny—temporarily. Helping out with baby Rosie is a dream come true and fills a space in her heart she believed will never be filled. But falling for Rosie's hot and sexy bachelor daddy is not on her to-do list…but boy would she ever like it to be...
Connor O’Leary feels like an outsider looking in at the weekly family gatherings in Shadow Creek. He watches Haley Thomson from a distance knowing he will never be good enough for her. One night he goes home and finds a baby on his doorstep. He is at a loss for what to do never having thought of family. Haley comes to the rescue as his nanny. It’s hard not to pretend that they are not like a family. Their pasts threaten the harmony in the home Haley is making for Connor and baby Rosie.
In an Oyster Shell – A sweet romance with an adorable baby that encourages me with a positive message of two people overcoming hard pasts.
The Pearls – A bad boy and a baby sign me up! I was so excited for this novel it had an intriguing premise and I was not disappointed. The small town setting added even more appeal. I would like to read more books in this series.
I liked that Connor and Haley are troubled. They have pasts to overcome and they challenge each other. They are flawed which makes them easy to relate to. The supporting characters were distinctive and added depth to the stories. I believe they are from previous books in the series and I would like to go back and read their stories. That is a rarity for me.
The romance was sweet and it was fairly clean. There was a lot of turmoil between the two which made the love relationship more interesting. The conflict at the end was intense and I enjoyed it. It added complexity to the story raising the bar on this romance.
The Sand – It was a good book.
