 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads)
The Greek Tycoon's Virgin Wife starts out with a hero who has decided he's ready to settle down and get married. The perfect candidate is Ilana Girard, only she's not too eager to be any man's bride. Two years ago, she called off her wedding the day before the event. Since then, she's been called the Ice Maiden by society. She's a busy and successful fashion designer who travels in the same high society circles as Xandro due to her aristocratic parents. Ilana has some very good reasons to avoid ...more

Pretty badly written, for example: "She turned to look at him. 'I love you,' she said gently.'So much.' 'Its reciprocal.'" he answers.
Its 'reciprocal'??? WTF, is it the most romantic thing he could come up with?
Whenever something romantic happens, the author goes into auto-repeat: "How much time has passed, minutes, hours?" This happens 10-20 times, every kiss basically...
Heroine endlessly vacillates between being a decisive professional woman (though she lets a designer dress get away without

An enjoyable quick read. However, I do find that Helen Bianchin tends to write the same story over and over again, never trying to break out of the mold. Her stories are about beautiful career minded heroines, usually in the fashion industry, who meet up with wonderful Australian heroes that are wealthy, and of Mediterranean descent. Throw in a vicious ex that hounds the heroine, a vicious OW, a truly loving mother and voila the story.

This one was a little more enjoyable than the others, so I wo

4 1/2 Stars! ~ If you love reading a romance where the hero patiently encourages the heroine to get close and a relationship builds more slowly, then you'll be hooked on Xandro and Ilana's story. Xandro has had his eye on Ilana for awhile and when he learns that she's being stalked, he jumps right in as her protector. Unlike, Ms. Bianchin's earlier Presents, in this one, we do get to read the hero's point of view and that makes this lovestory one well worth reading again and again.

Why to people read this type of crap ninety percent of the time couples usually have a wrecked relationship.So this is a bunch of fictional crap.I would deem vampires more possible than a relationship like this were your truly bonded.
Sincere

Alexandro is greek tycoon. He grow up without love and attention from his father, mother (or his stepmother) so he doesn't believed in love. He just wants woman who can be his wife and be mother to his child .... absolutely without love. And his eyes land on Ilana, she was very sophisticate, good in socialize and has impeccable background, that made her be his suitable wife. Despite her famous reputation that she quite aloof with men. So He made his move...but Ilana tries so hard to not be near

Loved it. Thought this was the story I was re-reading when I read The Andreou Marriage Arrangement earlier this week because both stories are very similar. And I just enjoyed both very much. Just hit my mood right to have a strong Greek man in Australia loving and protecting his woman (whether she wanted or felt like she deserved that protection or not).

As is typical in Helen Bianchin books, she overuses particular words. In this book, I saw the words "capacious" and "evocative" too many times.

I always enjoy Helen Bianchin's stories and this was no exception. The women have their own personalities and the men are definitely alpha male heroes who don't take no for an answer. For some reason whenever the couple were kissing the heroine, Ilana, kept focusing on how long these acts were. At first it was cute because she was obviously getting lost in the moment, but as the story went on those same exact thoughts kept occurring and for a story that is only 180-ish pages it got to be rather ...more

awful one ! i did not get into the story at all. xandro and ilana had no chemistry. ilana was actually a cold fish, focused only on her career. yes her past perhaps explained it but she did not let go at all. this one was no gud !i do not recommend it. dats definitely helen bianchin at her worst
