Around this time last year, I did an If You Like post about books involving weddings. It seemed appropriate now to do an If You Like, as a follow up, as it were, about books with pregnant heroines.
So, if you like books where the heroine is enceinte for all or most of the novel, you’ll probably like….
— Donna Andrews’s Stork Raving Mad (mystery), in which murder and mayhem ensue as Meg Langslow is awaiting the birth of twins;
— Susan Elizabeth Phillips’s Nobody’s Baby But Mine (contemporary romance), in which a physicist cons a football player into fathering her child, only to find herself married to the man (one of those plots that really shouldn’t work, but, because it’s SEP, somehow does);
— Susan Wiggs’s Just Breathe (contemporary romance), in which the heroine discovers she’s pregnant just as she also discovers that her husband is cheating on her, and moves cross country to re-start her life in her old hometown;
— Georgette Heyer’s A Civil Contract (Regency romance), which covers the hero and heroine’s first year of marriage, including the birth of their first child;
— Kathleen E. Woodiwiss’s The Flame and the Flower (Old School Historical Bodice Ripper) in which the hero mistakes the heroine for a prostitute, impregnates her, marries her, and carries her off to his plantation in America.
What are your favorite novels with pregnant heroines?
