Bailey Summers is very good at taking care of herself. So good, in fact, that she shuts others out with very little effort.

But when her brother and his partner want a child, she pushes out of her comfort zone and offers to be their surrogate. It’s just nine months out of her life, right?


Because of course when she’s struggling with morning sickness, she encounters the hottest man she’s ever met. To make matters worse, he’s the new bartender at her popular bar.

Rick Cassidy comes with his own complications. He’s a middle school teacher taking a summer job as a bartender to help out his brother’s family. His brother is in a rehab hospital after colliding with a drunk driver, and Rick is trying to help them make ends meet. He’s just out of a relationship himself, with a woman who couldn’t handle him spending so much time caring for his brother. So what’s he doing eyeballing his boss, the boss of a job he needs? 

But late nights, close quarters and second-trimester hormones overrule better judgement, and complications intertwine. This is definitely not what they were expecting.


When they reached the doctor's office, Bailey had to pry her fingers off the "oh shit" handle above her head.
Rick frowned at her. "What's wrong?"
"What's wrong?" Her voice cracked. "You drive like a lunatic!"
"You said you were in a hurry."
"I don't see how that was any better for me than driving my tempermental car, seriously." Also, she'd never ridden in a vehicle that was so exposed. Every time a car had passed by, inches from her leg, with no door in between, she thought she was going to lose her lunch, which miraculously was staying down these days. She shuddered.
"Well, you're here, aren't you?"
She got out of the vehicle on shaky legs and prayed Mitch would be able to take her back to the bar. "Thanks for the ride. You don't need to go in."
He looked surprised at that, and glanced from her to the building. "I'll just wait with you until Mitch and Dean get here."
A small punch of relief rolled through her. She hated going to the doctor, sitting in the waiting room with those endless infomercials on the television with the perpetually chipper hosts talking about terrifying things, waiting because so many patients were booked at the same time. And she was so different from them—not usually something she had trouble with, but these days, she felt particularly sensitive to the idea. She nodded and let him hold the building door for her.
She checked in at the window while he scouted seats, finally asking a roundly pregnant woman if she could scoot over a chair so they could sit together. Bailey watched as the woman blushed, smiled, and did as he asked. Rick rewarded her with that damned sexy smile and Bailey felt the kick of it in her own gut. As she sat beside him, she was aware of the other patients—many with kids already, fidgeting and making her want to fidget as well. The women looked at Rick, the only man here, through their lashes, out of the corners of their eyes, and cast Bailey assessing looks. For just a fraction of a moment, she let herself wonder what it would be like to come in here pregnant with her own child, with her man beside her, to feel the same excitement and anticipation these women were feeling.
But that wasn't the life she had planned out for herself. She was a successful businesswoman, content with her life. Families were complicated, and her life was simple. She liked it that way.

A refreshingly frank and funny take on motherhood that is not designed to make you feel guilty
I have 10 worries, and the first nine are all variations on the theme of labor and "Is there really a baby in there, or just some lizards?"

Over the course of her first two pregnancies, Zoe Williams shared her forthright insights into impending and new motherhood in her regular Guardian "Anti-natal" column, a straight-talking corrective to the sea of advice that engulfs pregnant women and new moms. Whether bemoaning the fact that simply being pregnant seemed to give overbearing people the urge to comment on everything she ate, drank, or wore (I'm drinking coffee and suddenly that makes me an evil mom-to-be. What is wrong with these people?) or inventing elaborate lies to explain why she was late to take her first born for his injections (Perhaps I moved to Italy, but the economic downturn destroyed my prospects and I had to move back.) her commentary is honest, feisty, and—in some cases—downright hilarious. This antidote to standard parenting books offers an idiosyncratic, individual take on becoming a mom—a pregnancy companion with attitude.

--Edna St. Vincent Millay

Beth is a stay at home mother to be who suspects her husband might be cheating on her. When a friend from her past shows up out of the blue they set out to uncover her husband’s wayward love affairs. Things get interesting when they discover her husband had infact been cheating. As emotions and magical transformations fly, their plans for revenge get out of hand and nobody knows what to expect next. Told from the point of view of Beth, this erotic tale sets out to capture the female perspective of magical gender transformations. This 10,000 word short story contains scenes of gender transformations, forced magical female and male rapid pregnancy, and sexual activities involving mild bondage and a pregnant man. This work of erotic fiction is intended for adults who are interested in gender transformation erotic stories with a pregnancy twist. Excerpt His gut swelled as more and more fatty tissue was drawn to his core. Soon the lower buttons on his shirt began to pucker as the gathering excess mass pressed away from his body. Raven watched in horror as her fit and trim seasoned bachelor became a middle aged overweight slug, or so she thought. The bulge on his body grew even lager as his skin was stretched thin around his middle. One by one the buttons on my husband’s shirt failed, exploding away from his torso at extreme velocity. His white undershirt rode up away from his waistline revealing the naked underside of his growing midsection as red stretch marks crawled across his belly. Frightened by the sudden inflation of her lover, Raven let out a scream as she watched my husband’s belly button invert itself beneath his shirt. The little bulb now protruded from his ever expanding midsection like the navel of a woman who was six months pregnant. The weight of his girth began to settle low onto his hips, placing undue pressure on his bladder. Though settling into his loins the mass also continued to displace his internal organs toward his rib cage. Soon the presence in his belly dominated his physical consciousness as it displaced his torso’s internal anatomy. Not surprising to me, my self-centered husband was unaware of anything else occurring around him. The huge bulge settled low on his torso causing him to arch his back to compensate for the increased and shifting wright. He placed his hands on his lower back to help support his burgeoning stomach that had finally stopped its rapid expansion
