Temporary Dad
by Laura Marie Altom

Three Crying Babies
+ 26 Hours
+ 800 Miles
= One Desperate Man!

Fireman Jed Hale is used to being in control. But twenty-six
hours of babysitting his sister’s infant triplets is
making him feel utterly helpless. His sister Patti was
supposed to be back yesterday.Now he’s worried. But
he’s pretty sure where she is—at the family
cabin eight hundred miles away.

Jed needs a miracle—fast. And that’s exactly
what he gets when his new, very beautiful neighbor Annie
Harnesberry drops by to offer a helping hand. She seems to
have a magic touch with babies and calms the triplets down
within minutes. In an act of desperation, Jed asks Annie to
join him and the triplets on his mission to find
Patti—and Annie accepts! Jed has never needed anyone,
but he’s starting to think that needing Annie
wouldn’t be so bad…

Laura Marie Altom's Bio

Laura Marie Altom is the author of nearly 50 books in three different genres. She's been happily married to her college sweetheart (Go Hogs!) for 25 years and believes their boy/girl twins actively plot to drive her crazy! Now that her kiddos are in college, Laura spends her days contentedly writing and chasing after the family menagerie of pets, ranging from a mutt named Sweet Pea, a mini-long-haired dachshund named Cocoa, a Yorkie named Daisy, and Domino---a black-and-white stealth cat she rarely sees. There are also plenty of ducks and geese who live in the backyard pond but would like to live in the house! When night falls, Laura steals a few romantic moments for herself and her own hunky cover stud! Laura loves hearing from readers and may be reached via email at BaliPalm@aol.com or snail mail at P.O.
