Happy Sunday everybody! I've recently completed the edits for my upcoming release, The Playboy's Baby, so decided I'd take this week's six from that. It's due out the beginning of August. No cover yet, but here's the blurb:
They share a past—one neither of them can forget.When an accident leaves her guardian to her six month old niece, Emma Stanton must return to her small hometown of Hastings, Montana to find the one man she’s spent the last eight years trying to forget. Not only must she share the news of her sister’s tragic death, but she must also risk the only family she has left as she tells him he’s the baby’s father. Can she stick to her resolve and resist the playboy’s charms—again?All wealthy nightclub owner Dillon James wants is to be the father his daughter needs. He’s been used for his name and money one too many times in his life and has no desire to risk his heart to love again. Yet falling for Emma as they struggle to share the duties of raising a baby has Dillon thinking that perhaps it’s time he took a chance on love.But will Emma agree?
I had originally chosen something from the beginning, but then remembered today was Father's day. So, in honor of the day, I've decided this week's snippet should be the moment when Dillon first meets his daughter.There's just something about a man holding a baby, isn't there? Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to go read all the other wonderful snippets at the Six Sunday website!
Annie leaned back in his arms and the two of them regarded each other. Dillon smiled. When she laid a chubby hand against his mouth, he opened his lips and pretended to eat her fingers, making, “nom nom nom” sounds, eliciting a hearty giggle. That heart-stopping grin spread across his mouth and awe illuminated his eyes.
Emma’s heart ached, tears burning behind her eyelids. Father and daughter together at last.
