Dorann Staark is a powerful man who runs the biggest business empire on the planet. Days in the office blend into nights as he does what he’s best at - calculating profit and making acquisitions. It’s a cutthroat game, and it doesn’t leave time for anything that doesn’t affect the bottom line, like romance.
When Dorann decides it’s time to become a father, he naturally chooses the most successful surrogate agency in the galaxy. But for once, his calculations don’t add up. From the very first moment he holds baby Nico is in his arms, Dorann is overwhelmed with brand-new feelings that leave him questioning everything.
Mila Jensen has always counted herself lucky. But when her parents’ livestock farm on Terra-11 is sabotaged, she has no choice but to find work off-planet. And a nanny job seems like the perfect fit. After all, she’s bottle-fed orphaned field-vakka, how different can babysitting be?
But Mila doesn’t anticipate her employer’s wild mood swings, or the deep current of attraction and sympathy she will feel for him, in spite of his unimaginable wealth.
Dorann is shocked by Mila’s unorthodox approach to childcare. But Nico adores the cheerful young Terran, and that’s all that matters. The real issue is that Dorann is finding it harder and harder to keep his eyes, and hands, off the one woman he can’t have.
Can Mila help Dorann see past the numbers to find what’s really worth investing in? If he wants a future with her, he needs to be willing to risk it all.
Because when it comes to the game of love – close doesn’t count.
