What do you do when the person you can’t get out of your head is the son of the man who jilted you 30 years ago? Proceed with caution!
When Dr. Joseph Nielson – aka Doc – walked into his exam room, the last thing he expected to find was the spitting image of the fiance who had hurt him so badly that he’d spent the rest of his adult life as a bitter bachelor.
Marion Harris is a 29-year-old virgin…who happens to be nine months pregnant, thanks to having agreed to be a surrogate for his best friend. After an unlucky year of sorrow, he’s now alone with a child to raise and nowhere else to go but his father’s hometown of MacIntosh Meadows.
After a not-so-great first impression, the two men keep finding themselves pushed together during the holiday season they both hate by a mischievous family who loves them – the MacIntosh clan. Despite every reason they shouldn’t, neither one can find a good enough reason to fight the matchmaking…or the natural attraction they both feel.
This is the fourth book in this heart-warming series and contains a virgin giving birth in a barn, three wise guys in pajamas, and enough holiday feels to keep you smiling into the new year. Pretty much everything you’d expect from a Susi Hawke book.
A pregnant virgin is stranded near Christmas and in need of shelter. Stop me if you’ve heard that one before. Except this isn’t Mary, this is Marion. And his companion isn’t the Joseph from the Bible, but Dr. Joseph Nielson, obstetrician extraordinaire. He’s the only doctor working near Christmas and as Marion finds himself stuck and in need of help, Joseph is expected to step in and help. Only problem? Marion reminds Joseph of a painful part of his past. So can he work through the existential crap and help the young expectant father? Time will tell.
I have listened to a bunch of Susi Hawke audios recently and this one was good, although not my favorite. A little cheesy on occasion, but sweet. Marion has come to town to claim his inheritance, not realizing how complicated that will prove to be. He’s also pregnant and about to give birth so, yeah, the kindness of strangers is appreciated – especially the two grandmothers who take him under their wings. Of course there’s the birth in the barn, and the three wise guys in pajamas (and yes, that was definitely funny). There are plenty of laughs and a few sentimental moments as well.
Drew Bacca narrated the story and he did a good job. His narrations and solid and consistent which is important. Overall it was good and I’m glad I listened.

I’m a total fan of M/PREG Paranormal Romances, first and foremost as a reader. I’m excited to share my own omegaverse(s) with you. What’s not to love about adorable Omegas and the Alpha men who love them? If I’m not writing about men sporting baby bumps, I’m definitely reading about them!
I’m a native of Las Vegas, NV, so I’m pre-wired to love everything weird ~ although I don’t find any kind of love to be weird. I’m a cis woman who’s been happily married to the same lovable lug for 18 years. We have a 16yr old son, well, at least I think we do? Either that, or we have a ghost that eats all our food and uses up all wifi playing xbox while screaming into a headset.
As a new author, it’s been amazing to find the amount of support that I’ve been given from readers and my fellow authors. Feel free to message me, I love to chat with fellow readers. Am I a reader? Heck yeah! In fact, I’m never certain that I can completely trust an author who isn’t a fellow bibliophile.
