THE DUKE'S BABY
Visiting Brittany to complete her late husband's book on Arthurian legend, Andrea Fallon is drawn to ex-soldier Lance Malbois, despite his initial behavior and unfounded suspicions toward her. When Andrea learns she's pregnant -- by her husband -- Lance proposes, not just for Andrea's sake but also to defuse the situation with his unstable stepsister, who expects to marry him. Andrea's tempted by Lance but wonders
if what they have is a sound basis for
a marriage. Rebecca Winters' The Duke's Baby (3) has a certain emotional resonance, but there's not much spark between Lance and Andrea, and the most interesting character is the over-the-top villainess.
