I always enjoy category romances because they are usually a fast-paced story that I can zip through in an evening. One of my favorite tropes it the "Oops, we're pregnant" so I was really looking forward to His Pregnant Princess Bride.  Unfortunately, this book just wasn't very engaging. 

While I really liked Gervais and his brothers, I couldn't connect with Erika. I don't know if it's because the author was trying too hard to make her seem foreign, English wasn't her first language, but She came off as being cold and stiff. I understand that she was royalty and had been raised with certain expectations, which she liked to buck, though I  felt that she fell flat, there was limited warmth and dimension to her.

Gervais was far from perfect. Although, while he had some major trust issues, he was still able to show that he had a caring nature and his character felt multidimensional. He was more personable and likable than Erika.
