Yuletide Baby Surprise is a wonderful Christmas Story. Dr. Rowan
Yuletide Baby Surprise is a wonderful Christmas Story. Dr. Rowan Boothe is a hot alpha male that devotes his life to helping others. Dr Mariama Mandara is a princess that is camera shy and feels most herself when immerse in her work. Mari does not always see eye to eye with Rowan. The sparks flying between the two just jump off the page. I love the emotional roller coaster this book takes you on. Catherine Mann never disappoints! Yuletide Baby Surprise is a must read! I was given an ARC for my honest review.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Yuletide Baby Surprise by Catherine MannWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Princess Mariama Mandara is more comfortable in her baggy clothes and doing data analysis than playing the princess role. Why anyone is interested in the fact she's speaking at a conference, she just doesn't understand. So when a couple of picture seeking teenagers track her down she quickly dons an abandoned waiter jacket and delivers the waiting food cart. It's not until she's inside with the cart that she realizes it's her most vocal critic Dr. Roman Boothe's hotel room. Time to leave!
Roman has been enamored with Mari for years. Sure, she's trashed his work but she just looks so good and is so smart that he can't help feel they need to spend some time together.
I enjoyed this Billionaires and Babies holiday story. Mari starts out so awkwardly handling the baby and Roman is so at ease that you know they are going to teach each other and share some precious moments together. It was wonderful seeing Mari grow her confidence with the baby and her world and at the same time have Roman become even more enthralled with Mari. And throughout the story the reminder of the holiday with the carols and the costumes made me want to break out my own holiday CD's and start playing them.
Peace and Happy Holidays whichever time of the year it may be.
I received a copy of this book via an author contest.

I recommend this book.
I enjoyed this book by Catherine. This book includes passion, laughs, heartache, and an abandoned baby.
If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books first from “The Alpha Brotherhood” series.
An Inconvenient Affair
All or Nothing
Playing for Keeps
Princess Dr. Mariama "Mari" Mandara is on the run from royal fans. She needs to find a way to escape the fans and fast. That is when she comes across a room service tray. She decides to pretend to deliver the tray to the assigned room.
Dr. Rowan Boothe is in town for a conference and is awaiting his evening meal. When his meal arrives he realizes that the delivery person is non-other than his professional nemesis Dr. Mandara.
Under the room service cart they find an abandoned baby. As Rowan has wanted Mari for a while he decides to keep her close any way he can. His plan is they will take care of the baby together so she is not in the system and sent to a group home. In order to care for the baby Mari should share his suite and they should take care of the baby as a couple.
Now they must learn to get along with each other without becoming attached to the baby. As they try to track down the mother with the help of resources from friends and the Royal fans they learn more about each other and develop feelings for each other.
Will they be able to set aside their work differences to come together and take care of this baby? What is going to happen when the mother is found? Where will that leave them?
The chemistry between these two is awesome. Love both the characters was a little mad about how the baby situation ended up. Rowan and Mari really draw you into the story.
Look forward to the next book in this series.

Yuletide Baby Surprise is a Billionaires and Baby¿s novel, as we
Yuletide Baby Surprise is a Billionaires and Baby’s novel, as well as Mann’s Alpha Brotherhood. This is the story of Dr. Rowan Boothe and Princess Mariama Mandara. Because it is a Billionaires and Baby’s book it does not have the mystery subtext found in the previous Alpha Brotherhood novels. The Interpool connection is there, but certainly downplayed. Similar to the other Brotherhood books it does center around an exotic locale, Cape Verde, Africa. To further enhance the exotic location, Mari is a Princess of a Western African country. Unfortunately she’d much rather spend her time in her medical lab than participate in the social outreach typically undertaken by those in her position.Was this review helpful?

Rowan and Mari have been professional adversaries for years. Both well-respected medical professionals they never quite saw eye-to-eye on the patient care strategies. Rowan invented a computer program to maximize triage in his African clinic and facilitate rapid patient care. Mari, more focused on ensuring a proper diagnosis, frequently expressed her negative opinion of Rowan and his work. She believed that the program took too many short-cuts and focused on the easy answers.
On the run from some over-zealous photographers, Mari inadvertently wheels a room service cart into Rowan’s suite. Upon examination the cart contains an infant with a note abandoning her to Rowan’s care. Capitalizing on the opportunity to get to know Mari better, Rowan convinces her to help him care for the infant while they look for her mother or other family. Caring for the infant shows that neither are exactly as the other thought.
Rowan and Mari were fun to spend time with. Their story moves quickly, but with the set-up of them knowing each other for years it doesn’t seem forced. Their previous professional fireworks lead nicely into their romantic interlude. The added impetus of being temporary parents only brings them together that much faster. As this is a Christmas tale, even the abandoned infant reunites with her family. All-told, this is a wonderful holiday interlude.
