After a disastrous marriage, Donetta Presley decides to open her own business, a beauty salon called Donetta's Secret. Hope, Texas is the small town where she was raised, and she has the only beauty salon-one in which she has poured all her saving's into. This knowledge, besides the fact that Donetta is his sister's best friend, makes it that much harder for Sheriff Storm Carmichael to shut her down.

Donetta's contractor did not follow code when he constructed her business, and the Fire Marshall has ordered her business to close until she gets the problems fixed. Her contractor, though, is being difficult to find, and rumors are abounding about his "reputation." A break-in of both her business and apartment makes Storm decide that Donetta has to stay with him until things are straightened out. Little did he know his apartment would become a makeshift beauty salon!


To add to her troubles, or rather his, Donetta has just found out that she is pregnant. Storm is determined to marry her, but Donetta is just as determined NOT to get married again. Can he convince her that all her reasons not to get married, are really no reasons at all?

SURPRISED BY A BABY was a delightfully fun and romantic story, with many humorous areas to it! I fell in love with the characters in this story, and wished I had a Storm of my own! Part of the series of TEXAS SWEETHEARTS, I can hardly wait to read the rest of the stories! Ms. Neff has written a terrific story and captured atmosphere of the small town life in a Texas town perfectly! And having lived in one myself, it brought back many memories!
