There’s something ridiculously romantic about babies in Romance novels. Sometimes, I really feel like some good Pregnancy Romance books with lots of family love and babies who are really wanted…
However, I have found out that surprise pregnancy is not at all my theme. I’ve discussed this in detail before. But planned pregnancy is an entirely different thing and I love love LOVE those! That’s why I wanted to share with you my most favorite planned pregnancy Romance books. Of course, they all have fantastic Audible versions as well!

The Baby Maker
written by Lili Valente, narrated by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York
Some men are troublemakers or dealmakers. The men in my family?
We’re baby makers.
For six generations, the women of wine country have had a saying: don’t bang a Hunter man unless you want a bun in your oven.
Yeah, well. I’ve got a saying too: no thanks. The last thing I need is baby makes three. My business is expanding and the only thing I’m interested in getting knocked up is my bottom line.
But then one night Emma Haverford makes me an offer I can’t refuse–she backs away from the land I have my eye on in exchange for a favor…
A big, fat, baby making favor…
When I hear women have gotten pregnant shaking hands with Hunter men, I know I need Dylan Hunter’s…ahem, special skills…way more than I need to expand my vineyard.
I’m ready to give my heart to a child and I’m tired of waiting for my late-to-the-party Prince Charming to make my dreams come true.
So I promise Dylan–three months of hot, heavy, baby-making s-e-x and then I’m out of his hair forever.
But what if when it comes time to say good-bye, all I want to do is keep bottling up more memories with this big-hearted man?
I’m not a swooner. I read Romance books because I like reading and it’s the most relaxing genre for me. However, The Baby Maker did make me swoon quite a bit! So, there’s that 😀 Dylan melted my heart. And Emma? I totally felt for her.
If you feel like taking a little imaginary trip to a vineyard, this book has the perfect setting for you! It’s like you’re taking a wine vacation… with a super hunky neighbor who has magical man juice! The baby plan itself was exactly what I had been craving and Emma is a heroine you simply have to root for.
This is a super hot, very emotional story in a beautiful place with interesting and lovable people!

The Knocked-Up Plan
written by Lauren Blakely, narrated by Andi Arndt and Sebastian York
There are three little words most guys don’t want to hear on the first date. Not those…I mean these… “knock me up.”
This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it’s not true love. It’s a bun in the oven, and I’m not afraid to hit up my s-e-x-on-a-stick co-worker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty and charming — and he’s also a notorious commitment-phobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me.
I won’t fall for him, he won’t fall for me, and there’s no way baby will make three.
There are four words every guy wants to hear on the first date — “your place or mine?”
When my hot-as-sin co-worker makes me a no-strings-attached offer that involves her place, my place, any place — as well as any position — I can’t refuse. Besides, I’ve got my own reasons to take her up on her deal even with her one BIG condition.
There’s no way I’ll want more from one woman than any position, any where, any night? Except . . . what if I do?
The Knocked-Up Plan is one of the funniest and cutest pregnancy Romance books!
Ryker was burned from a previous breakup but is totally down for some no-strings help for his kind-of-friend / kind-of-co-worker Nicole. Alas, are there ever no strings in a Romance novel? Ryker and Nicole are both therapists and very open and clear about their feelings and wishes. It was pretty heartwrenching how they both dared to be vulnerable with each other.
This is one of my favorite Lauren Blakely books! It’s a steamy, entertaining romantic comedy that can give you tons of happy feels!

The Best Friend Problem
written by Mariah Ankenman, narrated by Charlotte North
Prudence Carlson has been lucky in life. A fulfilling wedding-planning business run with her girlfriends in Colorado, plus the best guy friend ever in her firefighter bestie Finn. All that’s missing from it is a baby. Luckily, it’s the 21st century – Pru can take matters into her own hands. She doesn’t need to find true love to create the future love of her life.
Except all this talk of babies and insemination and…Pru and Finn cross a line they never expected to. Sure, one night of passion won’t change their close friendship. Until Pru goes in for a fertility check-up to find… she’s already pregnant.
As best friends, Pru and Finn have survived college, new jobs, and bad breakups, but can they survive crib shopping, birth classes, and late-night cravings? Especially when Finn has never considered himself even remotely Daddy material?
The Best Friend Problem is an adorable, low-angst, friends-to-lovers pregnancy Romance!
Pru gets pregnant by accident (instead of getting pregnant the way she had planned) when she and her best friend Finn have what was supposed to be a drunken ONS. The two of them have pushed any thoughts of actually dating each other far, far away. They are not willing to risk their friendship and Finn believes his job is too dangerous to have a family of his own.
This is such a cute book with everyone rooting for Finn and Pru to get their happily ever after with baby!
written by Kendall Ryan, narrated by Virginia Rose and Sebastian York
“Will you help me?”
“With my sperm? Yes.”
From New York Times bestselling author, Kendall Ryan, comes a sexy new standalone romance.
We met in a trapped elevator.
Emmett was on his way to work, sophisticated and handsome in his tailored suit and tie.
I was on my way to the sperm bank. Awkward, right?
At thirty-five, my life hadn’t taken the path I thought it would and I was tired of waiting—I wanted a baby. And I was ready to take matters into my own hands to make it happen.
After our ill-fated elevator encounter, Emmett insisted on taking me to dinner—he also insisted on something else—that I ditch my plan involving a turkey baster and let him do the job. He would be my baby daddy. He was a wealthy and powerful CEO with little interest in diapers or playdates. And since he didn’t want kids, I’d be on my own once his bun was in my oven, free to go my own way.
But once his baby was inside me, it was like a switch had been flipped, and I got a whole lot more than I ever bargained for.
I had checked out a few reviews before buying Baby Daddy. And a lot of people complained about the “unrealistic” meet-cute. Well… yeah… they meet in an elevator and he decides on the spot that he’ll help her with her pregnancy plan. It’s right there in the
But the thing is… this planned pregnancy Romance book is about the path they take after they meet and make the baby agreement. And it was so adorable and emotional (and super hot)! I loved Jenna and Emmett. They were both real, 3-dimensional characters with relatable thoughts.
If you enjoy love stories between two strangers, give this one a try!
The Baby Proposition
written by Kim Loraine, narrated by J.F. Harding and Stella Hunter
When the woman I’ve longed for decides she wants to have a baby, there’s only one man for the job — me. Now, if I can just convince her.
I wanted Clara the first time I saw her two years ago, but as soon as I figured out we’d be working together, I knew I had to stay far away.
And the friend zone has been working just fine.
The night she tells me she’s ready to get knocked up by some random donor changes everything. Not on my watch.
I might not be partner material — running the family business and my new hockey team keeps me so busy. I barely have time to talk to a woman, let alone fall in love. But there’s no way I’m letting my friend pick Donor #257, or anyone besides me.
The arrangement is perfect. I make my donation, she gets her baby, we go back to being friends. No strings. No messy heartbreak.
Until we decide it’ll be a lot more fun to make a direct deposit and get her pregnant the old-fashioned way. That spark between us? It’s a blazing fire I have no desire to extinguish.
Our baby proposition just got a lot more complicated.
Are you ready for a hot cowboy? Because Maverick has a whole lot going for him! And not just that. The Baby Proposition is recorded in duet narration, making this an extra fun and steamy audiobook with J.F. Harding reading Maverick in all chapters, and Stella Hunter reading Clara.
The Baby Proposition is extremely captivating and it really scratched my itch for planned pregnancy Romance books! I felt so hard for these two. And I loved Kim Loraine’s little meta-comments on Romance books.
written by Laurelin Paige and Sierra Simone, narrated by Elena Wolfe and Jacob Morgan
From NYT Bestselling Author, Laurelin Paige and USA Today Bestselling Author, Sierra Simone comes a steamy contemporary romantic follow-up to last year’s bestseller P*rn Star.
You have the right to remain sexy.
Anything you say can and will be used to get you in my bed.
You have the right to use my body to give yourself a delirious, life-changing orgasm.
If you have trouble…don’t worry, I’m a bit of an expert in that department.
There’s nothing ‘thin’ about my blue line, if you catch my drift, and trust me, I know how to put those handcuffs to good use.
Livia Ward wants a baby before she’s thirty. And even though Officer Chase Kelly is exactly the kind of cocky jerk this librarian has sworn off, he is undeniably hot. Both of them think they can give each other what they want–a few nights of fun for Officer Kelly, a no-strings baby for Livia–but this hot cop is about to learn that sex, babies, and love don’t always play by the rules.
Hot Cop is such a fun and perfect choice when you are looking for planned pregnancy Romance books! Livia wants a baby and the eternal bachelor and extremely hot cop Chase was only supposed to get the very first part of the job done. He likes the idea of having a kid without ever committing to a family. Until he actually faces the reality of his child running around in the world not knowing him.
I loved Chase and the journey he takes in this book. And Livia is so lovable. The two have fantastic chemistry and, as you can expect from Laurelin Paige and Sierra Simone, this is a smoking hot Romance!
written by Sarina Bowen, narrated by Nicol Zanzarella and Rock Engle
A goalie has to trust his instincts, even when taking a shot to the heart.
Mike Beacon is a champion at defending the net, but off the ice he’s not so lucky. A widower and a single father, he’s never forgotten Lauren Williams, the ex who gave him the best year of his life. When Lauren reappears in the Bruisers office during the playoffs, Beacon sees his chance to make things right.
Lauren hates that she’s forced to travel with the team she used to work for and the man who broke her heart. There’s still undeniable sexual tension running between her and Mike, but she won’t go down that road again. She’s focused on her plans for the future – she doesn’t need a man to make her dreams of motherhood come true.
Lauren plays her best defensive game, but she’s no match for the dark-eyed goalie. When the field of play moves to Florida, things heat up on the beach.
One of Mike’s biggest fans – his teenage daughter – doesn’t approve. But a true competitor knows not to waste the perfect shot at love.
Lauren is a very self-reliant woman and since the relationship with the love of her life came to an ugly end, she decides to make her baby dream come true in a clinic.
Unlike in the previous three books, Pipe Dreams revolves mainly around Lauren and Mike getting their second chance. The baby plan is a bit of a catalyst for them, even though Lauren doesn’t plan in any way for Mike to be involved. This is an extremely heart-wrenching book given the history of loss that Mike and his daughter experienced.
If you enjoy second chance love stories, Pipe Dreams is the Pregnancy Romance for you!
A Lady Awakened
written by Cecilia Grant, narrated by Susan Ericksen
Newly widowed and desperate to protect her estate and beloved servants from her malevolent brother-in-law, Martha Russell conceives a daring plan. Or rather, a daring plan to conceive. After all, if she has an heir on the way, her future will be secured. Forsaking all she knows of propriety, Martha approaches her neighbor, a London exile with a wicked reputation, and offers a strictly business proposition: a month of illicit interludes… for a fee.
Theophilus Mirkwood ought to be insulted. Should be appalled. But how can he resist this siren in widow’s weeds, whose offer is simply too outrageously tempting to decline? Determined she’ll get her money’s worth, Theo endeavors to awaken this shamefully neglected beauty to the pleasures of the flesh-only to find her dead set against taking any enjoyment in the scandalous bargain. Surely she can’t resist him forever. But could a lady’s sweet surrender open their hearts to the most unexpected arrival of all… love?
In this Historical Romance, a lady desperately needs a child. Not so much out of her wish to have one, but because of the difficult societal structures she lives in.
A Lady Awakened is an insanely good book! If you get a bit of a kick out of initially awkward bedroom scenes this one is a must-read. The love story is so sweet and tender. The surrounding storyline is intriguing and kept me pretty much on the edge of my seat. And I absolutely adored this version of planned pregnancy Romance books!
Nobody’s Baby But Mine
written by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, narrated by Anna Fields
Genius physics professor Dr. Jane Darlington desperately wants a baby. But finding a father won’t be easy. Jane’s super-intelligence made her feel like a freak when she was growing up, and she’s determined to spare her own child that suffering. Which means she must find someone very special to father her child. Someone who’s more comfortable working out his muscles than exercising his brain.
Cal Bonner, the Chicago Stars’ legendary quarterback, seems like the perfect choice. But his champion good looks and down-home ways are deceiving. Dr. Jane is about to learn a little too late that this good ol’ boy is a lot smarter than he lets on—and he’s not about to be used and abandoned by a brainy, baby-mad schemer.
Nobody’s Baby But Mine is a classic by Romancelandia terms where things evolve very quickly – which means this book from 1997 has a lot of iffy moments that might well make today’s reader cringe. Nevertheless, this book made me laugh out many times! It’s entertaining and a wonderful take on the planned pregnancy Romance trope.
Jane makes an awful, awful mistake. But she is still somehow extremely charming and lovable. And really, the same goes for Cal who most definitely is a problematic hero. Yet, if you go in reading this book as set in the time it was written in (and when they rock out to Rod Stewart while watching VH1 it’s really not hard to remember that these are the 90s, haha), it’s very enjoyable indeed and a great addition for everyone looking for planned pregnancy Romance books!
I hope you will enjoy these pregnancy Romance books. I loved them all! The audiobook productions for all of these books are outstanding and if you are looking for cute, steamy, and emotional Romance novels that end with “and baby makes 3” these books will be perfect for you!/
