His Daughter’s Guardian

Former marine captain Giles Wainwright had seen his share of battles. When the military man turned multimillionaire learned he had a baby girl, he vowed to go to war to keep her. But Mya Lawson had her late sister’s last will and testament on her side and was prepared to fight for custody.

Mya was only following her sister’s last wishes to have Lily raised in their childhood hometown. She’d grant Giles the visitation he was due. Yet as he dropped his arrogant stance and made Lily his priority, Mya’s guarded emotions were swayed. Giles’s offer of marriage to make them a true family was tremendously tempting. But was his proposal genuine or a bid to claim Lily forever?

 

For the baby’s sake! The latest from Rochelle Alers is an easy, enjoyable read about an adorable baby that everyone wants a chance to love. The characters are likable from the start with a well laid out backstory, but the lack of conflict was a bit unrealistic. I kept waiting for a wrench to fall into their happy-go-lucky life, but other than one little spat, things were fairly calm and steady. Definitely a fun read!

When Marine Captain turned multi-million dollar real estate developer Giles Wainwright finds out he has a daughter out there that he knew nothing about, he steps up and wants her by his side. The only problem is, her mother left instructions in her will that she wants her sister to raise her in their hometown of Wickham Falls, WV. He’s a busy man based out of New York City and traveling constantly to his development projects in the Caribbean … how is this going to work??

Mya Lawson is blindsided when a month after her sisters death, a codicil to her will beckons Giles to a reading to inform him that he’s a father. Sammie refused to tell her who he was and was adamant that she wanted Mya to raise her … so why is she springing a daddy on her out of thin air? Giles claims he wants to do things her way and is there by their side to get to know Lily instantly, but she can’t help but be suspicious. He seems too good to be true!
