Since her first venture into novel writing in 1992, Kristi Gold has greatly enjoyed weaving stories of love and commitment. She's an avid fan of baseball, beaches and bridal reality shows. When asked what she would be if she wasn't an author, Kristi always answers "miserable."
When a woman reaches a certain age with no man in sight, and she really wants to have kids, well, there seems to be little option but to go to a fertility clinic. Karen decides to make such a decision and to her utter embarassment, she is caught by the stunningly hansome Sheikh. He then strikes a bargain with her to get married. Seems simple right? He wants her. She wants a baby, and he's more than happy to offer her his, er hum, contribution to the conception and let her baby to be born within wedlock. He's also willing to let her have a divorce after the baby is born. But little does she know that he has a long term plan in sight and hopes to convince her to see him than more than a donor...
It's nice to read a story where the guy is more interested in the girl, then she is in him. A rather pleasant story all in all. I was, ironically, more drawn in by the sub plot involving Karen's cousin, though I suppose that is purposefully done so that you would read the subsequent book in this series.

Karen Rawlins is the long lost cousin of the Barone's. She found out about the Barone's through her grandmother's diary who had passed away. She found out that her grandmother had stolen a newborn out of the hospital and raised him as her own. When she approached the family, she was accepted with open arms. They made her feel welcome with a welcome to the family party. That is where she met Sheikh Ashraf ibn-Saalem. An amazingly gorgeous man that caught her attention from the beginning with a mind spinning kiss. Ash fell head over heels with Karen, but she kept her distance. She had recently gotten out of a bad relationship with a man who was at first nice, and then wanted to control her. She also dearly wanted a child. She was heading for a fertility clinic when Ash made a counter offer. He would offer to father her child. Two stipulations...she must marry him and he would remain a part of the child's life even if she decided to divorce him after the child was born. She didn't figure the conception with a man like Ash would be a hardship...but she wanted to be sure he couldn't control her. She would agree if a prenuptial agreement were written outlining everything she wanted. He agreed. Ash had been engaged before to a commoner, but his father bought her off and she left Ash. He never forgave his father and left for America where he has been for the last 15 years. Although Ash was attracted to Karen, he figured he could convince her to stay with him even after the baby was born. At least, he hoped. But he would protect his heart at all costs. She also wanted to protect her heart from being hurt again. Only time would tell. The attraction between these two is fiery and sizzles. Two people both hurt by love and now making new life together. An excellent romantic read with a lot of hot action between them. This is book #9 of 12 of the Dynasties: The Barones
