A novel by

 
 
A medical condition gives Melanie Randall a very small window of time -- six months -- to conceive a child if she ever wants to be a mother. And being a mother is the only thing she's been sure she's wanted her entire life. After hearing this news, her lawyer boyfriend dumps her, deciding to take some time to find himself because he's just not ready for a family. Shattered, Melanie turns to her best male friend, Robert Jonathan Williams, affectionately nicknamed Bubba.

A sexy blond surfer who lives by the beach, Bubba hung out with Melanie's older brother, Donnie. He's always looked at Melanie like a little sister. But seeing her in such pain, and knowing she's desperate enough to head to some bar to find an unwitting sperm donor, Bubba steps up to the plate.

They decide on a friends with benefits scheme in order to give Melanie her dream of becoming a mother. It's not the way she wanted to have it happen, but at this point she has no choice. She and Bubba go on a few quick dates, fall in like, hit the sheets and conceive a child.

Melanie swears Bubba to secrecy and refuses to tell anyone who the father is. She's going to do this all by herself and not impose on her friend anymore than she has to. Bubba doesn't want her to feel all alone in this most emotional of journeys. Can they manage to make things work amidst the constant interference of well-meaning family and friends? Will they both realize that sometimes the perfect someone you've been waiting for your entire life has been right there by your side the whole time?

Bestselling author Elda Minger has written an emotional story about the courage to follow your most cherished dreams no matter where they lead you. Bachelor Mother is one of her most beloved romance novels, a true fan favorite.
