Cesare Brunelli runs a multibillion dollar empire but yet he isnít a happy man. He hasnít really found what he needs to make him happy and to be honest, doesnít even really know what that is. He has found though that people are treating him differently now that he lost his sight. His vision was damaged on a night when he saved the life of a young girl. He canít really understand why people are treating him funny just because he canít see (even though it is very frustrating to him) and even the fiancťe who said she loved him pulled away.

Samantha was a woman running from her own problems. Things didnít work out with the man she loved and in lashing out to hurt him and heal her own ego, she slept with a stranger. She actually gave her virginity to a man she had never met before. It was an incredible nightóone dreams of are made of. However, this dream found Samantha waking up pregnant.

She found out who Cesare was and wanted nothing from him. However, she did want him to know he was a father. What he chose to do after that was up to her. Cesare was surprised (to say the least) when this angelic and yet incredibly hot voice showed up in his office. Even more surprised to hear that she was pregnant and he was the father.

This woman was the one person in his life right now who wasnít treating him with kid gloves so he had to keep her around. Plus he was not about to not be involved his own childís life. Somehow, she would marry him.

The Brunelli Baby Bargain was a variation between some pretty serious issues and some light hearted humor. I found Cesare very touching as he saved the girlís life and while he had strong emotions about losing his sight, he kept it in perspective. He was dealing with a pretty heavy load but pulled himself up and learned new ways to live. Truly a heroic man if there ever was one.

Samantha was a fiery, high emotion woman and I just found myself chuckling at her. Donít get me wrong this story was not a comedy in any way. When I say light hearted humor, I am talking about chuckling at a character because you could so see yourself saying the same things she is.

Truly an enjoyable read.
