QUARTERBACK DADDY (4) by Linda Barrett: Financially strapped after her sister's murder leaves her with a baby to care for, attorney Alexis Brown is forced to reach out to local celebrity quarterback Dan Delito for help. Alexis' sister named him as baby Michelle's father with her dying breath, and when the DNA results come back positive, Dan wants full custody. Alexis is heartbroken over losing her niece. Will Dan realize that neither he nor Michelle can live without Alexis? Barrett takes a classic plot and bolsters it with charming -- and flawed -- characters. Dan's possible drinking problem due to the loss of his own wife a few years earlier and Alexis' inability to let go of the past create compelling conflict.
