He Was Just Using Her!

Five years before, Pierce had married Alix one day--and rejected her the next. And why? Because she had been his route to a fleet of ships and his revenge. He had been passionate and she had been in love--but once was enough for Alix to have her fingers burned!

Now he was back and as demanding as ever. She must now marry him to help her sick father and

This is one of those HQN's that you either love it or you don't.

I (surprisingly) really enjoyed it, even though those revenge plots are my least favorite trope. I just find that whole altruistic attitude of "let's save the family and at the same time cure world hunger" a bit too much to swallow. However, this one was surprisingly different, in that the heroine really did hate the hero and he had to work hard to win her back.

The reader is given all kinds of clues along the way as to his true fee
Hero marries heroine to get revenge on her grandfather. He rejects her after their wedding night although he secretly loves her. His honor supposedly forces him to continue with his plot (yes, it's over the top). A few years later, she's in financial trouble and he sees it as a golden opportunity to force her to remarry him. Definitely a guilty pleasure type of book.

This was definitely a page turner. I couldn't wait to see what the H would do next. What I liked about this was the fact that she d

From the book blurb:

Five years before, Pierce had married Alix one day - and rejected her the next. And why? Because she had been his route to a fleet of ships and his revenge. He had been passionate and she had been in love - but once was enough for Alix to have her fingers burned!

Now he was back and as demanding as ever. She must marry him to help her sick father and die ailing family business - and again she had no choice. But this time things were different. Before she

Where to start with this one? I love tales of painful betrayals and redemption. The H was a jerk, no question. What kept me reading was the question how the H, who was so very cruel, could be redeemed.

The h hated and for the most part hated well, it would be too much to expect 100% consistency in the hate level in one of these romances but still done better than a lot of other 'I hate you, I despise you' books. It was frustrating that the h felt the need to apologise for the smaller issues yet t

Perhaps it is time to revisit the definition of what makes a hero.

The H cheats/betrays/ill treats and in this book, actually slugs the heroine on the chin. Yes, I know the knocking out part is so she can be taken away, ostensibly to safety, but seriously...haven't these people heard of sedatives?

And trust comes so easy for these heroines! This one in particular has been done over by the hero once before. And there has been no apology from the hero. He says he has a good reason and he implies re

Hated it. Loved it. God, i don't know- it did evoke some pretty powerful emotions from me. Hero was jerk from the start but the ending did explain why. I think he grovelled pretty good but if you're like the likes of me- there can never be too much grovelling.

Değişik bi' Harlequin romanıydı. Açıkçası hiçbir beklenti olmadan başladım ama güzel sardı. Beş yıl önce yaptıkları evliliğin aşk evliliği olduğunu sanan esas kızımız Alix, kocasının asılda büyük babasının gemilerinin peşinde olduğunu öğrenince evliliği bir cehennem azabına dönüyor ve boşanıyorlar. Beş yıl sonra ise sevgili eski kocası Pierce, Alix'in maddi sorunlarını çözmesi karşılığında onunla tekrar evlenmesini istiyor. Hikâyemizde böylece başlıyor.Sonrasında ise beş yıl önceki evliliğin tüm ...more
Aunque sea uno más del estilo "te odio, te amo", Alix es una protagonista que piensa (cosa rara). Ella no se pone ciega de rabia sino mira las cosas con objetividad y reflexiona. Ahí está la diferencia con los otros del estilo que ya he leído, y por eso me gustó. El odio de Alix hacia Pierce tiene su razón en el pasado, en el presente ella reflexiona y se percata de las pequeñas señales que Pierce le envía. Pierce no comparte el odio de ella y lleva las cosas con paciencia aunque no deja de cont ...more
