BABY BY CONTRACT
After the death of his mother leaves him at the mercy of a loan shark, actor Cooper Lindstrom responds to an ad offering a share in a gold mine in exchange for his sperm. Thinking the story will make a great television show, he meets postmaster Libby McGannon, the woman who's desperate for a baby. Debra Salonen's Baby by Contract (4.5) is a fun story with a novel plotline. Salonen's characterization is wonderful, and her depiction of Cooper's initial shallowness and Libby's insecurity seems spot on. This is a must read!
