Welcome to Sugarbeat’s Books!
Today we are going to be talking about The Billionaire’s Unexpected Heir by Kathie DeNosky. I have a subscription to Harlequin Blaze. I like getting 4 of these little books every so often! They are short and spicy and fit in my purse quite easily. Because I have this subscription, Harlequin periodically sends me free books to try and then answer a questionnaire. This time around, I got 4 copies of the book with the suggestion to give them away.
So, I’m going to do that – the first 4 people (US and Canada only please) who leave a comment with an email address will get a copy of one of these cute little books!

Becoming the new owner of Hickory Hills Thoroughbred farm was not in billionaire Jake Garnier’s plans. Becoming a father was even more unimaginable. For his new business came with one Heather McGwire, ranch manager…and mother to Jake’s secret child.
After barely surviving his own father’s desertion, Jake knew he couldn’t walk away from his responsibilities. Marriage seemed the only solution. Yet Heather wouldn’t settle for simple sweet talk and seduction. If Jake wanted a real family, he’d have to saddle up for the long ride.
Heather McGwire and Jake Garnier shared a night some time ago that resulted in Heather’s pregnancy. After many failed attempts to reach Jake, she resigned herself to single motherhood. She has a good job as the Manager of Hickory Hills Thoroughbred Farms. She just organizes her work around the new baby and continues on. One day, Jake arrives at the ranch as the new owner. Her life is about to change. It seems that the baby, Mandy, has the same unique eyes as Jake and must be his child. Jake’s life is also about to change!
This was an entertaining little book. I found out after reading it that is the last book in a series, but that didn’t interfere in my understanding of the story. I like the “suddenly you are a daddy” type story lines as it is interesting to see what an author does with that type of high stress situation. This particular author created a realistic and heartwarming story of a man ready to change his life and go in a new direction. The characters of Heather and Jake were well written. The chemistry between them was great, and the development of their relationship was interesting to read. What I liked most, was the cast of secondary characters. The housekeeper, Clara Buchanan who takes on the additional role of nanny to Mandy. The siblings and spouses add a depth to Jake that is interesting to read – as well as make me want to look for the previous book in this series. The description of the people at the various parties was excellent! So vivid that I could picture them. This book is well worth a few hours of entertainment!!
As I said at the beginning, I have four copies to give away to US and Canadian addresses. Just leave me a comment with an e-mail address to get hold of you! Thanks for the visit!
