THE TYCOONS SECRET CHILD by Maureen Child is a story about
changes. Life changes, whether you want it to or not.
Some people are egotistical enough that they think,
believe, they can be in charge of changes. Delusional
thinking at best.
Life is about to change big time for corporate hot
shot Wes Jackson. This successful toy giant is going to be
brought to his knees by a little four year old girl. When
the big fall they fall hard and there's no denying it's
love at first sight for Wes when he finally meets his
Now Wes is going to have to use kinder, softer, tactics
than he usually employs in his business dealings. Wes is
determined to let Caroline get to know him as a man and a
friend before he goes all in and tells her that in fact he
is her father. Caroline is probably going to be the easier
sell, well at least easier than her mother Isabelle
You see Wes let them leave him behind five years before
when he just was not willing to, or able to, make any sort
of commitment to Isabelle. Belle made it pretty clear that
she was falling in love with her then boss Wes but wasn't
willing to accept a relationship that was absolutely going
nowhere. Her time with Wes was running out and so she did
what was necessary. Belle returned to her home town and,
with the care and protection of her family and friends, gave
birth to Caro.
It's an old story. Guy and girl have a fling. Accidental
pregnancy happens. Girl decides the baby and herself are just
better off moving on rather than sticking around when there
is no hope for
any future. Wes had his work cut out for him. Caro was a
big surprise, but it also appeared that this mystery family
of his had lots of tongues wagging and all this talk was
bad for business.
So essentially Wes was out to do damage control. What he
never expected was to experience love as only a child can
bring. If he was the smart man all thought, well he
also had to finally face the fact that both Caro and her
mother held his heart in their hands. This was probably
the most important deal of his life and Wes was going to
have to dig deep for an effective strategy.
Maureen Child is pretty wonderful in creating some
heartwarming situations with lovely characters. THE
TYCOONS SECRET CHILD gives us the chance to meet some new
favorites. The folks are just your average wealthy guys
and girls whose lives seem complete except they are all
still searching for their love mates. In THE TYCOONS
SECRET CHILD Maureen Child does a fabulous job of making
these executive types human. Lovely tale of learning about
what is really important in life.
