Okay. I admit it. Eric is my new "book boyfriend". He is a prince, but for one night he is just doing a favour pitching in for a singer friend at a wedding.. He meets Clara, who is waitressing at the wedding. and they hook up for one night, where she becomes pregnant. This story is cute, the hero and heroine real, with real reactions and feelings. A quick and really entertaining read. I was provided with this book in return for an unpaid, unbiased review.
A very high 4 for The Billionaire Prince's Pregnant Fiancée. I was pleasantly surprised by this quick Leslie North read. I've read several North books, but they've all been of the cowboy variety. I almost passed on this one due to the cheesier-than-most title, but I'm glad I gave it a shot. Clara is your average twentysomething Londoner, working several jobs while trying to save up money to go back to Oxford to finish her degree in politics. The third-to-last thing she expects when working a wedding is to have a one-night fling with the hunky wedding singer. The second-to-last thing she expects is that she'll find herself pregnant as a result. The actual last thing she expects is to discover that the hunky wedding singer is actually a prince of the nearby island nation of Fervia. It is a happy coincidence then when Prince Erik discovers that it's up to him to produce the next crown prince or princess; his brother--the current crown prince--has just learned that he cannot have children. Therefore, when Clara reaches out to a royal lawyer in the hopes of getting modest child support, she's shocked to receive a proposal instead. Clara's initial acceptance as a royal fiancée by the king and Erik's brother is a little convenient seeing as she's truly a commoner and not Fervian to boot. When Clara's obvious affinity for politics nearly creates an international incident, the king's reversal is more believable. I was willing to suspend my disbelief though because Erik and Clara are just too darned cute together. I love that she is strong and smart and knows her politics, and I adore that he sucks at it but is proud of her. Also, it doesn't hurt that he excels at making--literally--beautiful music. Overall, I really enjoyed this cupcake of a novel. I received an ARC of this book from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion. Thanks!
