There was nothing remotely wrong with this book and maybe that was my problem. It seemed boring, characters are good, no major conflict, everything was perfect. Hero was great despite being rich, heroine was helpful and honest and all of it bored me.

Ok read. Didn't care a wealthy powerful HP hero having to take a train. I expect HP heroes to have their own airplanes. It's part of the HP fantasy deal.

Loving daughter for a father who's on the verge of losing everything. Coincidence that she meets someone, who becomes the love of her life, on a train to London . They seemed to fall in love and become engaged to early and quickly.

I thought it well written and entertaining, once in to the book it guided me in to a world where it was just the book. It caught my attention and it stuck with me.

I really enjoyed this book, more than I thought I would, so that was a pleasant surprise when reading along. From the blurb on the back of this book I was expecting the usual tale of someone blackmailed into a relationship/marriage on pain of destitution and actually this book wasn't anything like that at all. Sure, the method of the two main characters, Ludo and Natalie, wasn't conventional, but at the same time there isn't that uneasy edge that comes from a domineering man buying a wife etc. E ...more

In Petrakis’s Power by Maggie Cox, Natalie is on her way to London to see her father, after his anxious request for her to meet with him. She has no idea why he wants to see her so desperately, but her mind is running wild with the possiblities. When she meets Ludo on the train to London after he offers to pay her fare when she lost her ticket (first class no less!), he is easy on the eyes, easy to talk to, and a welcome distraction from her worries.Read More
Not a huge fan of the whirlwind romances involving (view spoiler) but at least the virile hero (view spoiler) It was a really quick read, sweet story but seemed kind of rushed at certain points. Also (view spoiler) didn't quite hold with the tone of the ...more

The book In Petrakis's Power book, Ludo Petrakis is a ver6y rich man. Ludo's brother died three years ago. Ludo hasn't been back home since. He didn't think his father was proud of him. He meets Natalie and pays her father more than his hotel chain is worth, if Natalie will go to his home town with him as his fiance. Interesting story line.

"Cox's beautiful romance brings the scents, sights and the sensual delights of Greece to life. Her leads are the perfect complement to each other and their lovemaking is hot enough to warm the coldest heart." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars

This book was certainly refreshing in that the Greek hero wasn't the typical Alpha male. Ludo was more than willing to take his share of tge blame for everything wrong on top of that Natalie was a unique loving character herself.

No matter what was going on in her life, whether joy, happiness, struggle or disappointment, she'd go to bed each night and lose ...more
