Sensual and fast-paced. . .a Presents holiday feast of joy!
Highly recommended! 4 1/2 Stars - The Romance Readers Connection
Lucy Monroe delivers yet another emotionally heart wrenching story.
This book cements a place for this author on my favorite’s list
and ensures that if Lucy Monroe writes it, I’m going to read it.
5 Stars - FAR
Lucy Monroe's latest is a highly charged romance - both emotionally and sexually. The chemistry between Alexandra and Dimitri is combustible with lots of intense emotions.
4 Stars - Romantic Times
Lucy Monroe’s characters are red hot and emotional, and underneath there is a lot of love and stability. I just cherish her love stories. They are told from the heart. -
Reader To Reader Reviews
The tumultuous emotions the characters go through, as well as the reader, hit high and low to everything that we as humans believe, value and respect. Dimitri and Xandra touch readers to the core with their misgivings, mistrust and everything that they are. True heart in romance comes from within and Ms. Monroe opens herself up to readers in her writing, which usually makes for a lot of tears and big smiles.
- The Road to Romance
Avid Harlequin Presents readers are sure
to agree, Ms. Monroe has delivered a romance that resonates with
deep gut-wrenching emotion and sports well-developed,
three-dimensional characters who will be remembered well into the
future. For a sexy story that sizzles with wicked sensuality and
realistic characters, be sure you pick up "The Billionaire's
Pregnant Mistress"! Bravo, Ms. Monroe, for a job well
done! ~ The
A compelling story of love and
betrayal, with incredible lead characters in it's feisty,
strong-willed heroine Alexandra, and Dimitri, a typically alpha
Greek hero. Ms Monroe's writing kept me glued to this book;
I just could not put it down. I could not wait to find out what
would happen next. Even with only two books under her belt, she
has a definite way with love scenes; I will only say, check out
the shower scene!
This is the second book that I have read by Lucy Monroe and all I
can say is I LOVE LUCY MONROE!! I read "The Billionaire's
in about three hours. I seriously could not put this book down.
Lucy Monroe has created another to-die-for
alpha Greek hero! Although Dimitri may have seemed cruel and
callous when he rejected Xandra's claim that she was pregnant with
his child, he demonstrated unexpected depths of emotion and
compassion towards Xandra in his unwavering search for her.
Alexandra is strong and independent. She is perfectly capable of
standing up to Dimitri and she is fiercely protective of the child
she will bear. An excellent book!

other AUTHORS and BOOKSELLERS are saying...
re-read The Billionaire's Pregnant Mistress tonight. And even
though I knew the story, it was as if I was reading something
completely new. It was a roller-coaster ride through an amazing
love story, and I couldn't put it down. I loved the characters
and the ‘heck’ you put them through <g>, to reach their
completely believable happy ever after. I am in awe of your
talent and skill.” ~ Kati Dougherty Carthum, Science Fiction &
READERS are saying...
"Just finished Lucy's book - about Demitri and Xandra. Absolutely Loved it! And Lucy, would you write a little faster please so I can get my "Lucy Fix" at least once a month. (g)" ~ Judy S
"Wow, Wow, Wow. It moved my heart......I loved it! I couldn't put it down and read until late last night. Thanks for the wonderful
story." ~ Marilyn
"Lucy, I bought your book today. I had to stop on page 85 so I could pick up my kids from school. You
know, I am reaching a point where I am coming to dread reading one of your books. I can usually read
one and think "good book" and put it down and pick up another book and get into it. I read so darn
many in one week that I usually have to write down the ones I've read. Not yours. Nuh uh. I have
already cried once and gotten really mad while reading this book. Not fair. I thought about the story as I
was walking to the school and while walking back. Its excellent. I should be getting some housework
done, but I'm gonna finish the book instead. This is a really terrific book. ... I just got done page 114.
I'm crying again. Darn you. ... It was beautiful. That's all I can say." ~ Pat
"Lucy, "The Billionaire's Pregnant Mistress" is the best book from Harlequin Presents that I have read
in the past year. It's emotional and realistic, although I thought that the hero should have to work
harder to track down the heroine for his despicable treatment of her but it was a very emotionally
satisfying tale. Thank you! I look forward to more stories from you." ~ Katherine
"Oh, Lucy, another keeper! One of my favorite things about your writing is how you always manage to
make a traditional love story sound so original. Instead of relying on the same old methods, you face
those obstacles head on and create more valid ones. Your females could not be considered TSTL (too
stupid to live) because they speak their own minds and live their lives as strong, independent women -
I love that! No weeping, fainting Barbie dolls in your books :) And the heroes may be alpha, but they
are not cruel or heartless but rather strong and passionate and very irresistible." ~ Stacy
"I just adored the book. Dimitri was so alpha but still had that tender side. Alexandra was the perfect match for him, very strong willed and didn't let Dimitri walk all over her... They both had their reasons for their actions and it made them who they were. It was very steamy too. Awesome job." ~ Judy F
"Lucy, I got my December Presents in
the mail today. Present subscriptions always run early! I just
finished The Billionaire's Pregnant Mistress and it was great!! Definitely
for my keeper shelf. I don't keep all my Presents (I usually trade
them at the trade store) but this one was great!! Just thought I'd
let you know how much I enjoyed it! :)" ~ Melissa
"I just want to let you know that when I purchased The
Billionaire's Pregnant Mistress that I was so touched by it and that it is one book I will keep forever, I have read it many times over and over, never being able to put it down till I have
fished reading it. I have 3 favourite authors and you are one of them being able to touch the reader.
Looking forward to read any more books soon." ~ your fan Carol in Australia
"Only yesterday have I come across your
book "The Billionnaire's Pregnant Mistress"!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was sooooooooooooooo good, I finished it the same
day!!!!!!!!! I just called a buddy to tell her to look out
for you books from now on, as you have just been added to my list
of favourites, like Anne Mather and Penny Jordan, Michalle Reid,
Jacqueline Baird and Lynne Graham, I was amazed that a
"new" M&B writer has managed to capture the very
essence of the M&B senarios and was totally stumped by the
calibre of your writing!!! I like your Alpha male and independant
women story!!!" ~ Michelle in South Africa
Lucy! I just had to write
and tell you how much I LOVED ‘The Billionaire's Pregnant
Mistress’ - it was fabulous. It was so great that I bought it at 5.30pm yesterday and had it read by 9pm at night! I really loved it. Alexandra was a great match for Dimitri
and he sounds gorgeous - I think I fell in love with him (but sssshhh!
Don't tell my boyfriend!!! <G>). I
loved the way you used his point of you throughout the book - it
really made it easier for me to understand his feelings and why he was
acting as he was. <snip
- spoiler> It was a fantastic book Lucy and I'll
definitely be re-reading it in the future. I think it will be much
like those classics by Michelle Reid and Lynne Graham that you just
have to keep going back to time and again to relive the emotions of
reading it the 1st time. Thanks
for anther great book, Lucy - I'll definitely be looking for your next
one....and the one after that!” ~ Katie in the UK
“Lucy - After reading
your first book and loving it, I didn't want to wait until The
Billionaire's Pregnant Mistress was released in the
to buy it, so I ordered it from a bookstore in
. The postage cost more than the book, but it was worth it. When
the book arrived the other day, I had just started reading a new
book; but I put that book aside and read yours instead. And it was
worth it for Xandra/Alexandra's and Dimitri's story was so
beautiful. Loved it! It's a keeper. I loved your first two
books and looking forward to reading more.” ~ Rhye in the USA

"Lucy, your The
Billionaire's Pregnant Mistress was one of my holiday reads while we
went camping in January. I have this gorgeous photo of a sparrow that
came and hopped up on my knee and then hopped up onto the book. I'm
assuming she enjoyed the story as much as I did! We have very discerning
sparrows here in New Zealand you know, LOL!" ~ Yvonne in New
Yvonne graciously shared her picture with me when I
asked. Isn't the sparrow darling?
