CLAIMING HIS BROTHER’S BABY by author Helen Lacey is a January 2015 release by Harlequin Special Edition.

Cassandra Duncan is a solo mum looking after her small baby and trying to make ends meet. Her baby’s father died in a covert mission while on duty. So meeting her dead fiancé’s estranged brother why did she feel a lingering sense of familiarity and awareness?

Tanner McCord never forgot the first girl he kissed when he was thirteen. When he is introduced to the girl again, she was his brother’s fiancée. But now with his brother dead, could there be something more between them? He came to settle his brother’s estate and see that Cassie’s baby get what he is entitled to from his dead brother’s estate. What would Cassie do when she finds out all the secrets Tanner has kept about his brother? Could she forgive him? Ever?

CLAIMING HIS BROTHER’S BABY is an emotional roller-coaster of a read. The chemistry between Cassie and Tanner is palpable. And the emotional intensity in the story would move a reader to tears many times. A reader would stay hooked to the pages from start to end. Author Helen Lacey did full justice to Cassie as a single mom. And she wrote a gorgeous yet sensitive hero in Tanner who readers would fall in love with. A truly sigh-worthy romance.

Highly recommended to all readers of romance.

Helen Lacey knows how to capture the hearts of her readers each and every single time! This time around we meet Cassandra , single mom and trying the best she can. Her baby's father died in a covert mission whilst on duty, and she has always known that his brother will one day come and pull her house out from under her and leave her world in pieces. 

Only when Tanner McCord arrives it turns out he wants to give Cassie and the baby the very best they deserve , including a lifetime in his arms, but what will happen when he reveals the truth about his deceased brother?

A really, really lovely romantic story about a stunning couple that really got to my heart and will live there for a long time. Tanner was that classic " I love to hate this man but man I adore him so much too" kind of hero and totally melted my heart. And Cassie, shame poor Cassie it was tough reading about her single life experiences , I have been and still am in her position but somehow reading about what us single moms handle everyday made it very hard to read about, we move from day to day but don't really stop to think about it all, so Cassie 's insight into it all made it more real and broke my heart but it also made me very happy when she saw the light and it all worked out.

I recommend this read for all fans of romance, a lovely story about second changes and first time tries.

5/5 star review 
" He has arrived to heal her broken heart, but will his secret break it all over again?"
