Dear Reader,

My first book for Silhouette was released in August of 1991. Seeing
Patchwork Family
on the shelves was one of the biggest thrills of my life. This month, I'm celebrating another thrill…the publication of my fiftieth
and
fifty-first book in the same month.

What if I'm Pregnant…?
and
If the Stick Turns Pink…
are stories about…you guessed it—the possibility of pregnancy for two very special couples. I hope these books represent what you've come to expect from my writing…heartwarming stories about good people finding love.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank my readers. Without you I would have no voice, and I hope that you will continue to enjoy the stories I tell. I'd also like to take a moment to thank Silhouette and the many wonderful editors I've worked with over the years. Thank you for allowing me the honor of writing for you. It has truly been a pleasure.

Best,

Prologue

C
olette Carson stood in her bathroom and pulled the pregnancy test out of the plastic shopping bag. Her fingers trembled as she opened the box and pulled out the test instrument and the directions.

She read the directions quickly, then looked at her reflection in the mirror over the sink. Her eyes were slightly swollen from her morning of tears, and her pale face radiated the torment of heartbreak that ached inside her.

She couldn't think about that, she thought as she scanned the directions to the test one last time. She absolutely, positively couldn't think about
him.

Four weeks ago the only wish in her life had been to be pregnant, and she'd opted to become a single parent. She'd found a clinic that offered artificial insemination and had gone through the procedure.

Four weeks ago, all she'd wanted was to be pregnant, but that had been before she'd met
him,
before she'd fallen in love with
him
and had her heart broken into a million little pieces.

She stared down at the directions one last time. She'd bought the one she'd thought would be easiest to read. Within three minutes either a plus or minus sign would appear in the test window. Plus meant pregnant. Minus meant not pregnant.

Simple. Easy. Except that since she had been artificially inseminated her life had suddenly become complicated and she wasn't sure now if she wanted to be pregnant.

Deciding she could put it off no longer, she took the test, then set it on the counter and prepared to wait the three minutes.

“Oh, my,” she muttered to herself. “What if I'm pregnant?”
