I am a little shocked at all the five star reviews for this book. It wasn't a bad book but nowhere near a five star read.

The story is a sweet little Hallmarky Christmas romance between a social worker heroine and the man she tracks down to adopt his deceased sister's baby girl. I like the premise and the first half of the book worked well for me as she tracked him down to his cabin in the woods and tried to get him to adopt the baby so she wouldn't go into foster care. The second half it went d...more

What a wonderful debut book this is by an author who I just recently discovered and inhaled all three of her books these past three days.
Loved this couple who had so much baggage in their childhood years that it determined who they became as adults.The heroine as a foundling ,then foster child with no permanent home to call her own and the hero whose mother died when he was ten and left with an abusive father as his caregiver.His sister,younger than him had ceased to cope and had turned t...more

I despise books when two people meet, they get along, then instantly out of nowhere their suddenly in love. THEN to top it all off their suddenly this serious couple and are acting like they've known and been together for years. This is what the couple in this book was like.

Then there is this young little girl. I really wanted to get to know her. I say young because we don't get to know her age. In fact we get to know little about her. She was there- in the story- then suddenly she wasn't. I do...more

Great debut novel by Victoria James. Emotional, sweet, heartwarming read with christmas as background. Both Hannah and Jackson are authentic characters with same miserable childhood but different attitude to life. Hannah is a social worker with a heart of gold. Too involved in the cases assigned to her, she sometimes crosses the lines. That's what she does when she took baby Emily to her uncle, Jackson, to convince him to adopt her. Despite what she has been through, she loves Christma...more

I love the holidays and holiday romances, and still with all my incredibly high expectations and positive prejudices this story managed to surpass them all and blow me away! Yes, Victoria James' debut novel was that good and even more!

The Billionaire's Christmas Baby is a wonderfully emotional story, and despite the romance being featured centre stage, I would still say that there are so many other important facets to this story (adoption of a little girl, less than ideal childhoods, problems of...more

Originally Reviewed For: Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and Fantasy

It's a book about.. well lots of things but to me it was about making your own choices and becoming who you are. Two people with horrid childhoods but took different paths in adulthood. One who honestly and completely believed.. and one, well he didn't.

Hannah Woods had a horrible childhood. Abandoned on the church steps as an infant and grew up in a series of foster homes, some good, some not so good. But she never stopped believi...more

The reason that I decided to read this book is because I heard so much about it. It was all over everyone’s blogs and so I decided that I would give the book a go and read it. I was so glad that I did.

This book is kinda sad, but it does have a great outcome. It deals with a lot of real life situations such as drug abuse, suicide, social workers and foster care. It is about overcoming bad situations in your life an...more

4.5 Star Review:

The Billionare's Christmas Baby by Victoria James was a heart-warming and emotional holiday story filled with sorrow, love and hope that captured my attention from the beginning. I enjoyed the witty dialogue between the two main characters and the pace of the story was smooth and flowed quite nicely without missing a beat.

I really enjoyed the heroine, Hannah Woods and her determination in making sure baby Emily would not fall into the foster care system after her mom, Louisa, aba...more

I loved this story so much. I have been waiting for entangled to put out more books in there indulgence series but it seems like forever since they did. I loved Jackson and Hannah's characters because they felt real and their background genuine. I loved the Emily element and how she factored into everything. I loved the epilogue and will be looking for more from this author maybe Ethan and Allison's story.
Jennifer Faye
"The Billionaire's Christmas Baby" was a very touching, moving holiday romance. The hero, Jackson, is very alpha with a tender, warm center. And the heroine, Hannah, is strong/fiesty. She's the perfect match for him. Toss in an adorable baby and a snow storm and you have the makings of a compelling story.

I was surprised I got hooked on reading this book from start to end! It was funny, sexy, romantic and had a serious side that dealt with situations that could happen to anyone. Overall, it's just one of those "feel good" books with a HEA!

The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby is a story I REALLY wanted to read. After reading one of Victoria James’ other books, I pretty much just had to get all of her books. I must say this book did EXACTLY what I needed it to do. I’ve been reading like a robot for weeks now and I pretty much was looking at reading like a chore and I wasn’t enjoying it. I needed this book to pick me up and make me smile and fall in love with reading again. It definitely d...more

Christmas miracles are out of this world when two very deserving people with a horrible past can build something new and wonderful.

This story is about a woman that can’t have a little girl go into the foster system when she has a next of kin. Hannah Woods knows exactly what happens in the system. It was Emily’s mother’s wish, Louise, that Hannah find her brother, Christopher James. When Hannah finally finds him he is a very successful founder and CEO of North America’s largest computer software...more

Wow, another winner from author Victoria James. I love holiday romances, babies and stories about billionaires. So after reading the book blurb, The Billionaire's Christmas Baby became a must read. It is a wonderful book, replete with great characters, a plot that twists and turns in all the right places, and an intelligent love story.

Social worker Hannah Woods spent her childhood in the foster care system and in spite of the harrowing experiences she lived through, evolved into a smart, beautif...more

This wonderful book focusses on the very thing we tend to take for granted at this time of year amongst the craziness of shopping, wrapping and cooking. Family.

Victoria James has handled a sensitive issue with compassion and given us a story that is heartfelt, touching and romantic, with moments that will make you smile, feel complete joy and tug on your heartstrings. Jackson and Hannah are wonderful characters; he is the guarded grumpy single CEO happiest in his own company and she the fiercel...more

I love holiday romances and THE BILLIONAIRE'S CHRISTMAS BABY is so charming. The Christmas theme heightened the conflict and really added an extra touch of romance to the story. I immediately fell in love with the heroine - she seemed like someone I would be friends with in real life, and I instantly connected with her. There were sprinkles of humorous elements that added to the character development and caused me to bond with the characters all the more. The chemistry between Hannah and Jackson...more

This is a heartfelt story. Hannah and Jackson are at odds the minute they meet. They both have very similar backgrounds and psychological problems. The difference is that Hannah is the eternal optimist always looking for a better outcome. Jackson has given up hope and is very guarded with his approach to life and emotions.

Needless to say, there two are meant to butt heads and this makes this story very entertaining. In the middle of this, the author has placed a baby's future. I love how the sto...more
