Bernadette Hogan can't believe what she has gotten herself into, of all the crazy situations she could imagine, getting pregnant by her infuriating boss was not even a blip on her radar. This is so not like her, she already has her plate full.
Jeremy is willing to try to make things work, even though he is still reeling from the shock of that things got so out of hand.
How can an independent woman and a self-made millionaire learn to compromise without chewing each other to pieces?
In BLACK TIES AND LULLABIES, Jane Graves had penned a delightfully entertaining tale with a fascinating cast of characters, keeping me laughing and smiling all throughout the book. I loved following Bernie and Jeremy on their journey to love and happiness.
Bernie was a great heroine! This is the first book I've read where the woman has been the muscle, Jeremy was no slouch, but Bernie definitely could handle her own in a fight. I loved that she was independent and more than capable of taking care of herself, no matter what the situation, but I also like watching her learn that it's okay to lean on someone elses shoulder.
Jeremy was an irritatingly arrogant guy, but you could sense the loneliness he kept so well hidden. I loved watching him grow emotionally, learning how to love and be loved. Bernie and Jeremy are definitely a couple I can picture living Happily Ever After, forever.
I really enjoyed Bernie's co-worker's and the struggle Bernie was going through with her mother added depth and emotion to the story. I can't wait for Ms. Graves' next book! Her characters and stories are always very humorous and well plotted.
A good girl can be bad for one night...
Bernadette Hogan doesn't make mistakes. Not when it comes to caring for her mother, and not at her job protecting Texas's most eligible--and infuriating--bachelor. Maybe that's why she's overcome with guilt after one tiny indiscretion: a passionate fling with her boss that's left her confused, intrigued...and pregnant.
but can a bad boy be good for a lifetime?
To self-made millionaire Jeremy Bridges, women are like fine wine: if held for too long, they sour. But one wild night with Bernadette changed all that. She makes him laugh, she makes him think, and soon she's going to make him a father. For the first time, Jeremy wants to be a one-woman man. So how can he convince the fiercely independent Bernadette he's ready to change from partying playboy to dependable dad--and become the loving husband she deserves?
