This well written story begins with Julie Gregory meeting her friend Loretta's estranged husband, Tom Callahan, to offer her condolences after learning of Loretta's death in a car accident. Julie had never met Tom before and with Loretta's death was faced with telling him that his wife was not alone in that car accident; she was with another man who was also killed. Even more difficult, Julie has to tell him that because she was a friend and relation of Loretta she had agreed to act as a surogate mother understanding that this might help save Loretta's marriage. Julie now understood that it was probably all a sham on Loretta's part; however, she was now pregnant - with Tom's child!Though stunned, Tom persuades Julie to agree to a marriage in name only to protect both of their parental rights. While the story follows with the usual "marriage of convenience," it is made more interesting by the impending birth and Tom's evident, gentle care as Julie's pregnancy progresses. They decide to make it a "real" marriage and well, they fall in love of course. The big surprise - Julie is having twins!This is a warm hearted, uplifting story which I enjoyed very much, and I highly recommend it to you. Surrogate mother Julie Gregory was suddenly the only mother for the beloved baby she was carrying. And the baby's handsome father wasn't even aware she or the baby existed!Yet millionaire businessman Tom Callahan didn't intend to give up parental rights to his sudden heir. He insisted on an ice-cold marriage of convenience..... But the red-hot love Julie felt for her new husband wasn't the biggest surprise of all. They were expecting two bundles of joy---twins! Still, this pregnant bride knew her heart would always be empty without the most precious gift of all..Tom's love.
