HOPE'S CHILD (4.5) by Helen R. Myers: After the death of her fiance, Hope Alessandro Harrell puts a proposal before her good friend, police chief Lyon Teague. She wants him to marry her in order to protect her soon-to-be-born child from her ruthless father and the greedy hands of her late fiance's family. In return, she can help salvage his reputation, which has been unfairly tainted. Lyon accepts; he has deep feelings for Hope and always has. Though they enter a marriage of convenience, it is far from so, as their true feelings surface. Good storytelling, genuine, endearing characters with real troubles and a tender story about true love make this one not to pass up.
