Pas de robe blanche pour la mariée
Jessica pousse un soupir: à quoi bon les détromper...
Jusqu'au jour où surgit dans sa vie Nikolas Constantinos. Le célèbre milliardaire grec se laissera-t-il lui aussi abuser par la rumeur? Pour l'ho...more
For someone who usually loves Linda Howard, this was a major disappointment!
The 2 main characters of Nikolas and Jessica were absolutely awful !!
Nothing to endear them to me at all.
Both was annoying, jumping to conclusions...believing everything the Press write...I mean really?
He was an obnoxious, control freak who wouldnt take no for an answer. She panicked at every touch and kiss and went further EUGH! Yet supposedly she was in love with him. Was madness!
I think I...more
Nikolas, the "hero" is so controlling, emotionally abusive and is just an awful, awful man. He kisses another woman (he goes to this woman with sex in mind but they were interrupted so it didn't go any further) and accused Jessica of being at fault! He says that if only she would stop playing games and sleep with him then he wouldn't have to get sex somewhere else.
There were parts that I was really miserable together with Jessica, especially on the scene where Nikolas told her that she isn't the type of woman he'll marry.
On the other hand, I got irritated with Jessica's fidgeting, and fear, and just plain, cowardice.
There were parts that I really liked, because they made me feel the pain, rejection an...more

A search for Linda Howard's booklist revealed many of her earliest works that I hadn't read. So, a challenge for me - to find and read all those early works. Let me go on record now saying that this author has improved mightily from her first books!
Now I am aware of how those first "hot" romances from the 80's are way out of line with early 21st century sensibilities. But, when I'm re-reading books from that time by my favorite authors, I...more
From the minute Nikolas meets Jessica, he is rude and acts outrageously disgusting toward her. He wants her to sell him her shares...more
Ella es tonta hasta decir basta, y él es un machista con letras enormes. La trata como a un trapo usado, y ella le deja, pese a las rabietas. A él podríamos tirarlo de cabeza a un pozo (seco), que no se perdería nada importante.
No parece un libro escrito por Linda Howard TT_TT
+ There were a couple of good scenes (for example Jessica's and Niko's first meeting), which were fun to read and which I enjoyed.
+ At the beginning of the story Jessica was interesting survivor, someone I could have/would have respected. I liked her individualism and strong backbone.
+ Ending scene was good, it made the whole story feel better. It...more
Aku baca ini udah bertahun-tahun lalu. Lagi iseng browse buku-bukunya LH, kok judulnya terasa familiar. Dan oh, ternyata aku pernah baca and I didn't like it. At all.
Kok bisa, kok bisa, kok bisa, itu terus yang ada di pikiranku pas baca.
Kok bisa heroine-nya jatuh cinta sih kalo cara hero-nya gitu?
Jujur, gara-gara baca buku ini aku jadi ilfil berat novel2x yang hero-nya cowok-cowok Yunani....more

แต่!...ตอนจบของเรื่องทำให้โดนหักไปอีก 1 ดาว ...แค่เพราะพระเอกพูดว่าเขา"รัก"เธอ มันไม่ได้ทำให้นิสัยการชอบครอบงำของเขาเปลี่ยนไปได้หรอกนะ...more
the girl, i love her at first. but then, she just turns into somekind of spoiled brat. she looks on the world with rose-colored glasses, and pouts when the reality isn't the way she likes them to be. a little spineless to in several scene.
the man, one uber-alpha male that developed an spoiled kid persona too. if he wants something, he wants something. and if the object of his des...more
La mujer tiene complejo de felpa, su comportamiento es totalmente caotico y poco logico, y para variar la quimica entre ambos es nula
ahhhggg tengo que leer algo mas para quitarme el mal sabor que me quedo de leer esta cosa
The hero steamrolls over the heroine throughout the book - more so (and more insensitively) than Howard's usual works; and there's only so much you can take before you start to wonder how on earth the heroine can even forgive him after that.
