Since I Fell For You (Eighty-Eight, Mississippi Book 3) by Bettye Griffin
In the tradition of her popular 2012 novel Isn’t She Lovely?, Bettye Griffin presents a new touching romance between two unlikely people who learn they’re more alike than different…
Courtney Mathis became the talk of her hometown of Eighty-Eight, Mississippi when she served as a surrogate and carried a baby for a paying client. The financial arrangements allowed her to stay at home and care for her dying grandmother, whose only request had been to pass away at home in her own bed. Courtney gave birth to twins and goes on with her life after her grandmother’s death…until the day she learns that Jermaine Thomas, the entertainment mogul whose children she carried, has suddenly passed away. Jermaine never married, leaving their twins, now eight years old, orphaned. Courtney moves to claim them.
Jordan Thomas feels overwhelmed by the shock of his younger brother’s sudden death and the responsibilities of raising his orphaned niece and nephew and running an entertainment empire, plus tussling with Jermaine’s girlfriend, a schemer who is angling for a share of his vast estate. When Jordan learns that the biological mother of his niece and nephew is requesting custody, he dismisses her as just another gold digger anxious to get her hands on his late brother’s millions.
Courtney and Jordan come to an uneasy truce, agreeing she will be presented to the twins as their new nurse until they’re ready to know the truth. In spite of butting heads with Courtney from the start, Jordan notices her tender and loving attitude toward the twins. Could it be her motives are pure?

A project of her past, and of her heart, Iesha hopes to get the funding the center needs to stay in business from book publisher, Walker Black. But just like the others, Walker brushes her off and sends her on her way. Tired of her girls not getting what they need, Iesha is finally fed up and let’s Walker know exactly how she feels about him and his pathetic offer.
It isn’t until Walker is in a situation of his own, one where Iesha’s desperation might be exactly what Walker needs, Walker realizes the impression has Iesha made upon him. However, what Walker needs may not be what Iesha wants when Walker proposes renting out her womb so he can have a child to fulfill a requirement in the family’s company charter.
Despite her attraction to the book publisher, and how enjoyable making a baby with him could be, of course Iesha thinks the proposition is immoral, irresponsible, and ridiculous.
But what other, better, options does she have? What better other, options does Walker have? Or will all options be thrown out the window when one party decides no problems they are having mean more than the fact they’ve fallen in love?
