"Wish Upon A Star" by Sarah Morgan

"Christy" [Previously published as "The Christmas Marriage Rescue"]

My Story Summary : Feeling that she was being left behind in her marriage, Christy thought the only way she could bring things around (and be noticed) is by leaving. Secretly hoping that her husband, Alessandro, would come for her, and their kids, and drag her home. However, that never happened. So now with the kids' Christmas break coming up and the number one thing on their Christmas lists are to have their family together for the holidays. Which give Christy the perfect excuse to go home, see her husband again, and possibly pick up the pieces of their marriage for the better.

Unless, Alessandro didn't come after her because he really wants to get a divorce, but he can't want that .... right?

My Story Review : 3 out of 5 stars. This was a cute and steamy story of a pair of stubborn and prideful people who are learning how to possibly save their marriage. It also helps that they have two nosy kids of their own that are willing to do anything to bring them back together too. All of the characters were great, plus the setting and hospital details I couldn't get enough of.

Story Teaser :
Alessandro eyed the dangerous glint in her eye and felt the hot burn of lust spread through his body. He'd always loved her passion and strength. The fact that she was afraid of nothing. 'You're a strong woman, that's true, querida,' he drawled, 'but---'
'But nothing! Believe it or not, I still have a brain, Alessandro, and giving birth to your children hasn't changed that fact.' Passion and fire burned in her eyes and he was suddenly relieved that she'd put the knife down. ~ within Chapter 2

"Miranda" [Previously published as "The Midwife's Christmas Miracle"]

My Story Summary : Miranda just moved to the Lake District and is trying to make a new, and better, life for herself and her unborn baby. She thinks nothing of taking a walk to clear her head and think about what has happened in her life recently. That is until she comes out of her daydreams she was having on a rock to find that it's snowing and the snow is so high that she isn't sure how to make it back to the parking lot where she left her bike. This is how Jake finds and meets Miranda, then gets her to go back to his place to spend the rest of Christmas with him. As the day progresses he admits to himself that he likes Miranda and he wants to get to know her better.

However, by the next day she has taken off without leaving her number for him, yet without meaning to he finds her later that day in his department at the hospital working there. Over the next couple of days, which turn into months, Jake takes it upon himself to take care of Miranda and find out the secrets she seems to be hiding and the reasons behind them. But will he be able to change Miranda's mind about never wanting to be in a romantic relationship again or will her secrets hold her back??

My Story Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. This was a sweet story of a fiercely independent woman and a very determined man who need each other more then either first realizes. However, even though Miranda is very reluctant to start anything, Jake plans to win her over at all costs made this story interesting.

What I didn't like was how slow this story was in comparison to the first one. Blah .... it could have been a bit better. =0/

Story Teaser :
'Has anyone ever told you that you're controlling?'
He smiled and strolled towards the door. 'Frequently. Blame it on the job. Occasionally I'm required to make instant, unilateral decisions. Sometimes that spills into my personal life.'
She watched him leave, a small, regretful smile on her face. ~ within Chapter 6
