WITHOUT LOVE                                THERESA STILLWAGON

Caterer Emma Cook isn't having a good day. Pregnant at thirty-three by a rich and engaged man, she is forced to sign an agreement to keep the baby a secret. She's more than willing. The sooner this is settled, the sooner the whole mess is behind her. Yet when she arrives for the meeting and spies Lucas Benjamin, her real trouble starts. 

Luke’s life, since the death of his beloved wife, has been taking care of his older brother’s problems. So he’s not surprised when a lawyer contacts him with the details of his latest affair. What does surprise him is his reaction to the woman. Usually, he just offers a large sum of money and the difficulty is resolved. But this isn't so easy. This woman doesn’t want anything from the Benjamins, except to raise her child alone. An easy solution, so why isn’t Luke happy about it? 

It’s too easy for both of them to let down their guard and trust. Can they overcome the fact that another man's baby grows inside her? Will the closer she gets to her due date change everything?

     This was a short that was a quick read and enjoyable.  The character's situation was unusual and tangled but saved by a meddling family.  The villain was a true one until the end.
     Our prince in this modern romance was Luke the villain’s brother, who had to learn the hard way, to stop protecting his older brother.  It was not helping because he wasn’t learning from his mistakes.  Plus, he was hurting more than himself but family members.
     Then, you have, Emma.  The unfortunate woman, this time, to bed Mark.  And who gets pregnant after a failed marriage where she couldn’t get pregnant.  She does, by this, as she says “asshole!”
     Luke and Emma never met until the signing, of the agreement to relinquish said baby.  When they do instant chemistry.  Not good. 
     See how this cupid’s arrow that misfired twice effect Emma emotionally.  I give this: 4 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.
