Overview

Charlotte "Charlie" Berglund wants a child... desperately. When her adoption caseworker concludes that being a traveling journalist is not compatible with single parenthood, Charlie realizes she must change her profession. She decides to write a book about New York's hottest new celebrity: Jack Lanett, meteorite hunter extraordinaire.

Unfortunately, her subject is uncooperative. Jack hates being front-page news, but he's found what may be the most valuable space rock in the world: a potentially lifebearing meteorite from Mars. Publicity will drive up the price so he agrees to one interview.

Charlie offers Jack a business proposition. He counters with a most unusual proposal: a marriage of convenience. As Charlie fights to adopt a daughter and Jack fights to keep his priceless discovery, they come together with a passion that astonishes both of them.

    Another Special Book

    Nancy Herkness has penned another gem of a book in Shower of Stars. Charlotte ¿Charlie¿ Berglund has bagged an interview with hotshot meteorite hunter Jack Lanett. Their first meeting is electric. Charlie has always wanted a child but after several miscarriages and a failed marriage, she is looking to adopt. Jack is intrigued by Charlie. She is different from the other women he has known. Jack has overcome a troubled past to become the man he is today. Jack proposes a marriage of convenience when Charlie encounters a roadblock in her quest to adopt. What starts out as a simple arrangement grows into an all-consuming passion. Shower of Stars is a book to treasure. Jack and Charlie have a tangible connection. The passion and chemistry is outstanding. I really enjoyed all the facets of this book.

    SOS - A winner!

    I wished the book would keep going! I enjoyed learning about metorites, meteor hunters and the Kuvasz. The story captured my attention immediately. I can't wait for Nancy's next novel.

But when the social worker tells her that her job may cause her a problem with adopting a baby from China Charlie decides to write a book on Jack Lanett the meteorite hunter.

Will Charlie get her baby and maybe the sexy meteorite hunter too? You will see as soon as you read the book! :-) Nancy Herkness has written another winner! Sexual tension right from the jump and an unforgettable story! Get this one you will devour every page of it!
