Father's Day Week Romance List Party!


I am not a huge fan of the secret baby trope because it is rare that I can forgive the heroine for keeping such knowledge from the hero. There are always exceptions though! 


My brother actually had the secret baby thing happened to him. Crazy. His daughter contacted him when she was 19. He found out he was a grandfather to a 3 month baby boy on the same day. My brother was so heartbroken to learn about this little girl growing up without him. He is working hard to build a relationship with her and his grandchild now. 


As from Romance Novels, I tend to like it better when the hero discovers he has a child and the heroine of the story isn't the mother of the child. 


Here are some great reads with the heroes who have just discovered they are fathers!
