Denver, Colorado – Present Day

As one of the oldest breweries in Colorado, Beaumont Brewery is steeped in history, even as oldest son, Chadwick Beaumont, fights to retain control of the company. His loyal executive assistant, Serena Chase, has stood by his side during this trying time, but now she appears distracted, which attracts his attention. She doesn't tell him the truth at first, but eventually he learns that she's pregnant with her ex's child. Serena is worried about her future if she's going to lose her job. Chadwick's main concern should be for the company, but suddenly he's there, making himself a part of her life. Can she hide her attraction for him?

Chadwick has always been intrigued by Serena but kept his distance because he knew she had a boyfriend and has a policy of not getting involved with employees—something his late father frequently indulged in, which even resulted in Chadwick ending up with half-siblings. He should be concentrating on staving off those who want to buy out the company, though lord knows he's not happy that his hard work has resulted in the money he earns being squandered away by his siblings. But the closer he gets to Serena, the more she becomes irresistible. He soon plays the role of Prince Charming to her Cinderella, and passion explodes between them. But he's facing the loss of the company, something that will affect them both. Can they plan an uncertain future together?

It's not business as usual in NOT THE BOSS'S BABY, the first tale in Sarah M. Anderson's sexy new series, The Beaumont Heirs . Serena is stressed out about facing the prospect of being a single-soon-to-unemployed mother. Chadwick is working hard to save the company he was born to run, even though his father basically gave him no choice, including beating him to remind him of his priorities. Being alone together gives them the opportunity to get to know each other better, and feelings soon develop. Chadwick seems to find a pregnant Serena sexy as heck, and while she tries to keep him at arm's length, she can't deny she wants him.

Chadwick and Serena have a lot of distractions around them—she's trying to get a response from her ex so she can tell him she's expecting, while Chadwick's working on figuring out the best plan of action for Beaumont Brewery.  In The Beaumont Heir s series, we meet Chadwick's siblings, but NOT THE BOSS'S BABY is totally Chadwick and Serena's story. Their restraint—and determination—to not mix business with pleasure soon goes out the window and the sexual tension swirls between them. But before Chadwick can plan a future with Serena, he's going to have to figure out his company's own future.

A sexy tale of the boss and secretary type, NOT THE BOSS'S BABY is an unusual and intriguing tale readers won't want to miss.
