Jessica Adams may have inherited the family construction business, but there are strings attached. Big, deal-breaking strings. The big wig to whom her grandfather had already agreed to sell the company? Daniel Spencer, her ex-lover…and the father of her seven-year-old son. Only, he doesn’t know.

What started as a standard business acquisition turns Daniel's world inside out. Leaving Jessica was the biggest mistake of his life. A mistake that compounds when he meets her son. Correction—their son. He might need a crash course in parenting, but that doesn’t stop him from laying everything on the line to put together a much different kind of merger—if he can convince Jessica to trust him with her life…and their son’s.


"Debut novels don't usually turn out to be awesome, only a few do, and this book is one of those few that actually gets a thumbs up from me, and the fact that it's a second chance romance trope, I'm all giddy with this book."-- Mischievous Reads

"It was sweet, funny and heartwarming."--Mandy, Goodreads

"A contemporary big business takeover or, as the title suggests, A Merger of the Heart is the theme for this romance which is an easy read."--Elaine, Goodreads

"Fabulous characters and a great story line. I love it when I get so lost in a story that I lose track of time. I will be keeping an eye on this fabulous author and her wonderful books."--Cheryl Sanders, Goodreads

I love books where a man finds out he has a child he didn't know about. Daniel and Jessica had a very brief romance and don't see each other again for 8 years. When Jessica's grandfather dies and Daniel is involved in trying to take away her grandfathers business, the two reconnect. Daniel doesn't k ...more

I'm a bit of a stickler when it comes to books that have the Surprise! You're a Dad storyline. Simply because the heroines tend to irritate me. Thankfully this wasn't the case and I found Merger of the Heart an easy read, sweet, sexy romance with humour and likeable characters.

Jessica had a few magical days with Daniel and then, with a few cruel words, he was gone. That was eight years ago. Now, he's back and a little freaked out because he's standing in front of a seven year old boy that looks just like him.

A great pick-me-up any day!

This was a fun, sweet, and sexy read. For me, the author handled these characters and their storyline in an uplifting and fun way. She could have gone dark, and nasty. She could have had the two main characters fighting and cutting each other off at the knees given the att ...more

Merger of the Heart was a well-written story full of romance, second chances, and a merger between two individuals that changes the course of their lives for the better.

Merger of the Heart is an entertaining read from "new to me" author Melia Alexander. The well-designed cover and book blurb immediately caught my attention. I love the accidental pregnancy romance trope and Ms. Alexander does a nice job of evolving the individual characters into a family.

An exceptional story with well-developed characters. This is the debut novel of Melia Alexander. She's written an amazing story with a good plot and an ending that's not clichéd.

About the author

Melia Alexander

Melia Alexander is the author of sassy, sexy, fun contemporary romances, but is also fortunate to spend her week days at The Male Observation Lab (a.k.a. her job at a construction company) where she gets to observe guys in their natural habitat. Though they often behave like typical alpha males, she's often seen through their personas to the heart of who they really are - the heroes of their own stories. A native of Guam, Melia traded in warm, tropical breezes for the rainy Pacific Northwest. She's an avid reader who also loves romantic comedies - preferably with a glass of Cab Sauv and a box of dark chocolates nearby. In her free time, she's busy conquering her CrossFit fears: ring dips, power cleans, and the dreaded 800 meter run.
