I believe in love. Or I did until my husband died.
Now, I believe in surviving this world without him.
I have a plan mapped out for the rest of my life, and it doesn’t involve a man. I’ve been down that road, and I’m not willing to risk my heart again.
Not even for the devastatingly handsome and charming Dr. Keegan Russo, who also happens to be one hell of a kisser.
My head has plans, but what happens when my heart can’t say no?
Hot as hell sex with no strings attached. That’s my credo.
It works, too, until she walks into my office.
Calliope. A young widow with totally different priorities than me.
There’s no future for us, but I can’t stay away, either.
For the first time, I want something complicated and messy, and I want it with her.
But that means breaking the promise I made her on the day we met.
Baby Maker is a love after loss/forbidden romance inspired by British Bedmate.
M.L. Broome is a bohemian spirit with a New York edge. She writes high-octane contemporary romance with a touch of angst and plenty of steamy goodness. Her characters are bitingly real, earning their happily-ever-after only after some emotional ass-kicking and personal growth.
When M.L. isn’t writing or holding one-sided arguments with her characters (spoiler alert—they always win), she loves losing herself in nature on her North Carolina farm, one of her rescue buddies by her side. She adores dressing up and kicking back, a glass of whiskey with an equally stunning view, and experiences that make the soul—and senses—tingle.

COCKY HERO CLUB
Almost two years after her husband Nigel passed away from pancreatic cancer Calli is still struggling with the grief and emptiness she feels. Her decision to have her husband’s child is what brings Keegan into her life, but it isn’t long before he is so much more than her doctor.
Keegan is a doctor who specialized in fertility issues who is drawn to Calli from their first meeting. Calli is so different from any other woman he has known so even though he has no intentions of getting married or having a family keeping their relationship strictly professional is a challenge he won’t be able to keep.
This is an emotional story about a man who didn’t know what he was missing until Calli came into his life and a woman who is conflicted by the feelings for Keegan as it makes her feel disloyal to her first love. This is an emotional story about love, healing and overcoming the past.
