Book Blurb: Ever since Dr. Dillon Traub arrived at Thunder Canyon Resort, tongues have been wagging about the chemistry zinging between the Texas oil tycoon and his new receptionist. Those broad shoulders of his may be awfully tempting…but single mom Erika Rodriguez knows better than to give in to her attraction to the handsome bachelor doctor.

So why is the sought-after playboy going out of his way to prove to the love-burned Erika that he'd make the ideal husband—and perfect father to her adorable baby girl? Stay tuned, dear readers, to see if the town's favorite new physician will be heading back home. Or if this Dr. Daddy is writing a prescription for lifetime happiness!

Review: This book was truly cringe-worthy. I thought it would be cute, but instead it was 100% predictable. There was absolutely nothing that would leave you guessing with this book. Anytime there was some conflict the outcome was so easy to figure out that it was not even worth turning the page.

Since I was looking for a quick read, I finished this. I don't think I would have otherwise. The characters just didn't do it for me, and because this was a Special Edition and a more family oriented series from Harlequin, the sex was practically non-existent.

The worst of it was the story spent more time dwelling on Erika's bad luck with men and the town gossip then developing the character of her baby daughter, who might have brought some life into this otherwise dull story.

The highlight of this story was when Zane, a country music star, and friend of Dillon's comes to perform at Frontier Days. He seemed to be the only high point in the story, and his character had some spunk, which was lacking everywhere else.

This is a book I'd pass on, if I had the choice to do it all over again.
