The Millionaire's Proposal: A Destined For Love Novel by [Denison, Janelle] 
Grace Holbrook believed she couldn't have children, but now she was pregnant after just one night with sexy, bad boy Ford McCabe. She was delighted by the news, but not so thrilled when Ford insists they get married, especially when his recent return to Whitaker Falls after eleven years away is shrouded in secrets.Ford has always wanted Grace. Even back when he was the town rebel and should have known better -- until he was blamed for the death of her brother and was shunned by the community. Now a millionaire businessman, he's back to claim what is rightfully his . . . including Grace and the baby they'd created together.  
 AMAZON  I gave it 4 STARS

An emotional story, with really good main characters.  I liked it.

It really struck me in a certain spot in the story how uncaring most of the people in the town had been towards Ford as a young man.  He went hungry for days and no one noticed although they did pay attention to making his life a "living hell", in other ways.  And when he came back there were very few people willing to welcome him back or even try to see him as he was now.  It was heartwarming though that a few did.  

There were some good, interesting people in the story as well.  Ellis, Grace's father was one of the "not so nice" people of the story.  His hatred of Ford was still alive and easy to come to the surface for ELEVEN years.  It's a wonder he didn't have another heart attack after living with that eating him alive.   I really hated how he treated his very much grown up daughter and the way he tried to manipulate her.  While I understood where it came from, I still hated it.   

One of my favorite parts that made me smile?  When Grace was upset about something and she wasn't going to eat.  Ford tenderly but firmly said, "Feed my baby."  There were also other tender moments as well as other challenges to them making a life together.
