He’s about to find a baby on his doorstep … and his assistant in his bed.

Austin Prescott is a lot of things. Ex football player. Sports agent. And as of this morning? Father. Finding a baby on his doorstep should have been a joke but the pink sticky note and baby carrier she came in is deadly serious.

What’s an out of his depth bachelor to do? Call his tempting and beyond gorgeous executive assistant and beg her to move in.

Quinnlyn Stone agrees to help Austin until he can straighten out his messy life. It’s just another item on her very long To-Do list. It’s absolutely not because she’s attracted to her very single and extremely handsome boss.

Close quarters. A baby. Undeniable chemistry. What could possibly go wrong?

A complete standalone novel!

    A terrific start to a new series by this fabulous author. Always one to give us swoon-worthy characters and a story to cause a few heart problems. Melting, aching, breaking and most of all heartfelt. Our hero, the sexy ex-footballer Austin and the wonderful Quinn are a dream couple. They started out hot, moved on because an office romance is taboo and then when he needed her she came through. A surprise baby will melt your heart as Austin struggles to be a dad and Quinn comes to his rescue. The old sparks between the two are fanned as they worked together for the baby. What a family they make! This is a fantastic office romance and surprise baby storyline with so many emotions and a few laughs. Worth the read! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • A different branch of the Dare family!

    4.5 Stars This is book one in the Dare Nation series and it features Austin Prescott and Quinnlyn Stone. Austin came home one night to find a baby on his porch. Panicked, he called his very efficient, very sexy executive assistant for help. These two throw off some serious sparks whenever they’re together. Quinn is great with kids but doesn’t want any of her own. When all is said and done, what’s left for two people in love when one wants children and the other doesn’t? This is a fabulous series starter! The characters are well rounded and have steady growth throughout. All the Prescott siblings are Paul Dare’s biological children through sperm donation. They all know but still refer to him as Uncle Paul. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in this series!
  • Fun, sexy read!

  • Great Start to a Great Story

    I read the synopsis and could NOT wait to read this book. Once I started I could not put this book down. Austin and Quinn’s story was captivating. It’s a bit of insta-love but set at a slow burn pace. It’s filled with all the delicious things one would want in a quick read. A great story with characters with off the chart chemistry. Austin is a former NFL star who owns a sports agency firm. He is looking for an Executive Assistant. In walks Quinnlynn aka Quinn. But although their attraction was instant, they decided to keep their relationship professional. Until a little someone appears in their lives. Austin comes home to find a baby on his door step. The only person he feels comfortable turning to for help is Quinn. With Austin out of his depth, he asks her to move in. This is where things heat up. Now in close quarters they not only learn that they make a great team for caring for a child but they also finally give into their attraction. I couldn’t get enough of them. This is the first book in the Dare Nation series. This book can be read as a stand-alone. I have not read all of Carly’s Dare series and was able to follow along and enjoy this story with no problem. She does a great job of giving a quick recap of the characters and their backgrounds. This a great start to what I know is a great series.
