Secrets, Lies & Lullabies by Heidi Betts

 
I'm going to start by saying that I love Heidi Betts's books. Doesn't matter if its a Chicks with Sticks, a vampire Christmas story or a Harlequin Desire. This is her latest release, Secrets, Lies & Lullabies.
 
Jessica Taylor's life isn't what it used to be. Her family used to be a big name in making jewelry along with the Bajorans, but that has changed. The Bajorans pushed the Taylors out and now Jessica and her family do not live in the lap of luxury. Jessica is now a maid at a hotel. She's alright with that...until she finds herself alone with the head of Bajoran Designs..Handsome Alexander Bajoran. After mentioning the run in to her cousin, she is pushed into "helping" the  family by doing a little snooping...a little snooping couldn't hurt, could it? 
Alexander Bajoran doesn't realize that there is some bad blood between the sexy maid and his family. All he knows is that he is strongly attracted to this woman with the blue streak in her hair and ears full of earrings.  A dinner together in his room leads to a night of unforgettable passion! The morning light brings an empty side of the bed and very fond memories for him.
Until one year later when he finds himself with a bouncing baby with a note claiming he is the little tykes Daddy.
 
This book was just a joy to read. I love how Jessica has adapted to her life until she can't do it alone anymore.Not your typical Harlequin heroine..not many of them have the blue streak in her hair and multiple earrings...she was very much real. I also found Alex a charming hero to this story. He doesn't condemn Jessica. He's accepting of what is happening without flying off the handle. A man who looks into problems for solutions..not for blame. He has found a real gem and knows it. I love that!!

Secrets,Lies& Lullabies is a quick read and just what I was in the mood for. Get busy writing Heidi because I'm waiting to read them!
