Review of DADDY ON THE DOORSTEP by Judy Christenberry (see her website)
Silhouette Romance # 1654, April 2003
Andrea Avery left her husband for one very good reason. Despite his attempts at protection, she is pregnant--and despite everything he says, she will have the child. When a flood leaves Andrea and millionaire businessman Nicholas Avery stranded in his aunt's home, Andrea knows she needs to tell him the truth--the reason she left and what she needs if she is to return to being his wife. But Nick has problems of his own--his own father was cruel and alcoholic. Nick fears that he would be no better--and would rather be no father at all than the only kind of father he ever knew. That Andrea has withheld the truth from him won't help. Worse, though, is that their enforced togetherness is making Andrea think about how nice it would be to make a real family.
Author Judy Christenberry (see more BooksForABuck.com reviews of novels by Christenberry) delivers an emotionally compelling story of fear and growth. Only by taking a chance can Nick learn to love. Only by telling the truth can Andrea discover Nick's true feelings. Yet, the very actions that might bring them joy are also the actions that hold the largest risk. Christenberry's light style makes for a fast read, compelling the reader through to the final crisis--and beyond.
