Summary Excerpt Comments

She’ll do anything to get her way. Tall, elegant and beautiful, Emma Thorpe has wanted a baby for years. The yearning for a child occupies all her thoughts, her time, her effort, and any money she and her husband can scrape up for medical intervention. After trying and failing to conceive, the solution that finally comes to her is to leave her husband and hope to find a man—any man—capable of fulfilling her deepest desire. 

 
Big, handsome Clay Thorpe isn’t the kind of man to let his wife just wander away. It takes a few months of Emma’s absence from his bed to devise a plan, but he’s determined. Eventually, Clay lures Emma home with a convoluted strategy only he could concoct, involving an antique diamond ring, sex three times a day, and...a turkey baster?
 
 
Reviews For CLAY'S QUEST by Christi Williams
 
This sweet story is a quick read that explores the heartbreak of infertility and its effect on a relationship. Clay’s ingenious solution is both self-serving and practical and provides delightfully spicy interludes. I wasn’t thrilled about the relationship since I thought that Emma needs to be more of a contributing partner even though I can sympathize with her obsession and I was skeptical that Clay would have allowed the separation to go on quite so long, given his personality. I had a little trouble warming to the characters and would like a little more depth to them but I enjoyed the various vignettes as they work their way through some of their troubles. 
 
“ Clay’s Quest” by Christi Williams is a contemporary romance novella that features Clay Thorpe, a law enforcement officer who has finally had enough of his wife’s absence. Emma Thorpe is miserable being separated from her lusty husband, even though it was her idea. Her quest for pregnancy seems to have destroyed their relationship so she doesn’t know what to think when Clay comes to her shop to purchase a gift for a ‘special woman’ but she can’t resist his demand that she return home. Now, if only he can convince her to cooperate with his regimen, maybe they can both get what they want.
