Spencer Grayson’s structured world is collapsing. The surrogate he hired to carry his and his late wife’s child has gone missing and the wrong woman is inseminated. There weren’t supposed to be loose ends in this transaction, but it’s turning into a zero-sum game he can’t afford to lose.
Artist Winter Alexander has painted a perfect picture for her life. But when a routine procedure results in an accidental pregnancy, the realistic portrait she painted turns surreal. It’s an error she can’t brush away with a tube of titanium-white, no matter how much she might want to. Especially not when the Grayson is determined she become his substitute surrogate.
To Grayson, Winter is an abstract piece, a collection of soulful shapes and swirls he’s hopelessly mesmerized by. One he wouldn’t have envisioned in his life before. Winter finds Grayson controlling at first, but beneath those cold eyes lies a longing, a torch of desire and vulnerability that makes her agree to things she’d never considered.
They embark on a 40-week journey in the name of a child, navigating through a sea of self-doubt, conflicting emotions and rising feelings. When these nine months are over, will Grayson be able to convince Winter to make him and the baby part of her picture-perfect landscape? What happens next is something neither of them sees coming.
Tanya Rae’s rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Winter of My Love is the 2nd book in A Love for All Seasons. This is my first book that I have read by this author. I can say that you can read this book as a standalone.
I thought that this was an interesting idea for a book. Winter went in for a procedure and was inseminated with Grayson’s sperm. Was this an accident? How could something like that happen? Grayson finds out that his sperm was inseminated into the wrong woman. He also thought that his dead wife’s eggs were used. He wants the baby and wants Winter to his surrogate for his baby. She says she doesn’t want to be a mother, ever.
Of course, you will have to read the story to find out what happens. I loved reading this mystery about the missing eggs and his sperm. Hopefully this never happens in real life but, it could happen, then what?
I also really enjoyed reading about some of the other characters in this book. I am really hoping that Elias will get his own book.
This story covers a very serious condition, postpartum depression. It is a very real thing that does & can happen to any woman after having a baby. There is a discussion with important phone numbers at the end of this book.
I give The Winter of My Love 5 stars. A very interesting concept for a book. I loved it!
