Between duty, honorโ€ฆand a baby!

Six months. That's how long Rita Marchetti has mourned Jack Buchanan. Yet here he is, alive, standing in front of her, perfectโ€ฆand devastatingly sexy! Even more amazing is the former marine's admission that he wanted Rita to think he'd died. But the two of them are about to become three and Jack is back just in time.

That baby Rita is carrying is his. Despite the pain he holds so close to his heart, Jack can't walk away from his child. A marriage in name only would solve everything. Everything except a desire too deeply buried and too long deniedโ€ฆ

Reunited when she least expects it! A touching story about how the memories of the past can haunt someone’s life. Strong characters, but bittersweet because he was pushing her away the entire time instead of enjoying their growing connection. Ended well though!

Baker Rita Marchetti had an impetuous fling with a Marine on leave and lost her heart forever! She thought they had a future, but when she didn’t hear from him as promised, she assumed he had been killed at war. Without any contact info for him, she could only grieve the loss and rue the misfortune of meeting her love at the wrong time in life.

Jack Buchanan meets up with Rita again purely by happenstance, and he can’t believe she’s pregnant. He’s not sorry she thought he was dead. He feels dead, and he can no longer give her the future he promised. He doesn’t want anything to do with her or their baby, but he refuses to let the baby be born without his name. A temporary marriage in name only with a quick annulment after the birth will fix that!

      It’s a good read Lori! ๐Ÿ™‚ And yes, he makes his way home and reconnects with her, then finds out about the baby and wants to marry her … there’s a happy ending with lots of twists and turns along the way.
