I'm excited to be sharing Lisa Mondello's THE KNIGHT & MAGGIE'S BABY with you today.
Here is the blurb that's up on Amazon: Amazon or Barnes and Noble
Sometimes fate needs a little help…
Jonah Wallace knows what it’s like to grow up without love. Despite having more money than the Queen of England, his childhood was cold and stale as he grew up in boarding schools. He’s dedicated his life to helping homeless and displaced children find the love and support they need by creating the Haven House Foundation, work that resulted in him being Knighted by the Queen.
Now that he’s living in America, his work is going along just fine…until his grandfather gives fate a little nudge by insisting he take a wife before he can inherit.
Coffee shop owner, Maggie Bonelli, is pregnant and the baby’s dad has gone AWOL. She knows too well the pain of growing up without a daddy. So when Jonah Wallace comes into her shop proposing marriage for a year, she takes him up on his offer, even if it’s only for a year. Live in a mansion and give her baby a name and a daddy to call his/her own. But can they keep their perfect arraignment strictly business…or will fate’s helping hand bring them love at last?
I thoroughly enjoyed the story. It's a full-length novel, but I finished it in two sittings. The premise seems a little unusual, even though she gave each of them valid reasons for moving forward, but she carried it off. You understand each of their reasons and fall in love with the couple as they fall in love with each other. Oh, and if you want to know if they had a boy or a girl....well, you'll just have to read the book...down to the last twist that endears this man to any woman's heart.
The Knight and Maggie's Baby can be purchased today at: Amazon or Barnes & Noble
