But Jake is such a darling little boy! And he's already captured her heart. What does she have to lose? If Sam's work keeps him on the road enough, she won't have to deal with him much at all.
Maybe this just might work.
All Sam du Cannon wants is a good mom for his son. He's had it with women. Doesn't ever plan to get involved with another woman again. That makes Nella perfect for him. He's never been overly attracted to plus-size women, so if Nella agrees to marry him, he won't have to worry about being tempted to have a relationship with her.
At least, that's what he keeps telling himself.
As they lay exhausted from making love, Sam said, "You are, without a doubt, the most passionate woman I have ever known. And you turn me on more than any woman ever has."
Not knowing what to say, Nella just reached up and lightly kissed him. "You ain't seen nothing yet," she whispered her promise.
Soon they both drifted into a contented sleep.

She'd been laid off from her job at a local car dealership during a round of cutbacks. So here she was—twenty-seven years old, no job, no home, sleeping in her car, with just enough money to buy a little more gas and a little food if she only ate one good meal a day. And that would only be for a week.
Exhausting every avenue for work, but knowing she'd rather go hungry than crawl back to her parents and ask for help, Melanie was at a loss as to her next option. Until she saw a flyer on the windshield of her car that read "NANNY NEEDED, ASAP."
Using the cell phone she was about to lose, she made the call that would change her life forever.
ASAP Nanny is a nine-chapter novella. The ebook also contains the first chapters of all of Pat Ballard's books, so it's a perfect way to dip a little further into the Queen of Rubenesque Romance's universe. It's a smorgasbord of rubenesque romance and body positivity!
Abigail Avery was falsely convicted of the murder of her father and sent to prison when she was only eighteen years old. The supposedly good citizens of Leaky Springs, Mississippi were silent as an innocent young woman was orphaned, accused, swiftly tried and locked away. Her only clue in the travesty of justice is that a bunch of crooked "good ole boys"—headed by the judge who presided at her trial—keep pestering her to sell the family farm.
Now, a decade later, Abigail's out of prison and heading back to Leaky Springs. It won't be a pleasant homecoming. She's out for revenge on the people who stole ten years of her life. Especially the judge.
"A writer of romance novels who struggled for years with a cycle of vicious diets, Ballard recounts her own journey to acceptance and a positive self image," says Selfhelp.fam, which lists 10 Steps to Loving Your Body as one of the Top 100 Best Self-Help Books of All Time. "She shares her secrets here with worksheets, advice and 10 steps that will help you focus on the positive aspects of your body, then begin rebuilding your image of yourself from the bottom up."
Liz at Healthbolt.net describes 10 Steps to Loving Your Body as "a mixture of personal coach and cheerleader for anyone looking to discover how to accept their body as it is, not as you want it to be."
"10 Steps is your body's best friend in pocket form," says Susan Schulherr, author of Eating Disorders for Dummies. "I'm delighted to have it on hand to recommend -- personally and professionally -- to anyone struggling with body image and the inkling that it's better to embrace than fight the one-and-only body you have."

And then she met Pastor Adam Singletary.
From his vantage point on the stage, Adam Singletary’s body went very still as he watched the woman slip quietly, otherwise unnoticed, into the back of the church and take a seat on the last row. She set her purse on the floor and then looked up directly into his eyes. An arc of unseen electricity connected them, jolting his body to the center of his being.
She’s finally here, he thought.
