An unexpected twist of fate gives way to a love that will last a lifetime in Scarlet Wilson’s enjoyable and emotional Medical Romance, A Bond Between Strangers.
When his wife Tabitha had walked out on their marriage after she had discovered that she couldn’t give him the family he had always wanted, John Carter had felt nothing except relief that he no longer had to pretend to love the high maintenance woman whom he knew he should never have married. John didn’t miss Tabitha or her incessant spending and constant hissy fits, but not having a child of his own is a regret which wounds his heart. With a failed marriage behind him and his fortieth birthday looming, John fears that he has missed his chance of making his dream of having a family a reality.
John had resigned himself to spending the rest of his life on his own – until one day a letter from an IVF clinic drops through his letterbox and informs him that there’s been a mix up and a stranger he’s never met is carrying his baby! John is absolutely floored by this bombshell, but shock quickly gives way to a determination not to lose this last chance at fatherhood. However, before he can claim his miracle baby, John must first find Lily Grayson, the woman whom years ago he had selected as an egg donor to give him and Tabitha the child they couldn’t conceive naturally. John hires a private detective to track down Lily, however, when he finally claps eyes on the woman who could make his fantasy of being a dad come true, he is stunned by the sheer force of attraction that draws him to the courageous, intelligent and heartbreakingly beautiful nurse.
Lily was flabbergasted when she had learned that an administrative mix-up had resulted in a complete stranger to be wrongly implanted with her eggs. With the paparazzi camping out on her doorstep and the media desperate to splash her turmoil all over the newspapers, Lily needs to keep a low profile and to find a safe place to hide from the unscrupulous glare of the spotlight. Turning to John Carter – the only person in the world who could possibly understand what she is going through – seems natural. But their convenient arrangement quickly leads to an all-consuming attraction which they simply weren’t prepared for…
Are John and Lily strong enough to face up to their feelings for one another? Or will they allow the obstacles standing in their way to tear them apart?
