Jamie's life spins out of control when Gunnison University English Professor Kyle Radcliff calls for tax assistance, having just relocated from Las Vegas. Jamie is stunned because Kyle is the one-night stand that led to her being pregnant. However, he does not seem to know her, so she agrees to do his taxes. When they meet, he immediately recognizes her as the woman he loves and has sought for the last five years. He realizes that both misunderstood several of the events from that night of heaven, but he knows he loves Jamie and believes she reciprocates. Jamie refuses to allow him to get close to her because she fears his reaction to being a father and her past, dooming this couple to a lifetime of unhappiness.
Anyone who obtains a Tara Taylor Quinn contemporary romance knows it is a time to celebrate because the novel is always entertaining. HER SECRET, HIS CHILD provides readers with an intriguing romance that demonstrates an individual with a will and a goal can surmount any obstacle. The story line is fun as it provides homage to parents as they raise their children. Jamie is a role model, who deserves being the star of a book. The prime male lead is a sensitive, compassionate individual who sees the true value of a "families". Ms Quinn celebrates families in an enjoyable romantic novel.
I have to say it's good to see an author who can deal with the subject of a woman being a whore and do it properly. Jamie doesn't say how many men she has slept with, but somewhere between 10 and 50. I've read other stories about whores and in the end they admit to only sleeping with like 2-3 people . . . not very realistic. But here it is done both realistically and respectfully, even if it is a little sugar coated.
Jamie is a very damaged person, and I wasn't even a quarter into the book and I wondered why she had money to send her kid to dance lessons but she didn't have herself in therapy. Because of her past she is traumatized about having sex because it's all connected to her own self loathing. Kyle is one of the sweetest heroes I've come across in a while, with his fear his new found daughter won't love him, his eagerness to woo the one that got away, his black and white views of right and wrong and his glasses and inability to get anywhere on time.Read more ›
Kyle doesn't immediately realize who she is, but Jamie recognizes him right away. He's Ashley's father. Even though he doesn't know it.
For Ashley's sake, for all their sakes, Jamie has to tell him the truth, something that seems to become harder every day. Because she's falling in love with him. For the second time.
