Romance Book Review: Merry Christmas, Paige

Author: Mackenzie McKade
ISBN: 978-1-60504-698-3
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance, Holiday theme
Publisher: Samhain Publishing, Ltd.


It had been five years since Paige had stepped foot on the island of Kauai and with good reason. Her ex-fiance had broken her heart and left her for another woman. While flying to Fuji Paige's flight is diverted to Kauai. After saving a young boy's life she is asked to help out at the local hospital. Her first patient of the night turns out the be the daughter of her long lost love.

Nathan is just days away from his divorce and anxious to get to Denver so he can beg for the love of his life, Paige, to take him back. He is prepared to do anything he can to convince her to take a chance on him again. It seems like fate when he rushes to the hospital after hearing of his daughter's injury and runs right into Paige. Now he will stop at nothing to convince her that she is right where she needs to be.

Cute story of a love that never faded despite the detour it took. If I had one complaint it would be that there was just a little too much crying going on throughout the book. Other than that, there were several hot love scenes and a sweet ending.

One fateful detour. A raging storm. She didn’t see this love coming…

Holding a knife against a child’s throat isn’t exactly how Dr. Paige Weston had planned to spend her Christmas holiday. But a jolt from an air pocket and here she is, performing an emergency tracheotomy as her flight to Fiji diverts to Kauai. The one place she swore never to return.

Beside the fact her patient comes first, what’s the chance she’ll run into her ex-fiancé—the man who jilted her when another woman turned up pregnant? Then she realizes the island hospital is woefully understaffed, forcing her to lend a hand. And upping the odds that her heart will hit more turbulence before she makes her escape.

Nathan Cross can’t believe his eyes. The emergency room doctor tending to his daughter’s cut foot is the woman he’s dreamed about every night since he was forced to walk out of her life. He should have been prepared for her indifference, but he’s blindsided by the need to hold her in his arms. Just one more time.

Yet Fate is a trickster, leaving him wondering if he should grasp for a second chance…or take his punishment for one, long-ago choice.
