Harlequin American Romance #1499,
Series: Safe Harbor Medical
A baby is the last thing surgical nurse Anya Meeks expected from her passionate New Year's Eve fling. Growing up, Anya shouldered more than her share of responsibility, even raising her three younger siblings. She isn't ready to tackle a lifelong commitment to a child - or to a man - no matter how caring and attentive he seems.
A drop-dead-gorgeous doctor like Jack Ryder is used to the women of Safe Harbor Hospital vying for his attention. Too bad the only woman he wants is avoiding him. Jack longs for a family -- he'll do anything to persuade Anya not to put their baby up for adoption. But with her jaded views on relationships and family, it won't be easy. Can he convince her that their love is no accident?
Oh my, these characters! Jack and Anya have basically come from opposite sides of the spectrum as to how they grew up and they sure have to put work into making the relationship move forword, even if at first Anya doesn't want to. Add to that the cast of side characters that you have seen before (or are just meeting) and you have a well balanced romance with all-around believable people that could live just down the road. Another good addition to the Safe Harbor Medical series. Can't wait for the next book The Surprise Triplets
