It made perfect sense. Or so Dr. Talbot Robichaux told Dr. Stephanie Sheldon. Since both had busy hospital practices, their baby would be much better off - and their own lives easier - if they shared parental duties.
Stephanie couldn't fault Tal's logic, but his thirteen year old daughter could. Not only was her father marrying some woman she'd never met, but now she was going to have to share his attention with a baby!
Stephanie sympathized with the girl, who had no way of knowing the marriage was only temporary. Or was it? Living with Tal, sharing his life and catching the special glances he gave her, Stephanie couldn't help wishing that "temporary" would become "permanent!"
