There's forced proximity, forced engagement, forced marriage by shotgun and by other duress, and now… forced to get pregnant asap! Kelly is looking for a book, and I'm hoping someone can tell me, no, really, that science is real:
I have a HABO request– it's been driving me nuts and my mad Googling/Bing skillz are no help.
I read it when I was in my mid teens, so it dates from late 80s, early 90s. It was one of the thinner Harlequin or popular romances available on the spinning racks at the library.
Our heroine Melanie has just received a diagnoses of sudden onset infertility–if she wants to have kids she needs to get knocked up right away.
Enter Bubba (I think) the neighbor slash best platonic buddy who volunteers his services (or she asks him to help out). I can't remember the middle, but (spoiler alert) when she goes into labor, she is so out of it with pain that she decides that she doesn't want to have the baby after all and tries to leave the hospital.
After reading thousands of romances over the past 20 years, this one is still sticking in my head. I'd love to find the title and be able to reread it!
Sudden Onset Infertility.
Do you recognize this book? IS Bubba on the COVER? There aren't enough heroes named Bubba.
