LABOR OF LIES
MAGGIE AWARD FINALIST: 3RD PLACE
Lexie’s world shatters when her scientist husband, James, died mysteriously fighting an outbreak on a remote island. The stress of the grisly news puts her high-risk IVF pregnancy in jeopardy...and when Grant, her playboy brother-in-law, steps in to give her a helping hand, her loyalties are tested.
Lexie knows it’s wrong to be comforted by Grant’s touch. Grant knows it’s wrong to want his dead brother’s wife. But as they begin to unravel James’ dark secrets, the bond they feel is undeniably right.
Lexie and Grant’s lives are forever altered when they discover James had accidentally infected himself with the Zika-like, fetal-deforming virus he was studying right before Lexie’s IVF treatment. Baby Harper could be born with life-threatening deformities. But that's not the only dark secret James had.
