Baby By Contact
Harlequin SuperRomance, May 2008
Sentinel Pass, South Dakota postmaster Libby McGannon feels her biological clock ticking and wants a baby without a husband. Not happy with the locals, she offers half her share in the family gold mine over eBay for a sperm donor. To her shock thousands of people offer their DNA to her.
After sharing emails and phone calls that prove their compatibility, TV actor and reality show host Cooper Lindstrom arrives in Sentinel Pass to complete the sale. He needs money to pay off his recently deceased mother’s gambling debt; her bookie will kill for his cash. His two former wives also demand their monthly stipend form their divorce settlements but he has no funds to meet his legal requirement. As they fall in love Coop decides he wants to raise their offspring with his beloved Libby. However, he knows he failed to come clean with his real reason for coming to the Black Hills; creating a situation comedy based on Libby’s offer. He fears when she learns the truth she will kick him off the Plains back to the Pacific Ocean.
BABY BY CONTACT is an amusing lighthearted contemporary romance that plays out on two subplots. First there is the obvious typical romance between the lead couple. Second there is Coop’s humorous assessment aside of everyone he meets as possible characters on his upcoming show. Fans will enjoy this South Dakota takes Hollywood frolic.
