Undone by Her Tender Touch by Maya Banks

Pippa knew the rules. Cam wasn't looking for love; he wasn't looking for a relationship. He just wanted one night of incredible sex. That's what she wanted, too. But when she discovers that she's pregnant, all of the rules are out the window. Pippa is scared: how is she going to support herself and a baby? But Cam is scared too, because he once lost the only people that were important to him. Pippa and the baby are bringing back terrible memories. Will he ruin everything by pushing her away?

It's been a long time since I've read a romance novel, particularly a Harlequin Desire. Undone by Her Tender Touch wasted no time in getting to a racy sex scene (there was one in the first thirty pages of the book, and it was by no means the only one). There are a lot of ideas about sex, gender, and relationships to explore in this book. Cam's idea for solving most things is to throw money at things, and it's very interesting to see when and where Pippa accepts that as a solution. There are some nice twists and roadblocks on the way to true love, and the characters are grounded in ways that make their actions understandable.  In Hollywood terms, it's a bit Sex and the City-meets-Bridesmaids-meets-Knocked Up, and if you like reading romance stories about power, money, and pregnancy, give this one a try.
