The Billionaire's Pregnant Mistress (Petronides Brothers Duo #1)
When Greek billionaire Dimitri Petronides is forced to give up Xandra Fortune, his beautiful mistress, he's certain she won't be too distraught. For all the intense passion they've shared, she's never let him into her heart, and such a commitment-shy woman could never be his wife....
But after their split Dimitri discovers that Xandra Fortune is not who he thought she was--...more
Dimitri Petronides is an Italian tycoon and Xandra(Alexandra) is his mistress but he has to break it up with her cause his granfather is sick and he refuses to undergo the surgery till Dimitri agress to marry Phoebe who is a Greek girl and moves around their family ci ...more
This is Dimitri's story, the older brother who was to marry Phoebe (but his brother did instead) in The Latin Lover: The Greek Tycoon's Inherited Bride\Back in the Spaniard's Bed.
This one was well-written, too, and I enjoyed the plo ...more
WTF 1) Xandra Fortune is a European model. Gosh, can't tell you how easy THOSE are to relate to. It's a good thing she wasn't a supermodel yet because I never would have been able to relate to that.
WTF 2) But she's a model with a secret identity. (Again, good thing she wasn't a supermodel because the superhero/supermodel jokes would fly.) You see, Xandra Fortune is really ...more
My only negative, is I think she forgave him too easily. It would have been so much stronger to draw out the reconciliation.
Xandra is heartbroken when Dimitri bre ...more
I loved this book,i know the theme is cliche and was predictable but i did not care because i enjoyed every page of this book,after so many DNF this week and books i did not enjoyed i m glad i read this one.Let me say Dimitri was one HOT alpha male,yes he was asshole in beginning but Alexandra make him pay it for it.This book is page turning,steamy and light read,loved both hero and heroine,great second characters.
Mistress gets pregnant, Greek dude promises dying grandfather he will marry some Greek chick and dumps mistress, mistress runs away, Greek dude realizes he's a big schmo and grovels for the rest of the book, yada yada yada, HEA.
UPDATE: 5 stars!
The first time I read this I didn't love it, but I've since reread it about a million (billion...hee hee!) times, and now it's my all-time fav HP.
I will admit I know these books can be cheesy at times and I know they are out of date but there's still something about books like these that I almost find comforting and I like, when I want an easy romance with an archaic man(yes sometimes I like my men archaic) I go to books like this. Dimitri and Alexandra had a whirlwind romance for just over a year. Alexandra was a model and Dimitri was a billionaire businessman. Both Dimitri and Alexandra had a lot of secre ...more
and this is coming from someone who has been reading romance novels since (never you mind) and I have forgiven A LOT of odd plot lines in the name of HEA.
The story reminded me of those old Loveswept series circa 1980s. I saw that it was published in 2004 but that can’t be right. It had to be a reprint.
First off, Xandra (Xandra?) Fortune is a French supermodel (working only in Europe) who ...more
Dimitri Petronides was an awesome greek hero. I loved how the author showed us that beneath the cold and unfeeling exterior lies an emotionally tortured man who lost the woman he loves and sacrificed his own happiness.
Xandra Fortune was beyond hurt when Dimitri breaks off their ar ...more
I ended up enjoying this book more than I thought I would in the beginning. Once the hero and heroine stopped fighting and started being agreeable, I liked both of the characters better. If the dialogue had been a bit more realistic and less stilted, it probably would have rated 4 stars.
