Thats what I'm looking for , I don't care what historical time period only that its before lets say the 1930's. The hero dosen't have to be the father of the baby. Thanks for any input  you have!!!

Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. But for a complete understanding of the story, you'll want to read Outlander first.

Thanks but ya no I've never really like the books by Diana Gabaldon . I know lots of other people like her books , I don't know why I don't like those books I guess I 'm just weird that way. Thanks though!!

I'm interested in this topic too.  I just read one -- she was carrying the h's baby through insemination - and it was good.  of course I can't recall the name, but I'll work on it some more.

 There's  A Scandalous Marriage by Cathy Maxwell.  Read that one a long while back, but I seem to remember it being pretty decent.  Hero comes upon the heroine the night she goes in labor actually.  And they knew each other before.  It's not his baby.

Annie's Song by Catherine Anderson - Terrific story, IMO.

Cold Night, Warm Stranger by Jill Gregory - Don't let the name keep you from checking it out.

Ha, I have a couple of these! (the story line intrigued me too) They may need to be moved closer to the top of Mt. TBR:)

Um thats kinda hard to answer. my best  answer is i want the book story to be strongly influenced by the pregnancy so i would say that the pregnancy should at least start near the begining of the book not the end like in many historicals. Hope this helped sorry if it diddnt make any sense!!
