Feature book: Snowbound Surprise for the Billionaire
Snowbound Surprise for the Billionaire by Michelle Douglas
Adelaide (Addie) Ramsey is hoping to sell her family farm and then go travelling in Europe to fulfil the dream she and her best friend, Robbie, have talked about for years. Her plans don’t go smoothly when Flynn Mather buys the farm with the condition that Addie stays at the farm for two years to help develop it. To sweeten the deal, he offers her a free airline ticket and four weeks leave for every year she works with him, plus a six-week trip to Munich, leaving immediately, to work as his PA. With Christmas fast approaching and Addie reluctant to spend her first Christmas at the farm alone (her father died four months before), she agrees.
Flynn had hoped to make the farm into a home base, and he sees Addie as being a much-needed employee to ensure success. He hopes that by taking her to Munich, he can fulfil her dreams of travel and she will then be happy to stay put on the farm. He hadn’t counted on Addie’s spontaneity and her desire to not waste a moment. As he seeks revenge on a business associate of his deceased father, he finds himself charmed by Addie’s reactions to Munich and the brief interludes when he does actually need a PA.
Sexual tension begins to grow as they learn more about each other, but their progress towards their goals are putting them on two separate paths, which will ultimately pull them apart. Ms Douglas has written a Christmas romance with two leading characters you will be cheering for immediately. There are very interesting secondary characters, and as an added benefit, you can also enjoy some of the sights of Munich. I know Christmas is still a couple of months away; however, as you start to prepare for 2015 Christmas reading, this sweet book would be a great way to tap into your Christmas spirit. I highly recommend this story. Ms Douglas certainly knows how to write a lovely Christmas romance.
