Last Chances - released 1st October 2012

New Release - Last Chances

By: Ellen Cross

Contemporary Erotic Romance MF

When Jen agreed to be a surrogate mother for her sister's baby, she never thought she would be left pregnant with twins, and alone. A tragic accident claims her sister's life, and sends Jen into a spiral of grief.
Garrick has battled cance
r and won. The fight to save his family's company however, is something he can't possibly succeed in.
Fate steps in and brings Jen and Garrick together for a single night. Can they find happiness in each other's arms, or is their meeting just too painful to bear?


She smiled to herself as she watched his reactions to her words. Too often she had seen men smile and flirt, only to run away with their tails between their legs once they realized she was pregnant. Hell, she wasn't even after a relationship, only a friend. But obviously that was even too much for the average male. Not Garrick, though. The trembles in his hands, and the way he looked at the little foot poking out near her ribs left no doubt in her mind that he was in total awe of her condition.

"I…" Garrick cleared his throat. "I've never seen or felt a pregnant woman's belly before. I mean sure, I've seen them walking down the street and such, but never like this."

Giggling, Jen couldn't help but remark, "Well, I'm not making such a great example for your first one, then. I'm afraid that stretch marks are not a good look on a belly this big. But not long to go and I'll have my body back."

Garrick must not have found the funny side to her words, because his smile fell as he knelt down beside her and placed his hands back on her bared taunt, yet soft skin.

"Are you kidding me, Jen? This is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, and these marks," he ran a finger over her bump, tracing the few stretch marks she had that ran near her flattened belly button, "are something to be proud of. They show that your body has given life…not something everyone is capable of." As he spoke those last words, he dropped his hands, his head bowing low so that she could no longer see his face as he stood up and backed away.

"I'm sorry. I shouldn't be touching you like that… I have no right." He turned away from her and started to walk away.

"I'll, ah, let you get dressed and then we can go out for dinner somewhere, or whatever you are more comfortable with." He stalked away, grabbing his bag from where he had placed it next to hers and headed straight into the bedroom, closing the sliding doors as he went.
