Detective Elena Delgado has been up against challenges before, but nothing quite like keeping Brett Connelly at arms length in MATERNALLY YOURS (4). He's the business-man brother of the victim of an assassination attempt, which she is investigating. Elena is also happily and fearfully pregnant, following two miscarriages and a brave last stand via a sperm bank. Her condition leads her to accept Brett's help and support. Wonderful characters add to this warm, engaging story by Kathie DeNosky.
