Liz Kingston spends her life delivering babies and longs for one of her own. All she needs is someone with fabulous genetic material. Who better to ask than her sexy ex-fling, who has no interest in ever settling down or being a father.
International correspondent Grant Wilbanks loves danger and travelling the world. But nothing in all this Brit’s experience could have prepared him for the way a torrid affair with Liz makes him feel. When she asks for his assistance, he figures he can help her out with a simple donation. No strings, no emotions, just…test-tube science.
But this simple favor gives them both more than they ever bargained for. Grant agrees to her terms, but stepping away gets harder and harder because the more time they spend together, the more he finds himself falling…and losing the battle to safeguard his heart.
Liz Kingston has baby fever bad. She has a short window in which she can conceive due to endometriosis. She is single and looking for a donor. She doesn’t want an anonymous donor. Liz wants to know that her baby comes for good genes. That makes Grant Wilbanks a perfect candidate. He can just give a donation with no strings attached. The problem is he can’t get their torrid affair out of his head. When the donation doesn’t work they rekindle their affair. Grant is not one that wants to be tied down is a world famous journalist who goes on dangerous missions. Liz just might be the one that changes his mind.
In ” an Oyster Shell – A steamy story with a great romance that will leave you swooning.
The Pearls – Grant is a Brit. How can you not swoon over an English character? I might have been a little envious over Liz. So what if it’s just a story! Ha ha! The author made this book tangible. The emotions were vivid making the story palpable.
Liz was a great heroine. She wasn’t afraid to go after what she wanted. She wanted a baby. What she wasn’t counting on was Grant wanting to rekindle their romance. Liz adapted well to the situations and was an easy character to empathize with. Grant was a strong hero who was fallible and afraid to open up. The story hinged on Grant getting over his issues.
This book is part of a series but reads great as a stand alone. It was nice to see the other characters from the series. Everybody is pregnant just about! No wonder Liz had baby fever.
The Sand – The romance got a little steamy at times.
