NINE MONTHS WITH THOMAS (4.5) by Shirley Hailstock: This story depicts a nearly perfect evolution from attraction to love! Out-of-work social worker Meghan Howard agrees to be a surrogate mother if the biological father marries her. Still mourning the death of his wife, Thomas Worthington Yates is appalled to learn that her parents have arranged for a surrogate to carry their last fertilized egg. It's their last chance for a grandchild, and Thomas knows it's his last chance to become a father. After agreeing to Meghan's request, he finds himself doing the unthinkable -- falling in love with her. Soon their nine-month agreement is not enough for either of them, especially when tragedy strikes.
