I'm only halfway through "Gifts from the Sea", but so far I really like it. It's very well-written, and the scenery is described in good detail. I'd never read anything by this author before either, but I'll probably look into some of her other work.

Try "Red Roses Mean Love" by Jacquie D'Alessandro

I'm a sucker for romance featuring babies / kids =)~

Mary Balogh :
- Simply perfect (I rarely shed tears but this almost-purrfect hero brings a boulder-sized lump to my throat w/ his luv & devotion to his blind illegitimate 11 y/o daughter)
- Simply love
- Slightly married
- Longing
- Heartless
- Tangled

Carla Kelly = Beau Crusoe
Liz Carlyle = A woman scorned ; 1 little sin ; 2 little lies
Lisa Kleypas = Stranger in my arms
Katie MacAlister = The trouble w/ Harry ; The corset diaries
Christina Dodd = My favorite bride
Catherine Coulter = The hellion bride
Loretta Chase = Lord of scoundrels
Kristin Hannah = On mystic lake
Gayle Wilson = The stranger she knew
Laurey Bright = The mother of his child
Jane Feather = The widow's kiss ; The bride hunt
Danelle Harmon = The wild one
Lisa Kleypas = Midnight angel ; When strangers marry
Susan Johnson = Brazen
Anne McAllister = Finn's twins
Lynne Graham (HP) = The Veranchetti marriage
Michelle Reid (HP) = The price of a bride
Anne Hampson (HP) = Dark hills rising

If I remember more, I'll post again.

Is it considered bad form for a writer to pop in and say I put kids in my romances? (If so, please ignore this post and forgive me.)

I write as Susan Gable, and I have kids in most of my books. (Come to think of it, I have kids in all of my books. LOL.) I often hear from my readers that I've done a good job with the kids. I used to be an elementary teacher, and I like including kids in my books because you never know exactly what they're going to say or do -- and that's a lot of fun.

My newest book is actually titled A Kid to the Rescue. :-)

Touch of Texas by Tracy Garrett--very heartwarming western historical in which the heroine takes care of her little brother alone, and he almost steals the show! :)

An Affair to Remember by Karen Hawkins. These kids are so funny!

I really enjoy any kids in Nora Roberts books.

GBR is so right. I forgot about Seth in Nora Roberts' Chesapeake Bay series, partially because he's a little bit older (a mature 10 or 11, i think?). But the brothers' relatioinships with him were GREAT. I actually liked the brothers/Seth relationships more than I did the actual romantic story lines in books #1 and #3 (though I really loved sweet, shy Ethan's romance in #2).

I loved Lexie...she was so cute and funny. She quickly learned to play her 'new' daddy against her mother.

Isn't Nick a hoot? I lol everytime she came up in scenes.

I completely agree! I just finished the Quinn series, I love that she brought Seth back for his own story in Chesapeake Blue. Robert's is one of the best for realistic interaction with children in my opinion. One of my fav's was the interaction between Aubrey and Ethan. She was adorable!

I came across a book a few years ago and fell so in love with the couple's three little girls. The title is And Baby Makes Six by Shelley Galloway. I don't think I've ever read a more endearing portrait of children. The book contains some angst because the parents have recently divorced but I hope that doesn't put you off because there is such a good HEA.

I recommend Simple Jess by Pamela Morsi--the heroines son really wanted to be the man of the house--very good book.
Also Kristen Ashley has lots of kids in her books but usually they are in their teens. a couple of books with younger kids: H's son in Sweet Dreams was very sweet and h's niece and nephew in Law Man were also adorable. The kids do go through some angst in both KA due to bad parents but I really loved both books.

I recently read a sweet story without a lot of angst but still very enjoyable. The Daddy Spell by Patty Ann Colt. Five-year-old sisters Boo and Lindy are adorable and the building of the relationship between the H and h is touching. The h is cautious and because of past history of being hurt has found it difficult to trust anything good or anyone in her life. The H is patient and still recognizes early that the h is something special. Also not a lot of typo errors and fairly inexpensive. I recommend this one.

Gifts From the Sea This book looks interesting but does anyone have a spoiler if her husband comes back?

I thought Nora Roberts Chesapeake Bay series had well-written children.

Sugar Daddy the h's mother dies when she is eighteen and she raises her 2 year old sister. Great story and series.

Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor - features a child orphan too.

These books are paranormal, but the two brothers, Jack and George, could walk off the page. They are being raised by their sister Rose, and oh, I had so much sympathy for her, because these kids are a handful. They occur in Ilona Andrews Edge series, and occurred through the first and third books. And apparently have large parts in the upcoming 4th book, so you get to watch them as they grow up.

On the Edge (The Edge, Book 1)

Fate's Edge (The Edge, Book 3)

If you like PNR, give Oracle's Moon (A Novel of the Elder Races) a try. The book has two young but very smart and cute children.

I love Kristan Higgins. Her books are so funny,yet can be really emotional. The heroine's family plays a huge role. There are always adorable kids running around.
