Title: Home for the Baby’s Sake
Series: The Bravos of Valentine Bay Book #8
Author: Christine Rimmer
Series: Harlequin Special Edition
Publisher: Harlequin – Romance (U.S. & Canada)
This is another lovely contemporary romance featuring the Bravo siblings who grew up in Valentine Bay. Each book features the romance of one of the siblings and, although they are obviously connected, I believe you can still enjoy any of the books as a standalone. This story stars Hailey Bravo who, with her sister Harper, runs H&H Productions and together they are key to the production of the community shows and projects in the old theatre. Unfortunately the theatre has been sold and they know they are only guaranteed to be able to use it until the New Year, after that they have no idea what the new owner plans to do with the building.
Roman Marek has moved back to Valentine Bay with his Mum and young son after the death of his wife. His Mum encouraged him to buy the old theatre when she learnt it was for sale. He’s a real estate developer and multimillionaire but he hasn’t decided just what he wants to do with the theatre yet. When he visits it for the first time he sees Hailey Bravo in a meeting and then thwarting the unwanted attentions of one of the men. This is instant love for him, but Hailey is more wary.
This is one alpha male meeting his match in every way. He’s used to folks following his lead and doing what he wants but that certainly won’t happen with Hailey – she’s also got a huge stubborn streak despite being a compassionate and caring individual. The Bravo clan are brilliant, as usual, with several of them having key roles to play in this story. It is a story involving a divorcee, a widower, a single parent and that’s just Roman! There’s lots of love, plenty of surprises and more than one romance in this great addition to the series. If you enjoy sparks flying, family dramas and two people meeting their match, you’ll love reading this story!
Thanks to Harlequin and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
He’d do anything for his son, including returning to the town he left behind.
Valentine Bay’s the perfect place for real estate developer Roman Marek to raise his infant son. But when he snaps up the charming local theater, he doesn’t bargain for tempestuous director Hailey Bravo. Hailey won’t let Roman wreck the thing she holds most dear—and she’s certainly gotten under Roman’s notoriously thick skin. As the duo spar and sparks fly, Roman’s surprised to find that Hailey’s the perfect missing piece for his family. But how can he convince her that this partnership’s for keeps?
