Attending today's wedding, only a day after his divorce was finalized, pushes Jess Sheridan over his limits. He's determined not to stay in town long enough for the gossips to start about his marriage and all the things Susan had done behind his back. Everyone knew what she was doing except Jess, so Lorna Walters couldn't blame him for the look on horror on his face as he watched the new bride and groom as they celebrate their new marriage.
When Jess passes out after defending her honor, Lorna can't decide if having him there is good or bad. She's had a crush on him since she was thirteen and when he passes out in her bed, she leaves him to sleep off too much whiskey. That one thing leads to another shouldn't be much of surprise, but consequences will come as quite a surprise to the future Sheriff of Beauville when he returns to town in a few months. It'll be a little too late then to swear off alcohol.
When Jess unexpectedly appears at the diner where Lorna works, she is fortunately taking a break. While sitting at the booth, her pregnancy doesn't show. Of course Sheriffs have no trouble locating one's address, and when he shows up unexpectedly on Lorna's doorstep to apologize for six months ago, she still manages to conceal her pregnancy. But he will see it when he takes her dinner, and Beauville's a very small town. And since he knows she'd like to cancel, now all he's got to do is refuse to return her calls until he picks Lorna up for dinner...
Blame It On Babies is a wonderfully fun romp sure to provide irreverent entertainment for romance lovers in need of a good giggle. Sizzling action and memorable characters satisfy the most demanding reader. Kristine Rolofson creates a keeper with this quick, lively read. Very highly recommended!
