The Daddy Verdict

After my last read, I decided I needed a pick me upper. I decided to go rummage through my Harlequins and Silhouettes, and I came up with this one, The Daddy Verdict by Karen Rose Smith.

Here’s the blurb:
By-the-book lawyer Ben Barclay didn't make mistakes—especially not one-night-stand mistakes. So when he learned that his lone reckless act with a beautiful stranger had lasting consequences, he was determined to do the right thing

And that meant marriage.

When Sierra Girard learned she was pregnant she didn't expect Ben to be part of her life. So she was stunned at his insistence that they be husband and wife—if only for the sake of the baby. But even cautious Sierra couldn't deny the smoldering embers of attraction that burned bright. It was a fire that could almost be mistaken for true love.…

I enjoyed both the hero and the heroine. Ben and Sierra have one night of passion, she becomes pregnant. She wants to do the right, and lets Ben know. She's willing to care for the child on her own, and is surprised when Ben wants to be a part of the child's life. But can they make their marriage work.

Just want the doctor ordered! It was a short, a fast and good read. And for an added bonus it had some sizzle.
