How To Marry...
The World's Best Dad
Harlequin American Romance #816
Julie Miles had been a mom for exactly 43 hours and 10 minutes when she realized her adopted daughter needed a dad. So it was a stroke of luck that new neighbor Ben Harbison was a single father and gorgeous...right?
Ben's bedroom eyes and sexy dimples made Julie finally feel like a passionate woman! She knew only the best dad would do for her new daughter...but could there ever be a better man for Julie?
an excerpt from The World's Best Dad.
"Delightfully entertaining in its scope, The Mommy School hits a chord familiar to women who know baptism by fire into motherhood isn't nearly as great as it's cracked up to be...Taylor's players ring true to the core: i.e., Coulter is blessedly male, complete with that infuriating 'we're doing it my way' attitude...Solid writing, characters who show their personality, and a delightful ability to spin a story!"
--Polly Anderson, Romance Comunications
"I can't recall the last time I encountered such realistic, yet enjoyable, kids in a novel. Any novel. These girls cry, shout, giggle, whine, get into various scrapes, and still manage to be completely loveable. Their characterizations were top-notch...Contemporary category romance has much to look forward to in the future offerings by Val Taylor. The kids alone are worth the price of The Mommy School.""One fast and funny book. 4 1/2 Bells!!"
--Cathy Sova, The Romance Reader
--Bell, Book & Candle
"The Mommy School is a light-hearted gender-bender romp that is the ideal reading experience to lighten up a day filled with dreary April showers. The lead characters are interesting as individuals and fascinating as a couple. The mischievous trio behaving as curious children often do make this a Valerie Taylor-made novel for the young at heart. A winner, by a writer whose star is on the rise."
--Harriet Klausner, for RomEx Reviews
"In Valerie Taylor's first release, The Mommy School, you'll find love, laughter, and the age-old struggle for balance. From the start to the finish, I had a smile on my face. A feel-good book."
--Julia Jackson, AOL Reviews
But then "Mom" turns out to be a hunky guy in jeans, with a seen-it-all smile and a know-it-all attitude...
