Baby on the Bad Boy’s Doorstep by Victoria James 💕 Book Blitz & Gift Card Giveaway 💕 (Contemporary Romance)



Connor O’Leary knows nothing about babies, families, or good women, yet he’s up to his ears in all three. Coming to Shadow Creek, Montana was meant to be a new start for this former oil rigger, but he had no idea that fresh beginning would include a baby on his doorstep and a hot nanny he can’t stop thinking about. Diapers, feedings, and late nights soothing his little bundle of surprise were definitely not on his itinerary.

The last thing Haley Thomson expected to see is the reclusive Connor with a baby in his arms. Before she knows it, she’s volunteered as nanny—temporarily. Helping out with baby Rosie is a dream come true and fills a space in her heart she believed will never be filled. But falling for Rosie’s hot and sexy bachelor daddy is not on her to-do list…but boy would she ever like it to be…



“You know that nothing can ever happen between us,”
he said, pulling back slightly. Her arm fell and humiliation
swept through her, harsh and fierce.
“Of course,” she whispered, waving a hand, praying that
she’d be able to look and sound convincing. “That would be
so stupid. I’m leaving. You’re starting a life here. There’s no
way we could work, this would be all wrong. Right?”
He stood up abruptly and ran a hand through his hair
as he walked across the room. She tried not to let the sting
of his rejection show. She’d put herself out there, not even
intentionally, but he’d shot her down instantly. “Haley…”
“No, never mind. I don’t know what’s wrong with me
tonight. Must be the wine and loneliness. I haven’t had wine
in ages.” Lies. She’d had wine last week with her friends.
Well, not all lies because she had never been able to handle
a second glass of wine well. She was into her second, and it
usually managed to lift the cloak of self-discipline. “And all
I do is talk to a baby who can’t speak back yet. I was really
blabbing nonsensically.”
His wince was even more painful. He knew she was
trying to save face. But again, he did nothing to indicate
he had feelings for her. So it was one-sided; that was fine.
She wasn’t even ready for a relationship. “I’m not ready for
a relationship, anyway,” she continued babbling because
he just stood there looking gorgeous and untouchable.
“Another man is the last thing this girl needs,” she said,
clearing the pizza boxes and plates. “I need another man in
my life like I need a bad case of shingles.”
She thought she heard a choked laugh, but since she
wasn’t looking at him, she continued speaking and crossed
the room to the kitchen. “Really, stinky socks, food demands,
criticism, having to look perfect all the time, someone
telling you you’re not good enough, always pointing out
your faults, yelling, slamming doors. I mean, who needs
that?” She probably shouldn’t have had that second glass
of wine, judging by the look on his face. She thought he was
going to walk out of the room, but he just stood there with a
look of sympathy. She didn’t know what she preferred.
“Haley,” he said roughly.
She swallowed hard when he started crossing the room
toward her. Uh-oh. She slung back the rest of her wine
and placed it on the counter, belatedly realizing chugging
alcohol might not be the best look for her. He didn’t stop
walking until he was about an inch or so from her. He had
amazing light-blue flecks in his eyes, and up close she could
see he had a tiny scar above his lips. She really shouldn’t
stare at his mouth, but while she was, she had to admit it was
a very sensual-looking mouth. She stood there, not moving,
maybe not really breathing either. Again, that blood sugar
line was really coming in handy.
“Haley,” he said again in that voice that made her toes
curl. She lifted her eyes from his mouth to meet his gaze.
“Um, yes?”
“You’re good enough.”
She didn’t say anything. She couldn’t, because her
emotions were swirling around inside her, tying up her
words, until she didn’t know what to say. For a second it
looked as though he was going to touch her, or move forward,
but instead he backed up a step. His face was tight, his eyes
stormy. “You are more than good enough, and if anyone
ever made you think otherwise, or told you otherwise, they
never deserved you.”

Victoria always knew she wanted to be a writer and in grade five, she penned her first story, bound it (with staples and a cardboard cover) and did all the illustrations herself. Luckily, this book will never see the light of day again.

In high school she fell in love with historical romance and then contemporary romance. After graduating University with an English Literature degree, Victoria pursued a degree in Interior Design and then opened her own business.

Victoria is a hopeless romantic who is living her dream, penning happily-ever-after's for her 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 she's quite content living in suburbia with her husband, their two young children, and very bad cat.
