Cole Donovan seems to be a man who has it all. He’s gorgeous, wealthy, successful and well liked, but all that means nothing if there’s no one to share it with him. Thanks to his divorce he’s convinced that women can’t be trusted but he’s not going to let that stop him from getting the one thing he really wants – a child. All he has to do is find the perfect woman to serve as a surrogate mother. The only trouble with his little plan is that the one woman he wants to have his child isn’t interested in his business proposition.
Florist Lucy Chaple is stunned when Cole appears to take a personal interest in her. She only visited his home because her deliveryman quit without any notice and her shop has a standing order at the Donovan home. She’s a hardworking, honest young woman who raised her brother after their parents’ deaths. She’s deeply offended that Cole’s only interest in her is renting her womb and doesn’t hesitate to let him know that she would never sell her firstborn at any price.
In Cole’s experience women are only interested in his money so Lucy’s attitude is refreshing, even if it is a little frustrating to have his plans thwarted. His Nanny Hilda, the woman who raised him and now takes care of his home, has already expressed her disapproval of his plans but Cole’s positive that she’d be thrilled with having a baby in the house. All he has to do is figure out how to convince Lucy to agree to have his baby. The big problem is he’s extremely attracted to her and suddenly more interested in spending time with her and less worried about talking her into having his baby.
Lucy enjoys spending time with Cole and she’s been attracted to him from the moment they met but she also knows how desperately he wants a baby and believes all his interest in her is strictly because he wants her to be the surrogate mother. As if the whole situation wasn’t complicated enough, Cole’s family and friends feel the need to put in their two cents and unwittingly almost destroy all the progress Cole’s made with Lucy.
Lucy and Cole may be on different wavelengths when it comes to expectations but there’s no doubt they’re perfect together. A good portion of the problems between them stem from the difference in their financial and social status, but it’s nothing they can’t overcome. THE BABY INTERVIEW has it all – humor, angst, sexual tension and many emotional situations that make this story one that enchants the reader from beginning to end. In addition to the budding relationship between Lucy and Cole there are other riveting situations that add to the readers overall enjoyment of this story. Robbie Terman pens this story with compassion for the characters and a good feel for their situation. She’s definitely an author I’ll be adding to my ‘watch’ file.
