An accidental pregnancy romance for Wishful’s most eligible bachelor
“Just a fling,” she said…
Tess Peyton wanted to do something fun and reckless and wholly out of character. A steamy weekend with a Scotsman seems like a plan. When her Scotsman turns out to be a good Southern boy, that’s a minor deviation. Then one night turns to two, two turns to more, and suddenly she knows she’s in way over her head. This is why one should always stick to the plan.
“Bachelor for life,” he said…
But that was before all of Mitch Campbell’s friends, cousins, and even his little sister started pairing off like someone was building an ark. No wonder he fell, and fell hard, for his “no attachments, no last names” European fling. And just when he’s ready to tell the woman of his dreams that he wants to change that arrangement, she disappears, leaving him with no means of tracking her down, and a big ol’ hole in his heart.
And then Fate stepped in…
Because, guess what? The guy Tess ran out on in Edinburgh shows up at family dinner. He’s her dad’s new wife’s brother’s son. What does that make them? It makes them “on again,” according to Mitch and the explosive chemistry between them. Tess feels it too, along with a side of awkward, continued uncertainty, and some kind of stomach virus that seems to bother her most in the mornings…
Point of view:
3rd Person. Alternating perspectives, not always by chapter, but it’s clearly defined.
After a few weeks away – I’m back in Wishful!!!! This is the 10th book in Kait Nolan’s Wishful series. While Mitch & Tess have appeared or been mentioned a few times in other books, you could listen to this on it’s own. However, you might enjoy this more after listening to To Get Me To You and See You Again.
Dear Kait Nolan – THANK YOU! There are few things in romance that drive me crazier than a “surprise pregnancy” where the couple took no measures to prevent conception. I love that Mitch & Tess are surprised because it’s actually a surprise.
As with all of Nolan’s books this is a great mix of slightly steamy romance and small town craziness this time with a vacation fling that becomes something more. I enjoyed Mitch & Tess as “opposites attract” characters who are willing to work at understanding where the other is coming from even if it takes them a bit to get there.
The epilogue is an adorable and hilarious HEA for Tess & Mitch. I’m on to Ryan & Hannah’s book, A Lot Like Christmas.
Amy McFadden gives another delightful performance here. I always appreciate how she manages to give so. many. characters. their own unique voices. It’s just such a fun listen.
About the author:
Kait Nolan is a RITA® Award-winning Mississippi author who calls everyone sugar, honey, or darlin’, and can wield a ‘Bless your heart’ like a Snuggie or a saber, depending on requirements. She believes in love, laughter, and that tacos are the world’s most perfect food. When she’s not writing, reading, working the evil day job, or wrangling family (both the two-legged and the four-), you can find her obsessively watching The Great British Bake Off.

About the narrator:
From Amy McFadden’s website: Hi! This part is all about me. Just me. It feels weird to write a bunch of stuff about myself but I don’t like pictures of me so I’ll have to use words instead.
I live in Michigan with my fiancé, Joe Anderson. He makes me laugh so much I never have to do situps. Truthfully, I probably wouldn’t do situps anyway, but hey, it’s still a nice bonus to our love.
I’m an actress now, and I used to be a 2nd grade teacher. I loved that part of my life, but after doing it for a bunch of years, I was ready to move on to the next version of me. They’re not really very different versions-teachers and actresses both reach out and engage people through stories. I’m NOT a morning person, but waking up to tell stories makes mornings better-than-tolerable.
I love books and the Muppets and smart people and kind people (not necessarily in that order) and sleeping and chocolate and coffee and writers and learning and Oreo cookies and a bunch of other stuff-but I’m starting to make myself gag on all this love.
I hate a bunch of stuff, too, but who cares about that junk? It’s probably the same stuff you hate, so I won’t bore you. Except I REALLY hate listening to people eat bananas.
