Surrogacy is an amazing gift that one person can give a couple that are not able to have children of their own. The surrogacy process is time consuming and often fraught with pitfalls along the way. But for many couples and the women prepared to be surrogates, the resulting child makes all of the issues associated with surrogacy seem irrelevant. After all we are talking about producing a new life here. A very wanted life, and it is for this reason that surrogacy is slowly gaining acceptance around the United States and other parts of the world. The purpose of this book is to provide a factual yet balanced report on both sides of the surrogacy process. On the one hand you will find out who can become a surrogate mother and the processes needed to make that happen. But there is also a lot of information here for those people who are looking at engaging a surrogate mother to carry their longed for child. The book explains the legality of the process (it is different according to what state you live in); who can be a surrogate; what costs and payments are involved and how to deal with some of the issues associated with surrogacy such as the emotional bond between mother and child, what to do when things go wrong and how to make the whole surrogacy process as positive as it can be. What many people fail to realize is that the surrogacy process involves a lot more people than the couple wanting the child, and the surrogate mother. Many surrogate mothers have husbands and children of their own that need to be considered when undertaking something this important. Likewise the couples who are hoping for a child often have to overcome extended family resistance to their desire to use a surrogate, although there are increasing cases of the surrogacy taking place within an extended family framework. At the heart of all this of course is the child. One would hope a blessed, unique individual that while coming into the world in slightly unusual circumstances is still loved and appreciated by a number of different people. Surrogacy flies in the face of hundreds of years of evolution that has seen a woman have a natural bond with the child she carries from before the moment of birth. To go through the pregnancy and then give the child to another person to bring up requires an incredible amount of strength and love on the part of the surrogate. This book celebrates this strength and love and all of the wonderful people who are part of the surrogacy process.

Cloverleah Pack Series, Book 9 Adair was tired of waiting. He knew he had a mate, although they'd never met, and his waiting wasn't made any easier watching Tobias snuggling close with his two mates. He'd thought a lot of the smaller wolf at one time. All he had was the company of his two brothers, and endless patrols trying to keep the Cloverleah pack lands safe. A trip to Claude's with his brothers one night has some unexpected, but pleasant consequences, and after an initial misunderstanding, Adair is suddenly thrust into the world of magic, and the demands of a relationship. Vassago's never had a chance to be proud of who he was. As the second son of the king of the djinn, and being a lot smaller than his father or brother, Vassago spent a lot of time on the human realm, avoiding his family and those who had nothing better to do than bully him. After spending a horrible nine months trapped in Jake Poindexter's body, he knew he had to find his potestatem before he could claim his mate. Unfortunately, that was easier said than done. When help is offered, he's hesitant to take it, but the lure of finally being in his mate's arms was too strong to ignore. The troubles hitting Cloverleah are falling thick and fast. Insane plans of wiping out all paranormal life isn't confined to a few errant humans. It'll take the steadfast nature of a wolf shifter, who still has a habit of saying the wrong thing, and the magic of a djinn who's struggling to believe in himself, before these two will find their HEA. Warning: Contains M/M adult content. If this isn't your preference, please don't buy. All of the books in the Cloverleah Pack series can be read as standalone. However, to fully appreciate the relationships between secondary characters, it might be wise to read the series in order.

The first 20,000 words of this story were published as a free read for the Goodreads MMRomance Group Love's Landscapes Project. 49,000 words have been added to make this into the book my characters wanted it to be. Shane West was used to being the only wolf shifter at the Stockton Police Department. His enhanced senses helped him do his job efficiently and he prided himself on keeping control of his animal instincts. Gay from the first day he'd shifted, he also expected to live his long life alone, and provided it meant that he didn't have to come into contact with any of his ex-pack, he told himself he was happy. And he was. Until Dimitri Polst was assigned as his new partner. Confirmed ladies man, Dimitri Polst knew Shane from before he'd ever shifted into his wolf form. Two years older and from the same pack, Dimitri had made it his teenage mission to bring as much pain and humiliation to pretty-boy Shane as possible. But years later, he searched for that pretty boy, now all grown up, with a completely different mission in mind. Being fated mates was hard enough, but when one man is straight and the other one has no reason to trust, then sparks are bound to fly. Add in a serial killer who is making inroads into the gay population and a possible shifter involvement, and Shane and Dimitri have a lot of thing to overcome before they get their HEA.

The biggest mystery of The Mystery of Edwin Drood is how it ends. It began as a serial, as nearly all of Dickens' novels did, but only six installments were published before the author's death in 1870. What we know about Edwin Drood is this: he is betrothed to a young woman named Rosa Bud; they are fond of each other, but uncertain about their future together. Jasper John--Edwin's older uncle and a frequenter of London's opium dens--is infatuated with Rosa, as is Neville Landless, and the two begin to compete for her affection behind the scenes. Then, on Christmas Eve, Drood disappears, leaving behind only a pin and a pocket watch. What became of Edwin Drood that fateful night is one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in literature and it continues to intrigue readers, writers, and literary historians more than 100 years after Dickens' death.

The Artist and His Alpha Alpha and Omega Series book 3 - standalone. Caden Wolfe lives his life hiding from the world. As an Omega with a brute of an Alpha looking for him, he can't afford to take any chances. He is happy enough with his art, his one good friend Felix and his agent who adores his paintings. It's a far cry from life on the streets and Caden is determined to keep working hard, and stay out of the spotlight. Staying away from all things wolf is easy enough in the city, until he meets the one man with the potential to blow his cover and his way of life, out of the water. Sean Black has it all - a brother for pack, a home pack that is still supportive but far enough away not to interfere with his daily life, a good business, and men who clamor for his attention every night of the week. The last thing he wants or needs is a mate, but after a brief meeting with a gorgeous artist, he realizes his life will change, and not necessarily in a good way. A misunderstanding leads to danger for Caden and Sean has to make a choice. Can he give his Omega what he needs, or should he make sure he's protected and then walk away? A rogue Alpha with an agenda of his own, a trap, and trouble from the council are just a few of the things this couple will have to contend with if they are ever to have their HEA. Warning: This book is an M/M paranormal romance. It includes sexual scenes between two men. It also includes an Omega who will tug at your heart, an Alpha who deserves a smack around the ears at times, and a love story that takes just a little while to unfold. This is based on the true mate trope, so if that is not your cup of tea, then please don't buy any of my books. The Alpha and Omega series are all standalone books, with no relation to each other at all, unlike my books in other series.

But did I mention that the Fates are really persistent?
