The story of Yin Zhaodi fleeing for her life and that of her unborn child sets the stage for romance between Georgine Nichols and Bronson Bailey.

As she comes to grips with the fact that she can't have children, Georgine resigns herself to never falling in love. She feels it wouldn't be fair to disappoint another man the way she did her former husband. It doesn't matter to Bronson that she can't have children. Yet by the time he tells her this, and lets her know he doesn't see children in his future anyway, she's already read his article. It's about unwanted baby girls in China and Georgine decides to adopt one. Bronson can't picture a life without Georgine, so he hopes they can remain friends. But will friendship be enough?

Prepare to lose your heart to the daughters of China who find themselves in the midst of some very gripping current events. This beautiful tale overflows with emotion and the perfectly timed romance falls nicely into place. (June, 256 pp., $9.99)
