 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads)
This is classic Lynne Graham. The heroine is sweet and downtrodden, desperately in love with the hero. The hero had some unexpected depth. He's a tycoon, but has angst from the loss of his wife. It seems like Leo used and dumped her, but he was actually in love with her as well, although he felt guilty that she was barely of age. When they meet again, Angie doesn't want to be bothered with this man who dumped her so callously. She doesn't think he would care that she had his child, especially wh ...more
Was a top harlequin book, definitely in the top ten!

Sometimes with harlequin you get the boring cliché's that make no sense and the hero is brutally horrible to the heroine in a really over the top way but this read was not like that at all. Sure the heroine did get pregnant but that was the only cliché. There were many surprises, and the secondary characters like grumpy old Wallice and Drew is what made is five-star read.

Love reading harlequin, if you are looking for a cosy read with not the an
Overworked & underpaid nanny is shocked that Hero, who she's been in love with since childhood, found her since the 2 yrs she left his dad's estate. Because of her resistance, Hero pressures her to attend to his dad's request that she & her young son see him. Her visit to his dad's estate yields more surprises. Hero's brother who Hero thinks is the father of heroine's son also shows up & the lies of the past confront everyone involved.

The Harlequin Secret Baby trope at it's worst (or best? Guess it depends on your tastes). Full of artificial drama and stupid misunderstandings and very little else.

The "heroine" is a doormat with apparently no pride, willing to lie down and get kicked repeatedly "for the good of her son". No, what's good for your son would be to sit up and not be treated like crap by absolutely everyone because it sets a truly horrible precedent for him to emulate. She stayed as an au pair/ housekeeper on basi
Butler's daughter Angie and widower tycoon Leo had one night together but Leo's evil cousin makes Leo believe he and Angie slept together and the child she is waiting is his. Angie is accused of theft, flees the house, has her baby and 3 years later Leo is back to support her and Jake even though he has no idea he is his son.

Leo and Angie were a great couple and I have a soft spot for a secret child plot so I enjoyed this very much. Angie was immature but a sweetheart, Leo alpha but also vulner
This novel bothered me, at times I loved it and at other times it was so damn boring! But the parts that were great, were really great, like SUPER great whereas the parts that were boring were far and few.
I enjoyed getting to know Angie and her hot headed alpha Greek Leo. With the mix of a child he thought was his cousin's thanks to said cousins lies you have a wonderful story.
A Christmas romance with familiar Harlequin tropes, but light and enjoyable for the holidays.
Can't believe I found an LG I hadn't read.
