He was just supposed to be a sperm donor…
What if the father of her child
is the man she’s searched for her whole life?
No Mr. Right? No problem! Attorney Cassie Thompson wants a family of her own—and she doesn’t need a man to get one. But after Cassie discovers that her baby’s health is at risk, she reluctantly contacts the sperm donor—only to find Woodrow Alexander is easily the kindest, most selfless man she’s ever met. He’s just a biological component, she keeps telling herself. He’s not her child’s real father or the husband of her dreams…right?
Excerpt from Her Motherhood Wish
“Mr. Alexander? This is Christine Elliott, managing director of the Parent Portal…”
The woman didn’t bother with hello. Had apparently recognized him on her caller ID. He’d had no idea the number she’d left had been to her private phone. He’d been expecting to speak with a receptionist.
“Thank you for calling back so expediently,” she said. “I’ll be as brief as possible.”
She’d said it was important. Figured they were going to honor his brother posthumously for all of the volunteer hours he’d put in, beyond residency requirements, when the clinic had just been getting up and running. He’d let Elaina know and have her call the clinic. It was her the clinic would need to speak with.
The fourth truck pulled in. Two more and he’d be set for the day. He still hadn’t said a word. The woman just continued talking.
“I have a request for contact, and the matter is urgent…”
He’d been watching a couple of workers get out of their trucks…one punched the other on the shoulder and laughed. Brothers. Wood’s gut lurched.
“A request for contact?” He wasn’t sure he’d heard her right.
“From your sperm recipient…”
Turning away so that the parking lot was no longer in view, he shook his head. “What now?”
“Your sperm donation was used four months ago, Mr. Alexander, and fertilization was successful. The recipient is currently four months pregnant and needs to speak with you.”
His sperm. It took a few seconds for him to even figure out what she was talking about. To remember years back—when his brother had first started at the clinic. They’d needed sperm donors, and Peter had hit Wood up. Always willing to help his younger brother, to support him, Wood had been fine with the donation—not so much with the pounds of paperwork he’d had to fill out. Most particularly when it came to education and occupation.
“I quit high school when my mom died so that I could go to work and support my brother,” he said now, as much to himself as to the managing whatever she was. “No one was ever going to choose me as her donor.”
