About the Book:

Sometimes fate needs a little help…
Jonah Wallace knows what it’s like to grow up without love. Despite having more money than the Queen of England, his childhood was cold and stale as he grew up in boarding schools. He’s dedicated his life to helping homeless and displaced children find the love and support they need by creating the Haven House Foundation, work that resulted in him being Knighted by the Queen.
Now that he’s living in America, his work is going along just fine…until his grandfather gives fate a little nudge by insisting he take a wife before he can inherit.
Coffee shop owner, Maggie Bonelli, is pregnant and the baby’s dad has gone AWOL. She knows too well the pain of growing up without a daddy. So when Jonah Wallace comes into her shop proposing marriage for a year, she takes him up on his offer, even if it’s only for a year. Live in a mansion and give her baby a name and a daddy to call his/her own. But can they keep their perfect arraignment strictly business…or will fate’s helping hand bring them love at last?

An incredibly heartwarming story, and the picture perfect happily ever after. Maggie is a young woman with a problem. From a family legacy of survival without men; she is no stranger to hard work and dedication. At twenty four, pregnant and alone she knows that the future will be a struggle. Fate lands Jonah Wallace in her coffee shop one late afternoon after his fiancé leaves him the day of the wedding. Let not get hung up on the fact that their wedding was a ruse for him to be able to ensure his ownership of the family heritage. After learning his Grandfather’s plans to sell the family land; he was furious to discover the stipulation that he must marry for the length of a year in order to be eligible for the ownership. Determined not to lose the property he suggests that he and Maggie marry for the year. Maggie being a very realistic and moralistic character was mortified to think about marrying for money, but after some thought she had found one thing that he might be able to provide that would make this sacrifice with it. Being well experienced in living without a father, Maggie is none too familiar with the cruelty of children. So, just maybe in exchange for this one favor Jonah could offer her child the chance to feel like she is a part of something bigger. While, she knows that they will never be a family, and this arrangement is only for the length of a year; she also knows that no matter the name would offer her child some much more than she could ever hope for. This was an incredible story about love and devotion. Even prior to the mountain of emotions that readers feel through Jonah and Maggie; a mother loves for her child could be no greater. This was a heartfelt and emotional read. It becomes apparent right away that the lines so clearly drawn are blurring, but it is as this couple was drawn to one another. It displayed this author amazingly talented writing for such a romance to grow emotional through the pages with the lack of physical aspect. The Knight and Maggie’s Baby will definitely entice some potent emotions, and proves well worth the effort with such an incredibly rewarding story.
