Once Pregnant Twice ShyProbably like 35 Stars What's one impulsive night between old friends Tied together by tragedy business tycoon Garrett Gage has always vowed to protect Kate Devaney—at all costs What he doesn't expect is that she'd someday need protection from him When did Kate blossom from an orphaned little girl into a breathtaking woman And what possessed him to forsake a deathbed vow and take vulnerable Kate into his arms into his bed Now that they'd been intimate things have changed— than Garrett could possibly know Kate is carrying his child And along with that a secret that could change everything Kate Devaney's father died when she was 7 protecting Garrett Gage from killers As he died he asked Garrett to look after Kate so the two of them are linked by uite the tragedy Even tragic Kate is hopelessly in love with Garrett but doesn't know if he feels the same waySick of the heartache of wanting a man she can't have Kate decides to leave Texas for Miami When Garrett finds out he's determined to make her stay But does he love her back? And what about the marriage of convenience suggested by Cassandra Clarks whose company he wants to buy out?I mostly enjoyed this romance so I'll get the bad parts out of the way first1 I didn't like how Kate's answer to her predicament was to run away Surely moving out and renting nearby would be less drastic? It didn't sound as if she had any actual plan in place for when she got to Miami2 The big sex scene takes place when Garrett is sick with fever and strep throat Gross3 The marriage of convenience subplot It felt like a set up for a book between Cassandra and the illegitimate brother Emerson which would be fine but it's also used here as a manufactured way to develop the big misunderstanding between Kate and Garrett The secondary character of Beth kept on telling Kate that Garrett was going through with the wedding which wasn't the case and he'd given no indication that he would so why would Beth keep on harping on about it? In any case Kate and Garrett had enough emotional conflict to deal with without that silly external conflictOther than that it was a uick easy read and a couple of tears may have welled in my eyes towards the end Once Pregnant Twice Shy which I won from Goodreads Giveaways is a delightfully entertaining romance between a ruthlessly self disciplined media baron Garnett Gage and Kate Devaney the daughter of the body guard who saved his life With the death of Dave Devaney and no immediate family young Kate and Molly are raised by the Gage family but because of their father's sacrifice Garrett has vowed to protect the orphaned girls at all costs When Kate blossoms into a beautiful and vivacious woman and decides to move to Florida to overcome her attraction to the handsome tycoon sparks fly and one night their unexpected intimacy bears fruit than either imagined Haunted by spectres of the past and a looming business arrangement both must decide whether their love can survive and if they have a future togetherRed Garnier builds a sensual and fascinating narrative that progresses uickly and begins two months before the wedding of their siblings Molly and Julian John Skilfully she weaves in Garnett and Kate's fear and uncertainty from a past tragedy and news of an arranged marriage as the chemistry between them blazes to life The well developed personalities of the characters bring passion and energy to a romance that's short but riveting Kate Devaney haunted by the loss of her father and wanting the stability of marriage and a family has been hopelessly in love with Garnett for years desperate to attract his notice In the face of his aloofness her stubbornness feistiness and pride has increased until she's determined to flee her attraction rather than be hurt any A formidable businessman Garnett Gage is guilt ridden by her father's sacrifice persistently hiding his passion for Kate He's honourable overly protective strong and steady but fear of a broken heart will be his undoing Add to this enjoyable romance; a perky calm and loving sister; two loyal and persistent brothers and a cocky resentful illegitimate brotherThis charming light read will surely be enjoyed by all those that love a sensual romance In future I hope Red Garnier builds a story around the family dynamics between the tough minded Emerson Wells and the Gage brothers as well as his business arrangement with the spirited Cassandra Clarks It would be well worth reading I won a copy of Once Pregnant Twice Shy a Harleuin Desire novel by Red Garnier in exchange for an honest reviewDay and night Kate Devaney longed for this man Garrett Gage one of three successful media magnate brothers that she tried to forget They had shared historyand now a child For Kate must find the right time to tell Garrett that he was going to be a father But now he was engaged to be married a marriage in name only for business reasons and she must accept the newsKate was at her little sister's wedding Molly who was marrying Julian John and Garrett Julian's brother was the best man Tomorrow Kate was leaving with a one way ticket from San Antonio Texas to Miami FloridaThe Gage family had taken Molly and Kate in when their father was killed and they had became orphans the Gage family provided for them Kate's father had died protecting Garrett from gunshots because Garrett hadn't run for cover when he should have Garrett has always felt guilty about this and promised to look after and protect the girls Garrett vowed to change Kate's mind about moving to Miamibut would the truth come out? I really really wanted to love this one but only got as far as liking it This was my first read by Red Garnier and I loved how she brought out the emotions of Kate and Garrett But what turned me off and made me give a star less than it deserved was how this book seemed to drag out the past the recent past of the protagonists While reading just when I expected that the story will now proceed I was disappointed to see that it still remained in the past Kate and Garrett had great chemistry though Don't buy waste of money Bad storyTo much angst I love hareluin presents But spending 3 was not worth it No real story The hero was good and bad Nothing in between to substantiate why The heroine was weak and unrealistic She's moving to Florida with no plans This one should have free Want to read the others in this series Was a passionate and complicated relationsip these two have Good book with some intense heat between Garrett and Kate Garrett has loved Kate for years but his guilty feelings over her father's death won't allow him to believe in a future with her Those feelings get worse when they give in to their passion and he feels like he has betrayed his vow to protect her Garrett is torn up over his feelings for Kate He wants her in his life but can't believe she would want him because of his part in her father's death I loved seeing his brothers try to convince him to go after what he wantsKate has likewise been in love with Garrett but hasn't been able to get his attention She's ready to give up and move away in hopes of getting over him and finding someone else to love Her one night of passion with him shows her what she could have When she ends up pregnant she isn't sure what Garrett's reaction will be especially since she believes he's about to get engaged to someone else I loved the ending and seeing them both at Molly and Julian's wedding It was fun to see their reactions to what the other said and did I loved the way that both finally admitted their love and were able to overcome their fears There's an interesting twist to a business deal the brothers are working on that I hope is a setup for another book The existence of an illegitimate half brother who hates them has the potential for a really good story
