Reunited by a Baby Secret by Michelle Douglas

This is book three in The Vineyards of Calanetti series and although I have not read the first two in the series I did enjoy this story the setting is so lovely.

Marianna Amatucci has two older brothers that have doted on her since she was young and all three siblings run the vineyard and each have their jobs to do but Marianna can be fiery and has the habit of breaking up with her boyfriends on a regular basis which in turn causes her brothers to have a nickname for them all so Marianna decides to take some time of and have a holiday to see if when she gets back home that she will settle more and after some time in Australia she stops of in Bali for a quick break and there she has a very sensual fling with surfer Ryan White but when she arrives home things change drastically for her when there are consequences from that fling.

Ryan White grew up with his grandmother after his parents divorced when he was young and he always felt left out of the families they both had later but he has made something of his life and is now well known in the corporate world but he is a loner and shows no emotion he has no intention of ever settling down so one night stands is what he is after although with the fling in Bali that was a week.

When Marianna confronts Ryan with the news about the baby he is shocked and this starts a very rocky journey to a HEA that will have you smiling Marianna is of course Italian and feisty and determined to get Ryan to make peace with his family so as he can move on in life Ryan is such a tortured hero and he is determined that his child will never feel the way he did as a kid and this one had me smiling when Marianna got through to Ryan and he opened up and the banter between them both and Marianna's brothers is wonderful a very enjoyable read.

REUNITED BY A BABY SECRET by author Michelle Douglas is a September 2015 release by Harlequin Romance series.

Marianna Amatucci was back from her Thai holiday but the holiday fling left her with its consequence. She was pregnant and now she needed to see Ryan White, the surfer dude she’d met on a Thai beach.

But coming face-to-face with Ryan was a different matter altogether. He was not her surfer dude, he was a business tycoon. Could she tell him her secret and hope for the best? What would Ryan do? He definitely didn’t think of himself as father material, could he hope for a miracle and get a family with Marianna?

REUNITED BY A BABY SECRET is a shimmering romance filled with emotions. Author Michelle Douglas, once again astounds her readers with her spell-binding storytelling.

Highly recommended for all readers of romance.

Michelle Douglas writes the prettiest books, they are always so romantic and gosh darn it I don’t how she does it but she always manages to make me cry before the end of chapter one.

This time I met Marianna, after a vacation in paradise she returns to her family vineyard. She’s determined to make a fresh start but two blue lines on a pregnancy test reveals she’s about to face the pitter patter of two little feet instead.  It’s not the kind of souvenir anyone brings back from holiday so to say she’s a little freaked out and should rather have grabbed some other trinkets is an understatement.

But the unexpected is about to get a lot worse when she finds out that the farther , Ryan , is nothing like the laid back , charming surfer she met on the beach. He is the opposite as in no shorts but instead a tailored suit, and as far from laid back as can be, and living in a penthouse ! Instantly Marianna is worried about what life would be like for their child if he or she has to grow up with a high flying corporate father.

Firstly I have to say how much I adored the character of Marianna, she was feisty and in your face the whole time, or well rather she was in Ryan’s face the whole time. Worried and scared of course but certainly not the type to back down. Ryan was the tear jerker character for me and his past brought me to tears.

But their journey to happily ever after is one that overshadowed the hurt and anger, it brought such a huge smile to my face that I definitely looked like I just got some kind of love note. In a way I did because the author gave me a stunning message , just as she always does, through the characters and their journey of up’s and down’s I was reminded that our past hurts, but it hurts even more when you don’t face up to it. The pain, anger and frustration from the past will never just up and leave, it will always come back again and again and yet again.

Learning to face up to it, to control it, to understand it, is the only way you will be able to find happiness. I highly recommend this read for all fans of romance reads that have a lot of emotion, emotion that is literally drawn out of you from the very depths of your soul. Michelle Douglas is a true romance author in every sense of the word!
