The Bachelor's Baby

Back Cover

Your date with Bachelor #3 includes champagne and chocolate in the limo that collects you, a helicopter tour or Marietta and the surrounding mountains and valleys, and dinner at a five star restaurant in Great Falls. While oil baron Linc Brady wines and dines you, a maid service will completely clean your home.

Who could resist this tempting offer? Meg Canon plans to do just that. She’s only home to clean out her childhood bedroom for her brother’s new step-daughter, then she’s outta her childhood small town and back to her life in Chicago. Then she meets the sexy, renegade millionaire while she’s stuck in the snow. Sparks fly and Meg is tempted to stay a little longer.

Linc Brady is new in town and happy to help a kid in need, but a bachelor auction? Technically he doesn’t owe Meg a damned thing after she sets him up for the auction, then bids on him, but her high-class city polish is his fatal weakness and makes her impossible to forget. When she agrees to come home with him, he makes it clear he’s a confirmed bachelor. This is a one-night thing.

One night that turns into nine months and maybe…a lifetime?

You think tricking me into standing on a stage to have women bid on me like a stud bull is funny?

- Linc Brady, The Bachelor's Baby - March 2015

Note From Dani

Much like Meg and Linc, I didn’t expect to be involved in a Bachelor Auction series. But the opportunity came up and I said, “Sure, sounds like fun!” Because that’s what I always say and then I panic.

I had already set up Meg in Blame The Mistletoe as Blake’s sister and a potential character for a future book, should the opportunity arise, so I had my heroine at least. And I already knew she’d have some unresolved feelings about being adopted.

Finding her a bachelor was a little trickier. I knew I wanted him to be made in Montana, but also a tycoon, so I threw Linc on the oil rigs and up the corporate ladder to really toughen him up.

As for writing the story, it was like planning an actual event as a committee. It made me laugh as we were working through the logistics of where to set the stage and who would be the auctioneer. There are no photos of Grey’s Saloon, but I have a very clear mental picture of this bar that started as a bordello, with it’s upper lounge where the bachelors are all lounging against the rail like old-timey saloon girls.

Very apropos, right? We had such a great bunch of authors in this series, all finding these great touches that made it so fun and racy. I’ll be honest and admit that collaborating is a skill I’m still trying to master. I don’t have critique partners or beta readers. I write my story then I send it to my editor, then I fix what she tells me to fix. Checking in with others initially slowed me down, but I’ve learned to work around it and I really do love the results when it’s all done and dusted.

I hope you enjoy The Bachelor’s Baby and all the titles in the Bachelor Auction series. I recently finished my next Montana Born story, His Blushing Bride, featuring Meg’s brother, Bastian. Look for it in May of 2015.

About Dani Collins

Dani Collins grew up in Maple Ridge, a suburb of Vancouver, when it was still a small town. With a father and both grandfathers switching up between logging and fishing, she grew into a quintessential BC girl: green, natural, and impervious to rain. Despite a lot of canning and hanging of laundry in her childhood, Dani has a habit of leaping into the unknown, which she credits to her ancestor, Samuel Robertson, a boatwright from Scotland who pioneered Maple Ridge and traded furs to the Hudson’s Bay Company in Fort Langley. Given this adventurer’s blood, she’s always been drawn to stories about people braving life in faraway lands.
