Made to be his mistress!

This is one of those HQNs that has a misleading title and backblurb.

It's a simple and sweet story, despite Lee's usual sensuality. The heroine is a pampered 22 year old college student who has a lot of growing up to do when her father dies leaving a huge debt. She learns to come into her own without trading in her looks for money. The hero is a stodgy banker in his mid 30s who is still bitter about his gold-digger ex-wife and is determined to think the same of the heroine.

One of the few Lee stor...more
I laughed a lot! Some places I don't even think Ms. Lee intended laughter (in a good way). I loved these characters, they were exactly what the other needed. Justine was a sweet, but spoilt girl who started making steps on her own before meeting Marcus, but really got a great catalyst for change and growth when she met him - at first just to prove his smug preconceptions wrong and then later, without knowing how it happened, to make him proud of her.

Marcus had been hurt in the past and didn't li...more

Miranda Lee's "The Millionaire's Mistress" is a bit of an uneven read.

What begins with a great sexual build up, is kind of a let down on the delivery.

Marcus is a "stuffed shirt" hero with a heart of gold. Justine is young, sexy and spoiled (but despite her hot-to-trot ways, a virgin).

I enjoyed Justine's character development, but Marcus was too good to be true. I like Lee's nice guys, but prefer her (rare) bad boy heroes.

Still, it's an enjoyable, quick read. Miranda Lee is almost al...more
Cute and funny story about a spoiled little rich girl and a bitter cynical banker.

Just adore the heroine. She was not your usual poor and humble heroine. The hero was brooding but not an ass to her.

Funny, heart warming, charming and romantic. Worth reading!
very much fun, sweet n nice! from the blurb, u wud think it's a dark kinda romance where h is used n humiliated! however this was not the case at all. marcus did not have clinical sex or make their liason cheap. despite all the bitterness n his cynical nature, he acted like a besotted man, cud not control his impulses where she was concerned. she was just a pretty thing really, not much brains or wit. just a beauty who did not know real life, had never faced any hardship n wud never face them bc...more
What in the Tom Sawyer....

I'm curious about the hero calling women out of their name (female dog). This is the second or third Harlequin book in a row in which either the lead character of secondary has been a derogatory name. Now that is a turn off.
A story about a spoiled rich girl and a brooding man. Gotta like them.
The hero's rather cute, not really alpha for my taste. The heroine's strong and really confident. A great character for a virgin. And surprisingly, all the other characters were likable enough.

Cetak ulang dengan kover baru tanpa ada kode pernah terbit, jadi cukup menjebak bagi yang tidak hapal judul dan alur cerita, termasuk saya. Untuk saya golongan cumi rental jadi tidak merasa rugi untuk membacanya lagi.

Setelah membaca buku ini kembali, terjemahannya bagus dan tidak bertele-tele jadi alurnya terasa cepat. Pemikiran kedua karakter utamanya selalu diceritakan dan terkesan saling berprasangka yang berlawanan karena kesan pertama pertemuan keduanya. Sayangnya saking sederhananya konfli...more
The Millionaire’s Mistress is about the 41st of Miranda Lee’s sexy romances. Set in Sydney, it revolves around Justine Montgomery, whose father has just died, leaving her and her mother penniless and in debt. She catches the eye of Marcus Osborne, a banker, at a party. He is convinced she is a spoiled little rich girl, but is attracted just the same, and can’t help himself when she comes to see him about a loan. A sweet Aussie romance: an enjoyable read.

Orang-orang bilang ini bagus, tapi saya baca justru jaman saya belum kenal sama temen-temen pecinta harlequin dan waktu itu saya menganggap ini nggak seru, makanya dijual. :))
