A jerk, a
modern day knight and a baby: a wonderful romance read
Expecting a Miracle
Jackie Braun's short romance Expecting A Miracle tells the story
of a heroine whose unexpected pregnancy leads her to find true love.
The contrast between two men provides an amusing yet heart-warming look
into the nature of love and power.
Lauren Seville and her husband Holden agreed not to have children when
they got married so when she miraculously conceives, he wants nothing
to do with the pregnancy and threatens divorce. Lauren packs her bags
and leaves. When she stops by the side of the road to catch her breath,
Gavin O'Donnell stops to see if she needs assistance. With no place to
go, Lauren decides to rent the cottage on his land. The two can't help
but form a friendship, but will her miraculous pregnancy lead to other
unexpected results like love and a real family? Does fate have a way of
bringing together two people in a way can heals the past?
Lauren's husband is a total jerk, the ultimate cad and just a
horrifying man. Self-centered and addicted to power and money in the
extreme, Holden provides the reader with an image of a man whose
attraction is all appearance. A true love match with a man who places
convenience and show above love makes neither for true love or
fatherhood. Gavin makes a perfect contrast to Holden. Gavin is
respectful and his power originates from an inner strength and caring
for others. A kind of knight in shining armor, Gavin rescues her in a
most distressful situation, but Gavin is a modern knight, one whose
rescue empowers the heroine. Lauren's growing love for Gavin opens her
heart to her own gifts. In the beginning, Lauren is helpless before her
husband's power but certainly not at the end. Gavin O'Donnell is a
wonderful hero! Readers will love the way Holden receives justice and
his comeuppance with the powerful statement of the nature of true power
and manhood at the end of this romance!
Jackie Braun has a writing style that makes it easy for readers to fall
into her settings and her characters. The surroundings of Gavin's
estate and cottage are a fantasy location in their nurturing quiet, a
landscape made for rejuvenation and inspiration. Jackie Braun's writing
style makes Expecting A Miracle
a smooth read yet also a read with powerfully emotional and dynamic
conflicts. Holden's character, a man so horrible the reader can only
imagine what might be his next villainous move, adds a bit of exciting
suspense. Once Lauren makes a bold move to follow her heart, however,
her relationship to Holden will never be the same! Expecting A Miracle is a delightful romance read where a
good man and woman find love, a baby finds a true father, and a bad man
just the kind of justice he deserves. Jackie Braun's Expecting A Miracle is a romance
with a heavenly setting in its peacefulness, a heart-stealing hero and
dynamic tension filled encounters. Very highly recommended!
