A highly interesting book of the 9 Months Later series written by author Brenda Novak is entitled ‘Snow Baby’. It was released by the Harlequin Superromance in 2000. The book features Dillon Broderick, Chantel Miller, and Stacy Miller in the lead roles. At the story’s beginning, it is mentioned that Chantel Miller takes on a journey to go meet her estranged sister. Unexpectedly, she gets stuck in a snowstorm. Chantel prays somebody comes and rescues her. Just then, Dillon Broderick passes and sees the helpless Chantel Miller desperate to get out of the snowstorm. After rescuing Chantel, Dillon spends the next few hours to give her company until the storm passes away. And none of them realized when they came close and became intimate. That cold night created a special bond between Chantel and Miller, the one that got her pregnant. Just when she was thinking of breaking this news to Dillon and ask her to marry her, life intervenes and plays a spoil sport. Chantel’s sister, Stacy, had been estranged with her for the past 10 years. And she was on her way to meeting Stacy and regaining her affection when she came across Dillon and shared a night of passionate romance with him.

Dillon was also going to meet a woman, who also turns out to be Stacy. The two have been friends for a long time, now their relationship has become complicated as Stacy has developed feelings for him. When Dillon reveals to Chantel that her sister is in love with him and Chantel tells him that she is pregnant with his child, things become difficult for all three of them. Chantel Miller knows she cannot go ahead and have a relationship with the man her sister loves. If she does it, Stacy would become even more estranged with her and she won’t be able to get along with her ever. So, she asks Dillon to forget about the passionate love they shared on the snowy and that she has become pregnant because of it. Chantel makes up her mind to move away from Dillon and Stacy, and live a life all alone. She also decides to raise her child all by herself and never let him or her know his or her father is. Dillon knows he cannot let Chantel take such a big step. He makes it clear to her that he too has a say in this decision and he surely cannot let her go away. But, he finds himself in a big dilemma as he also cannot betray Stacy’s love. He just prays that God helps them find a solution suitable for all of them.
