I grew up reading Harlequin Presents, and I still think these small books offer an amazing read. A good HP is like a small firework, with the couple shooting sparks in all directions. It’ll be no surprise to learn that there is yet another unborn baby in Abby Green’s The French Tycoon’s Pregnant Mistress. Irish TV reporter Alana Cusack gets involved with a French banker, Pascal Lévêque, and thereafter quickly — well, the title is something of a giveaway. (I think it’s fair to say that heroines in HPs are particularly fertile.) When Alana loses her job, Pascal whisks her off to his penthouse in Paris. Even though the two of them practically burn up the bed, they have multiple reasons to mistrust each other, and Alana finally decides she simply cannot trust a French playboy. So she says good-bye and returns to her job in England. The small canvas of an HP actually encourages startling originality: the ending of this book is particularly enjoyable.
