For a Harlequin this one was pretty good. The hero was likeable as he was calm, intelligent, and interesting enough, although nothing stood out as unique. The heroine I dug even if she had a massive chip on her shoulder - I liked the author didn't melt away her issues so quickly as many authors do, where she kept up her motivations for being untrusting for most of the book, used her brain and distrust. She also had a valid motive that was reasonable, made sense, and strong enough to keep the plot issues up. The end of the book had a nifty twist on why she was forced to trust him after all. But their strange clutch on a baby again is a turn off - why can't couples want some alone time? Is it that unusual to think about it? The other negative was the dialogue was cheesy during...intimate moments, which is a common thing for Harlequins. There was some good writing with those scenes though, some steamy areas authors don't always go to.

And, there was some humor -

"I may not brag about it, but I certainly know how to do it," Christa told him, blushing a little as she responded to his gentle humor. "One of my friends' teenage daughters has told me all about it. They had a demonstration at school - with a cucumber..."

"A cucumber?" Daniel burst out laughing. "And women wonder why men have such fragile sexual egos."

Book description
She would not be seduced! A pretty woman with no head for business? Christa Bellingham had worked hard to banish this image of herself. Did that mean that she now came across as too outspoken ? particularly about men? She had learned the hard way that men were not to be trusted. And Daniel Geshard's line of business attracted the worst of deceivers. He said Christa's cynicism was a disguise and he could teach her to trust. Daniel seemed so genuine, but didn't he have a lot to gain if he could win her over?
