Catherine Mann's Expectant Landis brother tale


cover art: Harlequin Enterprises


His Expectant Ex
by Catherine Mann
published: Harlequin/Silhouette Desire

review copy provided for me by the very lovely Joanne Rock. :) *waves*

In RITA award winning romance author Catherine Mann’s 2008 Harlequin’s Silhouette Desire release His Expectant Ex the author introduces a soon-to-be divorced couple, Marianna, and her high-powered lawyer hubby Sebastian Landis. The eve of their separation, they have a final fling, and well, having never been able to conceive before, never thought what might result from it.

So on signing the divorce papers, several weeks later, imagine Sebastian’s surprise when Marianna faints, and he finds out it’s probably due to her pregnancy. Marianna is fully willing to stay divorced, but now, Sebastian’s having second thoughts and turns his persuasive powers and charms on winning his whinny wife back. Can he?

All in all the story (part of Harlequin Desire’s “The Landis Brothers” mini-series) is sweet, and of course, steamy, and was an enjoyable quick read, perhaps some of Marianna’s whiny pining for what she couldn’t have (you’ll have to read it to see what she’s upset about) could have been toned back, but this is a variation on the secret baby theme (not a big favorite of mine, I must admit) so, it’s to be expected, I guess. All in all I think romance, and Catherine Mann fans, as will fans of the Silhouette Desire line, will enjoy it—

If you'd like to give it a try, though, it's being a harlequin, isn't available on the shelves any longer. You can find it though online at Amazon, in ebook only, from Borders.com and at the Harlequin site itself, here.
My rating for this one? I think you'll enjoy it, I did, so
