When tragedy leaves two babies in Kay Donovan’s care, she reaches out to her friend William for help. By the time she stumbles her way through the grief and day-to-day survival, William has become a significant part of their lives. Untangling the connection would be far more difficult for everyone than becoming a real family. But isn’t marrying someone because it’s convenient rather old-fashioned? Kay doesn’t think so. The problem is she’s in love with William, and that’s a little inconvenient when discussing marriage like a business deal.
William had been biding his time in the friend zone. All romantic hopes are put aside when Kay faces one trial after another. Until Kay suggests that their friendship might be enough to make them a family. He’d love to marry her, but can it work if she’s only trying to do what’s best for the kids?
Kay Donovan is in the midst of tragedy. She has just gotten custody of her two nephews that have recently lost their parents. The first person she calls is her friend William. He stands by and helps her with whatever she needs. She starting to see that they are the makings of a family. What she doesn’t want to admit is that it would be more than a marriage of convenience for them she is in love with him. William has been waiting in the friend zone for a long time for something more.
In ” an Oyster Shell – It is an expertly crafted story that will touch many emotions.
The Pearls – It was a story born of tragedy that which blow was softened by the beautiful friendship that Kay and William share. It’s the premise of the whole story and it was a really good one. The concept is good and well executed.
The family dynamics in this story are heartwarming. Kay and William with the boys make a great family. There is also William’s sister and her family. The story is family oriented and I love it.
The romance was sweet. William waited a long time to be more than a friend to Kay. The feelings grew as the helped each other raise the boys. It is one of the best romances that I have read.
The Sand – It was a good story.
