UNEXPECTED GIFTS (4) by Holly Jacobs: When family sciences teacher Elinore Cartwright finds herself single and pregnant in her 40s, her college professor boyfriend Arthur wants nothing to do with fatherhood. Unwilling to give up her potentially last shot at motherhood, Eli goes forward with the pregnancy and finds help from an unexpected source. Store owner Zac Keller had always had a crush on her, but her boyfriend's presence kept him away. Now that she's single, Zac makes his desire for her -- and her baby -- very clear. Jacobs' characters display real warmth, and her touching story shows that family isn't always about blood relations.
