The Texas Rancher’s Vow. Rancher Matt Briscoe arrives at sculptor Jen Carson’s Austin gallery to persuade her not to marry his sexagenarian dad Emmett who in the last decade wed an actress, a novelist and a violinist. She insists her arrangement is business as his father has commissioned her to create plaques. She does not want a sugar daddy having been divorced once. However, she is attracted to the son who wants her too.

Found: One Baby. Lawyer Michelle Anderson finishes her run when she notices someone left a gift on the porch of ER Dr. Thad Garner. Not thinking anything of it as he has received presents left there before, she hears a baby cry. As she picks up the baby boy, he comes out of his house. They parent William and he soon wants to adopt the baby while she wants the three of them to be a family.

Although neither plot is new, the compelling characters make for a pair of fun contemporary romances. Note that Found: One Baby is a bonus reprint.
