4.5 stars! Absolutely amazing! What an emotional, tear at your heart strings story! Morgan Copeland is in desperate need of financial (and not only) help and the only one who can provide that is her estranged husband Drakon Xanthis. She also is in desperate need of a divorce but Drakon refuses to sign the papers even though it's been 5 years since they've seen each other. When the heroine arrives in her husband's Villa not only he gives her the money she needs but he is also willing to give her ...more
I wasn't as mesmerized by this story as other readers. Jane Porter did a wonderful job in writing a very disturbing, complex relationship. A relationship interwoven with lust, hurt and betrayal. But just like her other work, she left me hanging, wanting so much more.

I didn't believe that the issues between the couple were really resolved outside the bedroom. Though OW got her walking papers, it was such a trivial aspect to the overall story. Yet, the author made it a turning point for the coupl
Uno de los mejores Harlequin que tuve la suerte de leer. Una novela atípica y atrapante al extremo. A mí me pareció hermosa y muy real, me hizo recordar a las antiguas novelas, esas que con un argumento simple y no tan rebuscado hacían que mi imaginación volara y deseara intensamente volver a tener un tiempo libre para reencontrarme con los personajes. Flawless, pero me dejó con muchísimas ganas de seguir leyendo sobre Drakon y Morgan.

2.5 stars for The Fallen Greek Bride

This was a real troublesome marriage and I just could not see what the author wanted us to believe that this couple would overcome their many issues. What I could see was the lead female character ending up back in a mental institute within months and losing complete control of her reality.

3.5 stars for At the Greek Boss Bidding

A better executed plot. This was the second story I have read by this author. It just seems she does better when she doesn't add too m

This should have been an intense read. As a couple, Morgan and Drakon have lots of issues to address. As individuals, they have emotional and psychological issues by the bucketload . But I couldn't relate to them or their actions, I couldn't feel their love. And the book fell flat.

I know picking up a "Presents Book" that I am going to enjoy it and that there will be a great escape to a far away land with a handsome hero. Since it was a Jane Porter, it was like an extra special treat, and then to add one of her reader favorites with it. Well it was like a hot fudge sundae with a cherry on top!

The Fallen Greek Bride was an edgier Jane Porter, definitely a little sexier. I was pleasantly surprised! I can only hope this will be a series as it did leave me wanting more as ther
This book piqued my interest and I just had to read it to see what this was all about.

Morgan and Drakon had lot of issues. Drakon, I could understand. How he had to emotionally shut himself off. That was how he had been conditioned since childhood. It was his survival strategy. He wasn't much of a talker but he definitely had feelings and the only way he could communicate, express his feelings for Morgan was physically.

Morgan, on the other hand a lot of issues. She could not accept her sensual

I've read Jane's other books and had a great time reading them but this book is quite disappointing. I am a little confused about the problem with their marriage-- who's needy and who's withdrawn and who's cold and who did what first but apparently they were in love. One moment Drakon realized his shortcomings but only to ask her again why she left! What the..!!! I was frowning more as I progress thru the story, at times would say "huh?"
Mar 09, 2013 Rhonda rated it really liked it
A deep and complex love shared by two people who lacked communication. A compelling story that keeps you turning pages and wanting more. I can't wait for the next book to find out what happens to Morgan's father and how Morgan and Drakon strengthen their marriage. I disliked Bronwyn from beginning...having jealous tendencies I could totally relate to Morgan's extreme dislike/jealousy.
The book had just enough spice to make it yummy! (I won this book and a few others in a Jane Porter give away)

This was a super hot story for Presents! I found myself liking Drakon more than Morgan, but both were good characters (though at one point he realizes certain things, yet continues to act the same as he has in the past for a while longer...wish his revelation would have led more directly to some kind of change). While they both were flawed and had issues that could still pose trouble for their relationship, by the end you believe that they are deeply in love and will work harder at it this time. ...more

Jane Porter is an awesome author. I've read much of her work and was overall happy with The Fallen Greek Bride. It was very much a Presents book, with a mega-rich alpha hero and (recently) destitute/desperate heroine storyline.
I enjoyed the way Morgan and Drakon overcame their extreme lack of communication issues and pulled through for each other in the end.

However, I disliked the bdsm references despite their mildness, especially for a Presents book. I kept skipping over them. I did not want t
Last night I finished reading the first story The Fallen Greek Bride and it was a good book but I did have some problems with it.
I didn't really feel that the problems between Morgan and Drakon were really solved and I didn't like how Drakon didn't tell Morgan about his childhood and how hard it is for him to share his emotions because of his mom.

I will read the other books in the series but I do hope that they'll be better. 3.5 stars

I'll read the second story At the Greek Boss's Bidding which

A bit over the top fairy tale romance but I enjoyed it. The sex part initially was a bit like too much. Get going with story :) I want romance not semi porn. The heroine is so weak a character she runs away from husband breaks down gets to mental hospital. The hero uncommunicative but throws money around left right centre for the money hungry cheat of his womans father. The part following this gets better. The way the hero stands up for her. The making up part is all good. If it weren't for the ...more

The Fallen Greek Bride by Jane Porter is a great very easy to read story. It's the first in a trilogy about the "The Disgraced Coplands". It's a page turner and I for one cant wait to read more about the Coplands.
I love reading Jane Porters Harlequin Presents and this on is no exception. Its a big romantic story with smocking hot scenes and a great story line. Great characters.

This book left me totally confused at the end of it, and given I enjoy Mills & Boon romances for their simplicity that's not really a good thing. First of all, I wasn't that keen on the relationship between Morgan and Drakon. It starts off being confrontational and ends up being confrontational, to the point why I didn't actually understand why they were together in the first place. Secondly, while I appreciate that this story is one in a series about the Copeland family, I would've liked a ...more

I thought it was Awesome getting two books for the price of one. I’m going to review the books separately.

The fallen Greek Bride: In this story Drakon, and Morgan were in love. They had married, and had an almost magical honeymoon. After the honeymoon ended, is when things feel apart. The two had a love that was so strong, that it scared them. They stopped talking to one another. Morgan left, and asked for a divorce. Drakon wouldn’t give her one, until they could sit down and talk. He didn’t kno

The first part of the book is the story of Morgan and Drakon. She goes to him for help when she knows no other can help her. She hasn't seen him in five long years, since she left him early within their marriage. Drakon wants to keep his wife, and refuses to sign the divorce papers she had him served with. He offers to help her with her problem and hopes to get to the reason why she left, which he still doesn't know.
The second part of the book is the story of Elizabeth and Kristian. He has been
Impressive, mind blowing and totally intense, this book is one of the best books I've read from this author. The chemistry between hero and heroine was perfect and it has the most genuine sex scene I've ever read in HP.

So it's Harlequin, it's Jane Porter, it's good. No surprises just a solid Harlequin set of stories. Do I like Jane's other books better (The Good Wife, The Good Daughter, Flirting with Forty etc.)? Yes. But when you want a traditional Harlequin you could most definately do worse than Jane.

I can't read Jane's books fast enough! I know these harlequin romances have a HEA but these stories are too cute and sweet. I'm a sucker for a good romance and Jane's books always deliver.
