The Paternity Factor

(1998)
A novel by

 
 
Talk about fate! Just as her teaching job ends for the summer and her rental condo is sold out from under her, fortune smiles on Jessy Ross--in the form of an adorable toddler named Chloe. Jessy's girlhood crush, Shane Wyatt, recently widowed, has learned the secret of his daughter Chloe's paternity. Reeling, he has withdrawn from his family, his friends, and most importantly, from Chloe, and has buried himself in work. Jessy volunteers to move in and take care of Chloe until she can find another place to live. Forced to spend time together in close quarters, Jessy finds little evidence of the kind, caring boy who was her adolescent knight in shining armor. And Shane, despite his best efforts to ignore Jessy, finds himself hard-pressed to recognize the shy, gawky girl he knew so long ago in the now ripe, passionate woman sleeping in his house and coaxing Chloe out of her shell. When Jessy lays siege to the walls protecting Shane from his hurt and disillusionment, he learns that love has nothing to do with genes and everything to do with opening your heart. Clever dialogue, emotion-packed interactions and steamy interludes make this one another winner for veteran Desire author Caroline Cross. --Alison Trinkle
