Throwback Thursday - Baby Love

Today's installment features: Baby Love
Author: Catherine Anderson
First published in 1999 by Avon

Desperate and determined, Maggie Stanley grabs her small baby and runs into the snowy Idaho night. In her loneliest, blackest hour, she unexpectedly finds a warmth and comfort she has never known in the tender compassion of a handsome, down-and-out stranger. In Rafe Kendrick, Maggie recognizes a soul wounded like her own—though she knows she must never trust any man ever again.

Rafe is more than he seems—an enigmatic man of secrets who could give Maggie the moon, had he not vowed to spend his life alone. But sometimes love's flames can transform a cold world into paradise—and a man who's lost nearly everything, a woman who's forgotten how to dream, and the helpless child who needs them both can become that most wondrous creation: a family.

This was one of my top 10 of 2010. I absolutely loved this book. It has a classic Cinderella story line that will always be a favorite of mine. It is a story about learning to trust and second chances. I really felt like I got to know Rafe and Maggie and grew to love them and their relationship. Both come to each other with major baggage, but they work through it together. I enjoyed Rafe's courtship of his wife after he marries her. Baby Love is the first in the Kendrick/Coulter series. I have read the books that follow and while they are great stories, this one is still my favorite. 5 stars
