The Baby Bonanza - Jacqueline Diamond

The Baby Bonanza
Jacqueline Diamond
Harlequin American, Mar 1 2015, $5.50
ISBN: 9780373755608

Just before her divorce, Safe Harbor Medical Center ultrasound technician Zora Raditch had a final fling with her then soon to be ex.  Seven months later Zora is single but not carefree as she carries her now married former husband’s twins. 

Zora and housemate Lucky Mendez agree that their live-in landlady Karen Wiggins should not allow creepy Laird Maclaine to move in with them and Rod Vinter, but there are no other prospects.  At a time when Lucky doubts his future is at Safe Harbor, he poorly conceals his attraction to Zora; she acts the same way towards him.  However, soon both want more, but each fears to take a chance; while a third party encourages them that they belong together.

The latest Safe Harbor medical romance (see The Surprise Triplets) is a fine contemporary starring a duet singing I’m Not In Love (10 Cc).  Although the storyline goes exactly as expected, series fan will adore Zora and appreciate Lucky for always being there for his pregnant housemate as if the babies are his.
