My Rating: 4 stars
The Billionaire Prince’s Pregnant Fiancée continues the Undercover Princes series with a couple who heat up the pages with sizzling passion and emotional decisions when a sudden proposal brings Clara into the royal spotlight. Well, the marriage proposal along with an unexpected pregnancy will change the plans Clara had for herself and this was a decision she would not go into lightly. Oh, she knew what the right thing to do was, but was it really the right thing for her as well becomes the question that keeps rolling through her mind.
I enjoyed Erik and Clara’s romance very much. Since Erik never expected to be in line to lead his country as their king one day, that honor belongs to his brother, he was perfectly content to live his life, work for his country as needed, and enjoy his true passion for music. In fact, it’s through his music, and a favor to a friend, that he and Clara met. An attraction that neither ignored at the wedding where she worked as wait staff and he was on the stage as a singer in the band would soon find them back in Erik’s hotel room… and as they say, the rest is history.
When it’s discovered that Erik’s brother and his wife cannot have children, no heir to the throne, it is decided to pass the line of succession to Erik – so now he’s under tremendous pressure to marry and quickly. Unknown to him his one passionate night with Clara, a woman who remains on his mind, has resulted in a pregnancy that he is just learning about. What follows is a whirlwind courtship as Erik tries to convince Clara that becoming his wife, providing their child with two parents (no matter whether they are royal or not) is in everyone’s best interests. Yet, Clara had dreams of her own, political dreams that will now have to take a backseat. Are the feelings she’s grappling with enough to take a chance on, will she risk her heart for a man who still has some growing up to do if he is ever to fulfill his duties as King one day?
The Billionaire Prince’s Pregnant Fiancée is a delightful, sizzling romance with characters who feel real and act accordingly. I liked them both and was engaged in watching how they would turn this unexpected marriage and baby into a family that loves fiercely and freely. I’m never disappointed with this author, she will always lead me through twists in plots, unexpected decisions, yet always to that happy ending that each couple needs to find. Clara and Erik work so well together, so expect some passion, laughter, uncertainty, and a growing love ahead as you dive into their story.
