Yuletide Baby Surprise is a wonderfully written holiday romance. Mari was a nerdy doctor who is constantly at horns with Rowan at professional level. Rowan was a doctor with a generous heart with a genuine nature to help others through his charities. He has a unfortunate past, which makes him insecure in his relationship with Mari. Their professional rivalry helped to make their personal lives more spicier and I just loved how the baby helped them to get closer.
My only issue with this story is that I found the pace of the story was too fast and the romance was going too fast for me at times.
Overall Yuletide Baby Surprise by Catherine Mann is a wonderfully written fast paced holiday romance.If you are a fan of the author’s previous works and like holiday themed romances,then this is the book for you.
