Harlequin American Romance #1515,
Series: Safe Harbor Medical
When fertility counselor Melissa Everhart decided to have a baby on her own, she didn't anticipate triplets…or her ex-husband's return to Safe Harbor. Three years ago, Edmond's reluctance to have children tore them apart. But now that he's been made guardian of his niece, Melissa witnesses how tenderly he cares for the little girl.
Though Edmond doesn't believe he's father material, his sudden custody of Dawn leaves him little choice. He turns to Melissa, the warmest, kindest person he knows, for help. They begin to rediscover the love they once shared, but the betrayals of the past trouble them both. Can they find the forgiveness they both need to come together as a family?
One thing I like about each of these Safe Harbor Medical books is that every one of them can stand and be read on their own but together they make an even better story.
In this one, The Surprise Triplets the 14th book for Safe Harbor Medical series, Jacqueline Diamond has done her research for Melissa and Edmond's situations. This series has taught me a bit about embryo transfers and multiple pregnancies, I know these are romance books but sometimes we readers do learn something, and in this one I was taught more when I read about Edmond's neice. This whole story is just another reason to read a Jacueline Diamond novel, because they are well worth the read.

“We clean our own house, so I’m not sure. Just ask at work. You’ll be inundated with suggestions.” She was grinning widely.
“What’s so funny?”
“You’re usually on top of every situation.” She slipped her pad into a pocket. “It’s refreshing to see you out of your element.”
“Refreshing?” That wasn’t the word Edmond would have chosen. “Awkward, maybe. Embarrassing.”
“No, it’s cute.” She’d never called him that before. “Human.”
“As opposed to my usual robotic self?” he asked.
“In a sense,” she teased. “It’s fun to watch the ice melt.”
He traced her temple with his thumb. “Only with you.” Her radiance drew him in, drew him close. He tilted his head, longing for her, but holding back.
And then, as if it were the most natural thing in the world, she looped her arms around his shoulders and kissed him....
