If pregnancy + amnesia = Pregnesia (according to the Harlequin/Silhouette title generator), then what is pregnancy + amnesia + kidnapping? Pregnesiapping? Pregnappinesia? The heroine in this one finds out she's pregnant, has sex, encounters nasty Other Woman, gets falsely accused of stealing, gets thrown out by rich Greek lover, and gets kidnapped, all in chapter 1. And I thought I was having a bad hair day.

I admit to not being a fan of Maya Banks' writing. I don't care for her erotica and I wa

In this book's acknowledgments, Banks writes about how much she loves category romance. Perhaps that's why she decided to write The Category. It has everything you'd expect: the overbearing Greek hero constantly spouting Greek endearments, the pregnant, vulnerable, doormat heroine, the evil other woman, the big betrayal (twice!) and amnesia! (Really seems like it should have been a Harlequin Presents rather than a Silhouette Desire, but I guess there's some overlap.)

I like all the elements, why

What can I say except that when I find an author I enjoy, any time I see the name the next thing I know the book is in my cart! Yes, Maya Banks is writing a trilogy for Silhouette Desire. The good news is, the heat is still there. The bad news is, it's still 'formula' romance. The rest of the good news is, I still enjoyed it and it was a steamy, quick read!

Read this long ago, loved the series as a whole. This one is about Chrysander and Marley. She was just his mistress to him but she was pregnant and in love with him. When he thinks she has done the worse, he abandons her. Only for her to wind up kidnapped. When he finally realizes the truth, it may just be too late because Marley seems to be broken beyond repair.

This review includes all three of the "tycoon" books by Maya Banks....

What exactly is a "tycoon" and why is it so damned popular in certain romance novels? According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, a tycoon is "a businessman of exceptional wealth and power: magnate." So, basically a tycoon is a really rich, powerful guy. Okay, I sort of get why that would be sexy. And, the tycoons in Maya Banks trio of books--The Tycoon's Pregnant Mistress, The Tycoon's Rebel Bride, and The Tycoon's Secret Af

This was a very interesting book. Ms. Banks takes a storyline that once was used to often and gives it a new fresh feel, the story of amnesia. Our heroine, Marley loved Chrysander, but he thought she had stolen from his family and his company. So while he cared for his mistress he sent her away from his home one night.Marley so upset she couldn't think left without anything, no purse, none of her things, nothing. While still in shock over Chrysander's comments, Marley is kidnapped. She's worried ...more

This book had potential. Unfortunately, it was ruined by not only occasional bad grammar and typos but by contrived and choppy writing, passive TSTL heroine and TSTL hero.

I am a fan of amnesia stories but this one didn't make sense. The hero is supposed to be a stranger since she is amnesic and she allows him to do with her what he wants? A bit of caution and restraint would have been in order.

One of heroine's TSTL moments:

Heroine: "Chrysander, why do you have so many security people?"

I just finished reading this book for the 3rd time. It is one of my favorites. Maya Banks is a very talented author. I hate that she changed the cover of the book. This one is much better than the new one. Just my opinion. Back to the book itself: I felt the deep emotions of agony, pain, and love. I read a lot of books, and this book is by far the best at telling the story, that I could feel the intense emotions that the characters were feeling. I was pulled right into the story.

ok...so this was a fascinating book, but really went down hill and fell flat in the last 30 pages. I have never read a Maya Banks book, but for some reason, I expected better from her.

I actually could get past the implausibility of the kidnapping and the fact that the kidnapping wasn't resolved in the end. I could get past the fact that even though she had major reservations about Chrysander (she could see his hatred for her in his eyes) she was still willing to hop off to his secluded Greek Is

I enjoyed this book. It actually reminded me a lot of what Response would have been if written in present day. When the book opens, Marley has just found out she's pregnant. Rather than telling her boyfriend, Chrysander, she asks him about their relationship and is told rather succinctly, that she is a mistress, not a girlfriend, not future wife material -- pretty much that she's spent this whole time thinking they had a love relationship when in actuality he thinks of her as his whore (he's not ...more

Another hit for Maya Banks in my opinion. I really liked THE TYCOON’S PREGNANT MISTRESS.

***Details***

I was worried going in that the entire book would be spent with Chrysander Anetakis wanting payback on Marley Jameson after he believes her to be selling insider information to his competitors.

On the day Marley is set to tell Chrysander about her pregnancy, she questions the statues of their relationship and he accuses her of stealing. As she’s leaving their building she is captured.

At the start of the book the heroine Marley has just found out she is pregnant and although she and the hero Chrysander have been together a while, Marley doesn't know where their relationship is going. Before she gets the chance to tell him about the pregnancy he confronts her and accuses her of stealing information from his company and orders her out where she is then kidnapped. Three month later Chrysander discovers that Marley has been held hostage since they last saw each other and she is p ...more

This is the first book in the "Tycoon" series with the Anetakis brothers ... this one is about the oldest brother, Chrysander. I'd read the one focusing on Theron yesterday (they are quick reads) and thought it was pretty dumb. But I'd already downloaded this one from the library so thought I'd give it a shot.

It's not a great book but I enjoyed it more than the first one and the author seemed to be more in touch with reality.

I read this one in the past and based on another GR review, I had to read again. After the H cruelly rejects her (believing she stole secret company info and informing her she is just his mistress), Marley is abducted and held for ransom. The trauma is so great, when she is recovered she has amnesia. There is a particularly nasty and interfering personal assistant who causes a number of problems for the couple while on the road to HEA. I liked it - 3.5 rounded stars.

Marley has been Chrysander’s live-in mistress for a little while and it’s going ok. Except that now she’s pregnant, and she’s not sure how he’ll react. Before she has a chance to find out, Chrysander’s sexy evil assistant has planted the Secret Hotel Plans in her bag, Chrysander’s found them, accused her of betraying him, and thrown her out of his life.

Marley runs down the street, blinded by her tears of love and loss, and then she’s bundled into a car and taken away by kidnappers.

Biraz sıkıldığım anlar oldu orta düzeyde bir hikayeydi. Sıkıldığım yönler öncelikle adamın, Chrysander'in kızı sürekli koruma iç güdüsüydü. Ve o merdivenleri tek başına çıkmama hikayesi beni öyle bunalttı ki!

The Anestakis Trilogy is one of my favorite trilogies. I really enjoyed all three of them. Maya Banks is exceptionally wonderful writer who knows how to keep her readers interested.

And The Tycoon's Pregnant Mistress is my favorite book on this series. I loved the characters, the scenes, the lines and even the emotions between the two main characters.

Can they find a future together or will the truth only cause them more pain? That was the question that kept running in my mind the entire time I

This part of the Anetakis Tycoons trilogy about three Greek Bros. In this first book we get Chrysander's story and meet Piers and Theron, the two brothers.

Marley is at a crossroads, needing to know just how her relationship with Chrysander is likely to pan out now that she's fallen pregnant. Being a typical alpha male afraid of his feelings, his kneejerk reaction is 'nowhere'. This is compounded when he finds evidence that Marley is selling company secrets that same night.

He sends her out into t

Definitely typical of Maya Banks's. :)

Chrysander is furious when he found out about Marley's betrayal. Apparently when they're together, Marley managed to stole some important informations about his work and sold them to his enemy. Chrysander ditch her right away.
Marley's pregnant. With Chrysander's baby. And a minute before she spill the beans, Chrysander accused her for no reason and then shoo her without an explanation. Hurt and pregnant, Marley walked home. But someone kidnapped her a secon

This one was a slow start but definitely picked up in the middle and in to the end. It was super obvious that the evil other woman was the true villian, which is typical in these short little stories. Still made for interesting reading. I didn't like that the kidnapping wasn't resolved but since the kidnappers were actually nice to the heroine it didn't really matter. It really seems as if it was just thrown in there so as to develop the story more, which worked.

Não é fácil pra mim, que sou fã da Maya Banks, afirmar, mas estou muito decepcionada.

Normalmente quando leio algum livro da autora, é sempre sensual e hot.

Veja bem, isso não quer dizer que esperava encontrar um texto hot num livro da Harlequin, tenho consciência que é impossível encontrar algo erótico nesta editora.

Mesmo assim, esperava algo sensual ou algo que me fizesse dizer: -Este livro sem duvida é da Maya Banks. Mas o que encontrei, foi mais um livro parecido

Things went as expected. What made my reading progress hard were the endearment Chrysander was saying to Marley.

Read the Harlequin version "The Tycoon's Pregnant Mistress". Unless this is a reboot and rewrite why release it. A new pretty cover?
it won't change the Harlequin storyline. Part of a series in 2009.
Not a bad story just not great. If the author is rewriting it I will reread and change review.

While Maya Bank's "The Tycoon's Pregnant Mistress" is nothing different from the rest of the Harlequin Presents series, it has somehow situated itself in my permanent bookshelf. The plot follows the generic formula of wealthy billionaire falling for a relative nobody, the ensuing misunderstanding, and the makeup afterwards, but in an even more melodramatic fashion. Believe me, when the amnesiac plot device is used, you know it will be over-the-top.

But why does it have such a hold on me? I find m

Okay, soooo… Not bad overall, kept me interested, hit the emotions, but a HUGE suspension of disbelief and elements that seemed there just as convenience and to move the very old school formulaic plot along. So really good it kept my interest and emotions engaged despite the kind of constant slight cringing.

If you're looking for a story without a whole lot of pretense and gets straight to the point and heart of the matter, then this one's definitely for you. Page one and already I knew something was coming in a big way for Marley. Things progress rapidly from there and I really appreciated that instead of a long drawn out thing of misery. Could it have added to its appeal with more backstory? Maybe, but I didn't really mind.

Enjoyable story and characters even if I did wish that Marley had more of
