Alright, alright. Laugh away. After a book slump I go back to Harlequin. People would think that would be begging for more of a slump, but I actually feel sad about the bad rep that Harlequin has. Yes, they factory pump out more silly romance ditties than oreo pumps out delicious cream filled goodies...but they actually are more often than not good! Like the snack mentioned above they are sugary, sweet, and exactly what you'd expect, but also are addicting and leave you feeling satisfied.

What a jerk.

Leon is not really all that mean, cruel or arm-twisting ass-hatty of a hero; he is simply an out and out jerk. A vagina tease perchance.

Kayla our poor little heroine with a spine of tin is rebounding on a Greek holiday from her fiancee who not only cheated on her, but kept all her wedding plans intact with the obvious exception of her. She sees a handsome Greek guy and, to make a long story short, crushes on him. She can't stand corporate types as her deadbeat dad and fiancee were b

I didn't care for this one too much. It felt like something was missing to me but I couldn't pinpoint what exactly was missing. The ending was okay.

Although Harlequin has branched out into numerous genres these days, the Greek billionaire tycoon hero is still popular. I can't read too many of these in a row before I started being annoyed by the formulaic style, but once in a while, when I'm in the mood for a quick read, this type of hero fits the bill. No complaints about Leonidas, the uber alpha male - cold, cunning, ruthless, incredibly successful, apparently heartless, just waiting for the right woman to release his softer feelings. I wa ...more

This book was a relatively quick read that was hard to put down. I put it down only to sleep a few hours and then picked it back up again to finish it. There were a lots of twists and turns to the point where I honestly wasn't sure what was going to happen next and if we would get the happily ever after you come to expect from Harlequin novels. In this book, both of the main characters have to learn to trust one another and that is hard to do with a person you don't know and you find out somethi ...more

I enjoyed reading A Greek Escape. Kayla was jilted. She goes to a Greek Island to a friends place to get away. Leonidas owns a place there. He thinks Kayla is with the press. He is there to get away also. Leonidas always wanted to paint when he was young. His father said it was a disgrace to paint. A bad storm, not liking each other, but in the end they end up together. I liked Leonidas in the story.

leo was cool, sweet and hot..i loved him, but kayla....i was like bitc* please! she non stop compares leo with her father, ex-boyfriend and that's annoying a it's the only reason why i gave 2.5 stars for this book. without that i would give 5star, so imagine how many times she said that all rich men are like her father especially leonidas!

Following in her father's footsteps, Elizabeth Power wanted to be a writer from a very early age. Once she realised that copying Rupert Bear stories word for word from her albums wasn't really the thing to do, she was on her way!

By the age of fourteen, Elizabeth had produced her first full-length novel—alas! never published—and by the age of fifteen her teenage years meant life was so full that al
