For Pleasure...or Marriage? (Models & Millionaires #1)
A mistress is for pleasure, not for marriage...
Tycoon Markos Makarios thinks he has the perfect woman in Vanessa: she's beautiful, adoring, living only to please him. In fact, she's the best mistress he's ever had. Until he has to warn her not to think of marriage; a mistress is only for pleasure, after all.
But Vanessa had believed she was his partner--not merely a playth...more
Never before in her life had she been so grateful to be beautiful--because her beauty was for the man she loved. For Markos. Without it, after all, he would not have looked twice at her--but with it, oh, with it, she could lay it at his feet as her gift to him.
The last thing Markos needed was criticism from her for working so hard. One of the few things she could do for him, after all,...more
Actually one of my favorite of this genre (of which there aren't enough) listen up HP!
Vanessa believed she was in a relationship with Markos, and hence was living with him! While for Markos, Vanessa was nothing but the most perfect MISTRESS!

I loved this book. He is bored with life and hears her fighting off men while trying to tour Paris. He finds her beautiful and feisty. The word mistress gets pulled in and she is hurt because she has fallen in love with him. He has to grovel to get her back. I loved that alone but the book was good also. This will a reread for me.
His cousin added some funny moments and I appreciated the h's final backbone. The H is officially an idiot.
It was a nice book. There were some moments between the main characters that I loved, specially at the end when she treated bad the hero and refused his "help" to raise her child.
However I like my heros more like Olivia Gates', Michelle Reid's or Jacqueline Baird's style.
I didn't feel NOTHING for this hero at all, he is not going to be memorable. Julia James is not ...more
