The Bride's Baby (A Bride for All Seasons #1) by Liz Fielding

The Bride's Baby (Harlequin Romance)

The wedding of the season!

Events manager Sylvie Smith is organizing a glittering fund-raising event: a wedding show in a stately home. She has even been roped into pretending to be a bride; a bride who's five months pregnant!

The bride everyone is talking about!

It should be every girl's dream to design a wedding with no expense spared, but it's not Sylvie's. Longbourne Court was her ancestral home, and she's just discovered that the new owner is Tom McFarlane; her baby's secret father. Now Tom's standing in front of her, looking at her bump.

Every once in a while I like to take a break from my more serious reads to enjoy a bit of fluff which means I usually turn to my stash of Harlequin romances, plus last year I was lucky enough to discover Liz Fielding and fell for the cute way she writes her romances.

However this one just didn't appeal to me in the same way her other book that I read by her did. This one's characters Sylvia and Tom didn't seem to really connect to each other in a way that worked for me. I know some may think that this is because this is one of the Harlequin UK titles that target for a  different audience but I tend to like these ones a lot.

I guess my main issue was Tom, who had little to no redeemable qualities for me even when the book was ending all I saw was the same brutish man that has issues with his past. I really found the way he treated Sylvia as mildly verbally abusive and I swear if he ever talked to me in the manner he continuously talked to everyone in the book well, lets just say he'd learn that that kind of thing just doesn't fly with me. I guess another reason I didn't like Tom at all was because I've known men like him and I can't stand them so yeah I'm probably just taking issues with a fictional character out of proportion but I didn't like him. However, let me say that I did TRY to like him. Obviously this was unsuccessful. So how Sylvia let him in her knickers and her heart just astounds me.

I did like Sylvia though I found her attraction to Tom distasteful I thought she was sweet and likable. While she started off with a bit of a backbone when it came to Tom in the beginning it was as though once she let him in her knickers all her sensibilities and intelligence went out the window. Thankfully though she was able to get it back.

So basically there were things about The Bride's Baby that I didn't like, there were still somethings that really appealed to me and that was the overall style of the writing. Even though this one wasn't as enjoyable for me as her other book I read was I think Liz Fielding is a wonderful author and I'll read anything she writes. This book just wasn't too my tastes as much.

I recommend this book and all of Liz's other books to lovers of contemporary romance especially if you love Harlequin titles. I think they're great summer reads perfect to spend reading in the garden, at the beach or the pool. They're equally good for reading on a cold winter night as well.
