Author: Cat Schield Title: The Black Sheep's Secret Child Publisher: Harlequin Desire Publish Date: Oct 1, 2016 Buy: Amazon Book Blurb: A second chance with her son's secret father!
Widow Savannah Caldwell faces the challenge of her life: begging Trent Caldwell—her former fling and late husband's brother—to save the family's ailing music business. That she's still attracted to Trent makes things hard; that Trent is her son's secret father makes things impossible!
Trent is fiercely proud of making his own fortune, despite his controlling father. And he's always believed his brother got the girl who should have been Trent's. Now he'll have the family business, and his brother's widow in the bargain. But will their romantic reunion be waylaid by Savannah's shocking baby secret?
Review: The Black Sheep's Secret Child reads like a soap opera. Secret father's, the heroine who was married to one brother while being married to another, a controlling grandfather, embezzling, the music industry and the tv industry, oh and don't forget the super rich.
There's nothing "real life" about this story, its pure fantasy, but it is quite as story. Savannah and her ex, Trent get it on fairly early on in the story, when she's trying to convince him to help her.
I could't really figure out how a reasonably intelligent woman would not tell the father of her baby that well, he was the father of her baby and at the same time think that it would be perfectly fine to enlist his help to save the family business that her son is a shareholder in.
It is the stuff of soap operas.
Savannah and Trent have great chemistry and a past history. It is hard to believe that Savannah ended up with his brother or why she'd even want to marry his brother. For a woman that was really strong in regards to some things, others made her seem really weak.
Again, this is the stuff of soap operas.
This was a quick enjoyable read, especially if you are the type that relishes watching shows like General Hospital and The Young and the Restless.
