Brian Cato, New York Times best-selling author of horror and suspense novels, would like a son – without the hassles of a wife. Women, even would-be surrogate mothers have brought nothing but trouble to his successful, but lonely career.
Natalie Stover, newly published romance novelist, dreams of writing the New York Times best seller. She has tried marriage, but prefers her fictional heroes to the real ones. Until she meets Brian for a passionate weekend at a writers’ conference and becomes pregnant with his child.
Is there a more perfect place for two writers to meet but at the Dark and Stormy Writers’ Conference? Brian is the keynote speaker and Natalie an attendee. Amidst the gold and glitter of the hotel and the non-stop pace of the workshops, Natalie and Brian experience a meeting of the minds, realization of a promising writing project, and ecstasy of a new-found love. Instantly attracted to one another, they embark on a whirlwind affair that leaves Natalie pregnant.
Brian also has a secret. He is being stalked by Sara, a mentally unstable fan. For two years, she has been harassing him, sending him love letters, tapping his telephone, crashing his parties, even attempting to publicize a fictitious engagement. Despite his success, Sara’s intrusions have made Brian a lonely recluse. Until he meets Natalie.
Can these two creative minds overcome an evil one that plots to keep them apart? Can they nurture a love that could mean a future of happiness for both?
