Title: Soldier’s Pregnancy Protocol

Author: Beth Cornelison

Mills & Boon imprint: Romantic Suspense

Year of publication: 2012

The heroine: Teacher Erin Bauer

The hero: Black Ops soldier Alec Kincaid

The blurb: Survival. Danger. Living on the edge. It’s what Alec Kincaid is all about. But crawling on his belly through the South American jungle is child’s play next to babysitting a mother-to-be. But safeguarding Erin Bauer and her baby is Alec’s top priority. Only, now the Special Ops soldier is falling for this brave, vulnerable woman with the melting mahogany eyes…

Alone with Alec in a remote mountain hideaway, Erin knows her life depends on the rugged, enigmatic stranger. Alex makes her feel protected. Cherished. Complete. But how much is she willing to risk for a love that could give them both what they desire most?

Standalone or series: This is part of the Black Ops Rescues series, but can be read as a standalone.

The review: I really enjoyed this book. There’s a lot to like about Erin and Alec, and the way they meet is quite clever – Erin buys Alec’s old house and gets embroiled in his quest to find his special ops partner and best friend, Daniel, who disappeared nine months previously while they were in South America on a mission.

Erin is fourteen weeks pregnant to the adrenaline junkie husband who died two years previously, thanks to the miracle of modern science. As Erin spends more time with Alec, she can’t help but compare him to her dead husband, whom she comes to realise cared more about himself than her. Bradley never put her first, as Alec continues to do, and so when Alec needs her help the most, Erin faces her greatest fear to save him.

Meanwhile Alec comes to realise that the more time he spends with Erin, the lonelier he feels and the more he wants what he’s never had – someone who loves him and cares for him, a family.

As for the title? Bad Mills & Boon. No biscuit.
