Title: The Billionaire's Pregnant Mistress
Author: Lucy Monroe
Source: Barnes and Noble Nook Book
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!
Its the classic love story:
Girl lives in sin with boy
Girl gets pregnant by boy
Girl realizes she loves boy
Boy leaves girl to marry acceptable girl
Boy regrets decision.
When Xandra Fortune finds out that she is pregnant and the father of the baby went and got engaged to what he claims to be the "right sort" of girl, she decides it is time to go back to being Alexandra Dupree and go home to her mother, who believes she is ruining the family, and her sister.
Living the life of "Xandra Fortune" had been great when she could be a fashion model in France but with a child on the way and being a single parent there would be no way to continue her lifestyle. Plus her family, who she got the job for to begin with did not need her assistance as much.
By the time that Dimitri realized the mistake he had made, "Xandra" was gone from the apartment he had removed her from and from the city. The only thing Private Detectives could find on "Xandra Fortune" was that she had her belongings shipped to New York.
When they end up at the same party in New York will the sparks fly or will the fact that Alexandra believes Dimitri to be married and can not trust him keep them apart.
Mostly this is like all Harlequin Romance stories and something I love. A first time together, something that tears them apart and then a happily ever after. Not to say that they are all the same, that little bit of info that they will get back together is something to make you pull through that hate that they may or may not feel toward each other. And I love them for those moments where they do not get along. Lucy Monroe did a good job on this short and sweet Harlequin getting me interested. There is constantly a question to find the answer too: Did he get married? What did he promise his Grandfather?
MY RATING: B-
