I love to read the Silhouette Special Edition line and Teresa Southwick is an author that I stumbled upon and I really liked. This book is the first book in a series called The Men of Mercy Hospital. I thought the novel was good and at times there were some spots where I just couldn’t but it down. The heroine Kate Carpenter is an E.R. nurse at Mercy Medical hospital and she is also the mother of a baby boy whose father doesn’t know about him. The hero Joe Morgan is a helicopter pilot and on-duty marine who got Kate pregnant but didn’t know about it because he had to leave on a marine mission before Kate found out about her pregnancy. When Joe comes back from his mission because he got seriously hurt and has nightmares from his tramatic experience he goes to Kate’s apartment and finds out that he is the father of a healthy baby boy named JT. Kate and Joe have a lot of things to work out with one another because Joe wants to be a father to JT. They both need to learn more about one another if they want to raise a child together but they have issues that may cause them serious trouble. Well I love this novel and I really look forward to reading more about the Men of Mercy Medical because I know that there will be all interesting stories. Here are the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
WHEN A HERO COMES ALONG $ 4.99 (Book 1)(217 Pages)
THE RETURN OF THE FATHER
When Joe Morgan showed up again on Kate Carpenter’s doorstep, the E.R. nurse didn’t know what to think. After Kate had discovered she was pregnant, she’d waited to her from the helicopter pilot and on-duty marine. Nothing. So why would the man who had left without a second glance suddenly return to her life?
Joe wanted to be a father to J.T., and Kate wouldn’t stand in his way. She couldn’t know that during Joe’s harrowing tour of duty, thinking of his son—and of her—had kept him alive. But would the demons of the past prevent Joe from repairing the damage to Kate’s heart—and embracing his family for keeps?
