Dr. Lincoln Montgomery is a man who has lost everything but longs to find a connection to someone who he can share his life with, but he fears he will never find the love again that he lost.

The hero of my recently completed novel, The Infertile Heart, has finally found the woman who can complete him, but will their past prevent them from having a future.  Set in Atlanta, GA, this character driven story is a 112,257-word contemporary romance.  Adventuresome and sensual, the book weaves a story of love and loss, lies and truth, and the story of two people learning to love again even though the trials and tribulations they face will stack the cards against them.

An overachiever, Dr. Lincoln Montgomery is a Noble Prize winning billionaire who has spent his life giving others what he could not give to others.  Losing his brother to cystic fibrosis he was driven to find a cure for the gene mutation that took his life.  Even given his success, he could not prevent the death of his wife and unborn child to a drunk driver and spent the last three years mourning their passing and trying to find a way back.  A chance meeting plunges Lincoln back into the dating pool with the one woman he thinks could fertilize his infertile heart.

Dr. Nicole Harris is a physical therapist who has struggled with the decisions she made as a teenager.  Drugged and raped by her date at 14, Nicole ended up pregnant and gave her child up for adoption in order to ensure that she would have a good life.  Finding the perfect family that would keep Nicole abreast of Aubrey’s developments was fear number one priority.  Having given up on love and finding someone who would appreciate her for the woman that she was, Nicole had grown to be.  Feeding her love of golf and football, Nicole meets Dr. Lincoln Montgomery.  Could Lincoln be the one to fertilize her long dormant infertile heart.

My Review:

I haven’t read any books by this author before but when I read the synopsis for this book I knew it would tug at my heart strings and have my emotions all over the place.  The author immediately had me crying, just from the prologue; Lincoln had a rough go of it when he lost his wife – and so soon after finding out that she was pregnant?  Cue the waterworks! And Nicole’s background? Well let’s just say it is easy to understand why each of them have past haunts & traumas – so much pain by each of them.  I laughed, I cried (I already said that I know), I got frustrated – I felt like I was on a roller coaster & I loved it!  

The way the author wrote the characters was so great; he gives the readers a great background for each. So much so that I felt like I was friends with them, and I was reading as if I was invested in their lives – wanting them to get their happily ever after. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but I will say I’ve never been a huge fan of reading about sports, nor have I ever set out looking for medical romances. However, this book was a great read & the author had me tying to finish this book in one sitting. I cannot wait to see what else he writes!
