The Knight and Maggie’s Baby by Lisa Mondello review
Sometimes fate needs a little help…
Jonah Wallace knows what it’s like to grow up without love. Despite having more money than the Queen of England, his childhood was cold and stale as he grew up in boarding schools. He’s dedicated his life to helping homeless and displaced children find the love and support they need by creating the Haven House Foundation, work that resulted in him being knighted by the Queen.
Now that he’s living in America, his work is going along just fine…until his grandfather gives fate a little nudge by insisting he take a wife before he can inherit.
Coffee shop owner, Maggie Bonelli, is pregnant and the baby’s dad has gone AWOL. She knows too well the pain of growing up without a daddy. So when Jonah Wallace comes into her shop proposing marriage for a year, she takes him up on his offer, even if it’s only for a year. Live in a mansion and give her baby a name and a daddy to call his/her own. But can they keep their perfect arraignment strictly business…or will fate’s helping hand bring them love at last?
I loved this story it touched me on a personal level when aman who while he was desperate for hisown reasons really stepped up top the plate and took responsibilty for someone else. Maggie is one tough lady who has been threw enough but not only learned from what she went threw but she embraced it and made sure she gave back to others.Her stubborness shined threw in so many ways expecially when she refused to give up working. When things got dicey for the baby i was racing to se ehow it turned out.Jonah has alot of hang ups and some flaws that make his character rather redeemable. When he stood up and did what was right by the baby.It was all she wrote he became one of my favorite characters ever. I have to say I fell in love with him and Maggie. This book was a fast read my only complaint was that it had to end. This book gets the SiNners stamp of approval and two thumbs up awesome work!
