When Dr. Owen Tartikoff arrives at Safe Harbor Medical Center to head the new fertility program, he’s looking forward to the birth of his brother's baby--a baby for whom he donated sperm. Surprise! His sister-in-law isn't pregnant. Instead, they recruited her sister, Bailey, a nurse at the hospital, as surrogate mother.
More surprises: Bailey’s carrying not one baby but two. And when Owen moves into a house he co-owns with his brother, he discovers she’s already living there. The odd couple battle over everything from food to their shared bathroom. While Owen might intimidate the rest of the hospital staff, Bailey’s more than willing to take the sexy surgeon down a few pegs.
Then a shocking turn of events shows they can’t trust his brother or her sister with the twins. Can the hard-charging doctor and the fiercely independent nurse together build a future for their unexpected family?
