Jacqueline Diamond has written a fast enjoyable book. The Would-Be Daddy is a stand alone book that is well written and believable. The story develops well and the characters are a pleasure to get to know. The characters have their own back stories that are well stated and they need continue to follow through with their story as they hit bumps in the road. I look forward to reading more from this author. There was nothing surprising in this story, just a well put together story.
Franca Brightman is a psychologist and is dealing with her own tragedy when she is reunited with an old friend, Marshall Davis who is the newest surgeon at her hospital. Between friends, family and work they are finding themselves drawn closer together. As they work around the facts that they have always been drawn together they must quickly come to terms of the new future they are facing as one night of passion will carry consequences, for them both, forever. They must decide if their differences will tear them apart or compliment each other.
Safe Harbor surgeon Marshall Davis and staff psychologist Franca Brightman have different opinions on almost everything, but especially on children. She's been fostering kids for years, while he only wants to raise his own child.
But one night when Franca desperately needs tenderness, Marshall is there for her, and they find comfort in each other's arms. She brushes it off as a moment of weakness. Until she discovers she's pregnant. Franca wants this baby, and she knows Marshall does, too—but only on his terms. Does this mean war…or a wedding?
