I have not read many books by this author, but the few that I have read have been very good. What I enjoy most about her style is that she can put a lot of angst into a story, but still end up with some very likable characters. This is a story of re-united lovers who after a passionate one night stand 9 years ago come across each other accidentally in a crowded hotel lobby. Neither one can forget that night and of course there were repercussions in the form of an adorable little 8 year old boy.. ...more

this one did not work 4 me!too cliched! i've read this trope too many times. i felt 4 willow. after all she had been through, teenage pregnancy wid no support, yet she stood up 4 herself n raised dat baby admirably well. while theo was enjoying himself wid his slutty wife n basking in wealth. ofc he claims he had never got over her. why not look 4 her then ? if u dreamed of her time n again n cud not get her out ur mind!? he was no ordinary man, a billionaire surely can make his own rules.
Fairly average HP. Typical arrogant HP Greek tycoon H. Nothing particularly stood out there. He was definitely big on the crushing grip and punishing kisses, almost a bit old school on that score.

I did like it that the h wasn't living in abject and pious poverty with her child, but had made a decent living as a writer. Also, she did have a moment of panic when the H threatened to take her child away, but then she calmed down and called a lawyer to find out the real possibilities and not just go
Rating: 4 stars.

Need to reread this book, as I only remember it a little bit.

There's a reason I don't read Harlequin books very often; They all have the same formula and follow it to a T. At the same time, I can't help picking them up every once in awhile and reading them like the little guilty pleasures they are. Super alpha male, super beautiful naive virgin girl(w/violet eyes no less)...yadda yadda yadda..throw in a baby sometimes..big misunderstandings with other people who may or may not be former lovers and end with a big I love you confession from the rake, which ...more
Decent enough read but not necessarily something I will read again.

4 1/2 Stars! ~ Ms Baird writes such wonderfully intense love stories. Theo and Willow have an instant attraction, that ends as quickly as it began. Now nine years later, Theo is determined not to lose her again. Discovering he has a son feeds that determination. Willow sees Theo as an arrogant womanizer and is afraid to risk her heart again. Their's is a passionate journey to HEA. Great passion, great angst, great scene where Theo realizes all he has to lose, and a sigh worthy HEA

¡Un griego con sentimientos! Felicitaciones a la autora, ha sido la primera novela de griegos que he leído en la cual él tiene algun sentimiento antes del epílogo. La historia... bien, es como tantas otras: ella se queda embarazada tras una noche de pasión, él no lo sabe y cuando descubre se pone furioso. De hecho, son las escenas en que las emociones de Theo desbordan las que hacen la diferencia.
18 year old virgin. 28 year old experienced playboy. one night child. Too arrogant hero. Spineless till the end heroine. Not enough grovelling by the hero.
heroine running into the ex-mistress at the restaurant where hero is paying her off was poor taste.

Great book, the hero was Greek, so I loved it naturally. He was an arrogant asshole who learned how to kiss some booty good. heh.

I liked that she wasn't a push over although as she stated she liked to hide from change and reality she got her head straight and tried to work with facts and not just emotional fear. I'm not sure if she realized she wasn't going to be able to hide the facts for much longer, how long did she think this secret would hold?? Although to be fair, she made several attempts to do the right thing but always ran just when it would have gotten harder to actua
When Theo Kadros first caught eye at the beautiful Willow Blain, he definitely wanted to take her to his bed. And he succeed. But only one night could not satisfied him. So he told Willow to stay with him and though Willow was still so young (18 y.o), he still wanted to court her.

But the day after that, he woke up and found out that Willow had left him. And what can he say but to let Willow go.

Now, after a long nine years, he finally met Willow again. She had become a succesful writer and still,

Baird has a gift with this plot line. This is probably the 3rd book of hers that I have read with a plot centering around a secret child and big misunderstanding, but I still come back for more - even though I really want to shake her characters at certain points in the story. In this one it was when (view spoiler) ...more

I don't know why I bother with this author. She writes the most annoying, bitchy and immature heroines in Harlequinlandia!
