Psychologist Dr. Juliana Cane sees Michael "Shay" Shaylen for the first time since college eight years ago when she could not deal with his adrenaline rush dangerous lifestyle and left him and Dallas for New Mexico. She realizes her body still needs his and that he apparently remains a sports participating junkie around the world. Shay contacted her because he needs her help since his best friends and GGS Aerospace partners Grant and Donna Greene recently died and trusted him as their almost six-month old baby Mikey’s guardian.

If she gives him two months of intense daddy training, he offers her anything. Juliana agrees for $50K and the writing of a book. A billionaire Shay wonders if she knows how rich he is but reluctantly agrees as the book bothers him but demands she stays at his house for two months. At his home, both quickly know they still love one another and each realizes they also love Mikey. However, Shay’s risk taking remains a non-starter between them.

This Billionaires & Babies contemporary romance is a delightful second chance at love. Each participant in the lead triangle is fully developed so that the readers understand why Juliana struggles between her love for Shay and her fears he will not return from one of his escapades. However, she quickly knows leaving the two males she loves will be even harder than when she left Shay eight years ago. Filled with pathos and passion, The Baby Deal is a warm amusing tale.
