Undone by Her Tender Touch

Undone by Her Tender Touch is the newest Harlequin Desire release from Maya Banks and the 4th book in her Pregnancy & Passion series. From the back cover.~

Just one night? Yeah, right. Pippa Laingley should have known better. When an unplanned evening of passion with Cameron Hollingsworth results in unplanned pregnancy, she's at a crossroads. She knew going in that the enigmatic entrepreneur had built a fortress around his feelings. What she's just discovered is that he's loved and lost before—wife and child. Tragically.

Now Cam stands to lose it all again. If he lets Pippa get too close. If he pushes her away with loveless arrangements of financial support. Either way, he's doomed…unless he can let himself love again.

I was able to get an early copy from NetGalley of Undone by Her Tender Touch. I was so excited as I’m a huge Maya Banks fan. I really enjoyed the other books in this series and was glad to see Pippa was the heroine in this book.

I love that Pippa is such a strong woman. She is ready to start her own business and doesn’t plan to change those plans just because she finds out her one night with Cameron resulted in them having a baby.  Pippa is lucky to have some wonderful friends in her life as she deals with an unplanned pregnancy and Cam’s strange behavior. Of course neither Pippa or Cam can seem to keep their hands off one another if they are in the same room. Banks gives her readers lots of steamy and sexy scenes between Cam and Pippa.

I will say that Cam really could be a bit of a tool at times. While he is one of the sexiest men I’ve read about, he also is letting his past keep him from having happiness in the future. After the death of his wife and son, Cam pretty much locks himself away from feeling again. However, Pippa isn’t willing to settle for less than everything from Cam. Loved watching Cam finally figure out his true feelings for Pippa and their unborn child.

The official release date for Undone by Her Tender Touch was May 1, 2012. Although this book is the 4th in the series, I think it stands alone pretty well. I also loved we got to spend time with the couples from the first 3 books. Banks gives her long time fans and new readers a fabulous story filled with sexiness, laughter, and even a few tears (at least from me).
