THE PREGNANCY PROMISE
While she's dedicated to her job as an analyst for Traynor Elliott's security company, Lianne O'Mallory has always planned to marry and have a family. But she's single and facing a hysterectomy -- so time's run out. Then, suddenly aware of his own mortality, Tray offers to marry Lianne and try for a baby. She agrees, without considering the consequences -- such as falling in love with her boss. The first book of Barbara McMahon's Unexpectedly Expecting duet, The Pregnancy Promise (2), places sympathetic Lianne in a nasty predicament, but marriage to emotionally stunted Tray seems a poor solution. There's also little going on in terms of plot or real conflict.
