ISBN: 9780373755103

In Summit, Texas, land use rivals, geological engineer Ginger Rollins and die-hard environmentalist Rand McCabe, have a one nighter following a heated town hall meeting. Six weeks later Ginger informs Rand she is carrying his baby; he stuns her as he believes the child is his without a second thought. She further explains to him that if they are unmarried under Texas law, the newborn has no legal father. Ginger suggests a marriage of convenience, which she explains will lead to a divorce in nine months but ensure their baby legally has a sire. Rand accepts her proposal but conceals from Ginger that in his mind and heart this is a permanent arrangement as he knows their desire is more than just sexual attraction.

As the couple fall in love, conflict intrudes into their happy nest. Their jobs keep them at a constant state of strife, and family demand this pair and the baby Ginger carries to make it as a trio with an option on more children.

The fourth McCabe Homecoming (see The Texas Lawman’s Woman, The Texas Christmas Gift and The Long, Hot Texas Summer) is an engaging contemporary romance as two stubborn environmental adversaries fall in love. Although the path to permanency takes the obvious path, readers will appreciate this delightful Texas tale.
