Review: A Ring For The Pregnant Debutante Laura Martin


Print Length: 
Publisher: Harlequin (July 18, 2017)

From Goodreads.com: From baby bump to marriage vows! 

Rosa Rothwell knows her pregnancy is scandalous. She will do anything to protect her baby, even staging a daring escape from her family's Italian home. Rosa has no idea what the future holds--until a handsome but infuriating stranger offers his help.

Convinced his family is cursed, Lord Hunter believes he's far better off alone. But the pregnant debutante's sweet nature touches him deeply. Can he confront his demons at last, and give them both a new future...as husband and wife?

My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

This story was interesting on a few levels. To begin with, it was nothing like the usual historical romances that I have read in the past. Never before have I read about a titled man so willing to allow a child not of his blood to be claimed and have the title passed to them. Obviously it made sense when you consider the "curse" that Lord Hunter believed his family to be under. 

I also had to question the "curse" that Rosa fell under. Although she was never mentioned as having one, this poor girl was under attack almost from the get-go. Unmarried, pregnant and exiled. Locked up by family, accosted by pick-pockets, being robbed.. how much can happen to one person before they become cursed? 

Aside from those minor things, I really enjoyed this story. The banter between Rosa and Lord Hunter was amusing, and watching them fall in love was a fun ride. There were times when I wanted to smack them both for dancing around what was right in front of them, but all in all, I think the way it was done really worked for the story. 

Overall, I do think this novel will still appeal to those who enjoy a historical romance with engaging characters that are able to suspend the usual "rules" when it comes to read such a novel. I would read more from this author! 

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.
