Andrea Gaspar and Luke Hamilton have nothing in common other than they are both desperate. They both need money to realize their dreams and Sun-Laurel, a private adoption agency, is their last hope. All they had to do was have sex three times, conceive a child and they would each get their hearts desire. Little did they know that fate had other plans for them

Andrea is a marine biology student working on her Ph.D. and needs $100,00 to finish her study on dolphins. Unable to get a loan, she is willing to give up 1 year of her life to have a child for an infertile couple. She was a little taken aback when she is informed that the conception would be done the natural way. But she is willing if it means she can finish her work. She didnít bank on Luke Hamilton.

Luke is a trust-fund baby, playboy and all around goof-off. He has finally found something he wants to do, invest in a night club and now his parents wonít help him. With no other options, he agrees to give to the cause and father a child for $60,000. What he doesnít expect is beautiful, sexy, innocent, Andrea Gaspar. This definitely is not going to be a hardship. What he never bargained on was developing feelings for her he had no idea how to handle.

What follows is a raw, intensely passionate, lust-filled romp. Luke is honest and open with a few rough edges. Andrea is smart, passionate but a little repressed. With no family, she is unused to sharing her feelings with people. She is not quite sure how to deal with Luke. So she tries to keep her distance, but Luke makes it hard. When circumstances force them to make a difficult decision, they both have to reevaluate their reasons for doing this and what the future will hold for them.

I liked them. They are two uncertain people trying to make the best of an unusual situation. The language is raw, the sex is hot, frequent and intense. Baby Mine is the first book by Emma Bruce. I look forward to seeing more from this talented author.
