"Pregnant with a Royal Baby!" [The Princes of Xaviera Series, Book 1] by Susan Meier

Author's Book Description : Marrying for the baby's sake

Prince Dominic Sancho has always lived up to his family's royal expectations. Until one irresistibly spontaneous night with teacher Ginny Jones has dramatic repercussions—she's now carrying the next heir to Xaviera's throne! There's only one solution—a royal wedding…

A marriage of convenience is Ginny's worst nightmare, but for their baby's sake, she says "I do." And as the royal couple jet off on their honeymoon, she begins to realize that beneath the royal etiquette, Dominic is a daddy—and loving husband—in the making!

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Virginia (Ginny), a guidance counselor, meets Dominic (Dom), a prince, while he's making a diplomatic visit to the United States. They have a fling that leaves Ginny pregnant and Dom's father insists that they marry but because both of them have trust issues they come up with a plan to stay together for two years than divorce, all the while getting to know one another but planning on keeping love out of the equation. Soon Ginny finds that it's harder to do then she had hoped and as they get closer, will Ginny be able to prove to Dom that them as a permanent family is a good thing? Or will their plans and hopes come crumbling down around them?

While this is a sweet romance that skips over the sex scenes, it is definitely cute and keeps the readers intrigued from beginning to end. I enjoyed learning about the royal family and how all these characters interacted with one another. Plus the build-up for a story for Dom's younger brother Alex was interesting too.

Nevertheless, this novel is ALL about Ginny & Dom. Their hopes and fears are all laid bare, and though I'm still not happy with how cold Dom held himself to be for most of this novel, I enjoyed the execution of how the plot was laid out and how Ginny showed some backbone. When they weren't hiding behind their fears Ginny and Dom made a great couple!

I recommend this novel to those looking for a Cinderella-esque sweet romance.

Book Teaser(s) :
Unlike her ugly blue dress, his tux appeared to have been made for him. Again he was every inch a prince. Handsome. Debonair. Regal.
While she looked like a frumpy old bat.
"You look lovely."
"I look like the Queen of England. Get me a hat and one of those sedate purses she carries all the time and people would probably get us confused."
He laughed. "You are meeting a king."
"Who wants to be reminded of his grandmother?"
"You do not look like a grandmother."
"Well, I sure as hell don't look like a twenty-five-year-old guidance counselor in the coolest school in Texas."
"Trust me. You will want the armor of a grandma dress when you meet my dad." ~ within Chapter 2
