This is my first by this author and I was pleasantly surprised. This is a wonderful story about finding love in the least expected place. The characters were wonderful. Though Kitty has some major self-esteem issues, with the help of Nikos she works through them. Because of Kitty, Nikos learns to love again. This is one of those books where the author let's you see step by step, how they build a relationship, a love and a strong partnership. Most importantly, I really liked how the author used N...more

Another enjoyable story from a first time author read for me. Nikos was a good hero, not cruel. Kitty, the heroine had quite a few self-esteem issues but other than that this is a good read.
I'm just discovering this author. I think this is only my second book thus far I've read by this author. At this time I can't remember how I rated her other book, but for this book I was very mixed.

I've grown up on Harlequin Present novels. I don't know how long Ms. Shaw has been writing for the HP line, as I mentioned I'm new to her books, but I do feel she fits in well with other notable HP authors.

This book started out well. I'm always a fan of books where heroines aren't described as gorgeou...more

This book's ridiculous.

Why? Because the ending is just unbelievable. Katarina or Kitty forgive him that easy after every thing Nikos said. Just like that. I don't like it, I don't enjoyed it.

The story went promising at first but after a while I can't feel Nikos' affection. It's like he didn't even like her.

This book could be better.
the basic plot was really had great potential but i did not like how it developed. i did not feel love bet these 2 n the hero was very cold, not lovable at all. not even much angst in this one. just a cold hero & a pathetic heroine feeling sry 4 herself time n time again bcoz she was not a svelte blonde wid gorgeous legs lol !! ofc the author tried 2 explain her insecurities but i did not buy it. now as 4 nikos, he had known true suffering.he had been through much since the very begi...more
This is the first book I really loved from this author. The heroine was an amazing woman shy and slightly insecure about her body originally but as a princess she was wonderful. She was caring, compassionate and her love changed the hero irrevocably. Nikos seemed cold and unemotional but his sad lonely past broke my heart. In reality he is a very vulnerable man who was deeply betrayed by his first wife and is devastated by the loss of his unborn child. He thinks he will never find the courage to...more
I enjoyed reading this story. Shaw did a nice job of creating an arrogant, cold Greek tycoon and an insecure, shy heroine into characters who were engaging and very likeable. I will admit though that I struggled with the idea of a princess being so uncomfortable in social situations. I would assume that that kind of training came with the position, especially since she was born into a royal family. Nevertheless, I liked both main characters. Also, although the HEA ending was expected, the plot a...more

Katarina 'Kitty' is stunned when billionaire playboy Nikos mistakes her for a waitress. Princess 'Kitty' realizes that the gorgeous man would never really be interested in a plump, frumpy brunette when he is only ever seen with svelte blondes, but catching her skinny-dipping on the beach in the moonlight gets Nikos all excited. Only after she ends up pregnant, does he find that she is a true princess.

A very nice story.

This is a very passionate love story, and the characters make the novel a keeper. I enjoyed watching Kitty transform from a shy, frumpy woman into a sexy, confident princess. Nikos is a compelling hero who had been the toughest kid on the streets and survived some devastating blows in his personal life.
This was a good novel. I couldn't believe how low Kitty's self esteem was all because of that asshole that took advantage of her.
Such a good book I read it so quickly. Good story and plot and it was interesting.

I grew up without a TV, let alone DVD’s, computer games etc that my kids spend so much time engrossed in, but I learned to read at an early age and from then on I was always entertained – so much so that my friends used to hide their books when I visited them because all I wanted to do was read!
