The Minneapolis Star-Tribune writes, "Next to Tracy and Hepburn, no one does romantic comedy better than Susan Elizabeth Phillips." For proof, you need to look no further than Nobody's Baby But Mine. This classic comic love story from perennial New York Times best seller Phillips unites a beautiful, brainy scientist desperate to be a mom with a brawny, smoking hot jock who, though handsome enough to father her child, is nowhere near as stupid as she wants her baby’s daddy to be.
Dean Robillard is the Chicago Stars' hotshot quarterback. Not only does he have lightening reflexes on the field, he is also utterly gorgeous.

Along the way he meets Blue, a beautiful woman down on her luck, and as they spend more time together their attraction grows.

In December 1937, in the capital of China, one of the most brutal massacres in the long annals of wartime barbarity occurred. The Japanese army swept into the ancient city of Nanking and within weeks not only looted and burned the defenseless city but systematically raped, tortured and murdered more than 300,000 Chinese civilians. Amazingly, the story of this atrocity- one of the worst in world history- continues to be denied by the Japanese government.
