Pregnant by Morning (Harlequin Desire)
by Kat Cantrell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Evangeline has lost her singing voice, something that was intrinsic to her being, it was how she defined herself and it was how she escaped. Matthew lost himself and his purpose when his wife died. Both have lost their purpose and when they find each other at a party in Venice, they feel connected. Maybe what they recognize in each other is their inner turmoil. Maybe it is good old fashioned lost. Regardless, these two connect in a physical and emotional level. They enter into a no strings attached, let’s see what each day brings and heal each other relationship. What results is a beautiful story of healing and romance.
I am hard pressed to find something that I didn’t like in this story. It doesn’t go into insta-love (thank you thank you thank you). Instead, it starts off with a deep, near-primal attraction. Throughout the story, the characters grow, share and connect even deeper. Their lives become linked without them even realizing or even wanting.
I am impressed with the beautiful story Kat Cantrell has created. For what is supposed to be an easy afternoon romance read, it ran quite deep. There was good character development and veritable growth. The writing was easy and well done. Not too badly edited and there aren’t any glaring grammatical errors (the ones that make one want to grab a red pen). I definitely recommend this book. Of all the recent romance books I have read, this is one of the best this year.
