As a powerful Dallas oil executive, planning is what Lizzie Baron does best. But she certainly didn’t plan on getting pregnant following one memorable night after a rodeo in Fort Worth. Now she needs to figure out how she’s going to raise a baby with a man she barely knows.
Aspiring bronc rider Chris Miller always hoped he’d see Lizzie again, though not quite like this. The pregnancy is a surprise—and so is finding out she’s a member of the powerful Baron clan—but the more Chris gets to know Lizzie, the more he realizes he wants to be with her. When Lizzie learns Chris works for a rival company, she feels betrayed. Can two perfect strangers trust each other enough to become the perfect family?
For once I actually managed to pick up a review book that is the first in a series!
On that note, this is very obviously the first in a series, with lots of future storylines introduced. However, with most of the focus of the book on the two main characters, this isn’t an issue that is going to annoy you.
I’m not usually a big fan of any of the three main features of this story: cowboys, pregnancy and rich Texans. Yet in this book I quite liked reading about all three. What made this one work for me was that the characters were genuinely nice, good people.
“Why are you so nice to me?”
“Maybe because I don’t see a reason not to be.”
Mature, responsible, decent characters! I liked it, and it illustrated what a rarity it is to have people like this in these books! Yes, at the end there’s a big misunderstanding of sorts, but it was resolved quickly and it didn’t annoy me as it usually would.
The Texan’s Baby is more or less what you would expect from a story in this line. And yet it is different. I’ve read a few books by Donna Alward, but I think this is the best one I’ve read by her so far.
