Christmastime with a stranger—
A lifetime together?
Neurosurgeon Maxwell is determined to atone for the one life he couldn’t save…his late wife’s. Set to perform delicate surgery on a king, Max finds himself shadowed by PR director Ayanna. They must work together to keep the king’s case a secret. But when Ayanna temporarily moves in to Max’s apartment, they face a very different type of tension—their undeniable attraction!
Neurosurgeon’s Christmas to Remember finds Seattle General PR director, Ayanna Franklin thrust into chaos on her very first day. She only has a few short weeks to put together a big hospital fundraiser. Add to that, she has to keep a VIP’s admittance to the hospital under wraps from the media. As if her day wasn’t packed enough, she has to drive to the airport and escort Neurosurgeon Dr. Maxwell Granger, who is flying in to treat King Roberto of Isola Verde, to the hospital. Ayanna’s time is wasted when she finds out Max has found his own way to Seattle General.
Max has no time for lollygagging. With the King being severely injured in a car accident and potentially jeopardizing his scheduled future surgery, time is of the essence. Max sees no reason for Ayanna to babysit him or treat him as a child. But she does. When Ayanna needs a place to stay while her apartment is being worked on, Max offers her the extra room in his hotel suite. As the two spend time together, their attraction grows. Max is even treated to Thanksgiving with Ayanna and her large, nosey family.
I've liked Traci's books before but Neurosurgeon’s Christmas to Remember is the first book I've loved beyond measure. From start to finish, I loved every single thing about this story. All the characters were great from Ayanna and Max to her parents and siblings. Ayanna and Max are still dealing with their pasts. They’re both reluctant when it comes to love, and believe long hours at work will alleviate their loneliness. They need to learn to trust themselves and others. Watching them slowly come out of their shells and trust each other was wonderful to witness. Their back and forth banter definitely made the story.
If you could only read one Christmas romance this season, Traci’s Neurosurgeon’s Christmas to Remember is that book.
