Karen Whitmore is tired. Tired of the constant stress in dealing with an abusive, alcoholic father and a mother that wonít leave him.  Having a spur of the moment drink in a bar, she meets the eyes of a blond, extremely good looking man and canít help but wish for someone like him to care about someone like her, even if for just one night.  A few drinks later, Karen has her wish.

Dr. Nick Chandler has pretty much given up hope of finding the siren that seduced and skipped out on him eleven months ago.  That is, until said beauty comes into the emergency room with a sick baby, a baby that could very well be his child.  Trying to keep his temper in check, Nick forges ahead with the babyís exam all the while wanting and demanding answers that Karen doesnít really seem to want to give.  All that changes with one simple DNA test and they decide to try and be parents for their daughter. 

They donít know it yet, but there is a force fighting against them and her name is Amanda.  She wants Nick back and is willing to kill to achieve her goal.

In the Nick if Time is the first novel I have read by Shonna Brannon.  I found myself screaming at my palm pilot because of the way the plot flowed, but in a good way.  I wanted to take Amanda out in the worst way.  I have to admire Nick for the way he accepted Karen and their child into his life.  I thought him quite dreamy. 

In the Nick of Time is a great story.  Intriguing and suspenseful, I read it cover to cover.  I am hoping Ms. Brannon releases something else soon because she is officially on my list of authors to watch
