Awkward, revealing title aside, I was drawn to this book by its cover. It features a flame-haired woman (just as she’s described in the book) having her prominent abdomen touched by the man leaning over her. It’s a strange image, one that combines glamorous sensuality and the prospect of staid domesticity. Was this a modern image of a caring man or an unrealistic depiction of a pregnant woman that is found only in imaginary romantic scenarios? Disregarding the clumsy title and silly cover, I hoped to find something better inside than promised by the blurb. Alas, no. Lucas Marcelos is your typical contemporary lothario and rich playboy. He and he alone gets to decide what’s best for his unborn child. He doesn’t kidnap or keep his lady love prisoner like male protagonist in “The Sheik’s Pregnant Prisoner”. But he’s cut from the same cloth: arrogant, ruthless, cocksure and willing to throw around money and power to get what he wants. He feels no compunction in getting her fired from her current job simply because he thinks he’s got a better offer, an action that fills her with outrage. Yet she leaves her job and her country to head off with him anyway. To be fair to her, Emma Fane doesn’t roll over automatically for him nor play the pampered princess like Lauren Hamby. She stubbornly insists that she be given a proper job, no matter how much he longs to swaddle her in luxury and keep her in the apartment adjoining his. Incredibly, she gets her way. She proves to be competent and hardworking, a worthy match for Lucas. Emma has a backbone and a will of steel. She fully deserves her prince and thus this novel wins a grudging three-star rating. You can’t judge a book by its cover but you can get mightily confused by it. However, if you can look past the initial perplexity posed by this paperback, you might be gratified by a truly powerful female protagonist.
