Author Biography

Paula Barnestead lives with her family and two dogs in the Pacific Northwest. A romantic at heart, Paula decided to try her hand at writing the romances she so loves to read. "I thought I could develop a plot, identify characters, and write away. I soon found that the characters have their own personalities, and their own stories they want to tell. They also have friends they want to introduce, who also have their own stories to tell." Will I Do? (Katherine Burrows and Robert Harrison) is the first of the Harrison Clan Romances. Next came Together Again (Sean Taylor and Kelly Danvers) and Pediatrics and Portraits (Greg Seth and Vicki Clarke). Paula says about her next book, "I'm not sure which couple will win the argument about who comes next...Marga and Cam, or Hank and Shari. Although Jack and May Gabriel think telling their story would give Budin more prestige around the world."

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

Will I do? by Paula Barnestead is the story of a couple who tried to find love in the right place, but things fell apart because of one little lie. Meet Robert Harrison, who is smart, suave, handsome, a good doctor and is incredibly wealthy because of a cosmetic firm owned by his family. Throughout his life, he failed to find his one true love because all the women want to nab his fortune and misuse it. But when he finds that one perfect woman across the room and falls in love, devastation is waiting right around the corner.

Katherine is one of a kind, and honest to a fault. But her life has not been an easy one. Being a good doctor and a genius to boot, she gives her all to her clinic in Geneva, Switzerland. When she met Robert, she felt that she had found the one true love of her life and she didn’t give it another thought before marrying him. But she did one thing wrong: she didn’t tell him that she was a very famous, very rich doctor. When the truth comes out, misunderstandings become a mountain. Will their love conquer these misunderstandings or will their pride make things even worse?

A really interesting novel! It pretty much sums up how relationships are destroyed due to misunderstandings and a couple’s inability to give each other a chance. I truly enjoyed Will I Do? by Paula Barnestead because it went into the heart of the matter and actually gave a realistic example as to how couples can work things out if they really mean it. Plus, it is very refreshing so people who love to read romance will enjoy it immensely. A really great novel. I enjoyed it. Kudos for a great cover.

Will I Do? First in the Harrison Clan Romance Series by Paula Barnestead is romantic fiction. Robert Harrison is a wealthy doctor, heir to a famous cosmetics company. Katherine is a wealthy woman, also a doctor, who is on medical leave. They meet across a crowded room, Robert falling for the beautiful vulnerable woman. She tells him that she has to get married and, believing that she is pregnant, he swears he will protect her and look after her. The trouble is, this happens a lot to Robert; women realize who he is and that he is wealthy and throw themselves at him, declaring true love. He thought Katherine didn’t know who he was, so when he finds out that she isn’t pregnant and married him for money, his betrayal knows no bounds. He falls on his wife in angry passion but, after one night of unprotected sex, he treats her with nothing more than disdain. Until the unthinkable happens and life changes forever.

I was expecting a Mills and Boon or Silhouette type of book when I picked up Will I Do? by Paula Barnestead, but I was wrong. The story had some real depth to it, a real story that I’m sure many people across the world can identify with. I found it to be well written, with a natural flow to it, and the characters were written in a manner that engaged the reader. I would be interested to see if the next in the series follows this one or is a different story altogether. I look forward to it.
