Overview

The Bachelor
Holt Landon was a high-powered corporate consultant accustomed to having all the answers in both his personal and professional life --but when a baby he never knew he'd fathered is dropped in his lap, he has nothing but questions.

The Bride
Stevie Stedquist was a parenting expert with a radio show, but when listeners learn she doesn't have any children of her own, her credibilty is suddenly on the line.

The Babe
Baby Isabelle needs a mother in the worst way. A temporary marriage between her newfound father and Stevie would solve the problem, but they seem terribly mismatched. Fortunately, Baby Isabelle has two aces up her diaper: opposites attract, and her daddy isn't the only babe magnet in the family.

I began reading The Babe Magnet early in the morning of a day in which I had a full agenda, but I eventually sacrificed everything I had planned because I couldn¿t put the book down. The plot is ingenious. And, of course, Robin really knows her babies and thus has created one of the most likeable baby characters you¿ll ever read about. I liked the intricate plot elements that all came together at the end of the story. The secondary characters are well developed and lovable and almost comprise stories of their own. This book brought tears of joy and tears of sorrow to my eyes. It is truly a comedy in every sense of the word. The whole time I was reading Babe Magnet, I kept thinking: this would make a great movie. I also enjoyed reading about all the famous New Orleans locales, such as: Café du Monde, Jackson Square, Commander¿s Palace, Tulane University, Windsor Court Hotel, Aquarium of the Americas, Arnaud¿s Restaurant, Lake Pontchartrain, and St Charles Avenue, to mention only a few. Robin¿s eloquent manner of expression is tops in Babe Magnet. Witness the passage: ¿...the twenty-story vantage point of his Canal Street office gave an unobstructed view of the Mississippi River¿s crescent curve at the foot of the French Quarter¿. Babe Magnet is a great book. Anyone reading it would love it and would be glad they had read it. Don¿t let another day go by without reading Babe Magnet. I recommend it very highly.

The call from a Dallas police officer informed Holt Landen that not only had Ella Sinclair died in a car crash, but the heiress named him as the father of her child. He barely remembers the flighty woman he had a one night stand with in Aspen, but the DNA proves he is also the father of a six month old child Isabelle with her. Holt leaves New Orleans to pick up his daughter only to learn that his daughter suffers from Attachment Disorder.................................... Holt is desperate for help so when Isabelle stops crying while hearing New Orleans radio parenting advice show host Stevie Stedquest speak on the radio, he offers the childless Stevie a deal. They wed in a marriage of convenience in which she provides Isabelle with proper loving nurturing and she has that child she wants to raise. However, Stevie and Holt are opposites in every foreseeable way except that Isabel has hooked both of them. Now can the baby play matchmaker when neither of the two adults wants the other though love has blossomed between Stevie and Holt.................................... THE BABE MAGNET is an intriguing contemporary romance even with using the Stone Age gimmick of a marriage of convenience and a traumatized baby to bring the lead couple together. Though obviously opposites, Holt and Stevie are caring people, who readers will like since both try to do the right thing for Isabelle. However, the infant owns the show as she is unable to allow anyone to reach out to the darkness with love that is until her daddy and her new mommy shower her with affection because everybody needs hugs......................

Holt can barely remember Ella Sinclair. Yet, his is the name she left to call in an emergency, and the Dallas Police Department considered her death just that since she left behind an infant daughter, Isabel. Holt Laden is listed as the father, although all they shared was a quick affair. ....................... New father Holt is clueless. Isabel is fussy, but a ray of light comes when she responds to a voice on the radio. Stevie Stedquest may not have any children, but she is the acknowledged radio version of Dr Spock. Holt contacts her for help, and then goes a step further. He proposes to the lovely young lady. Unlike Holt, Stevie believes marriage is until death do us part, so an inconvenient marriage of convenience is not something she normally would consider. But Isabel needs her and she has come to love... Isabel. The fact that Holt is charming and handsome is immaterial. The rules are to be followed exactly, no fooling around with anyone until the marriage is over and Isabel has adjusted to things. Neither counted on the magnetism between them. ................... *** You get three romances for the price of one in this winsome book. The serious topics of commitment and love are humorously addressed in a light and easy to read manner. Each character, except Isabel, gets to deal with their own ghosts and exorcise them in the best way. If only reality could mirror fiction, life would go more smoothly. ***
