Doctor Daddy or Mr Right?
Isabelle Martens, in her thirties and still intentionally single, is desperate to be a mother to create a much-needed family for herself. She has just made the life-altering decision to go it alone and undergo IVF. But her best friend, Pippa, doesn't agree - she thinks Isy should wait for her "Mr Right".
Enter Pippa's brother - widower Carmello Medini, a man who has no intentions of getting married again, not after the tragedy that took his wife five years ago. When Cam accidentally finds out about Isy's decision, he offers to be the father. It seems like the perfect solution for both of them, despite knowing his traditional Italian family may not approve, given the way Pippa had reacted when she'd found Carmello and Isy sharing their one and only kiss sixteen years ago.
Can they make a relationship work, or will it destroy Isy's relationship with the only family she had left - Carmello's family?
This story is one very close to my heart. It has been in the works for a few years, and made it to the top 25 of the 2014 SYTYCW competition, which I'm super proud of. There has been some major editing and big changes since then, and am pleased with this new version of the story. Hope you enjoy it and that it gives you a bit of an insight to lengths some people go to to have a baby.
