Soleil and West have very little in common. She is a throw back to the flower child era, as in the save-the-earth, never wants to get married, and anti-military kind of way. He is a career military man who would love to settle down and have a family some day. But that doesn’t stop them from enjoying each other for a few carefree weeks. The last thing that either of them planned is a surprise pregnancy. To make matters even worse, Soleil has put off telling West about his pending fatherhood. Now she has little choice but to let him in on her little secret. He is standing in the middle of the road, right in front of her.
Author Jamie Sobrato has done a superb job penning BABY UNDER THE MISTLETOE. She gives the reader a wonderful second love story that brews between West’s mother and a man she meets online. I thought this was a fascinating and brilliant side story that make both characters of the mother and West appear more believable and real.
BABY UNDER THE MISTLETOE is a delightful read that I had a hard time putting down. The chemistry between our leading characters was intense and the storyline of how they would work out their differences was gripping. I thought the complete difference between beliefs and lifestyle was a captivating and different twist of the unplanned pregnancy plot that has been used time and time again. This is another winner for Harlequin and for Ms Sobrato. I hope to read more from this author in the future.
