Review: A Baby for Christmas by Susan R. Hughes

Yesterday was rainy and unseasonably cool, considering we've had triple digit temperatures for much of the summer. The cooler day was perfect for reading a Christmas romance. I chose A Baby for Christmas by Susan R. Hughes. This sweet romance was my first by Ms. Hughes, and it did not disappoint.

Blurb It

Paige thought she had her Prince Charming and a happily ever after, but her Prince just wouldn't commit. As time passed, she began to realize that he probably wasn't the man for her. She could see the handwriting on the wall and knew she had to make a change in her life. She took action and weeks later suddenly finds herself single, homeless, and pregnant.

Handsome, kind Ryan, a guy who embodies the best traits of a hero, rescues Paige, opens his home to her -- and finds himself falling head over heels for her. The last thing he wants is to get involved when his plan call for life in another city.

The last thing Paige needs is another man in her life when she can’t seem to untangle herself from the ex-Prince Charming. Yet, Ryan's feelings are definitely reciprocated.

What will it take for Paige to seize control of her own destiny? With a baby on the way, will it take a Christmas miracle to make Paige and Ryan realize that they belong together?

My Take

Paige's insecurities and lack of confidence, stemming from a childhood of benign neglect, have left her with a hunger for stability and a determination to do better by her child and to make sure her child knows it's loved.

Ryan is the perfect hero, and just what Paige needs to be strong enough to confront her shortcomings and be the woman she sees reflected in his eyes.

Both must overcome their respective emotional baggage and learn to trust themselves -- before they can trust each other with the sweet love that grows between them.

Takeaway Truth

If you like sweet romance with appealing characters who have made mistakes and have learned from those mistakes -- with characters who conquer their doubts and move into the future together -- this heartwarming romance is for you.
