Thank you, my readers, fans and friends, for voting for
BABIES IN THE BARGAIN at the Preditors and Editors Readers Poll where about 170 books were nominated for Best Romance Novel.

BABIES IN THE BARGAIN was also chosen by reviewers as 2009 Best Romance Winner at READERS FAVORITE.

Short Synopsis:
With only one year left to complete her medical training in Neonatology, Dr. Holly Collier vows not to let anyone mess up her sacrosanct schedule. Especially not the gorgeous Dr. Marc Suarez who broke her heart seven years ago.

When a tragic accident transforms the carefree playboy into a dedicated but novice father to his nephew, Holly gives in to her maternal instincts and turns her structured life upside down for the orphaned preemie. But can she learn to trust Marc again and believe in true love?
