Lily Cookson has a few rules for the New Year, the most important being don't fall for Jack Bailey. The gorgeous, rugged man returned with a new look and a determination to win her back, catching her off guard. After a forbidden night in his arms, she vows never to let it happen again. But when morning sickness kicks in a few weeks later, Lily realizes staying away from Jack just got a whole lot harder.

Jack Bailey left Shadow Creek behind five years ago when his world imploded around him, knowing it would be best for everyone if he was gone...including Lily. It took him a long time to get his life back on track and grow into the kind of man she needs him to be. Now he's determined to prove to Lily that he's back for good and ready to commit, but the secrets she's holding onto are nothing compared to the bombshell he drops...

The Baby Bombshell is the the 2nd book in the Shadow Creek Montana series. It can be read as a stand alone. I didn't read the 1st book and I had no problem following the story. This book was very sweet. Even in the sad moments I couldn't help but smile at the char ...more

descriptionI like this cover. Great representation of the story. Good composition. It takes place just after Christmas, so the red and green of the text makes it slightly festive. It loses a star for one of my BIGGEST pet peeves...the author's name is larger than the title. Cue graphic design 101 lecture.description

A couple separated by their past and further disconnected as time passed on. That’s what mostly appealed me to this book. Plus, add reconciliation chance to the mix and add a baby (or two) on top of it and it was the perfect combination for me. It’s just the type of contemporary romance I was lookin ...more

“I never stopped loving you.”

It's the simplest—and most complicated—sentiment in the world, and it's the reason I love second chance romance so much. “I never stopped loving you.” Cue all the swooning, please and thank you.

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.
