This was not my favorite book by this author, his behaviour with the heroine was despicable, he found her crying in the office, took her on a date to make the heroine's cheating boyfriend jealous, took her innocence and then ignored her as he said he would, fired her and found her a job somewhere else and when she told him she was pregnant married her, told her she couldn't follow her dream of a jewellery business, never helped her out with his friends and instead tried to mold her into somethin ...more

This was a book filled with sweet moments, angsty goodness moments, hit hero in the head moments and more. I liked this book even though at the end Alessandro was a class A jerk. The way he made up for it was a bit ridiculous but sweet. It fit with the heroine.

The heroine Lilley has had a horrible day after finding her boyfriend and flatmate in bed together. All she wants is a little peace and quiet to try and complete the work she is badly behind on. When Alessandro, the hero and owner of the company she works for, turns up he is surprised and a little pleased to find Lilley there. He has watched her around the workplace for a while, always with her head down, and he is more than a little intrigued by her. Alessandro asks Lilley to go with him to a c ...more
Just finished and my head is spinning! Tropophilia!! Just too much. Anyone not wanting trope overload must avoid this, as they're all here. Only unused tropes are "amnesia" and your're dying and I love you (although that's there too, just not for the H and h). Everything else is there. Cinderella story of a poor little rich girl with a learning difficulty, who doesn't know her beauty but has a brilliant talent, is swept away by handsome alpha male with tortuous rags to riches background (and a P ...more
What do i say about this one by the time i finished it left me so disappointed.Lilley was such TSTL doormat and that Mean Cruel Cold Male Chauvinist Pig- so so angry at him and more angry at Lilley to let him treat her in such a bad way,the story would have been much much better if the lie was out sooner followed by such a cruel reaction of that jerk then realization and rest book should have been grovelling.

But after the truth is out everything was so rushed Lilley and her father's patch up fol
There wasn't a synopsis so I copied this from Mills and Boon site

Like Cinderella at the ball…Lilley’s fairytale wish is about to be granted. She’ll swap her grey suits for a fabulous dress and killer heels, and dance the night away with the man every other woman wants…but only for one night. When the clock strikes twelve…Alessandro Caetani does not do happy-ever-afters. In fact his charm extends only as far as getting his Little Mouse secretary into bed. Lilley has never taken such a risk before
This is awesome if you're in the mood for a good sultry, easy, romantic read. I don't give 5 stars very often when it comes to M&B because usually the romance and the story seems rush. But I love this one! I love the characters, especially Lilley. I like that she's not meek (as opposed to most M&B heroine) but she's not head-strong either. She's likeable all-around and she has the same insecurity as the average person in the street. But she's tough and knows how to pick her battle, and w ...more
 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads)
Jennie Lucas is the author to reach for when you want the high drama quotient and the fairy tale vibe to your Harlequin Presents. Lilley is so starry-eyed, it will probably make a more cynical reader roll her eyes. I didn't mind it so much. I think that if I'm in the mood, it works for the story. I felt that she definitely deserved better than she got with Alessandro, but in his defense he did try to push her away initially to protect her. I didn't want her to go back to him when she has importa ...more

A Night of living dangerously is a romantic, compelling, intriguing, fun loving novel! Along with the novel the cover of the novel is beautifully stunning!

This has been the ever Mills & Boon book which I picked up due to it’s front cover as it itself tells a story! The Cover I think really is so beautiful - maybe more books in future will look like this.

When I read what the book was about I knew that this wasn’t just a book with a pretty cover, the story sounded amazing so I bought straight
I would have given it four stars until I reached the final chapter. The last chapter pulled the rating down to 3 stars because it was so utterly ridiculous. I wasn't happy what the main male character decided to do to win back the female character in this chapter. Until then I was thinking about 4 stars because although I was enjoying the emotional situation between the characters, the details of the intimate scenes and how the book flowed overall, I still thought the prince was a jerk, especial ...more
HQ.....need I say more. :P

Innocent heroine....check
Heartless Hero......check



In 7th grade I was the queen of Harlequin Presents, so when I picked up this book free at the Chicago RT convention I was delighted. The concept was classic HP with a 23 year old virgin and a 35 year old billionaire. What a disappointment!

Lilley is the classic Too Stupid to Live herione. Alessandro was just bipolar. One minute they were rolling in love and happiness, and the next minute he is refusing to let her pick out her own clothes. Everyone in this book treated Lilley like crap: her dad,
I like it! The guy has had his moments of being a jerk but I think he's done well for the most part. Lillie at 23 is obviously still trying to find her place in this world so for a while she's a bit naive but it's great to see how she finally came through and stood up for herself. There were a lot of heartwarming moments, at times I felt sad for both of them. But let me be the one to say I don't care for the Hollywoodish kiss and make up story line in the end. It made me frown with "Really!" but ...more
it was good...very good.and got me curious about the cousin.
Loved this story, and wish it were longer.

Ahoy! Me loved this kind of theme. It's also a good thing it had Paul Marron on its cover, although I think he didn't really represent Alessandro in this picture.
But anyway, I just thought that Liley could've made him 'fight' her a bit more. But then again, sometimes love made people so blind that they can't think clearly enough.
Somehow I loved the idea that Liley was rich but he didn't know it at first, especially her family background.
Marina Andreou
It was great book.And the cover of the storie match so much with the big night of the dances.The hero is a rich and famous and help the heroine we has a lot of problems and it the begining of the book find her to cry in his office.I dont like that the heroine was forgiveness her best friend we cheat with her boyfriend...there the heroine to show more strong and let a talk about two characters and not let them go.
Mel Auslan Osborne
Ok with this book I don't know if I recommend it or not. I'll just say if you read it be warned it's a you'll love it or hate it story. Lilley is a girl who doesn't fight for what she wants and Alessandro is one of the biggest AH characters I've read. I wanted to rip shreds off him a few times.

Like I said before I only cautiously recommend this book.
I loved this book! Lilley was a great heroine. She was unsure of herself at first but by the end of the book she was a strong, independent young woman. Alessandro was a typical alpha male jerk but I loved him from the beginning. Faults and all. This hp is a keeper for me.
I picked up this book because of the description on the was a little misleading, but other than that, it was an okay story. I didn't hate it, but nothing to write home about.
It was an ok book but I never felt the chemistry and connection between the characters. I enjoyed the epilogue but I wish I could care more about the hero or the heroine.
My fav from this author.
I really loved/hated the Prince. I liked the girl for her niceness and forgiveness and not being a total pushover despite the unfairness of situations.
the virginal and sweet innocent heroine, the rich entitled prince, the one weekend stand, the pregnancy....need i say more?
Judith Wright
I liked the story, but the part where he shows up in a knight and armor suit is completely ridiculous.
Is it just me or the book cover looks almost exactly like Inez Kelley's Sweet as Sin? LOL
The ending was corn central.

Jennie Lucas had a tragic beginning for any would-be writer: a very happy childhood. Her parents owned a bookstore, and she grew up surrounded by books, dreaming about faraway lands. Her mother read aloud to her in French when she was little; when she was ten, her father secretly paid her a dollar for every classic novel (Jane Eyre, War and Peace) that she read. As a chubby teenager, Jennie covere ...more
