Forever My Love - Heather Graham Pozzessere

I haven't read any of the author's contemporaries and am just not feeling the urge to hunt down any more.

 

It's a second chance romance brought about by a friend of the H's being a dirty cop and targeting people he thought might know something.

 

Issues I had - H was an overbearing asshole, h all but fell over with her legs in the air. That pretty much sums it up.

 

They had divorced 3 years previous after a) losing a child to SIDS and b) her having a bad miscarriage. Essentially he decided he'd been too rough w/sex so stopped touching her so after a year of this, she filed for divorce.

 

They never really talked it over; just his demanding she sleep with him, her complying irritably, etc.

 

Ends with an epilogue where she's 5 months pregnant, they'd remarried, and the Dr had mailed results back of the sex of said kid. Seeing as how the book was released in 1990, and my "helpful" OB's technician had just blurted out that my firstborn was a boy while doing an ultrasound 2 years previous...
