BABIES AND BADGES
While driving back from the wedding of the girl who two-timed and jilted him, sheriff Noah Wheeler stops to aid a woman in labor, Cassandra Tremont. A rich widow who found out her husband led a double life, Cassie has immersed herself in her interior design work. Trust is a touchy issue since both Noah and Cassie have been burned, but a bond is forged when he saves the mother and her twins. Laura Marie Altom's Babies and Badges (3) scores points for original twists on run-of-the-mill fare and the leads share chemistry.
