Eve is one of 24 'superbabies' which were 'created' from the sperm/eggs of gifted people approx 26 years ago. These superbabies were monitored throughut their lives on a regular basis toi see how they develop. Yes this is a Mills and Boon story, just in case you are wondering. The story starts when one of the scientists who were monitoring the development of the babies, is murdered, and his son Blake (also a superbaby) is asked by his father not long beofre his death, to protect Eve. She is pregnant, which she is unaware of until informed by Blake, which is a result of her being artificially inseminated during an examination by another scientist. As well as protecting Eve, Blake is intent on solving his Dad's murder. It goes from there. Blake's superpowers are that he is a super soldier and Eve is super geek mathematician.

It was a fun read, but predictable including that the skills incorporated by the superbabies, were a bit of a 'no brainer'! It did have some decent, shallow action in it, which was refreshing for a Mills and Boon story, and is a quick and easy read ... and there are times which this is all you need.
