Meet the Author

Award-winning and bestselling author Lucy Monroe lives in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest, surrounded by a plethora of pets and children (her own, the neighbors, her sisters...). She finds inspiration for her stories everywhere as she is an avid people-watcher. So much so that she disconcerted her husband upon first meeting him when she watched the other dancers as much as she watched him. He thought she wasn't interested...silly man.

She believes there is no stronger emotion than love; that it truly can overcome pain, past rejection and the challenge of finding happiness despite the hardest things life has to offer. She believes in the victorious conclusions found in today's romance. To her, the passionately sensual romance novel is a beautiful expression of the reality of love, packaged in a fantasy readers can enjoy.

When she's not writing, Lucy likes to read--big surprise, that. She can't tell you the latest show going on television, but she loves romantic movies, action adventure and the theater. She adores her family, and is a smatterer when it comes to hobbies...a little of this, a little of that.

Since selling her first book to the Harlequin Presents line in September of 2002, she has sold more than thirty books to three publishers and shows no signs of slowing down in the near future.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. My preference in romance novels runs to alpha males and demure (virginal) heroines who have the fortitude of inner strength. If you prefer overtly strong, brash women and beta male leads, this may not be your cup of tea. I¿ll not summarize the plot as that is done in the introduction; however, I¿ll say that, given the confines of formulaic romance (which I enjoy), this story felt fresh. The love scenes were plenty steamy without getting vulgar, and the emotion between the characters was organic and real. I tend to like stories where the alpha male lead hurts (emotionally) the female lead in some way and has to make amends (groveling is acceptable). I particularly liked how the characters fought for their marriage and their family. Altogether, a satisfying read. A CAVEAT: I find a review more helpful if I know the bent of the reviewer, so I have included my personal preferences here. Too often I have bought a book on multiple good reviews only to discover that the story was not MY cup of tea, although I could recognize how it would appeal to others. I¿m hoping that by providing my own ¿bent,¿ this review will be more helpful to others .

Eden Kouros was about to end her marriage to her husband, Aristide, when a serious car accident left him in a coma. She had become increasingly jealous of the time and attention Aristide had been devoting to his work at her expense, particularly the time he spent with his personal assistant, Kassandra. Eden still loves Aristide, but she had reached the end of her patience and told him so, right before the crash. But there's something she didn't tell Aristide - she's pregnant with their second child. ---- Aristide doesn't remember anything about Eden. Not their courtship, not their wedding, and not their marriage. He's been relying on information from his personal assistant, and Kassandra hasn't painted a very favorable picture of Eden. She has led him to believe that Eden trapped him into marriage when she became pregnant with their son, Theo. Aristide is a wealthy man, and he believes Eden only married him for his wealth and prestige. ---- In spite of everything, Eden truly loves Aristide and doesn't want to lose him. She plans to keep her new pregnancy a secret from him until things are resolved one way or another. He already believes she used a pregnancy to trap him into marriage and there's no way she'll let him accuse her of using her unborn child as an excuse to reconcile. If there is any hope of saving their marriage, it must be because Aristide loves and trusts Eden. Will Aristide ever remember why he fell in love with Eden in the first place? Will he be swayed by Kassandra's deceitful ways, or will he trust the evidence of his own eyes, mind and heart? ---- Aristide Kouros is gorgeous and sexy a wealthy Greek business tycoon who still holds love and family in high esteem. I hoped all of the obstacles in his path wouldn't prevent him from recognizing Eden's true nature and his feelings for her. I admired the way Eden refused to use her pregnancy to sway Aristide's decision. She stuck to her principles and refused to give in when Aristide wouldn't believe her complaints about Kassandra's devious behavior. I hoped Kassandra would get her due but most of all, I hoped Eden and Aristide would rediscover the love that drew them together in the first place. THE GREEK'S CHRISTMAS BABY is another first-rate story from Lucy Monroe!

Aristide Kouros is not only an alpha male but a GREEK alpha male. He is handsome, rich, powerful and very possessive over what is his. Normally his wife Eden does not have a problem with that, but after a car accident leaves him with selective amnesia and he no longer remembers his wife . . . well a lot of problems arise. In true Lucy Monroe fashion, I fell in love with Aristide while wanting to wring his stubborn, Greek, alpha neck. If you like your books with a female villain you absolutely must read this book. I don¿t believe I¿ve met a better one than Ms. Monroe has created in this book. She also creates a whole family where honor, integrity and love are very much the cornerstone. Give yourself a holiday gift with The Greek¿s Christmas Baby.

Love it! Just one thing: What the heck are the names of Sebastian and Rachel's children? This is the second book with these two and it drives me nuts their children have no names!

This was a good book that I would recommend. Unlike so many, this heroine has some courage to stand up for herself and didn't plan the doormat to the hero. It is about 133 pages long, just a nice read for an evening of relaxing and one that I saved to enjoy reading again.
