The title of this book is a bit deceiving. You would really think that this story was about a power hungry man out to keep a woman for his own bidding. The back blurb isn't accurate either, as the child is not left on Orlando's doorstep, but is brought to him by his former lover.

its a same that the two things don't really provide a better account of what the story is about, because it may turn some readers away from a really good book.

In fact this story is much like a modern day fairy tale. It's
India Grey has written a spectacular and moving love story in Mistress: Hired for the Billionaire’s Pleasure. Bravo and magnifco would be the way to describe this story as it’s about courage, strength, bravery and determination.

India’s English alpha is a competitive, proud and determined man who is tortured because he has a degenerative eye disease which has forced him to leave the RAF something he loves more than life. He’s recently lost his brother when his RAF plane crashed. All through their

Midway through this book, I wasn't sure I'd finish it. The mistaken assumptions and refusals to communicate were just too frustrating. I know, I know, and believe me, I knew what I was getting into, reading a Harlequin Presents. I had liked the beginning, the gothic-y feel of the hero and heroine meeting in a cemetery, the heroine running away from her own wedding during a rainstorm and finding herself drawn to the expansive estate of the brooding, mysterious hero. Their initial interactions wer ...more

The description writen for this book is TOTALY NOT RIGHT!!!

My description:
The life of the best pilot, Orlando Winterton is abruptly changed the moment a serious eye problem forces him to give flying up. He isolates himself hiding the fact that he's graduately going blind. Until one day, when Rachel, famous pianist, appears at his door asking for help.
Her unique, delicate beauty awakens his desires and everything he's sworn to forget f
Een heerlijk romannetje voor tussendoor. Deze was niet te soepsappig. Deze ging echt ergens over. Je leest over Rachel die op het punt stond om in het huwelijk te treden, maar ze vlucht. Ze ontmoet Orlando bij het graf van z'n broer. Kort daarna nadat ze een aanrijding krijgt vangt Orlando Rachel op en ze mag voor zolang bij hem overnachten. Orlando heeft een oogziekte en is zo goed als blind, maar dat wil hij Rachel niet vertellen en doet net alsof er niks aan de hand is. Rachel is een succesvo ...more
First of all, what is up with the title? The story is about a man struggling with losing his sight and a woman who seeks refuge at his home.. I call false advertising!

I loved the angsty hero, but that's where my enjoyment of the book tapered. The self-described "impractical" heroine bored me to tears with her fragile perfection. Seriously though, she was a mouse - there was one scene where she was afraid to HOLD A KNIFE because she might damage her fingers (and no, being a concert pianist isn't
I really have no idea what the title was supposed to have in common with the content. The story is rather sweet and much less sensational - all based around the traditional miscommunications, naturally. A quick, light read.
Cait Miller
Good story, worst title ever - not only because it's a terrible title but also because it only relates to the story by the thinnest thread. The heroine isn't his mistress, nor is she paid to do anything.
eBook from Mills & Boone. Really bad title, for a very nice book, about a man going blind, and a concert pianist. There were a few "misunderstandings," but they were resolved pretty fast.
Liz Fielding
Moving story with a powerful hero, heart rending heroine. The title is a bad joke.
I'm on some Harlequin trip and i can't seem to stop. Sigh
Tonya Warner
Nice, fast-paced story.

India Grey was born in England, UK. A self-confessed romance junkie, she was just thirteen years old when she first sent away for the Mills & Boon Writers' Guidelines. She can still recall the thrill of getting the large brown envelope with its distinctive logo through the letterbox, and subsequently whiled away many a dull school-day staring out the window and dreaming of the perfect hero.
