STAKING HIS CLAIM (3) by Tessa Radley: When Ella agreed to carry her sister’s child, she never expected her to change her mind and leave her with a baby girl that she can’t allow herself to love. Determined to find the baby the perfect home, Yevgeny Volkovoy, her brother-in-law, is the last person she would turn the child over to. Yevgeny has already decided Ella is the Ice Queen, and he wants the baby. He begins to see something in Ella no one else does. But what’s going to happen when another family secret comes out? Though the plot is interesting, readers will have a tough time connecting with Radley’s characters, who lack depth.
