About the Baby, Tome 1 : L'enfant de l'hiver



Description ajoutée par Underworld 2019-02-06T12:46:48+01:00

Résumé

Au lendemain de sa première nuit d'amour avec Emily, une nuit pleine de promesses, Ben découvre une photo qui ruine brutalement sa certitude d'avoir enfin rencontré la femme de sa vie. Car la photo et les quelques mots griffonnés au dos ne laissent hélas aucun doute : loin d'être la merveilleuse inconnue qu'il pensait, Emily est la fille du pire ennemi de Ben, Mackenzie, l'homme qui a délibérément causé sa ruine... L'a-t-elle volontairement abusé, manipulé ? Déchiré entre la rage et la passion, blessé dans son orgueil comme dans ses sentiments, Ben refuse d'entendre les explications d'Emily, et rompt, jusqu'à ce que, quelque temps plus tard, un événement redistribue les cartes pour Ben : Emily est enceinte de lui. S'il trouve le moyen de la forcer à l'épouser, il tiendra l'occasion inespérée de se venger des mensonges de la jeune femme – mais aussi de briser à son tour MacKenzie en lui volant sa fille et l'enfant qu'elle porte.

Description en VO :

What does an unexpected baby bring? A marriage of convenience? A reconciliation? A rejection like no other? NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay delivers an emotional series, About the Baby, filled with sizzling romance, heartfelt pregnancy and baby scenes, and a unique look at the healing power of forgiveness.

In a TIME TO GIVE, Ben Cassidy has lost everything. A former CEO of a company he built and benefactor of a soup kitchen he started, he was tricked by an unethical vulture capitalist who cheated him out of everything. Ben hit the skids, but now is trying to get his act together. He allows himself to go to the soup kitchen as a guest once a week because it’s the single thing left of his accomplishments.

Emily is a volunteer at the soup kitchen and attracted to Ben from day one. But she suppresses her feelings because he’s a guest. For months, she keeps her distance but one night, when she gives him a ride home, they end up in bed together.

That one encounter changes everything between them until Ben learns two things: she’s the daughter of the man who destroyed him. And she’s also pregnant.

Follow these two people in their struggle to accept each other, their circumstances and the deep attraction they share. Poignant scenes involving all the characters reveal how difficult it is to repair broken promises and unrealized dreams.

His only love sprang from his only hate...

Isn't that just like life to mirror something out of Romeo and Juliet? And Benedict Cassidy has good cause to hate Emily Mackenzie's father - the corporate pirate stole his company. So what if Emily's pregnant with Ben's child? Or that he can't help loving her? She's still a traitor and the daughter of a traitor. And forgiveness doesn't come easily to Ben.

If Emily hadn't agreed to marry him, he'd have fought the woman for custody once the baby was born. Instead, he's going to watch his wife like a hawk until he's got his business back and his child safely in his arms.
