Connor O'Leary knows nothing about babies, families, or good women, yet he's up to his ears in all three. Coming to Shadow Creek, Montana was meant to be a new start for this former oil rigger, but he had no idea that fresh beginning would include a baby on his doorstep and a hot nanny he can't stop thinking about. Diapers, feedings, and late nights soothing his little bundle of surprise were definitely not on his itinerary.

The last thing Haley Thomson expected to see is the reclusive Connor with a baby in his arms. Before she knows it, she's volunteered as nanny—temporarily. Helping out with baby Rosie is a dream come true and fills a space in her heart she believed will never be filled. But falling for Rosie's hot and sexy bachelor daddy is not on her to-do list…but boy would she ever like it to be...

Baby on the Bad Boy's Doorstep is a heartwarming little tale that is sure to strike a cord with romance readers, and leave them overjoyed!! It was a beautiful journey to watch unfold, and I highly recommend you take the ride with them as well, you will not be disappointed!” –Misty P., Goodreads

“Once again, Ms. James has written a wonderful, clean story that is fraught with emotions and has a ridiculously satisfying happily ever after!” –Heather P., NetGalley

I love the little town of Shadow Creek that author Victoria James has created and I was so excited to see we were going back for Connor O'Leary's story! You'll want to grab a copy of this one and fall in love with these characters the same way I did.  I highly recommend it!” –Bette H., Goodreads

“I loved this book and am hooked on the series because of the weighty topics undertaken in each story. It’s one of misery and exultant triumph despite obstacles that feel insurmountable. Connor and Hayley didn’t always make the right choices in the moment but there weren’t any cliched behaviors either. I didn’t want the story to end and embraced those feel-good moments.” –Jonetta A., Goodreads

Domestic violence in life and in books is an extremely touchy topic for me. I hate the fact that authors and publishers put the subject in their books but don’t mention ways for people to get help. It’s like the topic is put in the book to make a story in order to make money and they don’t care that ...more

Gosh!!! I love Victoria James and her Montana romances. Her Shadow Creek series is just filled with so much warmth, friendship and love, they are a treat to read. And if they have protagonists like Conner O'Leary and Haley Thompson, more the pleasure of reading a sweet romance.

This is another sweet romance (no naughty business) from Victoria James.

While the hero of this book, Connor, is not really a bad boy, you do get a sense of the entire plot of the book from the title.

About the author

NY Times Best Selling, USA Today Best Selling Author

Victoria James

I always knew I wanted to be a writer and in grade five, I penned my first story, bound it (with staples) and a cardboard cover and did all the illustrations myself (if you've ever seen my drawings you'll know how horrible they must have been. I still draw stick figures). Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again. In high school I fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, I married my own hero, pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened my own business. After the birth of our first child, I knew it was time to fulfill the dream of writing romantic fiction. I'm a hopeless romantic who is living my dream, penning happily-ever-after's for my characters in between managing kids and the family business. Writing on a laptop in the middle of the country in a rambling old Victorian house would be ideal, but I'm quite content living in suburbia with my husband, our two young children, and very bad cat.
