I always like the books with the female underdog. You know the one who is the "ugly" sister and is made to feel small by her family. This is one of those books and there is the "prince charming" to take her away and shows her that she is actually the beautiful one. Well, this is one of those books. It was the reason I picked up the book.
It's been a bit since I read this but Richard wasn't your typical HP jerk. He did have his charming moments. This is a good read and nice for anyone who likes the underdog and of course, the baby theme! :-)
