Product Description

When Hollywood heart-throb Cooper Lindstrom needs money to get his late mother's homicidal bookie off his back, he jumps at the lifeline Black Hills postmaster Libby McGannon tosses his way. In Cooper's mind, their arrangement is simple: his sperm in trade for a share in her family's gold mine. But the real pay off is her story--the one he plans to turn into a hit sitcom that will push him back on top.
The hit show Coop saw coming.
Love? Completely blindsided him.
And the baby? Who could have guessed Cooper wanted to be a father? Too bad Libby--the woman he's fallen hard for--might never forgive him for turning her life into a joke for worldwide consumption. Not to mention the changes he's brought to the small Black Hills community of Sentinel Pass, where happily-ever-after isn't left to chance.

I unashamedly love Debra Salonen's books and Black Hills Baby has earned its place among those books I will go back and reread over and over. Quite simply, it's a keeper.
Libby and Cooper both have their own insecurities. For Hollywood TV star Cooper there's a lack of self belief courtesy of his mother, who has managed every day of his life and career until the moment she died.
Cooper doesn't think he's got much going for him in the brains department as his mother has conditioned him since he was a little boy to accept that he's not the sharpest tool in the shed. What he does have in spades are his looks, a given since he's a Hollywood star, and a sense of compassion epitomised in the way he looks out for his elderly neighbour. As for Libby, well she is also caring and compassionate, but doesn't have much faith in her ability to make a relationship work.
Set in the black hills of South Dakota, this book really does depict a clash of two worlds and I have to say that it was enormously comforting to me to find the backwater charms of Sentinel Pass winning out over the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.
If you like heartfelt love stories, then I feel sure you'll enjoy this one. I for one am now off to look for the sequel, Black Hills Billionaire, for another dose of the same.

This was a really fun story. Cooper and Libby were both great characters. Cooper was the perfect combination of snooty actor and bumbling guy with low self-esteem. It was fun to watch how his character grew throughout his "adventure" in Sentinel Pass. Libby was a very strong character, almost too strong. She spent way too much time caring about what everyone else would think or say about her. It's one of the hazards of being in a very small town. Her friends were a great crew of girls though. It was a fun story to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Welcome to Sentinel Pass 25 May 2016
By Jen Craig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Welcome to Sentinel Pass, South Dakota! This first book in Debra Salonen’s Black Hills series got me hooked right away.

Hollywood heartthrob Cooper Lindstrom’s finances are a mess – after his mother (and manager) passes away, he finds out that she has gambled away almost all of his money. In order to temporarily escape the bookie who is trying to collect on her debts, Cooper travels to Sentinel Pass to earn a bit of money by donating his sperm.

Libby McGannon is the postmaster of Sentinel Pass and doesn’t feel like she will ever find the right person, especially with the limited male offerings in Sentinel Pass. She wants a baby of her own, however, so she places and ad online to purchase sperm for in-vitro. She will give the donor 25% share in her family’s gold mine, conveniently leaving out that it hasn’t produced much gold.

After connecting online, Libby has Cooper come to Sentinel Pass so that they can meet and determine if he is the right man for her needs. When Cooper arrives in Sentinel Pass, he quickly realizes that Libby’s story and the quirky residents of Sentinel Pass would make for the perfect sitcom. He never expected to fall in love with Libby. When Libby finds out about Cooper’s plans, she feels betrayed. Can these two overcome their differences and let love lead the way?

All of the characters in this book are great, not just Cooper and Libby, and I can’t wait to read about the escapades of the others in future Black Hills installments. Well done, Ms. Salonen! If you enjoy small town romances with a touch of humor, this book is for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK, so I finished this book, but... 3 May 2016
By Dromomaniac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I think I was waiting for the lead male to get 'better' and he just never did. He is an under-confident, wussy, childish, weak mummy's boy. But strangely still likable, but in an 'I pity him' sort of way, not in a 'hubba hubba' sort of way.

So I guess if your idea of a romantic lead is a little boy in a man's body who needs saving, this is the book for you. For me, I like the lead to be a strong manly man with a good heart but confidence. That is not Cooper Lindstrom by any stretch f the imagination.

I won't be reading any more of this series, but hopefully other people like the male lead, as the story itself was a good read.

2.0 out of 5 stars I loved the love story itself 12 May 2017
By Dawn Yacovetta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
To be honest, this took me a lot to get through. I think there were about 50 or more pages too many, full of details of feelings and thoughts that were repeated too many times from both the thoughts of the heroine and the hero of the piece. They dragged the story out and helped it to lose momentum.

I thought Libby was a strong character to start, but she seemed to lose that strength as the story moved along. And for someone who spent so much time in the public eye, Cooper spent too much time whining and in a self-pity bag. I loved the love story itself, because I love a good HEA. However, Cooper's thought processes were simply too childish and depressing to me. When he decided to accept the deal with Libby, it would have been nice to see him get past some of the things that happened because of his mother's mishandling of his finances, pick himself up and take charge of the situation. It isn't until he returns to the town that he seems to wants to take any kind of responsibility for his action. And then, it's like night and day, down to his sudden referrals to her as "Lib" and "my love" in public. It just doesn't compute. I could understand the change in pet names once they were in private, but not in a public situation, in front of the entire town...a town, I might add, that he is trying to win over for his sitcom.

Also, we never hear any more about the streak of gold Cooper noticed while he was in the mine. Had he been that hard up for money, I would think that would have been one of the first things he would have pointed out to Libby's brother or to Libby herself. This was just one more thing that didn't add up.

I think it could be a good story if some of the bothersome monologue were to be edited out and if Cooper would actually grow up and take responsibility for his situation sooner. The HEA was perfect, and in fact, I liked the entire scene in the kitchen where she tells him what has occurred since he left. I think this story could be cleaned up to make a good romance. I simply isn't there right now.

Sentinel Pass, South Dakota. Actor Cooper Lindstrom – what a mess – after his mother (and manager) passes away, he finds out that she has gambled away most of his money. In order to try to escape the bookie who is trying to collect on her debts and threatening his life, Coop finds an ad on the internet promising a gold mine for sperm so he is travels to Sentinel Pass to donate his sperm for a share in a gold mine.

Libby McGannon the postmaster of Sentinel Pass is the one who Coop is going to go meet and see if she approves of him and if he is right person for the job of sperm donor if so she will give him a 25% share in her family’s gold mine. of course she is partners with her brother Mac and kinda forgets to let Coop know that the mine hasn’t produced gold for some time now.

When Cooper arrives in Sentinel Pass, he puts into plan his ideal for a sitcom as he realizes that Libby’s story and the quirky residents of Sentinel Pass would make the perfect setting for his newest ideal for a sitcom. What he doesn't expect is to fall in love with Libby. When Libby finds out, after they have made a wonderful connection, about Cooper’s plans, she feels betrayed and rightly so. Can they overcome their differences and let love lead the way or will they both be too stubborn and bullheaded to find out? This is a wonderful read and you will love all of the people they come in contact with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wasn't sure about this book at first 26 April 2016
By WindRider - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure about this book at first. In fact, I'll go so far as to say that I thought (at the beginnings of the book), "Oh no, I shouldn't have got this book. Its sounding kind of juvenile." But as I kept checking it out, I found that Coop had hidden pain and hidden depths too. As that was beginning to shown more and more, I found I liked the book even more. Coop's mother really did a job on him throughout his life and she pretty much controlled more of his life than she should have. He loved her but he also resented some things about her as well. Libby was so easy to like, she was the "good girl" taking a huge risk. Its way outside her comfort zone, and she's hoping that her town will support her decisions. She was always respected and looked up to but her town was part of her extended family and she's looking for them to have her back (like always). Her book club friends were a delightful touch of reality and humor. Libby's brother, Mac and her niece, Megan and her grandmother add to the real family part of the story. And their part of the story is interesting as well.

Coop's one true friend, Shane Reynard was a mysterious person but also the touch of stability in Coop's life. He was a good reliable friend but his personal life isn't delved into too much in this book. Just some hints thrown out. He's a very talented friend and there is a short excerpt of his story added at the end of the book. It's called," Black Hills Billionaire" and it has a Prologue and Chapter 1 included. I have to say the story between Jenna Murphy (Libby's friend) and Shane has my curiosity up. That's because of all the hints sprinkled towards the end of this book.
