I read Surprise Baby for the Heir in paperback. This is a romance set in Scotland. I couldn't put this book down until I found out how it was going to end. Elspeth who is training to be a doctor has a one night stand after a wedding with a man named Fraser who didn't do relationships. But when she falls pregnant after her one night stand with Fraser, my first thought was how is she supposed to get in contact with a man she had a one night stand with? And what did they both do now? With a baby on ...more

“We are going to be friends. We are going to raise this child together. And we are never going to talk about that night again.”

After breaking off her engagement, Elspeth passes her wedding booking to her boss, and is therefore obliged to attend what would have been her own wedding as a guest. Fraser is a reluctant groomsman for his cousin, and, sensing that Elspeth is similarly in need of an escape from the festivities, one night together is about to change both their lives in ways they never th

SURPRISE BABY FOR THE HEIR by author Ellie Darkins is a February 2019 release by Harlequin Romance series.

Elspeth had no time for love. But she had a passion filled night with a stranger. And the consequence was she was now pregnant with his baby. But would she agree to Fraser’s way of thinking?

Fraser was surely different from her ex-fiancé and what he asked for was not unreasonable. He wanted to create a family with her. And she did have feelings for him. Could she let the temptation run her

Elspeth a trainee doctor who gets accidentally pregnant from her one-night stand with Fraser, a Scottish laird.

Elspeth is a strong hardworking and seriously responsible character, her loving and natural caregiving instincts only enhances her charm. I admire her determination to strike balance between her demanding career and family needs (where her sister Sarah needs near constant help due to her physical limitations). Having recently broken off her engagement, one night of fun with groomsmen ak

It all began at her wedding that wasn't her wedding. She had broken off her engagement to Alex six months before their marriage was to take place. Fortunately her boss had become engaged at the same time she broke off her engagement and took over the venue and other wedding plans so she wouldn't be out the deposits. That's how Elspeth met Fraser. Fraser was there because he was a groomsman for his cousin. The venue, The Royal Botanical Garden in Edinburgh, Scotland was beautiful. All the guests, ...more

From one night, to forever! The latest from Ellie Darkins is fast paced and enjoyable. Two lonely hearts collide for a night of passion that neither of them expect to go any further ... until she finds out a few weeks later that they are having a baby! There were a few plot holes here and there and lacked a bit of authenticity in the dialect of a true Scot, but overall it was a solid read with a heartfelt story line.

Elspeth has responsibility coming out of her ears, so when she gets the chance t

I must admit I'm a bit of a sucker for Scottish-themed romance and I saw this one and thought it would be ideal to read over the Christmas period. (bit of useless information: I'd just had both cataracts done and so the large print edition was ideal for me this time.) Elspeth (trainee doctor) meets gorgeous Fraser at a wedding and their one night stand results in a surprise pregnancy. Just what neither of them wants in their life as both have issues - professional and personal - which would make ...more

Well what can I say other than if you want to spend a few hours reading a heartwarming and gorgeous story then look no further! In Surprise Baby for the Heir we meet Elspeth and Fraser who after one night find their lives changed forever. What follows is a sweet and tender story, both characters are built up perfectly by Ellie Darkins especially as we see their pasts explored.

There is a little bit of drama along the way to make things very interesting and family really is at the heart of the sto

If there’s ever a quote to summarize the romance between Fraser and Elspeth it’s this one from Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert —“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.”
Ellie Darkins brings two polar opposites together in this divine novel, where it’s a clash of fierce emotions and

Once again Elie Darkins writes a beautiful love story in a glorious setting. A story of family and responsibility and finding love when you least expect it all against the backdrop of the Scottish Highlands. Funny, poignant and sexy. Bravo!
