4.5 Star Review – The Army Doctor’s Baby

I recommend this book.

I enjoyed this book by Helen.  This book includes passion, laughs, heartache, and sweet romance.

After returning from Afghanistan he finds Olivia, his brother’s ex-girlfriend, holding a baby in his parents’ house.  He is wondering what she is doing there.  Does she want the family to support her?  Is the baby really Cameron’s and how can they be sure without a DNA test as Cameron told him there was no way the baby was his.  He calls Cameron to find out if the baby could be his.  Cameron states maybe it could be.  Radley tells him to get home and take care of the baby and Olivia.

As Radley gets to know Olivia over the next few weeks he realizes that she is a beautiful woman inside and out.  That she was not trying to trap Cameron.  Radley and Olivia fall in love.  Radley also loves the baby “George” named after Cameron and Radley’s father.  Now after weeks of no word Cameron is on his way home to see the baby.  Will Olivia go back to Cameron when he returns home? 

Radley goes away for the time Cameron is home but while away he gets called back to Afghanistan.  What will Olivia think with him gone and only a few text’s every once in a while stating I Love You.  Will she believe that they can be together or will she lose faith in him since he is gone?

Army doctor, Major Cameron Knight, thrives on the danger of front-line Battlefield medicine. Throwing himself into saving the lives of injured servicemen keeps the demons from his past away. When he rescues charity worker, Alice Conway, and a tiny newborn baby, he longs for a second chance to do the right thing, even if it means marrying a woman he barely knows so they can take the orphan baby to England for surgery. The brave, beautiful young woman and the orphan baby steal his heart. He longs to make the marriage real, but being married to an army officer might do her more harm than good.

The Army Doctor’s Baby

 

Alice Conway was holding a baby and ended up breaking her arm while running from the enemy.   The baby needs surgery to fix his lip.  If the mother had she not died in childbirth she would not have touched the baby anyway.  The village people believed that a child born with a deformity was cursed and so is the mother after that.  Alice would not leave him behind.

Major Cameron Knight just rescued a charity worker.  While she is healing he is working and looking in on the baby.  As the days go by and Alice heals Cameron feels drawn to her.  She finds him attractive but she is trying to fight it.  He is a medic who is serving his country.  She needs to learn to take care of her baby so she can get him home.

In order to get the surgery she has to adopt the baby “Sami”.  The government in that country only lets married people adopt children so she has to be married.  Cameron decides he will marry her so she can take Sami home and get his surgery. 

Once home they spend time together Cameron feels torn as he is growing close to both Sami and Alice but what if Alice doesn’t want him or his help.  He is also feeling guilt and anger at himself for giving up his son to his brother even though it was for the best.  What will Alice think if she finds out he gave up his own son?

When the adoption process starts Cameron realizes that his job is making the process harder.  Should he quit his job so Alice can keep her son?  Will he regret making the choice he thinks he has to make?  Will he end up alone or with Alice and Sami?

The Army Doctor’s Wedding

 

Kelly is still trying to get over Cameron as she was in love with him but she has a secret that she didn’t want to share so they broke up.  He has moved on and really so should she.  She still hangs out with him and pretends to be his friend but really should she?  Kelly’s friend Cameron has her dress up like a bunny to wish Sean a happy birthday.  After the party Sean asks Kelly if she will watch his twin girls while she is on vacation awaiting her new job.  Since she is a nurse it makes sense that they would be safe with her.

As they spend time together they grow closer.  They talk over Sean’s cases in the evenings and spend time with the girls during the days he is not working.  They get along great and she is falling in love with the girls. 

With Kelly getting ready to leave on a new job is it really worth getting involved?  As Kelly grows closer to Sean and the girls can she really leave them to take a job?  If she stays will Sean let her into his life and the girl’s lives?

Excerpt

I nod, and she makes her way down the hall that I now see is lined with photographs. My stomach tightens, but I figure that I need to get this over with if I’m going to be staying here. I walk towards them, stopping at the first picture. I’m guessing it’s from the day they first met, the time she told me about, because she’s giving him a playful frown while he’s grinning at her like he’s already half in love with her, which, to be honest, he probably was. I feel a slight twinge as I take in the picture, knowing that at that moment he had no idea how short of a life he was going to have with her. Hell, he probably wouldn’t have even cared, as long as he had her while he could. Shaking the thought out of my head, I browse each one. There are candid shots of them mixed throughout professional ones from events such as her graduation, Sierra and Jeremy’s wedding, and what looks like an engagement party. As I pass each picture, it’s becoming more real to me that she had a whole separate life before we reconnected. Strangely, I’m not bothered by it, seeing how happy she looks in these pictures, even though it was with another man and not me. I’ll admit that I was a little worried when she told me about their fighting, but looking at these pictures? I know Ty made her a happy woman, and I’m grateful that she had that while she could. Do I wish it had been me? Fuck yes, but what can you do? Coming to the last picture, I’m breathless as the image of Alexa in a wedding dress enters my vision. I’m moving in for closer inspection when she comes out of her room, stopping when she catches me. Her hand covers her mouth as she closes her eyes for a split second. She swallows hard before walking towards me. She reaches out her hand as if to touch my arm before pulling it back, obviously thinking better of it. “Jace, I… This is probably awkward, I’m sorry. I just… I wasn’t expecting you, and I don’t…” She trails off as she stares at the wall, glancing at the picture before turning her eyes towards the floor.

About the Author

I’m a twenty six year old book junkie who is also obsessed with sports. Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds are my teams! I work for the government during the day, hang out with Air National Guard on the weekends, and am married to a guy 15 inches taller than me. We’re quite the pair! We currently live right outside of Dayton, OH with our two cats. I’ve been reading since I was a kid. My mom was a librarian, so it was a given. Heck, she even made sure we watched Wishbone instead of the Smurfs. In 2011 when I graduated from college, my mom bought me a Nook, and then in the summer of 2012 I found this amazing site called Goodreads. I was introduced to so many amazing indie/self-published authors. After reading almost 400 books that year, my husband gave me the push to finally sit down and write my own. It was a rocky start, but over time the words started flowing and I couldn’t get Jace and Lexi out of my head. If I’m not writing or looking through tons of photos of hot men, all in the name of research, then you can probably find me curled up with my Kindle, ignoring the rest of the world. I love my sports almost as much as I love my books. My other obsessions include red wine, hot men, country music, and all things Grace Potter. I LOVE to hear from readers, so please feel free to contact via any social media site listed below.

 About Lindsay

 
Nearly every writer struggles to put together information about themselves, perhaps because we’re so used to detailing the lives and ways of others. For the most part I am a writer, editor, photographer, and all-around artist living in the wilds north of Toronto, Ontario. I thrive on the juxtaposition of beauty and grit, enjoy urban crawls, indie everything, and time well-spent in the woods.

~Synopsis~

A five-minute trolley ride, one troublemaking luggage, and two stolen identities. Six months later, two strangers discover they’re married. She wants an annulment. He has other plans. Being illegally hitched is about the only way Chase Lennox would ever be shackled to any woman. But when the multimillionaire playboy finds out he’s married to the woman who caused him to lose the biggest deal of his life, Chase decides before he gives his new wife an annulment, she’s going to help him close the deal he’d lost. Jessina Landi has a three-foot radius comfort zone. The last man she let into it cost her a lot more than a broken heart. And the huge debt she owes for that trust, well, it’s due.

There’s an annulment waiting at the end of their rainbow… well, that’s if they can get through the next two weeks without consummating the marriage.

“Finish getting ready. We’re outta here in a few minutes,” he said, then turned his back to her. She struggled to retort from the total body meltdown. “Are we heading back to your apartment?” “Yes,” he said just as he disappeared from the doorway. “Good.” She raised her voice. “You can drop me off at the bus stop then.” Chase’s head swayed back in the doorway. “Come again?” “I’m going home, but I’ll be back in time for Caplin’s arrival on Thursday.” Chase stepped back into the room. “Why do you want to go home?” The question caught her off guard. She’d assumed he’d be pleased to be rid of her. Nonetheless, telling him the truth wasn’t an option. “As you said, the only reason we needed to spend time together was so I could get to know you, so we can convince Caplin we’re married.” His forehead wrinkled. “And you feel like you know me now?” “Well enough to pull off a bullshit marriage, yes.” “Hmm.” He rubbed his chin, then dropped his hand and took a step toward her. His intense regard held her captive. She clung to those dark eyes, waiting for him to say something. “I don’t want you to go.” His low, husky words resonated in her ears. Her body hesitated, her heart skipped, and her nerves stammered. She was convinced that all of her senses had failed her, because she was sure she hadn’t heard him right. “What?” “There’re a few more things you need to know about me in order to successfully pull this off, Jessina.” Every single one of her senses came back to life as he approached her. “Will you stay here with me just one more night?” he asked, stopping in front of her. “So I can show them to you?” “What?” Heat flushed through her body once more. “What sort of things?” Dark, ravishing eyes dropped to her mouth as he drew a finger down the side of her cheek. It trailed along her neck, gently grazing her shoulder and caressing the length of her arm. “The sort of things I would do with my real wife.” He looked back up at her, his hand now settled on her hip. The weight of his touch caused her stomach to clench with desire. His hand shifted to the small of her back, and her next breath got caught in her throat. “I want to show you how my wife would make me feel when I’m this close to her.” He applied light pressure with his hand to her back, and the space between them descended. Their bodies became one. “Chase…” His name fell from her lips in a near whisper when his hardness pressed into her tight-with-desire belly. “Jessina…” he hissed back in a throaty murmur…
