The Couple Most Likely to (Logan's Legacy Revisited)
When Jake Logan joined the Children's Connection, the hospital was overjoyed to have one of the country's top fertility specialists on staff. But when I first laid eyes on the esteemed doctor, I was shocked. The hotshot hire was my former high school sweetheart!
There was a time I thought I'd be with Jake forever. When "Stacey and Jake" were the perfect couple. But after I got pregnant on prom night, everything changed. Now I'm a divorced mother of two--and I can't believe that Jake's back in my life. Because this doctor might be medicine that's just too bitter to swallow....

Excerpt from The Couple Most Likely to (Logan's Legacy Revisited) by Lilian Darcy
The January darkness had already begun to gather outside as Stacey Handley came into the day-care center. The misty drizzle of rain blanketing the region would have reduced visibility on I-5 almost to zero. John was a cautious driver, thank heaven, but the weather conditions on this first Friday of the new year meant he'd probably be late. That and the demands of his job with the Washington State government.

In contrast to the gloom outside, the day-care center attached to the Portland General Hospital felt bright and warm. Children's artwork hung on the walls and on colored yarn from the ceiling. Creative imagination buzzed in the home corner, the dress-up area, and the block space.
The place drew Stacey in, giving the usual lift to her spirits. She always loved dropping in here to see Max and Ella during her breaks, and picking them up at the end of the day. In her anticipation at seeing them, she forgot temporarily about the lonely weekend that lay ahead. But for now, she was happy to spend some precious minutes with the twins before John collected them.
Max saw her almost at once and catapulted into her arms. She returned his hug and inhaled the clean smell of his wheat-blond hair, noting that Ella, as usual, was too busy to have noticed her arrival. "Hi, sweetheart," she said to her little boy. "Did you have a good afternoon?"
