He wasn’t what she was expecting...

Derek Carmichael has harbored a secret crush on his best friend’s older sister for years, but she’s always been out of his reach. Now that Hannah is back in their hometown and newly single, suddenly the five-year age gap doesn’t seem so huge. But convincing her to see him as more than just the kid she used to know is another story.

Hannah Willmett can’t believe how grown-up Derek Carmichael has become. The troubled kid from her youth has turned into a sexy, successful TV celebrity, but Hannah’s wary of his player past and the rampant rumors connecting him to beautiful socialites. Still, she can’t help but give in when their attraction reaches a boiling point.

Trying to keep their fling a secret from her overprotective brother is one thing, but when Hannah finds herself unexpectedly expecting, her life is thrown upside down. She and Derek may be becoming parents together, but that’s no basis for a happily-ever-after.

CHARACTER INTERVIEW

Derrick have you always had feelings for Hannah?  When did you exactly realize those feelings? 

I think I fell in love with her the first time I met her, when I was fourteen and she was nineteen. She came into the kitchen, looking gorgeous with her hair coming down around her face, and she opened the oven and pulled out a pie, a pecan pie. I was a goner.

Were they there even when you became a famous TV Star? 

Definitely, though I suppressed them. Hannah was married, you see, and I was trying hard to let go of those feelings.

Hannah was a little resistant to your advances in wanting to be there for her and the baby. What was going thru your head at the time? 

I’ll be honest. I was going crazy! I couldn’t bear the thought of not being there for both of them. All I wanted was to love and protect Hannah, and be a dad to our baby. It tore me up when she pushed me away.

Is the age difference a issue for you? 

Nope, never has been, never will be. Hannah is my dream woman, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Hannah, you are somewhat of a planner.  When you found out you had a bun in the oven did you ever think you weren't going to be able to do it all, especially by yourself?

I must admit I was scared! I mean, it was such a huge surprise, and yes, I was nervous about doing it by myself. But deep down I was also overjoyed at the thought of having a baby.

When Derrick told you he wanted more, did you actually believe him or did you have doubts going thru your head? 

Oh, I wanted to believe him, for sure, but at the same time I couldn’t silence that voice inside my head telling me it was a mistake and I shouldn’t hold him back. I know how much Derek suffered growing up, and I wanted only the best for him, and at the time I thought shackling myself and the baby to him would only harm him. I didn’t want that. I didn’t want him to regret his decision and start to resent me or the baby. It was a very difficult time.

Is there anything you would go back and change?

Yes, I wished I’d never married my first husband. We were wrong for each other, and it took me a long time to acknowledge that. If I hadn’t made that mistake, Derek and I might have got together sooner. But we can’t change the past, and I’m just grateful to have Derek in my life. He’s wonderful, and he’s a great dad. I couldn’t be happier.
