He wanted a son and heir....and he was prepared to pay for it.

A contract for seduction:

Recommends it for: Diehard Harlequin Presents fans, Fans of surrogate mother falls in love with father of baby theme
A young wife convinces her friend to have a baby with her husband, but then hightails it off with her lover, leaving pregnant friend to deal with angry husband, who thinks the friend had something to do with the wife leaving. She dies soon after in a fiery car crash, leaving a friend pregnant with the baby of her husband. What a tangled web!

Not a fan of adultery theme in romance, but this one was so well done. I couldn't help thinking, why didn't they do artificial insemination? Did the husband
This is the most offensive book I have ever read as a category romance. Maybe sleeping with your friend's husband to conceive a child worked in the 1983 smash hit the "Big Chill", but here it just fails miserably. Then again, I was appalled when I first saw it in the movie. But since it only flashed on the screen for a second, and wasn't a major portion of the movie, I could get over it.

However, when you add an asinine heroine that is beyond TSTL, a hero that is AMORAL and two OW (yes two, not
I find it hard giving books a perfect rating, and I'm still a bit unsure that this book didn't deserve it (a lot of outside factors can sway my final vote, like, how distracted I was while reading it). But this was a WELL written book. Elizabeth turned a rather obscure premise into a believable tale of long-suffering and eventual HEAness.

Nadine has loved Cameron since they met years ago (a theme I find massively endearing), and Cameron, it seems had reciprocated at least some of that awareness,
There I was happily reading along about some of my favorite HP tropes. There was even a soap opera esque twist that was fun, when it all went suddenly south. The end of this book was just plain bad. It didn't make sense according to the story as laid out, it was too short and too easy. Mostly though the book was full of misunderstandings and a hero and heroine who were too afraid to admit their love because they knew the other one didn't love them back. So the way the hero approached the heroine ...more

This book was def unusual of its time and I could have enjoyed it a lot more but a few things just didn't work for me. First this book had adultery regardless of the wife encouraging it for the purpose of a baby and the fact that female lead agreed to it using her mother as a reason to justify it when deep inside she admitted to herself she was doing it for herself just wound me up. I think my main issue though is the fact that the hero admitted that he wanted his marriage to work and so I was l ...more

Heros wife couldn’t have children so she enlisted her friend the heroine to be a payed surrogate. The heroine needed the money for her mums vital operation and could go through with it because off course she’s always loved the hero. But insemination happened the old fashioned way so the hero found out she was a virgin. She got pregnant and later saw the heros wife cheating on him so she didn’t want to give up her baby to a possibly broken home. Off course, Harlequinlandia so she didn’t tell the ...more

Girl has secretly been in love with her best friends husband and sees this as a way to have him, if only briefly. Girl and husband have sex and girl becomes preggo. Girl then latches on to the1st excuse she can find to renege on giving up the baby and drama ensues.

Gah. I hated it. Nothing made sense.. The reason for not using AI was stupid. Why would a brilliant lawyer not have a wri
wow...this was all kinds of crazy. Morally, ethically, anyway you look at it this should have been totally repugnant. Never mind that the H and the h come across as complete lack-wits at times, ok a lot of the times. The relationships, pretty tangled ones at that, felt cold and lacking in depth and yet we were supposed to be believe love and caring between these players existed. The plot holes were huge, difficult things glossed over or not addressed. And yet I can't remember when last I was gri ...more

Following in her father's footsteps, Elizabeth Power wanted to be a writer from a very early age. Once she realised that copying Rupert Bear stories word for word from her albums wasn't really the thing to do, she was on her way!

By the age of fourteen, Elizabeth had produced her first full-length novel—alas! never published—and by the age of fifteen her teenage years meant life was so full that al
