OUTBACK BABY MIRACLE
Genre: Series, Harlequin Romance, Current Series Imprints
One night with jackaroo Jake Connors leaves veterinary student Laila Robbins pregnant and struggling to maintain her independence. Jake's repeated proposals -- and her family's pointed suggestions that she accept them -- fall on deaf ears. Laila swears she won't marry Jake until he can truthfully say that he's happy about the baby. That isn't likely to happen because of what Jake lost in the past -- a wife and a child. Melissa James' Outback Baby Miracle (3) has an explosive conflict and well-defined characters, but the story is mainly a cyclical argument between Jake and Laila. Jake's inertia has some poignancy, but it gets thin quickly.
