Baby Breakout - Lisa Childs (HI #1344 - Apr 2012)

Series: Outlaws (Book 2) 

Jedidiah Kleyn had been convicted because Erica Towsley hadn't come forward. So the night he escaped from prison, it was with one thing in mind -- find Erica and make her clear his name. But the moment he laid eyes on the angelic beauty, his hatred was overwhelmed by the ferocity of his still-burning desire. And then he saw the child -- his child.

He'd thought that proving his innocence was all that mattered. But whoever had framed him was now targeting Erica and his little girl. And as the woman he'd blamed and the child he'd never known laid claim to his heart, Jed would risk anything to protect them. Because now there was nothing more important than his family...not his freedom, not even his life.

Very good book.  Now that Jed had escaped, he needed to find Erica and clear his name.  Seeing Erica and hearing about what went on at her end made him realize he still had big problems.  Trust was a big issue in this book.  Jed didn't trust Erica, as he thought she was still lying about what had happened that night.  He also didn't trust her not to call the cops.  Erica didn't trust that Jed was not guilty of the crimes he went to prison for.  She would start to trust a little, then something would happen and she'd go back again.  I really wish that she had been more trusting from the beginning.  I liked seeing Rowe and Macy, and was glad to see how much help he was able to provide.  The bad guy was not who I figured at first.  I loved the showdown at the end.  There was plenty of tension and suspense in this book.
