ISBN: 978-0-373-75761-9
All small towns have their secrets. No one in Laramie, Texas knows about Sage Lockhart’s friends-with-benefits relationship with the handsome cowboy, Nick Monroe. However, Sage wants something more from Nick—something that could change the very nature of their arrangement. She wants to have his baby.

Nick has always wanted to take things with Sage to the next level. Having a child wasn’t exactly what he had in mind, but it’s an adventure he can’t refuse. Of course, neither of them realized just how complicated things could get.

Now, with a baby on the way and all of their careful plans unraveling, Sage and Nick must face the one secret they’ve been hiding from themselves…and from each other.

Review: The cover of this book is so cute, but the baby doesn't make an appearance until the book is very nearly finished. I'm not sure what goes through the minds of people at Harlequin when they design these books. 

Sage and Nick's story is a friends and lovers to parents story, but not in a traditional way. They are friends with benefits when the story starts and really have a good thing going, but Sage wants a baby, but not a husband, or she thinks she doesn't want a husband because she was hurt before.

Nick is a businessman that really thinks only about making money, but he enjoys his relationship with Sage, and he has more feelings for her than he wants to admit.

That's where the problem lies. Both love each other going in, especially when business dealings force them into marriage.

These are two people that are in love but are too foolish to admit it. It gives you a lot of moments where you want to shake one of them, mostly Sage, because she's the one that really pushes for this goofy kind of relationship, even when Nick goes all romantic on her.

This was a really cute quick read. Its heat level is a little more than I like in these seemingly family oriented novels.
