The NEW ADULT genre has been added to with the release of BABY DADDY, book #1 in Kathy Clark’s NEW ADULT romantic suspense series, SCANDALS.
BABY DADDY is the first book in the series and is told from Killeen Ames’ point of view. Killeen has it all…beauty, brains, a college scholarship and a rich and handsome boyfriend…until she finds out she is pregnant. The boyfriend disappears and the scholarship is in jeopardy. When an attorney arrives at her door with an offer she can’t refuse, she has nothing to lose.
She travels to Austin and is surprised to find that her birth father was a popular music star who is now dead. He has left her a generous inheritance that includes a highly successful P.I. agency, Scandals…and four half-brothers and sisters.
The catch is, they must work together at the agency. Are they willing to leave their old jobs, schools and lives for a father’s dream…a father they never knew? Killeen’s decision is further complicated when she and Christopher, the totally irresistible manager of Scandals, share a hot night of passion. She knows they have no future. He is not her baby daddy and would never want to be.
New evidence indicates that their father had been murdered, and they must focus on finding the killer…who also wants them dead. When Killeen is faced with the decision to save her baby, her lover or her new brothers and sisters…who will she choose?
You get a sense of Killeen’s starting point on her journey with the opening of the book.
He left me with two broken DVD cases, a pair of worn-out Nikes and a plus sign on my pee stick.
I was sitting on the floor, leaning against the couch with my legs stretched forward under the coffee table. Sunlight filtered through the crack where the drapes didn’t quite meet, which told me it was morning… the morning after the worst night of my life.
A banner saying “Congratulations Graduate” strung between the light fixture and the curtain rod. A dozen maroon and gold balloons that had been bouncing on the ceiling last night now lay sadly on the floor, no longer buoyant. I knew exactly how they felt…deflated and totally used. Their short, happy lives were over. Just like mine.
Bottles, beer cans, red Solo cups and other trash covered every surface imaginable. Somebody was going to have to clean all this shit up. That somebody was not going to be me.
Fuck Brandon! I thought we were going to be together forever. Well, apparently, he had a different definition of forever than I did. Last night was supposed to have been really special. His graduation party and our pregnancy. I’m just glad I was smart enough not to announce it at the party. No, I waited until everyone had left to tell him. I wasn’t sure what his reaction would be, but I hadn’t thought he would have a meltdown.
I knew it would be a surprise. It had been for me. A baby was the absolute last thing I needed in my life right now. Brandon was the only guy I’d ever gone past second base with in my life. Imagine that! I was an eighteen-year-old virgin two years ago when we met. That’s like finding a unicorn in a used car lot.
