This surprisingly good romance did have a few things that really bothered me, to the extent that if I were a regular romance reader, I'd probably avoid Winston's books. Since I'm not, I'll read them whenever they come along. Still, writing in 1993 as if being a surrogate mother were akin to the old Scarlet Letter struck a sour note with me - Susannah is going to run far away from her life after she has the baby so that no one around her will ever know what she did. Worse, on the very first page, the man who hires her and his lawyer describe the woman who could be a surrogate and let go of the child as "a mercenary bitch" (not speaking of Susannah, just of a woman who could "sell her child").
