Double the Trouble by Maureen Child is a well written, enjoyable second chance romance with a secret pregnancy plot. Colt is a strong hero who flirts with death on a regular basis due to his love for extreme sports. He is an alpha male and is unable to make peace with himself due to a certain incident in his past. Penny is a strong and independent person who does not give her trust easily.
