Jackson Pierce didn’t make his fortune entertaining every half-cocked idea, especially one involving diaper changes. Not even the cute brunette who links him to the baby in her arms can crack his icy heart.
A baby on the doorstep is the least of Hannah Woods’s problems—she has to find the baby’s uncle, or the child will end up in foster care. She sleuths her way to the reclusive CEO’s doorstep only to find six feet of holiday sexy—and a door slammed in her face. But when Jackson comes around and urges they marry for little Emily’s sake, Hannah finds herself falling for the jaded billionaire and wishing for a holiday miracle of their own…
I think the highlight of this book is definitely the characters, particularly Hannah. She is that person that every needy child needs to have in their lives. She's the person that never gives up - on them, on their future, on finding them a place where they can belong. Unfortunately, this attitude sometimes gets her in trouble as she tends to bend the rules a little to make things happen.
This attitude is what leads her to Jackson Piece though - and at first he finds it a major turn off. She's pushy and thinks she knows whats best for him. Eventually he realizes that there is so much more to her, and realizes that she is right - he needs his new baby neice as much as she needs him.
As amazing as the message in this story was, I still had a hard time connecting. The characters and the story just didn't call to me like the other Victoria James novella did. There are still some amazing scenes and very wonderful dialog though - I think most readers would love this sweet story of hope.
