    If you like your books with some story line of sorts, this book is surely not for you. And since I like mine oozing with plots, this book was a big fat flop. Rick and Sadie had a tumble three years ago before he went off to Middle East for duty. And when she got pregnant, she decided to keep the news from him so not to distract him (what???). And now he's back in town and discovered that that magical night of unprotected sex three years ago had made him a father to twin daughters.

So he asked Sadie to marry him but she didn't want to get married just for the sake of their daughters (what???). And he asked again after a few pages and she said no again even after they had another unprotected sex. And the book just revolved around that. Pretty boring really, no bad guys to shoot at or a pretty lady to rescue. What a waste of a hot cover.

WTF? Isn't that what happens even when your Grandmother dies? (hide spoiler)] There was some misunderstanding because he didn't tell her something that he totally would/should have told her considering the previous set up for this element in the story. That kind of manipulation just irks me. There was random throw in of POV from the heroine's brother that was totally obvious as a set up for the next book. I don't mind setting up for the next book but this had absolutely nothing to do with the present book. Shenanigans I say. The twins were not yet three and were written age appropriately. The love scenes were fairly well done. Although really, unprotected sex again? No lessons learned? I was provided this free to review from Netgalley.

As often as she turns him down, he strikes back with every enticement he can think of, seduction among them, but the one thing Sadie truly wants he is not offering, his love. I liked the idea of this one, but was disappointed. I struggled with three years of not telling Rick he was a father, although it is rationalized in the story it was something I couldn't get past.

His experience while on duty and the death of a fellow marine have left him feeling a little raw. When he runs into Sadie, the heroine, he is pleased to see her again and reminded of the almost perfect night they spent together three years ago. However his pleasure turns to shock when Sadie reveals that their night together resulted in beautiful twin girls. Angry and hurt that Sadie kept this form him and that he has missed so much of his daughters lives, he tells Sadie that they will get married. Sadie has always known this day would come and wants Rick to be a part of the girls lives but she refuses to marry him. Sadie married for duty once before and had her heart crushed, and she only wants to marry for love. As Rick spends time with Sadie and their girls he tries many ways of getting Sadie to say yes, including them acting on the fierce passion between them, but he is honest about the fact that he can never love her. And love is the only thing Sadie will ever accept. I really enjoyed this book, it has a well used plot but it is written and executed beautifully by the author. The interaction between the hero and heroine was particularly nice to read, and I especially liked the very gradual development of their relationship. It felt very real and believable. There is a nice blend of passion and tenderness in this book, that I feel really works to add depth. I do have to admit that I found the hero's reluctance to love and his sudden turn around a little trivial and it made the HEA feel a little bit clunky. But overall this is a solid and enjoyable read, a good example of what I like (and want) from the Desire line. Originally posted at http://everyday-is-the-same.blogspot....

    A classic romance with a feisty heroine and a hero who is everything I love in a man: strong, honorable, protective, sexy and rich.

He feels it is his duty to marry Sadie and give the girls a two parent family. He is afraid to give in to love because of what happened to a friend. Sadie won't marry for anything less than love.

    Favorite Lines: “His daughters didn’t know him. He was a damn stranger to his own flesh and blood. That knowledge hurt more than he would have thought possible.” (p. 34-eARC) Okay, I have issues with women who hide their pregnancies from decent men.

I understand why the heroine of One Night, Two Heirs did so, but it still irked me to watch her justify her actions. A previous marriage opened Sadie’s eyes to exactly where duty could lead people and she refuses to repeat past mistakes. In addition, she places her role as mother above all others. So a marriage of convenience to Rick just isn’t in the picture. It’s up to Rick to change her mind, but when all he is interested in is a bed partner and raising his kids she has to decide if it’s enough. Can Sadie give up her dream of a marriage based on love? The story was an entertaining contemporary romance written in third person. It is part of the Texas Cattleman’s Club series and part of its plot will continue in Katherine Garbera’s The Rebel Tycoon Returns. If you are getting this book based on the idea of a cowboy novel you may be slightly disappointed. The hero is usually dressed in his military clothes and his service is talked about more than anything. Sure he’s a cowboy at heart and a rich Texan, but he needs to decide if he is going to reenlist or take over the daily operation of his ranch. While I didn’t like the heroine, I was captivated by the bond between Rick and his daughters. There is no denying the sexual attraction between Rick and Sadie, but I don’t know that I believe Sadie is in the emotional position to give Rick what he deserves. I base that solely on the final chapter of the story. This book was just meh for me. I didn’t hate it or love it. Scooper Speaks

He loves his life as a marine but now he is beginning to feel its toll. He is not sure if he should enlist again or retired and take the rains of his family ranch. During his second day back in Royal, Texas he runs into Sadie Price, the woman that has attracted him all his life, the same one he had a one night stand before leaving for his tour of service 3 years ago, the last time he was in Royal. One night he hasn’t been able to forget, the memories of that night made him company and help him through difficult times. Sadie asks him to take her to her house, she needs to tell him something and she needs to do it in her house. At Sadie’s place a big surprise is awaiting for him or I should say two little surprises… after their night together Sadie got pregnant with twins, she never told him anything because she was afraid of breaking the news while he was in the combat zone. Saying that Rick is upset is an understatement, Sadie hided the knowledge of his daughters for three years. Now he wants to do what is “right” and wants Sadie to marry him, to give their daughters a family, but Sadie declines his proposition, she doesn’t want to marry him because she “has or should” marry him, she already marry one man because it was the right thing to do for her family and it end really bad, the guy was a cheating bastard. Next time she gets married she wants to marry for love and doesn’t want a husband who would leave her for months. Rick now needs to decide what he really wants, his marine career or to have a family and if he decides for a family he needs to convince Sadie to marry him. The characters and the plot were a little bit too stereotypical and to be honest in this kind of books the same plots are use and recycle countless times, being almost impossible not to be stereotypical. The good thing One Night, Two Heirs has on its favor it’s that it is well written. I liked the relationships in the book, especially the one between Rick and his daughters and the one between Sadie and her best friend Abby. There was a secondary story between Sadie’s brother Brad and Abby, but this story didn’t have any conclusion, I guess it was a set up for the next book. My final though: One Night, Two Heirs was a fun, sexy, quick read. A contemporary romance with a touch of cowboys and men in uniform, and who doesn’t like those. One Night, Two Heirs was my first book by Maureen Child but it won’t be my last.

So many of us were raised on these simple but fun short novels and this story follows right along with the tried and true format. Rick Pruitt has returned to Royal, Texas, carefully considering whether he will re-enlist for another tour or retire from the U. S. Marines. When Sadie introduces him to his twin daughters, children of whom he was completely unaware, the stakes go up. Now Rick wants Sadie--who he is not sure he "loves" but for whom he has a deep and persistent attraction--and his daughters to move to his ranch, the spread he has inherited from his parents and which has been maintained by his foreman and staff during his years away overseas. Sadie will have none of it, and the story revolves around Rick's efforts to persuade Sadie to accept his suit and her resistance to marrying just for the sake of their children. That he has won the hearts of his girls doesn't help Sadie's position any, so it is a story that sort of rolls along from one adversarial encounter to the next. There really isn't a whole lot of plot here and the story is certainly not new in its basic dynamic, nor is it complicated. But that doesn't mean that this can't be a fun way to spend some time. I know in years past I would take a "reading day" as my monthly respite from my four kids--four kids in five years--and it was a stack of Harlequin fun reads that filled the hours and helped me relax and feel restored. All that being said, the story is well told and testifies to Ms Child's skill to flesh out a very simple plot. Add in the ongoing tussle at the local Texas Cattlemen's Club--a push/pull kind of upset that runs throughout this series of short novels involving a men's club that now admits women and the inevitable changes being wrought by the feminine presence--changes that are being seriously resisted by a number of men in Royal. It is the old tug-of-war between the traditionalists and the progressives. It adds fun and spice to the story and is a very nice seque to upcoming stories in this series. I just flat out enjoyed this book--it is relaxing and certainly not taxing. If you want a complicated, substantive novel this is will not be your choice. But if you want something to read that will hold your interest and be very entertaining, that you will like this novel. I give it a rating of 3.75 out of 5.

He never could imagine he would be a father when he runs into Sadie Price, the woman he cannot get out his mind after one night full of passion. Sadie Price has recently come back home to her childhood town after her failed marriage. Sadie always knew that the day would come that she runs into Rick and had to tell him her surprise. She has to tell him about her twin daughters she gave birth to nine months after their night together. One night, two heirs by Maureen Child is a lovely novel to read. It was definitely fun, surprising and very entertaining. I loved Sadie and Rich as the main characters. The reaction Rick gave us when he finds out about his twin daughters is totally understandable, but his demand for marriage to Sadie is a little old fashion. I know he wants to do the right thing, but haven’t men learned by now that women want to marry out of love, not because it’s convenient. The reason Sadie gave Rick about not telling him sooner, was one I could relate to. At that moment he was in the war zone, fighting for his country and the chance that he would be distracted by this news was huge. She never meant to keep his daughters away from him and she did tell him the moment he was back in town and let him get to know his daughters from the start. The only think I couldn’t understand was the fact that the character had unprotected sex again. I’m not sure it was a little mistake by the author, or that is was the intention to write about this. You should think the characters learned their lessons after the first time, but nope it happened again. Luckily this kind of love stories always ends with the happily ever after. This is a great novel to read on a sunny afternoon, just relaxing in your lazy char in the garden with something cool to drink.

But then again, I couldn’t help myself but have my monthly Harlequin fix. Even though the plot is what I’m familiar with, I couldn’t seems to get enough. I don’t quite get it, but there is something about how each author make the best out of the routine Harlequin plot. Maureen Child has made an exceptional job out of a typical Harlequin novel plot. She made me think alot in One Night, Two Heirs. Simply put, One Night, Two Heirs is about a man and a woman who had one night stand, the man left, the woman got pregnant but did not let the man know until a few years later, and when the man comes back he got all mad and wants his children in his life bad enough that he’s willing to play dirty and seduce the woman to agree into marrying him. Sounds typical? Yes, but the way Maureen Child wrote it provokes a lot of issues. It made me think why only men are allowed to be absent in a relationship. And it also made me wonder how many family… and how many lovers are torn apart because they’re bound to duties and honour? In harlequin novels things may worked out right for people in the end, but in life, it doesn’t necessarily worked that way, does it? Overall, One Night, Two Heirs by Maureen Child is a typical, 2 hour Harlequin read. I’m familiar with the plot, but this one is rather thought provoking. And so, i rate this 3 out of 5 stars. I received a digital copy of this book from Harlequin Publisher via Netgalley. I was not compensated in any ways for writing this review.

Many months later Rick is home on leave from the Marines and having to decide if he will re-enlist or finally come home to the family ranch which has been run by trusted family friends and employees during his years in the military. Seeing Sadie again was, of course, a pleasant happening until she brought him home to her parents' home where she was staying, having returned herself from living in Houston. Imagine his surprise when she introduces him to her twin daughters--and they were his daughters, too. You might say that from that point on, the story was off and running. This is another very readable story from Harlequin that is a fun read filled with some delightful characters, many of whom are continuing the "battle" over whether the Texas Cattlemen Club will enter the 21st century or remain locked in its old and time-worn traditions. Alongside all that fun is the story of Rick trying to figure out a way to get Sadie into a more permanent position in his life, namely his wife--and Sadie trying to figure out a way to keep the status quo. The plot is not necessarily a new one, but the characters in this story are fun, real, full of life and certainly not boring. It is not a long novel but will be a very nice read and one most romance fans will enjoy.

I always wonder about the women who hide things like this from men who are otherwise honorable. Rick is definitely a guy that do the right thing or at least play an active part in his children's lives. He proves this almost instantly in the story. Rick is a good guy and Maureen lets us know that. It is a shame Sadie's character isn't as developed or her twins, they felt like props to the story something I'm not used to in Maureen's stories. The story moves along at a good pace and isn't quite as steamy as some Desire's I've read. It felt more like a Harlequin Romance with some added spice. Still, it was a quick fun afternoon read. Not one of Maureen's best offerings, but still an enjoyable read for someone looking for a romance fix.

    One Night, Two Heirs by Maureen Child is a fast telling story about changes in life that allow people to finally let love into their lives. Sadie and Rick are two characters whose passion for each other burns so bright it’s hard to believe the pages of this book have not caught fire. I give One Night, Two Heirs by Maureen Child 3.5 smirks because the characters were relatable, the storyline was to the point, and there was an ending to satisfy every reader out there.

    I didn't like anything about this novel. I found Sadie selfish and immature. Any woman who is selfish enough to keep a man from his children is impossible for me to like or respect. Then her juvenile reaction to seeing Rick hugging a woman in public was ridiculous and completely unbelievable. The side plot with the also juvenile disagreement between Brad and Abby was annoying. Rick was the only likable character in the entire book and he alone couldn't save this one for me. I didn't like anything about this novel. I found Sadie selfish and immature.

It must have been a shock to come home and find out you have twin girls that are three years old. How will he ever talk their mother In to marrying him Will be an evenings entertainment and worth the read to find out.
