I must admit that I’m a sucker for military romances. So when I saw this book, I was excited to read it.

 

To start off, ih ave to say that this is a novella. I always get nervous reading novellas because they can feel rushed. Helen Scott Taylor did a good job of making me care about the characters  with such a short book. I really liked Radley. We got some info about Rad’s past and it made my heart break for him. Even though we never met his ex, I hated her. I just kept hoping that he wasn’t going to go through that again. I also liked, and respected Olivia. She was a strong woman that was doing everything she could to provide for her son. And the scenes between Rad and little George were just adorable.

I found this book to be really enjoyable. It was a sweet, fluffy romance with no angst or dark hidden secrets. It was a nice change of pace compared to everything else out there.

The Army Doctor’s Wedding by Helen Scott Taylor

Army doctor, Major Cameron Knight, thrives on the danger of front-line Battlefield medicine. Throwing himself into saving the lives of injured servicemen keeps the demons from his past away. When he rescues charity worker, Alice Conway, and a tiny newborn baby, he longs for a second chance to do the right thing, even if it means marrying a woman he barely knows so they can take the orphan baby to England for surgery. The brave, beautiful young woman and the orphan baby steal his heart. He longs to make the marriage real, but being married to an army officer might do her more harm than good.

I have to start out by saying that I really disliked Cameron in the first book. He was an immature twit and I wanted to kick his butt for the way the acted toward Olivia and George. George was just a novelty to him and he was put out when Radley and Olivia fell in love. So coming into this book, I wasn’t looking forward to reading Cameron’s story.

After reading The Army Doctor’s Baby, I was glad that Cameron was stepping back and letting Rad be a father to George. Cam was a stupid immature guy that refused to step up to his responsibility. But after getting to know him in this book, I felt kind of bad for him. He realized what he missed out on and that was just sad.

In some ways, I felt like this book wasn’t as rushed as the previous one. Maybe it’s because the course of the book seemed like was months longer or maybe it was because there was more action. Either way, much to my surprise, I enjoyed this one more than the first.

This was a short and (maybe too)sweet romance about two people finding love when they least expected and creating a family where there was once almost no hope of having one. Sean lost his wife in a car accident just after their twin daughters were born. What he never told anyone was that their relationship was ending which led him to close himself off to ever trusting another woman or finding love. Kelly has been in lover with her friend for years and after watching him marry someone else, she’s decided to retire from the military and take her nursing skills overseas to help a children’s charity. A chance meeting one night brings Sean and Kelly together. Ok, maybe not so chance… She’s dressed as a sexy bunny to sing Sean Happy Birthday as arranged by mutual friends. I found this pretty funny 🙂 Turns out Sean is in need of a nanny while his au pair is on holiday and Kelly fits the bill. What starts out as a harmless way to pass another lonely Christmas for Kelly leads the two to realize that it’s ok to start over in love and that when you meet the right one, you just know. ❤ It was a sweet romance that had no drama, I’m just mad that there was no sex 😉
