SMOOTH-TALKING STRANGER is the emotional follow-up to Lisa Kleypas's BLUE-EYED DEVIL and SUGAR DADDY but can also be read as a stand-alone.

But ultimately, will a paternity test set things right? If Jack is the father, will he be the one to care for the baby? Would Ella be prepared to let him go? And if not? Ella can t bear to think of an answer...
