ISBN: 9780373657407

In the elegant La Casa Paloma Hotel in Red Rock, Texas, two people alone on New year’s Eve meet. Lia and Shane share a midnight kiss that leads to a wonderful one-night stand.

Not long after acting out of character, Natalia Serrano finds herself carrying the stranger’s baby. She cannot tell him as she only knows his first name. Shane Fortune returns to Red Rock for the first time since his delightful New Year ’s Eve tryst with Lia. When they meet for the second time, she tells him she is carrying his baby and just wants him to be a father to their child as she knows it is his hard it is to be raised without a dad. Distrusting everyone since his father recently betrayed him, Shane wonders if Lia is setting him up to pay child support for someone else’s kid as he considers that his need for her to be honest may paint her true intentions.

Though a serious dramatic contemporary, Expecting Fortune’s Heir will remind readers of the comedic movie Fools Rush In as two cultures collide over a pregnancy. Although the romance feels abruptly rushed at the end, readers will enjoy this engaging tale as The Fortunes of Texas unborn next generation plays matchmaker between two recalcitrant soon to be parents.
