After witnessing a horrible tragedy,officers Nell Granstrom and Hugh McLean masked their grief with passion, and now they're about to become parents. This is not good news for Nell, a single mom, who is trying to keep her teenage daughter from making this exact mistake. So Hugh comes up with the perfect solution: marriage. Janice Kay Johnson's MATERNAL INSTINCT (3) will touch readers on many different levels, such as fear and joy, as this couple surmounts life's little roadblocks. (Some may take issue with Nell and Hugh's level of intoxication during their encounter.)
