Three years ago, Kara Bianchi’s husband died in the line of duty. The fact that they never started a family is the one thing that she can’t lay to rest. Knowing that she could never love again, Kara decides to conceive a child in a more…non-traditional way. All she needs now is the ideal DNA, and she’s found it in Derek Martinez.
Physically he’s a perfect specimen, with dark features so much like her late husband’s. Then Derek suggests changes to the insemination contract, and he threatens to disrupt not only her plan, but Kara’s entire highly structured and ultra-organized world. She would be required to let down her guard and join the living, no matter how vulnerable that would make her. She can do it, she’s a strong woman. It shouldn’t be that hard to resist Derek’s charms. She’d just have to think with her head, and not her heart. When ghosts of Kara’s past surface, Kara isn’t sure that she can trust her heart anyway.
Man Derek Martinez is one hot guy worth having even for a little fling. These two were great and man the passion between them is hotter than ever. Alanna definitely has a hit with this one and I can’t wait for more from this talented author.
I was blown away by this story. It has everything...wonderfully developed characters, a delicious love story and a bit of suspense thrown in. I absolutely adored the building, halting relationship between Kara and Derek. Seriously, this was one of the best books I've read in a very long time. Nice job, Alanna Coca. I can't wait to read more from you!
