The Billionaire's Pregnant Mistress by Lucy Monroe

When Greek billionaire Dimitri Petronides is forced to give up Xandra Fortune, his beautiful mistress, he's certain she won't be too distraught. For all the intense passion they've shared she's never let him into her heart, and such a commitment-shy woman could never be his wife... But after their split, Dimitri discovers that Xandra Fortune is not who he thought she was - and she is also pregnant with his child. Now he has to track her down and claim his mistress as his wife!

Alright, so y'all know I'm basically obsessed with anything and everything Lucy Monroe, so I'll spare you the usual rave about her and her other books.

Though I will mention (briefly) that y'all should check out her blog. She's such a neat lady, and very interactive with her readers. I have no idea where she finds the time, though. I'd be hiding in a dark closet screaming, I can't take anymore, if I had her schedule. LOL

Anyway...on to my review.

I'm really feeling these short Harlequin novels right now. Well, the ones from LM, anyway. I'm not brave enough to try any of the other author's Harlequin novels, because I love the longer ones and I don't want to be disappointed. See, I love her stories because she's great at wrapping everything up. One of the readers on her blog referred to certain endings as "Scooby Doo Endings". you know, the ones where everythings tied up in a neat little bow at the end and you're not left hanging. Well, that's how LM's stories are. Short or long, I don't feel like I was left hanging.

Dimitri was an awesome hero. Seemingly cold and unfeeling, he had the perfect constitution for a tortured hero..which he was. Though I was EXTREMELY angry at him for his mistreatment of the heroine early in the book, LM is wonderful at turning characters around and making me love them...despite their idiotic actions.

I loved that Xandra didn't just fall at his feet, either. She really stuck to her guns and refused to be cowed by him. I love that in a heroine.

Overall it was a great read. I liked the interaction between the h/h and I loved watching the story play out. I love it when a story gets me tied up emotionally, as this one did.

I sent up an extra prayer this morning that LM never decides to quit writing. The romance community would suffer greatly if she did.
