Three years ago, Kara Bianchi’s husband died in the line of duty. The fact that they never started a family is the one thing that she can’t lay to rest. Knowing that she could never love again, Kara decides to conceive a child in a more…non-traditional way. All she needs now is the ideal DNA, and she’s found it in Derek Martinez. Physically he’s a perfect specimen, with dark features so much like her late husband’s. Then Derek suggests changes to the insemination contract, and he threatens to disrupt not only her plan, but Kara’s entire highly structured and ultra-organized world. She would be required to let down her guard and join the living, no matter how vulnerable that would make her. She can do it, she’s a strong woman. It shouldn’t be that hard to resist Derek’s charms. She’d just have to think with her head, and not her heart. When ghosts of Kara’s past surface, Kara isn’t sure that she can trust her heart anyway.
