I love Jane Graves and her clever talent and imagination in Black Ties and Lullabies. Here is an author who is becoming a favorite of mine. Romance is her thing and a bachelor like Jeremy Bridges is the right man to make bodyguard, Bernadette Hogan rethink her whole life. These two are so opposite of each other but one night makes them see what they have been ignoring all along. Passion and romance is definitely in this book and the characters are feisty as ever. Jane Graves shows us that the old cliché about can a bachelor change is very possible as long as the right woman is with him. Great job.
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?
