From Publishers Weekly
In the third and final act of her contemporary McKettrick romances, Miller (McKettrick's Pride) is at her steamiest. Ladies' man Keegan McKettrick has sworn off love following his divorce, but saucy newcomer Molly Shields may just be the woman to change his mind—even if, at first, she stirs up only resentment. The "other woman" to Keegan's longtime friend Psyche Ryan, Molly conceived a child with Psyche's now-dead husband two years ago, and reluctantly turned the baby over to him and Psyche after the birth. Now, suffering from terminal cancer, Psyche asks Molly if she'll raise the toddler. Molly is overjoyed to be reunited with her son, but less than thrilled over Psyche's conditions: Molly must raise the child in Indian Rock, Ariz.—meaning the end of Molly's successful L.A. literary agency—and she must share parenting duties with the stubborn, forceful Keegan, who's convinced that Molly harbors sinister motives. The complex, conflicting dynamics in this artificially extended clan make for high drama, spiked with intense romance, as Keegan and Molly slowly break down each other's defenses. This should delight any fan of family-centric romance, and followers of the McKettricks will be pleased to find Miller corralling all the series' characters together and tying up all their loose ends with grace and conviction. (Apr.)

In the third in Miller's McKettrick Men series, Keegan, divorced from his cheating wife, meets Molly Shields, a literary agent who gave up for adoption the son she had by a married man, when Psyche Ryan, the adoptive mother of Molly's son Lucas, summons Molly to Indian Rock, Arizona. Widowed Psyche has terminal cancer and wants Lucas to be raised in her home by his biological mother. Molly jumps at the chance. Keegan, Psyche's lifelong friend and executor of her estate, wants to raise Lucas and doesn't trust Molly, so he is appalled when Psyche imposes the requirement that Keegan and Molly marry. Love and blazing sex ensue in this satisfying romance. Diana Tixier Herald

Molly Shields, a literary agent with Pulitzer prize clients, comes to Indian Rock, Arizona to pursue a more important client -- her son whom she gave up for adoption to Psyche Ryan. Psyche summoned her with promises that she would return Lucas to her, his birth-mother, as long as Molly abides by certain conditions of the contract. When Molly discovers that Psyche is dying of cancer, she thinks there is more to this contract than meets the eye. Will Psyche keep her word or is this her final revenge for having an affair with Psyche's now-deceased husband?
Always the ambitious corporate businessman, Keegan McKettrick has a passion for the family business and little else. Keegan has not had much luck with women. His wife cheated on him, divorced him, took his money and daughter and still makes his life miserable with her devious games. The other McKettrick men may have found love, but Keegan is a heart-broken cynic. When he spots Psyche's maid putting Molly's baggage in his friend Psyche's car, he cannot believe the audacity of this disreputable woman. He decides to investigate Molly to protect Psyche even if he is also somehow drawn to Molly at the same time he despises her. If that was not enough, Keegan must also protect his own daughter Devon from her mother's (his ex-wife) secrets and manipulations.
The romance in this novel focuses on lost children, an adopted child soon to lose his last parent and the child of an unhappy marriage and divorced parents. As in her previous romances, I find it refreshing to see characters who do what is good for others and in the process discover what is good and right for their hearts. Linda Lael Miller has a real gift for healing broken hearts in her romances. This third romance has even more unusual and difficult situations but in creating more depth, the reader experiences the same McKettrick pleasure of her hero and heroine finding exactly what they need to heal the past even if the resolution is at least in some part unexpected.
I did not like this character. However, it is good reading material and
worth the time it took to read it. Get your hankies ready because it is
