Title: Bedding the Baby Daddy (Bedding the Bachelors Series)
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Wealthy Dante Callaghan certainly earned his reputation as a playboy, but now that he’s caring for his younger sister, he’s happily exchanged night clubs and one-night-stands for Disney movies and play dates. Moreover, for the first time in his life, he’s interested in committing to one special woman. Unfortunately, Aurora LeMonde doesn’t want anything to do with him.
Despite her undeniable attraction to Dante, Aurora’s convinced her happily ever after depends on a different man. When she’s proven wrong, Aurora’s not strong enough to turn down the comfort of Dante’s arms. Only once Dante touches her, Dante’s all she can think of, and soon she realizes he’s the only man to ever truly touch her heart.
When Aurora discovers she’s pregnant with Dante’s baby, will she trust that her child’s father is also the man of her dreams? And will Dante stop settling for a piece of Aurora and finally claim all of her, body and soul?
*Bedding the Baby Daddy is a stand alone.
“What’s going on? Are you sick?”
“Have you eaten today?” His heart was beating a mile a minute.
She gestured to an unopened salad on her desk. “I just picked that up a few minutes ago.”
Dante grabbed the salad and ripped the top off. “There’s no food in this food!”
“What?” She rubbed a hand over her forehead and looked at him in confusion.
“There’s like two pieces of lettuce and one olive. What the hell kind of lunch is this? No wonder you’re fainting.”
A small smile quirked its way out of her lush lips before she wiped her expression clean. “I happen to like my food. And don’t worry about the lightheadedness. I just didn’t sleep well last night. What are you doing?”
“I’m fanning you with a file, what does it look like?” Dante was irritated and he wasn’t sure why. The woman needed a BLT and a beer. That would set her right. But the odds that he could get her to eat any of that were zero. So she was going to have to just sit there and let him fan her.
She swatted at his hand. “Don’t be ridiculous, Dante.”
“Just hush up and let me take care of you for a second, Aurora.”
Her eyes widened as she stared up at him. She worried her bottom lip between her teeth. Her voice was small when she spoke again, confusion and vulnerability warring in her eyes. “That’s what you want?”
He set the file down and didn’t break eye contact, knowing that they were suddenly talking about so much more than just her fainting spell. “I want anything you’re willing to give me. Anything.”
