They can't forget the past, but is it enough to create a future?
When an accident leaves her guardian to her six-month-old niece, Emma Stanton must return to her small hometown of Hastings, Montana to find the one man she's spent the last eight years trying to forget. She and Dillon had grown up together--he was her sister's best friend. But that hadn't stopped him from sharing a kiss with Emma that had followed her through the years. Now, not only must she break the news of her sister's tragic death to Dillon, but she must risk the only family she has left and tell him he's the baby's father.
Wealthy nightclub owner Dillon James has been used for his name and money one too many times, so when he comes face-to-face with Emma Stanton and her gorgeous lips, he's determined to keep things light. All he wants is to be the father his daughter needs, to make up for not being there for her and her mother. But spending time with Emma, as she shows him the ropes of caring for his daughter, is wearing down his defenses. Perhaps it's time he took a chance on love.
If only he can convince Emma to take a chance on him...

One tragic death after another left one woman alone with her sister's daughter, Annie. She now needed to let one man know that he had a daughter, and hope that he would not take her away from him since that was all she had of family.
Emma Stanton was alone at her sister's funeral but didn't want anyone around. Days after her sister's funeral, she found a letter indicating the father of her sister's baby. She knew she had to see him again, but was afraid that he would not let her be a part of Annie's life. Only she misjudged him, as he was not at all what she remembered him to be. All she remembered with the teenage boy that got her sister into trouble. Now he was all grown up and sexy as hell. She wanted to touch him all over, but somehow she couldn't because that was her sister's lover.
Dillon James had a badass reputation and of course he had groupies at his club that worshipped him. But then he looked up one night in his club and set eyes on Emma. He could not believe she was actually in his club. He had a major crush on her in high school and now with her here, maybe he had a chance with her. But when he learned that he was Annie's father, he accused her of doing it for money. I couldn't believe he'd think that, but he had his reasons. Both Dillon and Emma had issues in their past that they needed to work out, but something fierce was happening between them. The anger, lust, want were in both of their eyes that it was not surprising that when they kissed for the first time, it was hot.
There are so many moments that will break your heart because Emma has a past that did not allow her to trust men and Dillon had his legions of women only wanting one thing—a hand in his bank account. Then there are so many tender moments between Dillon and Annie, it warms you heart seeing Dillon being a father, feeding his daughter, making faces at her to get her to giggle and especially nap time where they both fall asleep together. It breaks your heart when he wants nothing the next day after a wonderful night together with Emma, but it hurts even worse when he realizes he misses her warmth in his house, especially in his bed.
THE PLAYBOY'S BABY is the first book that I have read by JM Stewart and I loved it. It showed me that there are men even in fiction that would do whatever possible to be the father a child needs. Even when there was a possibility that the baby wasn't even his. This is a sweet romantic story that thoroughly described each character. JM Stewart's writing ability had me hooked from the beginning, as the story was smoothly written. The blend of romance and caring and learning to trust—really trust—was a long hard road because of Dillon. The love scenes were just perfect that left you longing for more.
THE PLAYBOY'S BABY is the absolute perfect read for the hopeless romantic.
