Regan's playboy father took Andreas Vatis' wife from him years before. For years he waited for her to grow up so he could claim her as his wife in a crazy, old school eye-for-an-eye sort of plot only sensible to a HP Greek Tycoon. He tricks her into his home and forces her to marry him and provide him with sons. Mwha ha ha!

How could that be boring?

Well, it could be boring if the heroine's actions/reactions made no frigging sense.

Andreas was suitably dastardly and arrogant for the story to

Meh. I like those angst filled drama moments, but not when the heroine's actions don't make any sense. I mean really, didn't it ever dawn on her to just scream (view spoiler)

Heroine's father seduced the hero's wife. Hero had a tragic accident that left him blind and since he blames Regan's father for all his misfortunes he wants revenge. He makes the heroine believe he wants her as a guardian for his daughter but when she gets there she realizes she is just a pawn. Hero forces her to marry him and heroine tries to escape several times.

Very good story. Both H/h were jealous and insecure. Hero was harsh but vulnerable and unlike 80's heroes not cruel or sadist. Heroi

Ok. What it said inside about greek wives, husbands and etc. was totally too much. I'm Greek myself and I know that things like this (total focus on revenge, unopinionated wives, etc.) don't happen. We live like, in the 21st century! The book was good overall as a story but I didn't like too much Carole Mortimer's point of view about how things are done in my country...
If this is Love I'd hate to see what sheer hatred looks like !!

FINAL DECISION: Formulaic and containing characters without any tremendous depth, this book wasn't terrible, but the relationship between Andreas and Regan didn't feel connected or interesting.

THE STORY: Andreas Vatis is a Greek businessman who is seeking revenge on Regan Thomas. Her father seduced and ran away with Andreas's wife. Andreas has lured Regan to him and now intends on forcing a marriage from her. She will replace the wife and heirs that her fathe

To make it short : even for a fiction , the plot is unbelievable and the dialogues are hallucinating (specialy at the beginning when they know each other for a few hours only)

This book was listed on the Harlequin site as a new release for November 2015. It's actually a "second chance" read from 1981! The story line is terrible, the characters unlikable, and the plot unbelievable. What a waste of time.

Plus it had a really dated vibe to the whole thing. I thought at first it might be an early work the author had only recently dusted off and published. Actually, it's just an old book that HQN is trying to sucker consumers into buying again. I wish I had looked closer b

The revenge plot was weak

The best part was that the heroine always stood up for herself

At least their love was somewhat believable
