About the Author
Jean C. Gordon's writing is a natural extension of her love of reading. From that day in first grade when she realized t-h-e was the word "the," she's been reading everything she can put her hands on. A former financial planner, Jean is as at home writing retirement- and investment-planning advice as she is writing romance novels, but finds novels a lot more fun.
She and her college-sweetheart husband tried the city life in Los Angeles, but quickly returned home to their native Upstate New York. They share a 170-year-old farmhouse just south of Albany, NY, with their daughter and son-in-law, two grandchildren, and a menagerie of pets. Their son lives nearby. While Jean creates stories, her family grows organic fruits and vegetables and tends the livestock de jour.
Although her writing and family don't leave her a lot of spare time, Jean likes to give back when she can. She and her husband team-taught a seventh-and-eighth-grade Sunday school class for several years and currently serve on her church's Evangelism Committee. She also shares her love of books with others by volunteering at the church's Book Nook.

A sweet story
Bachelor Father by Jean C. Gordon is a fun and fast read. Ms Gordon has delivered a well written book. Brett and Molly's story is filled with drama, humor, lovable characters and spice. I enjoyed Bachelor Father and look forward to reading more from Jean C. Gordon in the future. Bachelor Father is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
Really a great story of love and the agonizing decisions involving adoption being made
BACHELOR FATHER is, as others have said, a sweet romance. The version I read could've been better edited as some words and quotation marks were missing and the point of view switched without warning, leaving me confused. Molly started out as a jerk, an in-your-face social worker who was bound and determined to remove Brett's nephew from his home because Brett was single. But before the halfway mark she made a sudden switch to his side and came up with a rather shocking proposal when the agency she works for supported her previous agenda. There are some mild "bad" words in this book, and the Lord's name taken in vain, and some misuses of words as well as some obvious errors, such one woman being introduced as his sister (20% through the book), and the next the same woman his friend and lawyer. The characters were rather flat and undeveloped, but it was a decent read. I would not call this a Christian romance, but there is a mention of a cross necklace and getting married in a church and the hero is friends with a pastor. Some more conservative readers will be offended by some of the content. If you like sweet romances that are not Christian or if you don't care whether they are Christian or not, this is a book to consider.
