THE BABY INHERITANCE
Hank Adams plans to leave Forest Glen, Wash., after building a potentially award-winning house. That's a relief to veterinarian Mia Barker, who doesn't want a noisy neighbor complicating her life. After Mia inherits a newborn, she comes to rely on Hank's experience with infants. A dark secret from Mia's childhood convinces her that she's meant to be a mother, while Hank's own past prevents him from getting close to anyone. Tightly written, and with tragically flawed characters, The Baby Inheritance (3) is an enjoyable read. Ann Roth maintains the chemistry between Hank and Mia while prolonging the sexual tension.
