I really did like this book despite this rush to marriage proposal in a time span of three days. It was very twisty plot in a way that wasn't all that strange. The heroine and the hero are stepmother and stepson. Unknown to the hero, the father and heroine married based on a deal between the two that if the heroine married him then he would artificially inseminate her with a donor from his fertility clinic, free of charge. So, after the insemination and marriage, the heroine used her nurse skills to care for the father and developed a relationship as friends. It's not until the father gets sicker that he reveals that she's not just pregnant with a donor but with his grandchild. The heroine is so shocked that she runs back to New Zealand and learns of the father's death and funeral from the lawyer too late. The hero, angered by the heroine's actions of not only running away but apparently conspiring with his father into carrying his child runs after her. Note: I would like to take a moment to say to the hero: how stupid are you???!!! This is the man who knew that his father was pressuring him to get married by sending one woman after the other in order to have a child. So, to tick him off, you donate the fruit of your loins at his fertility clinic???!!! Did he ever stop to think that his father would come up with a deal with a woman to carry his grandchild?? The answer: no.....he did not. So, the two of them meet again at the heroine's bed and breakfast. The heroine is faints from the shock and the hero plays along with the lie that she set up: it wasn't the father she married but the hero. So, now in order not to have her poor recovering mother kneel over, they pretend to be the happy couple. So, over the next 72 hours, the hero and heroine learn more and more about each other. The hero learns that the heroine had no idea about his sperm being the donor and the heroine learns his line of work. This leads us to a spoiler: the hero and heroine are colleagues at work. To be more specific, the hero is the editor and publisher to the heroine's romantic and naughty books. Although, the two of them have never met, have only communicated through the correspondence of email. I love this work relationship discovered between the two of them and how they take to it, especially the bed scene (not the intimate type). There were a couple of bumps along the road but I really enjoyed reading it and would recommend it those who are looking for a fun and interesting romance.
