I love Penny Jordan's work and though this is not my favorite book, I was still a great read. Ilios was a man tormented by his childhood. He shut himself off from the world emotionally. Lizzie is the eldest of three sisters and provider for her family. Sis summoned tonGreece by Ilios because of an illegal contract by his cousin.

Lizzie is so sweet and meeting Ilios and his threats are a shock to her. She is blackmailed into marriage to a man who see her as a cheat and gold digger. Over time she
Ilios Manos, the wealthy greek of the title, needs a wife to prevent his cousin Tino from claiming their ancestral home. English interior designer Elizabeth (Lizzie) Wareham has looked after her two younger sisters and her two nephews after the death of her parents six years ago. Ilios offers to ignore the debt Lizzie inadvertently owes him, as well as give her £100,000 if she agrees to marry him for as long as it takes for Tino to back off.

Ahh yes, another "Blackmailed Into Marriage" story. It
not a good book. i didn't have a problem with the writing style. what i didn't like is the story itself. the pacing of the story was very slow. i only found a few scenes in the story and only fewer interesting ones. didn't like the ending. it was rushed. so what, the guy realized his mistake so he'd just apologize and say he loves her and everything's okay after all the things he told her? also, there wasn't any REAL character development in here.
"Despite his repulsion for her on their first meeting, Ilios promptly decides that the most obvious thing to do in this situation is marry this stranger – oh and grab her boob. He does that too...."

Read the whole review here:
she got pregnant, he kicks her out and than finds her and tells her: 'No, it happened because I allowed it to happen—because secretly I wanted it to happen, even if I wouldn’t let myself recognise that fact at the time. Something in me, something stronger and braver than I was, knew what I most needed'

oh please.... --*
