Overview

Cynical, jaded, practical-minded attorney Jake Chastaine is still grieving his late wife two years after her death when he discovers that due to a mistake at a fertility center where she received treatment, a woman he's never met has had his baby. Jake is determined to play a role in his child's life. He's chagrined to discover, however, that the mother of his child is as appealing as she is impractical. A gorgeous redhead, Annie is a free spirit who raises llamas, reads tea leaves and believes her dead grandfather talks to her through highway billboards. Worst of all, she makes his body temperature soar in a most illogical manner.

When his law partner and former father-in-law threatens to ruin Annie in a misguided attempt to help him acquire custody of the child, Jake decides that the best way to handle the situation is to enter into a short-term marriage of convenience. They both get far more than they bargained for, and learn a life-changing lesson about the power of love.

    Baby, Oh, Baby by Robin Wells

    Two years ago, Jake Chastaine had it all. A brilliant law career, wealth, and a beautiful wife. Then it all came crashing down when his parents and wife were killed in a car crash. Just as he's starting to move on, he discovers the fertility clinic he and his wife attended used his sample to get another woman pregnant. Anne Hollister enjoys her peaceful life on an Oklahoma ranch with her daughter. Until a stranger shows up claiming to be Madeline's father and wanting to be a part of her life. Can these two work things out for the better of a little girl? And can both move on from their past to love again?

    This was first published in 2001. Wells got her rights back and republished this story with a few modern corrections and additions. If, like me, you enjoy Wells, this is a must read, even if you read the previous addition.

    Wells writes with humor and wit, and with such an underlying sadness and reality you just get sucked right in. These two characters were smart and relatable. There was no misunderstanding and they resolved issues like adults. There wasn't a second that went by where I didn't root for them. These two deserved a happy ending. The daughter was adorable, and the secondary characters, Tom and Susannah, added to the story. The setting was detailed and researched. Most notable was this was a very dialog-driven plot that never lagged. Not to be missed.
