The romance equivalent of Pat the Bunny by Dorothy Kunhardt

Hi, I'm big shutdown Russian her. Yavoh!

Bg Ruskie hero sees the sweet and honorable heroine and falls for.

Big Ruskie hero pats the heroine A LOT.

Heroine gets pregnant but gets scared. No, wait. She has a pregnancy scare.

Evil OW/PA is really, really mean, and hides the heroine's letters to the big Ruskie hero since the bunny heroine goes for bedrest.

Ruskie hero is mad and bad until he realizes that the evil OW/PA is the true evil-doer.

Ruskie hero wants to pat the bunny
On revisiting this one (with distance from the things that bothered me the first time), I added a star. They really do communicate well and the reasons given for their separation did carry weight. In fact, I rather fault her more, for not actually traveling to his office or their NY home to actually see him. I guess they are both at fault (but him more so of course!, (cheeky smile)).

I had expectations for this one but it didn't deliver. Good bones for a HP-modeled story. Too much telling or inner monologue, lack of depth made this a skimmer. The child acted much older than a 3-year old. The evil PA, gf wannabe provided much of the "separation" and lack of communication - she wouldn't put through calls and hid all letters - but she kept them in a file in case she needed to clear herself. The OW began to drink vodka because the H is Russian and kind of gets hooked on i

This story could have been epic. Hero walks away from his pregnant bride, refusing to talk to her ever again. Leaving her to move on with her life without him, and to raise their daughter all by herself. I really adore this theme in stories, the struggles the heroine goes through and the challenge of making it and raising a baby all by herself. This one really started out strong.

But then, I soon found out this was all a miscommunication between the two. Mikhail thought his wife had walked out o

Ridiculously cute and sweet. It was nothing like the books I'm used to, but I liked it a lot. Funny how you get the whole plot from the title of the novella alone. Nothing more, nothing less than what it said. Quick, fun, sweet read.

I really enjoyed this book. Little Victoria was the star of this book. Victoria was three years old, smart, sweet, and simple adorable. She only knew her father by the pictures that her mother Kristen showed her, and by the stories that they found on line about him. Her father Mikhail was a rich business man. Victoria loved spending each weekend with her mom, looking for new stories about her dad. The first time she saw her dad in person, she ran too him, and hugged him hard. She never wanted to ...more

This is a short but sweet and light romance book. It doesn't have that much drama like a general 'secret-child' book has but that actually tips the scale in its favour.
I would recommend it for all those who just want a break from very intense and overwhelming reads !!
4 'the cold never bothered me anyway' stars !!

Cute short storry. The cute part is for Victoria.. cuttie little pie who is 3 but talks and act like a 5 year old. The ending seems abrupt like this wasn't supposed to be a short story.
Completely clueless hero. Heroine sent him letters every month for three years detailing everything their little girl did and his assistant hid them all because she was hot for him and was determined to get him to notice her and he never once questioned why his wife disappeared on him. Clueless fool.
Xai Xai
The book had so much potential, but the ending was so abrupt the reader wouldn't know what hit him. I enjoyed Tory, the couple 's child very much....

A sweet read.

Passion flares between Mikhail and Kristen leading to a quick marriage and an early pregnancy. Almost losing her baby before she knew it about scares Kristen, leading her to make a tough choice. Believing he lost his baby and almost his wife leaves Mikhail with the knowledge that Kristen has gotten under his skin.

In the 3 years apart, Kristen never gives up hope that Mikhail will join them and sends him letters and pictures and also keeps her smart daughter updated on her dad. After

If you like Harlequin type stories, you might find this entertaining although the plot is totally unbelievable.
No, just no. Dropped this at about 50%. The characters were all stupid and unbelievable. The guy has nothing going for him except for a thick checkbook and well functioning netherparts apparently and the chick is dumb (How? She's supposed to be a lawyer for fudge's sake!) and a doormat. Heck, even the just-turned-3 years old daughter made me roll my eyes because she talks like a much older child.... So yeah. There was nothing in this book that made me want to keep on reading and I couldn't remot ...more
Super annoying hero character! The story didn't make sense to me. How can a husband believe his secretary more than his own wife?! If that so, just marry your damn secretary. And how can a wife has no any access to her husband if not through his secretary? In this modern world, i can't believe if the husband doesn't have his own phone to begin with. The story just didn't make any sense. The child in the story also acted so much older than her age that again, made the story feel so unreal. Did no ...more

The characters did not feel developed and the pacing was bad. They just decided to kiss and make up at the 90 something percent part of the book cause the H finally could open up a bit about his past. Definitely felt rushed.

Also, hated that the H would rather believe his secretary than the h. The Secretary is also dumb as hell. Why would she keep the letters. Convenient plot device and lazy writing.
Sumedha (the wordy habitat)
I liked it. The characters were good, and the MC had her senses and didn't get back with the guy the second she saw him, or forgive him. There was actual misunderstanding and evil-doer here which made me feel better. The male MC was understanding, too. There was sufficient focus on the daughter.

The only thing I got bothered by was that the ending was too abrupt. Before I knew it, the book was over, especially when I felt like there'll be another couple chapters left.

The Tycoon's Toddler Surprise...

A delightful read. Funny and angst filled characters. Passionate and heartfelt. Miscommunication and betrayal tears them apart. Love and perseverance brings them back together.

Recommend. Overall this was an enjoyable story. Kristen & Mikhail strong connection was not destroyed by time and a meddling Secretary. The little surprise Mikhail received was an added bonus. Sex was 🔥.

The cover is too graphic for the book. A three year old girl running to her surprised father would have fit the book better.
When her stressful New York life leads pregnant Kristen to find herself in hospital, she knows she has to make some changes. Leaving her husband, Mikhail, and moving closer to her family is her first port of call, but that doesn't mean that she's leaving him for good, nor does it mean she doesn't want him in her daughter's life.

There's not much that I can say about this book. I didn't outright hate it, but I definitely didn't like it either.

It was a short story, but I don't think that means th
