I see a man - Will, and there's a son - said the fortune teller to nineteen year old Jesse. I don't know any Will and me having a baby - she's must be crazy - no way says Jesse.
Meet twenty-five year old Jesse James whose father has ruled over her and treated her like the son he never had, including giving her his name. When her father dies, Jesse decides to move back home to restore their bed and breakfast, Katherine's. After the reading of his will, Jesse finds out that, even in death, her father is still managing to have control of her life. In order for her to receive the money needed to restore the bed and breakfast, Jesse will have to either get married or give birth to a male child before her 26th birthday. Out of what is considered the two evils to Jesse, she picks having a baby. Now Jesse's only problem is finding a man to father her child without him knowing it. Jesse seeks the help of her best friend to start her transformation. And of course, she is turned into this gorgeous woman.
Meet William "Will" Jones who first sees Jesse and believes her to be a groupie. But there is something different about her. Of course, he meets her and they have a night of unbridled sex. Will wakes up the next morning to find he is in bed alone. For the life of him, he can't figure out why Jesse would offer him her virginity, and then just up and leave without saying anything. Jesse leaves a thank-you note in the bathroom written on the back of a gas receipt. Now, Will knows he's been tricked and sets out to find her. And even though Will would like to see Jesse again, his main concern is finding out what kind of game she is playing and whether or not she's carrying his child. It doesn't take long for him to locate Jesse. Will Jesse trust him with the truth? Will he stay even when he finds out the truth?
A WILL TO LOVE is a very enjoyable romance. I love the little twist to the storyline. It was very realistic and believable. I highly recommend it highly.
I know people have one night stands all of the time, but with the intent purpose of getting pregnant? I thought the set up to the story was a little far fetched, but once it got started and the characters began to be developed it was a good read. I am so glad that Will was a stand up guy. Kudos for someone doing the right thing and just wanting to help out. Good romance. Hot scenes! Nice comfy Saturday read.
Ever since tomboyish, twenty-five year old Jesse James can remember, her father has ruled over her and treated her like the son he never had, including giving her his name. When he dies, she decides to move back home to restore Katherine's, the dilapidated family-owned bed and breakfast. After the reading of his will, Jesse finds that even in death, her father still manages to have total control of her life. In order for her to receive the money needed to restore the bed and breakfast, Jesse will have to either get married or give birth to a male child before her twenty-sixth birthday. Knowing full well she doesn't want to be tied down with a member of the opposite sex, she decides on the latter. Jesse's only dilemma will be finding someone to father her child without knowing it.
William "Will" Jones awakens from a night of unbridled sex with Jesse--sans protection--to find himself in bed alone. He wonders why Jesse would offer him her virginal body, and then just up and leave without so much as a goodbye. After Will finds a thank-you note written on the back of a gas receipt in the bathroom, he realizes that he's been used. Although Will would like nothing more than to see Jesse again, his main concern is finding out what kind of game she is playing and whether or not she's carrying his child. Utilizing the location on the gas receipt, it doesn't take him long to track Jesse down. When Will arrives at Katherine's, he is prepared to stay for as long as it takes Jesse to reveal the reason for her deception.
A WILL TO LOVE is a very delightful romance with a little twist. The storyline was realistic, and I enjoyed getting to know each and every character. Daniels does a fantastic job in capturing and holding the reader's attention. I highly recommend you read this novel.

I really enjoyed this book. I loved Will! I thought he was hilarious at the club when he first met Jesse. I felt for Jesse because it seems she was always on the outside looking in. Will was my kind of man. I found it to be romantic and very sweet.
This was one of the best books I have read. To keep from ending the book so soon, I would go back and re-read previous chapters. The book always kept my interest and I loved the way the author portrayed Will, as a strong and caring black man. Jesse was independent but yet could let Will lead when needed. And the love scenes were too hot. I will be reading this book again soon.
