A New York City blackout complicates Cat's baby-making date in this feel-good romantic comedy!
"Please let me get pregnant!" Cat Seabright's biological clock is hollering at her to get on with it already. She has a profound desire for a baby, and a limited window of opportunity in which to make one. What she doesn't have is a significant other. That's where her pal's cousin comes in. Agreeable guy that he is, he promises to fly to New York from Alaska, do the deed, then promptly fly back out of her life.
All goes according to plan... except for the part about the agreeable guy from Alaska. Oh, there's a man in her bed, all right, a sexy, virile man who's more than up to the task. The thing is, a full-fledged New York City blackout has plunged their baby-making date into darkness, obscuring her view of the energetic stud. The next day Cat finds out Mr. Alaska never made it to New York!
So who the heck did she have sex with?
When she discovers the man's identity, and that she has to work closely with this particular bad boy for the next several weeks, all she can think is, "Please let me not be pregnant!"

About the Author
Pamela Burford comes from a funny family. You may take that any way you want. She was raised in a household that valued laughter above all, so of course the first thing she looked for in a husband was a sense of humor. Is it any wonder their grown kids are into stand-up comedy and improv?
It should come as no surprise that everything Pamela writes is infused with her own quirky brand of humor, from her feel-good contemporary romance and romantic suspense novels to her popular Jane Delaney mystery series, featuring snarky “Death Diva” Jane, her canine sidekick Sexy Beast, and a fun love-triangle subplot. Pamela's own beloved poodle, Murray, wants you to know that any similarities between himself and neurotic, high-strung Sexy Beast are purely coincidental.
