Year of publication: 2018. The author kindly gave me a copy to read and review

The heroine: Marketing employee Izzy (Isobel) ?

The blurb: Technically, I might be breaking and entering. I didn’t come down the chimney, and I’m no Ho (Ho Ho).But I did get my hands on his . . . Surprise Package.

When I arrive at my remote holiday cottage, I don’t expect to find a hot Scotsman in my bed. I also don’t plan on being snowed in with him. He says I have the wrong address—that the cottage is his. But I think there’s another story. One I’m determined to get out of him.

Meanwhile, we’re stuck. Running out of clothes and sharing body heat. Okay, so that’s just wishful thinking. Because the man is the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen in pajama pants, let alone touched . . .


I was man-handled in my bed by a hot brunette. I thought Christmas had come early. But then the snow came, trapping us. Good job we get along like a house on fire. Sparks flying. Fingers burned. We’re hot for each other now, but when the snow melts will we find out we’re just too different to make this work?

The review: If you want a hot, sexy story that will make you want to move to Scotland right now, then this is the book for you! Donna Alam is one of the best romance authors out there and she doesn’t disappoint with Surprise Package.

It’s December and Izzy has made her way from London to a remote cottage in Scotland to attend a friend’s wedding. Her love life is a disaster and her best friend has cancelled on her at the last minute, but promises to make it up to her with a fabulous gift. She didn’t quite expect the gift he bestows upon her to come in the form of the sexy Scottish man she finds naked in her bed, but given the unremarkable way her love life has turned out, she doesn’t kick him out.

Greg insists that Izzy is in his home and there’s been some sort of mix up, but before they can sort anything out a snowstorm hits, leaving them both trapped in the cottage. They try to fight their attraction to the stranger before them, but it doesn’t take long before lust takes over and they’re indulging in the hottest sex either of them has ever had. In between the bouts of sex, they get to know each other better, revealing secrets about their past.

When the storm finally eases several days later, it’s time to return to the real world, but neither of them really want to go. Will their pasts come back to haunt them, ruining any chance they might have of being together? Will Izzy’s secret destroy everything? Can they actually make a relationship work, living in two countries? You’ll just have to read it and find out! Another scorching hot, five star romance from one of my favourite authors.
