Not Through Loving You by Patricia Preston – Book Tour + #Giveaway


by Patricia Preston
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pub Date: 6/20/17
In the Southern town of Lafayette
Falls, a new life brings together a woman with everything to lose and
a doctor with everything to prove.
When a sickly infant is surrendered at
the Lafayette Falls Medical Center, and orphaned soon after,
pediatrician Aaron Kendall arranges to adopt him. After a painful
divorce, the busy baby doc is about to realize his own dream of
becoming a father when the baby’s beautiful estranged aunt turns
up. She doesn’t exactly approve of the Kendall bachelor pad, complete
with Aaron’s cranky dad and wacky brother, forcing Aaron to form a
risky alliance with her.
Country singer-songwriter Lia
Montgomery barely knew her half-sister, but she’s determined her tiny
nephew goes to a good home. If only she fit the bill herself, but her
stressful life on the road is no place for a baby. Yet despite her
misgivings, as she gets to know Aaron, she realizes the smart and
sexy doctor is everything a child could want in a dad—and more
unsettling, everything she’s ever hoped for in a man. After all she’s
put him through, is it too late to form a family—and maybe put a
song in the good doctor’s heart?

Lia looked into Aaron Kendall’s irate blue eyes. She hadn’t expected

handsome. She had thought he would be older, bald on

top, definitely glasses, reserved with an adoring chubby wife at his

side. She had pictured them as a sweet couple who were thrilled by

the prospect of having a son and who would give Candace’s unwanted

baby the home he deserved.

How could she have been so wrong?

“All right. Tonight.” She needed time to think through this latest

wrinkle in her life. “I’m staying at the Lansdale Hotel. There’s a

small restaurant in the hotel. We can meet there.”

She glanced at his hand that was still on top of hers. He was the

kind of guy who was available because that’s the way he wanted it.

Why else would he be single? He was attractive. Tall with the lean,

athletic build of a man who was no stranger to physical activity.

The deep crow’s feet on the sides of his eyes revealed that he was

in his mid to late thirties. He had a little scar on the side of his chin.

She wondered how he got it. She wondered why his wife had left

him, and when she met his gaze, she wondered if he realized they

were close enough to kiss.

“I’ll see you at eight.” He released her hand and stepped back.

The tension rolled off him in waves. “It would be good if your sister

joined us as well.”

“Yes, that would be good,” she said before she slipped inside the

Jag. She let down the window. “Unfortunately, Candace is dead.”

She left Aaron Kendall standing speechless in his driveway. Four

days ago, that news had left her speechless, too, when a scruffy girl

named Kelly had shown up on her doorstep with a duffel bag containing

Candace’s belongings as well as a box holding her ashes.
