Liam and Jareth have been married for eight years and realize they want a child. Things do not go very well when they try to adopt through agencies, with terrible accusations thrown at Jareth. After taking time to recover, they proceed with a private adoption, bringing home a beautiful little girl, Carinae. Then things get really ugly, endangering not only Liam’s life, but also Carinae’s.
Review: This is a sequel to the absent-minded astrophysicist. You don’t have to read both books as this one tells the backstory quite well but you will want to anyhow.
In this one, Jareth and Liam have been married a round six years and Jamie, Jareth’s brother, and his wife is having a baby. This gets Liam to wondering if Jareth wants children and sets a very wild string of events in motion. Liam is so smart and always thinking about his work and things, he doesn’t pay attention and is very accident-prone. This causes some serious problems for their relationship and their quest to adopt a child.
One of my favourite things about this author is the ability to pull off such an extremely sweet love story without it feeling over the top. There is enough suspense, mystery, and twists that this sweetness acts as a buffer. A perfect blend of emotion. I love the attention to detail with each character and I also love the interaction of the pets. There is a sweet little bonus at the end for all you slaves of cats.
I highly recommend this if you like a sweet loving romance, twists, ex-military man, security guards, scientists, babies and cats.
