Jane Graves Black Ties and Lullabies is a gorgeous romance that will leave you smiling. I simply love this novel! Bernadette and Jeremy create enough sexual tension to make the pages sizzle. I don’t normally go for the one-night stand leads to unexpected pregnancy storylines but Ms. Graves has changed my mind. Black Ties and Lullabies provides the reader with a wonderful love story. I love how the pregnancy forces both characters to take a good look at their lives and decide how to move forward. Jeremy is as hilarious as he is hot. He makes me laugh with his good intentions and his ability to get his way on the sly. If you are interested in a romance with tons of heart then Black Ties and Lullabies is for you!
