About this ebook

In the Southern town of Lafayette Falls, a new life brings together a woman with everything to lose and a doctor with everything to prove.

When a sickly infant is surrendered at the Lafayette Falls Medical Center, and orphaned soon after, pediatrician Aaron Kendall arranges to adopt him. After a painful divorce, the busy baby doc is about to realize his own dream of becoming a father when the baby’s beautiful estranged aunt turns up. She doesn't exactly approve of the Kendall bachelor pad, complete with Aaron's cranky dad and wacky brother, forcing Aaron to form a risky alliance with her.

Country singer-songwriter Lia Montgomery barely knew her half-sister, but she's determined her tiny nephew goes to a good home. If only she fit the bill herself, but her stressful life on the road is no place for a baby. Yet despite her misgivings, as she gets to know Aaron, she realizes the smart and sexy doctor is everything a child could want in a dad—and more unsettling, everything she's ever hoped for in a man. After all she's put him through, is it too late to form a family—and maybe put a song in the good doctor's heart?

I found Not Through Loving You difficult to get into but after about the first 25% the story picks up and develops into a sweet love story as the relationship between Lia and Aaron grows. Both characters have a history that makes them cautious and with the help of a little magic and an overt push from brother Stevie, the romance takes off. Needless to say outside influences almost hijack the romance, but with a red Jag dangled like a carrot, Stevie comes through for his brother and Lia. Having experienced a prem baby first hand, I identified with Aaron and Lia's concerns regarding baby John and trauma the sweet baby went through. Ms Preston's writing style is easy to read and while this book is part of a series, it is nevertheless a stand alone. It was enjoyable reading about other characters in the series in this book and Gilda was a fun addition. I received a copy of this book as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.
