Their Royal Baby Gift (Christmas at the Harrington Park Hotel, #2) By Kandy Shepherd

    Sweet romance between sensible characters that seem to care about each other. Would have been a 4 star read if Sally, the heroine, hadn't just quit her company in an off-hand sentence at the end of the story. She was shown to be ambitious and to really love her job and the company she built. Dismissing it like that, to me, felt like undermining her character, and implies that women can't be both a mother and a business-woman. Her love interest, Edward, who owns a telecom company, doesn't seem to give up his business either by the end of the story.

    Fun story despite the yucky double standard in the epilogue.

    Content warnings: death of parent, forced marriage, abusive step-parent, mention of suspected pedophilia, surprise pregnancy (appreciated), mention of throwing up because of pregnancy-related nausea. Explicit sex scene. Their Royal Baby Gift (Christmas at the Harrington Park Hotel, #2) Their Royal Baby Gift is enchanting, charming, and utterly romantic. My heart ached for Sally and Edward as they faced an impossible situation set amidst the lush tropical paradise of Singapore an Edward's own island country.

    I always enjoy books set in places that I'm familiar with since it gives me a sense of closeness. Ms Shepherd has done a fantastic job with getting the setting right from the richness and luxury of the hotel where Sally and Edward met to the culture and mannerisms of the Singaporeans who graced the pages of the book, and the authenticity of Edward's ancestry and heritage. I felt like I could imagine what Tianlipin was like as a country.

    I fell in love with Edward as soon as he stepped on the page and rescued Sally. And Sally is right. He's hot, handsome, and honourable. And he's caught in a very difficult situation where he has to put duty above his personal desires. Everything about Edward is wonderful. From his dashing rescue of Sally to his care for her, and how tender and protective he was. I love that he fought for Sally and didn't simply accept his fate.

    Sally is lovely but also headstrong, independent, and determined. She's thrown for a loop with her emerging feelings for Edward when she's held herself closed off for many years after a tragedy in her life which led to pain and heartache. She's protected herself and her heart to prevent ever getting hurt again but it's also kept her from meaningful connections in her life. I felt bad for her when she struggled with her role in Edward's life and his in hers. It certainly seemed awful when she had to be kept hidden like a shameful secret. I love that she expressed herself and Edward listened to her concerns. I love that they communicated as adults and didn't let misunderstandings get in their way. They had enough hurdles to overcome without unnecessary miscommunication.

    It's been a while since I've read a Harlequin Romance and this reminded me how much I love them and how I should read more of them. They are so heartwarming. They fill my heart and soul with joy, comfort, and warmth. Not to mention how wonderfully romantic they are. I need to make it a point to read more of them.

    Their Royal Baby Gift (Christmas at the Harrington Park Hotel, #2)

    An unexpected meeting between two strangers sparks an undeniable electric connection in author Kandy Shepherd's Their Royal Baby Gift (Christmas at the Harrington Park Hotel #2). After her family wins a battle to regain ownership of London's renowned Harrington Park hotel, designer Sally Harrington travels to Singapore for a much-needed break and to also gather inspiration or adding new life to the hotel. One idea slated for the Harrington Park makeover was the addition of a roof-top garden. While lost in photographing a hotel with just such a garden, Sally trips and falls into the hotel pool. Never a very good swimmer. Sally is rescued from her splashing and struggles by a most handsome and charming gentleman. For reasons of his own, Edward Chen had tried to keep a low profile during his stay in Singapore, but he couldn't ignore a damsel in distress. Sally, who had also tried to remain incognito while doing her research, quickly agrees to Edward's suggestion that they retreat to his hotel suite to recover from their watery adventure. A companionable evening of food and conversation soon becomes much more--a night of soaring passion--a night that could only happen once, with no commitment. After leaving without saying goodbye, five weeks later Sally is back in Singapore. Shocked to find out that she is pregnant, she is further jolted to discover that Edward is not just a telecommunications mogul, he is Prince Edward of Tianlipin! Sally attends a charity event where she knows Edward will make an appearance, and he is stunned to see his beautiful mermaid--Sally, the woman he can't forget. A second meeting the two confirms the chemistry between them, and Sally reveals her pregnancy to Edward. There are great obstacles to overcome for a chance for a happy family and a future together. Sally has promised to help her family save their hotel and their heritage. Edward is honor-bound to his family and his country--and his prearranged engagement to a royally-suitable young woman he's only met twice is soon to be announced. There are cultural and home base issues to consider as well--and scandal is to be avoided if at all possible. With the holidays approaching, emotions and hopes run high--will there be a Christmas miracle for Sally and Edward? Author Kandy Shepherd has written another wonderful contemporary love story that will touch the heart of readers, and they will also enjoy the other two books in the series: Christmas Reunion in Paris by Liz Fielding, and Stolen Kiss with Her Billionaire Boss by Susan Meier.

The characters were delightful, their love story was decadently forbidden yet super sweet, and their happily ever after was divine! I can't wait for Hugo's story to finish off the series.

    Sally is a sweet character. She never expects a trip to Singapore to research gardens for the Harrington to bring the sexiest man she's ever seen to literally sweep her off her feet.
