Bundles of Joy


Horses and cattle were one thing, but when it came to baby bottles and diapers, widowed rancher Deke Crandall was a real greenhorn. He didn't want to raise his baby daughter alone, but what was a cowboy to do?


For years Mollie O'Brien had secretly loved Deke from afar. Now, suddenly, the man was asking for her hand! The position of instant mommy was strictly no strings attached, but Mollie was hoping it wouldn't stay that way….

DAUGHTERS OF TEXAS: The hardest working women in the land, the O'Brien sisters—Megan, Mollie and Maribeth—are three brides waiting to lasso the hearts of their very own cowboys!

Bundles of Joy: Sometimes small packages lead to the biggest surprises!

Annette Broadrick was an only child until the middle of her 16th year when her sister was born. Her mother read to her until she read to herself. From that time on, books became her closest companions and teachers.She married immediately after high school graduation in the middle of her 18th year. Twelve months later she had her first son. She ended up having four sons in seven years. People with children do not need to explain what their life was like for the next 20 years. Those people without children do not want to hear about it.Early on, she became a secretary to supplement the family income. Eventually she became a legal secretary and for 25 years she worked for attorneys in Arizona, Texas, Illinois, and Oregon.Her love of books followed her throughout her career as a mother and a secretary. By the time her youngest son graduated from high school she decided to write a book of her own. After writing in a spiral notebook for six months, she rented a typewriter and rewrote the book, showed it to a creative writing teacher, who was also a friend, listened to her critique and rewrote her story. Next she showed it to another avid romance reader and carefully listened to her critique. She rewrote her story once again.Next she mailed the manuscript to the Silhouette office in New York. Two months later she received a phone call asking if she'd be willing to do extensive revisions, including cutting one hundred pages. She said yes. This was in January 1984. By the time the book, Circumstantial Evidence, came out in November of that year, she had sold a total of six books.Since October 1984 Annette has supported herself with her writing. Her career as a published author has also supported her reading habit and in the past five years she has managed to establish a quiet life in the Hill Country of central Texas that soothes as well as stimulates her. She recently completed her 51st novel and is currently working on two others. Annette hopes to continue writing the kind of books that readers enjoy.
