Undone by Her Tender Touch - Maya Banks (HD #2155 - May 2012)

Series: Pregnancy and Passion (Book 4) 

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.

Wow - just wow.  I had a feeling Cam's story was going to be pretty incredible and I was right.  I could see in the previous books that he was pretty closed off/cynical.  When this one started out with him lusting after Pippa I had a feeling it was going to be intense.  When he started out their night with the statement that it would be one night only, no contact after, etc, I could see he was setting himself up for the fall.  Pippa started out saying he should get over himself, that's all she wanted too, but she knew she could easily fall in love with him.  When she ended up pregnant, it terrified Cam - he'd already lost a wife and child and couldn't face it again.  Cam spent the book fighting his feelings.  One day he'd be kind and friendly and the next he'd backed off and was cold and forbidding.  Pippa knew pretty quickly that she'd fallen in love with Cam.  She couldn't understand why he acted the way he did.  Once she found out, she understood, but made it clear that he had a decision to make.  There were several places that brought me to tears, but the final confrontation and follow-on had the tears flowing so bad I could hardly read.  This was absolutely the best of Maya Banks' books I have read so far.
