Peek Inside The Best Man's Baby

Jake has never played by the rules. Getting Minister Holbrook’s daughter pregnant wasn’t part of any life plan, but he won’t run from his responsibilities. He’ll step up and be the best man he can, even if he doesn’t have a clue where to begin. The more time he spends with Claire, though, the more he wants her, and the harder it is to get close because that would mean sharing the one thing he hasn’t with anyone—the truth and his heart.

Praise

"Every now and again an author is able to write a book that you fall in love with, and engages you in such a way that even when you have finished reading, the story seems to live on in your soul. The Best Man's Baby by Victoria James is one of those kind of books. It held my heart in a vise from beginning to end...I recommend it highly. This story is filled with raw emotions from both main characters. When Claire cried, my heart was breaking with her. When Jake got emotional, my eyes teared. This story is the perfect combination of romance, intricate plot, angst and love. I will be anxiously waiting to read the third book in the series when it is released sometime this winter." -Harlequin Junkie Book Review

"Ms. James is hands down one of the best authors that I have had the pleasure of reading! She has a way of writing that pulls you in, so that you feel what they feel. AMAZING!! It was an emotional roller coaster and I loved it! Her books are definitely on my "have to buy" list!" -Priscilla, Amazon Review

"The Best Man's Baby is my first Victoria James book. I can say without a DOUBT, it will not be my last. I was sucked into the book immediately...The journey these two go on is frustrating, touching, heart-wrenching, and amazing all at the same time...There are not enough words to express how much I loved this story." -Read Your Writes Book Reviews

"I absolutely loved this! Such and emotional book. I laughed out loud, cried and my chest hurt because I can feel their pain! Such a beautiful love story and definitely worth the money. Victoria James will be on my auto buy list now! I've read all of her books and this one is the best one yet! Can't wait for Evan's story!" -Casacass, Amazon Review

The Best Man's Baby is a great mix of the cliche and the unique. There are lots of books about the best man falling in love at the wedding. And there are lots of books where a one night stand ends up in a baby. The thing that makes this book stand out are the characters (they are always the most... ...more

Victoria James is another unknown author in Portugal. She lives near Toronto, in Canada and writes for Entangled, Indulgence. I feel sad when I read such great books as “The Best Man’s Baby” and realize that are so many good authors out there waiting for the opportunity to be discovered...

My initial thoughts
I started this book not really knowing what to expect but felt this would be a fairly light-hearted story. But, with what I knew of these two characters from the first book, I couldn't imagine them being "frothy." My instincts were correct as both Claire and Jake had depth and compl...

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.
