Twice the Trouble by Sandra Dailey
Lacey Carlyle has more trouble than she can shoulder when the farm she has built into a viable business is bought for development. Desperate, she wants the new owner to consider selling to her only he’s Alex Benson, who abandoned her thirteen years ago.
Alex wants revenge for Lacey’s betrayal. He’s never gotten over her and hopes forcing her into a short-term marriage will free him from his past hurt. She never answered his letters and when he was badly injured in an explosion she ignored his plight.
The biggest problem is each still feels the sexual attraction that overpowered them in the past. Lacey can’t tell Alex their lovemaking resulted in pregnancy and the birth of twins she’s been raising alone.
Conflict arises at every turn. Family interference makes problems worsen and neither Lacey nor Alex is ready to trust again.
The resolution results from a building tension and returning love. It was a satisfying read and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for romance.
