Start your review of A Mistake, a Prince and a Pregnancy. Mar 01, Ana rated it really liked it Shelves: zz-read-in , z-harlequin-presents.
Alison is a career woman who is deathly afraid of relationship. She decided to get pregnant artificially. Everything would have gone splendidly if there wasn't a mix-up at the clinic, and now she is carrying Maximo's child. She went to let him know about it, but she didn't expect his reaction to the news.
He expects her to marry him so that they could raise the child together. Prince Maximo Rossi has given up any hope of having a wife and children after his IMO disastrous marriage. His honour i Alison is a career woman who is deathly afraid of relationship. His honour is not the only reason he wants to marry Alison. He wants his child. But he has problems accepting the fact that he's falling for her. But he still doesn't lash out which is a good thing. I like how Alison didn't just bow to Maximo's wishes.
She considered every aspect and only when she was certain it was the best thing for her child, she agreed to marry him. We also have Maximo who let her see not only the prince, but the man inside as well. As long as you don't consider the impossibility of the plot, the story is pretty good, but not good enough for 5 stars. I also had a small problem with Maximo, I didn't like him much, don't get me wrong he was okay, but nothing special.

Maisey Yates takes the royal and sperm-bank mix-up themes and combines them in a very satisfactory manner with An Accidental Birthright. He was more on the beta end of the scale, which didn't make him a pushover.
He was a nice guy. Although he was born royal, he had a huge work ethic and really cared about his country and his people. I liked that he never disrespected Alison.
He showed her a lot of consideration, Maisey Yates takes the royal and sperm-bank mix-up themes and combines them in a very satisfactory manner with An Accidental Birthright.
He showed her a lot of consideration, and was quite long-suffering with her issues. I feel that his marriage damaged him emotionally, because he took on too much blame for his deceased wife's emotional immaturity. She tended to hold onto her fears of commitment a bit too much, and it was almost frustrating for me to see her be so dogmatic about her determination not to be involved.
I did like Alison a lot. She was a strong woman who set a plan in motion for her life, and stuck to it, even through the hardships she faced. Yates has a clear, modern, unique writing style, but she gives the reader of HPs what is classic and desired in this line of books, at the same time. The only thing that I didn't like as much was the roller-coaster that Alison was on with her fears of involvement.
I thought it was very cowardly of her to want a celibate marriage in which her husband would be given the go-ahead to cheat on her. I can't see a logical woman standing for that when she had good chemistry and liking for her spouse. I could understand her fears, but I wish she had not taken so long to give herself the opportunity to be loved as a woman after so many years of loneliness with a really good guy like Max. As far as Max, I didn't like that he was determined not to love Alison.
I can understand him feeling wounded by his last marriage, but he was given a gift of a child, and a good woman to love and to marry. I felt that he should have been a little braver about taking that chance for a happy future. Other than the overlong angst and waffling of the characters, I really enjoyed reading this love story. I'd give it 4.

I was so hoping that this book was going to equal or surpass a great Royal IVF mix up story that I read a few days ago. Unfortunately, it did not. I was so disappointed. This one was quite on the ridiculous side. I was so put off by the repetition of the heroine not wanting love Again, I say, does this mean every family member and everyone you meet in the world is going to cause you pain Does it mean that in orde I was so hoping that this book was going to equal or surpass a great Royal IVF mix up story that I read a few days ago.
Does it mean that in order to have a child by IVF and love it more than anything that you must not love anyone else so that you can 'save up' that love for your child only? I didn't realize we had an internal love-o-meter to show us when our love was used up.
Good thing she wasn't having quads or there wouldn't have been enough to go around. What would you do if you loved your baby's father and there wasn't enough love left for your baby?!! Truthfully, that was the most ignorant thing I have heard of in a long time. If you are having a child your love supply will run out, your love tank goes to E and there is nothing left.
The hero had his own hangups. He was a widower and his wife had been unable to give him children. He continued to love her but when she felt like such a failure due to her infertility she closed herself off to him and yet he remained faithful and devoted.
In fact, she took it out on him even though she was the one infertile. She died after their last try at IVF in an accident. I say run, don't walk away from this book.
It was not worth a free afternoon of my time. I wanted to hurl. I should have gone by a friend's review but, no, I had to see for myself! I should also mention that the progress of this story moved along very slowly and I was frequently tempted to skip until I found something interesting.
Let's keep in touch!
