It ain’t over ’til it’s over…

Contest is now closed to entries.  Winner to be posted this weekend.

So… this is my only secret baby book.  You’ve been warned, cuz I know a lot of people hate them.




Dale was thoroughly shaken as he escorted Lauren from the doctor’s office. He had never, never, in his life wanted anything the way he wanted the baby Lauren was carrying. When he heard the heartbeat, he thought his own heart was going to explode. It was pure instinct, but everything in him shouted, Mine!

As he opened the car door for Lauren, a different type of instinct was shouting the same thing. He crouched down beside her and spoke her name. She turned her head to look at him, her shiny black hair swinging with the movement before settling around her shoulders. He reached up with one hand, threading it through that dense thick hair, pulling her face to his.

Dale kissed her gently, sucking at her lower lip before seeking entrance to her mouth. The taste of her, something innocent and sweet, touched lightly with the dark heady taste of sex. It was the same as her scent, a complete contradiction in every way. He craved more of it.

He wanted her.

And he was realizing that it wasn’t just some temporary need. He wanted her always. He wanted the baby that was growing inside her. He wanted to see her face in the morning when he woke up and wanted to lay down next to her at night. He wanted to make love to her, with her. He wanted to have a family with her and grow old with her.

Gradually, he ended the kiss, pulling back to study her face. She looked at him out of confused eyes, her mouth wet, her cheeks flushed. He decided it was best that the baby’s father wasn’t interested. Dale Stoner had every intention of taking his place, in both Lauren’s life, and in her baby’s.

Also, it’s dawned on me that this book has now been out ten years.  I’ve been published for ten years.

So I’m going to give away some copies of this.  Up to 10 copies, depending on how many comments I get.  So, comment away…

  1. I actually like the secret baby book when done right, and you always do thing right for me, so I’m game! Thanks!

  2. I don’t always hate secret baby books, it depends on how it is handled. I absolutely hate the epilogue with the magic pregnancy/birth even though one or both of the couple has been told that they can’t have children and it has been a major issue throughout the story!
    (I am in the UK so if the giveaway is only open to the US please just ignore this comment 🙂 )

  3. This is one of the few books of yours I haven’t read. I am one of the “Oh, no, not a secret baby!” readers, but I also trust you not to write a bad book. Judging by the snippet, I am rethinking my secret baby aversion.

    And yay for 10 years of being published!

  4. Haven’t read this one of your books. Looks great though, will have to check it out.

  14. Time flies, right? – 10 years of being published is a great milestone. I know how much people like to make fun of them, but personally, I love secret baby stories. Obviously I’m not alone, otherwise there wouldn’t be so many of them.

    Congrats and keep up the good work.

  19. Congratulations, Shi! Wow, ten years. I have been a fan from almost the beginning. First, I was a fan, and then became a reviewer, and from there an executive managing editor. Now I am back to being a fan, freelance editor, and writer. You have been such an inspiration to me. Thank you for all the wonderful books you have published throughout the years. You knew me as Kim Burton, but a divorce after the Daytona RT Convention gave me a chance to change my name. Here is to many more years of success!!

  20. This sounds amazing! I’d love a copy 🙂
    And congratulations on ten years! Cheers!

Thanks for the opportunity!

  25. never read this one either – would love the chance – would be happy to let you know how the book was after reading – congrats on the 10 years – hope you continue writing more great stories

  26. Congratulations on 10 years, I love to read all different types of tropes so secret babies do not bother me.

  27. I love this book. It is one of my goto when I need something to read that’s not a para. Did not know this was your first. For a first it is also one of your best

  28. I have always loved books that show a man who has a strong passion for a woman while she is heavy with child, as well as when she is just herself. Curvy and full figured or petite and small on the top. All women want to feel like there is a man out in the world who will make them feel like they are the center of the universe for their man. I loved the intro. I would really be interested to read the whole story. I have really loved everything of yours I have read so far. Please consider me for a copy. Thanks for sharing your writing gift with the world for the last ten years. I hope you have many years to come with equal success.

  29. Hi Shiloh, My daughter and I read all your books. We love them, can never get enough of them. Can’t wait till the next one comes out!!!

    Thanks so much for your wonderful words…….

    Sharon Webb and Tanya Laird

  30. How do I not have this already?!? I’ve been buying your books ever since I found you at EC. Hunters were my first series obsession! Then I thought I went back and bought everything you had there….and again I ask…. How do I not already have this one?!? (Her Wildest Dreams being my other favorite from that time) win or not… I must get this one!!!

  31. I’d love to read your earliest stuff, just to see how your style has evolved. You do such a great job with so many different genres. Please keep them coming!

  32. This is scary but I don’t remember this book! We’re not getting old!
