Scandal on His Doorstep (A Most Peculiar Season, #2) by Deborah Hale

Three Noblemen and a Baby!

A baby is left on Jack Warwick’s doorstep. And the notorious rake doesn’t know if the child is his. Jack shares a Mayfair town house with two friends, and a note left with the baby suggests one of the three bachelors is the father…but which one? And who will care for the child until they can locate her mother?

Jack can think of only one woman he would trust with such a delicate task. Annabelle Robb, the penniless widow of his cousin, has been too proud to accept his financial support. Enlisting her help with the baby is the perfect excuse to provide for the woman who was once his dearest friend.

Annabelle agrees, with great reluctance. She cannot turn her back on an abandoned child, for both she and Jack know the pain of being unwanted. Yet she fears rekindling her old feelings for him, which were once far more than friendly…until he broke her heart

Though Jack cannot be certain he is the baby’s father, his growing affection for the child makes him vow to reform his ways. Yet the more time he spends with Annabelle, the more he is torn between a sense of duty to find and marry the child’s mother …and his growing desire for Annabelle!

Received a copy of this book for an honest opinion. I am a sucker for a story like this one. Love lost and rekindled at a time that is least convenient. Jack and Ann were portrayed in a way that you not just read about their frustrations and longings. The words on the page drew me in. I could not wait to read the next chapter. Am not an individual who likes to ruin the story for others who may want to read it. I will say that this book is worth reading.
