    One night leads to a career woman's nightmare... but will it lead to love?

    EXECUTIVE MOTHER-TO-BE by Nicola Marsh details a successful career woman's worst nightmare -- having to lose control when she is accustomed to being in control. Humorous, rich in small details, this short romance is well-written and an enjoyable light read with just the right amount of depth to be emotionally moving without being a tear-jerker. Kristen Lewis TV producer sits in a Singapore bar, stood up by a co-worker buddy in favor of a young temp worker. Hard working to the max and driven, Kristen knows the loneliness of hotels and bars. When she eyes the handsome Nate, dark and morose but ever so sexy, she feels like she has met a kindred soul. As the CEO for his own company, Nate seems to understand her long hours and her passion for work. Together they share a fabulous night. Months later, Kristen walks into her first day of work at a new job. Called in to meet her new boss, Nathan Boyd, Kristen is shocked to see the face of her Singapore Nate, the man she cannot get out of her heart. Both driven professionals, Kristen and Nate decide to keep things on a professional level --- but their decision chafes at their very hearts. Then, the worst thing possible happens to this single-minded, focused career girl --- not only is she pregnant but she is pregnant with Nate's baby! Besides being a wonderful light read, interspersed with some tense moments, several areas in Executive Mother-To-Be drew my attention. Nicola Marsh has a precise skill in setting a scene so that when she writes about the characters, the reader is drawn to them and understands them behind the exterior. Her style is quick, sharp and focused --- in just a few well-chosen descriptions, the reader is right there on the scene and in the hearts of her characters. The dialogue is fun, witty and dynamic. As Nate and Kristen encounter each other and spend time together in Australia, the reader feels them become more and more comfortable with one another through the change in their dialogue. Nicola Marsh's characterization adds an enjoyable dimension to this short romance. Nate is an interesting hero, a good guy with past hurts. The reader feels his frustrations and pain as well as his love for the heroine. When faced with her worst nightmare, the heroine changes in her relation to others. The romantic conflict in EXECUTIVE MOTHER-TO-BE is not a hero and heroine against each other but two career driven individuals trying to figure out how to make room for each other and a third person. As the romance evolves, so do the characters. Nicola Marsh adds several very well-done details that help the reader understand Kristen and how she could end up in the situation she did and still be an intelligent woman. Nicola Marsh writes dramatic moments well --- quick plot with precise details, allowing the story itself to tell the drama.
