Launch – Note from the Author
. . . I hope you’ll join Pepper, Simon and Daisy this Christmas as they make peace with the past, embrace the miracles of the present and are filled with hope for the future.
For Him and My Family – Review
“Love the abandoned puppy in the story. The author has a distinctive flair to her writing that makes it a pleasure to read. . . . If you love a good romance this book is for you. . . . This is strictly a light-hearted romance that you will enjoy reading curled up in a blanket with a cup of hot tea on a snowy day.”
Thoughts of a Blonde – Excerpt
Was this really happening?
An invitation to one of the most exclusive parties in New York City. It didn’t get much better than this.
Okay, it wasn’t quite an invitation. Still, she was here among the crème de la crème of New York society—actresses, models, politicians, and the list went on. How she got here shouldn’t matter, right?
And, okay, she just happened to be one of the waitstaff. Not an actual guest. But still, this wasn’t just any party. This was Simon Ross’s party at the top of the tower. She stifled a squeal of delight as she considered pinching herself just to make sure this was real.

With Simon standing so close to her, she had to tilt her chin upward for their gazes to meet. As she stared into his dark eyes, she felt as though she could get lost in them. She couldn’t think of anything she’d rather do than spend the evening with him.
“I’d like to go to dinner with you.”
His voice lowered even more. “You don’t know how long I’ve wanted to ask you out.”
He nodded. “You intrigue me.”
Rockin’ Book Reviews – Review
“This was a, mostly, predictable tale, but was so effectively written, I could not put it down. It captured my complete interest.”
Liberty’s Literary Loves – Excerpt
“Can I ask you a question?”
He shrugged. “Sure.”
“If you like animals enough to start up a chain of pet stores, why don’t you own one?”
Simon didn’t want to think about the past and how he’d wanted a puppy so badly. Yet the door to the past had been cracked open and now the memories slithered through, filling his mind.
Andi’s Book Reviews – Review
“I’m a sucker for holiday stories. . . . It took me a while to fall for them as a couple, because there was such a slow burn and that awkwardness between the two of them. But I did still root for them along the way. And as in all good romances, things start falling into place in the best of ways. I read through it in one evening.”
Baroness’ Book Trove – Review
“Her Christmas Pregnancy Surprise by Jennifer Faye is another laugh-out-loud book. I loved this book; it feels like, with every story, her books get better. Simon and Pepper are the definitive definitions of opposite’s do attract. There are a lot of things to love about this book, but you should read it for yourself. This book deserves the five stars I’m giving it and recommending it to everyone that loves a romance.”
Melissa McClone – Excerpt
The new bakery was pulling out all the stops with big ads, radio spots and every other promotion they could think of. The bakery was part of a national chain that could afford to undercut their prices to drive the competition out of business. Then once the competitors were out of business, they’d jack up their prices. The nerve of some people.
But Pepper refused to let them drive her out of business—not without a big fight. She’d sunk everything she had into making this bakery a success. It was a dream of hers—a dream that she refused to let die, even if it meant doing things that she wouldn’t otherwise have done, like working round the clock if she had to. The chain couldn’t keep up their deep discounts forever. At least, she hoped not.
Peaceful Pastime – Review
“Overall, I found this heartwarming story a fast and end entertaining read. I normally find novels about billionaires a little unbelievable but that wasn’t the case in this book.”

“I loved the dog in the story named Daisy. Pepper falls in love with Daisy. . . . I love the author’s books. I think this one of my favorites. It was such an enjoyable story with the dog.”
Jorie Loves A Story – Review
“Faye tucks you into the plausible way in which two contemporary career-driven individuals can find each other quite randomly (or was it?) in their ordinary lives and find a strength of connection . . . . Faye charms you with the quirky way in which she allowed Daisy, Simon and Pepper [to] develop into a family – giving you pause for thought about the intricate ways in which our lives can be affected by each other whilst renewing your joy of a romance set during the Christmas season where anything is truly possible when it comes to love, romance and the hopefulness of second chances!”
Wishful Endings – Excerpt
He nodded. “Elaine Haskins is my assistant and the party is at my country home.”
Pepper’s face creased with lines of frustration. She didn’t say a word as she digested the information.
“I’m sorry,” he said. “This is my fault. Everyone was so impressed with you at the office party that Elaine added you to our catering list. After what happened between us, I forgot to say anything to her. I totally understand you wanting to cancel—”
“Cancel?” Her shoulders straightened and she lifted her chin slightly. “I’m not canceling.”
Splashes of Joy – Review
“This is quite the Christmas story, with a little surprise thrown in to make it a bit of a surprise. I enjoyed Pepper’s character. . . . This is a nice sweet read, it only took a few hours to read.”

Her Christmas Pregnancy Surprise
By Jennifer Faye
Paperback & ebook, 256 Pages
November 1st 2019 by Harlequin Romance
A festive reunion…
…with an unexpected gift!
When Pepper Kane’s home and bakery are burned down in the weeks before Christmas, billionaire CEO Simon Ross—the man she spent one unforgettable night with—comes to the rescue! Pepper knows this playboy doesn’t do relationships, but staying with him in his penthouse and caring for an abandoned puppy, their spark is rekindled… And then comes a festive surprise that shocks them both: she’s carrying his baby!
I’m so sorry that I’m late with the review. I’ve been out of work with my back (worker’s comp) and physical therapy is not for the weak. What can I say about Ms. Faye? I love her writing and characters. So much in fact that I have now subscribed to get this line in the mail every month. Thank you, Ms. Faye! In fact, I’ve already read this month’s books. But, I really need to write this review.
As most know, I’ve read the last 3 or 4 books by Ms. Faye and I will have to say this is my favorite so far. Most reviewers will say that about every book that they read but this time I mean it. There was something that really dug into my heart with Pepper and Simon and I’m still thinking about them. They were both wounded in some way but not where they couldn’t overcome it in the end. Pepper with the loss of her grandmother/bakery/home and Simon with his brother and the guilt that followed him. I just really understood them in a way that I haven’t gotten with some of the other books that I’ve read lately.
It was almost like I was reading a very intimate character study with a romance that was slow-burning on the side. These two had a lot to overcome within themselves and then each other. Simon and Pepper were very honest with each other from the beginning when it came to relationships. And they had their own reasons for it and I respect that in a romance and real life. Both of them were highly successful in their careers and it was heartwarming to learn why they had the careers and what led up to it. Simon’s was a bit heartbreaking though. And his mom in the end. *sniff*
There is a dog in the story, Daisy and normally I love dogs in a book but for some reason, it didn’t work for me. That said, when Pepper and Simon found out about the shelter worker and how just awful she was and how you wished Karma was real. Trust me, it’s real in this book. Unfortunately, people like her exist and it sucks.
The overall romance in the book is a slow burn. These two need to get to know each other before the romance starts. Sure, they put the cart before the horse but watching them grow within themselves and then as a couple is a treat. Ms. Faye takes her time with them and I really appreciate that in a romance. Simon and Pepper have a lot to deal with before they can be together. Being pregnant is just the beginning of that journey.
Peeps, I keep saying it but you really need to read Ms. Faye and the other Harlequin Romance authors. Ms. Faye delivers a heartwarming, swoon-worthy, Christmas themed romance that would make a great Hallmark movie. And I don’t watch Hallmark movies.
