"She hides a shocking secret"Ramon Velaquez, heir to the Velaquez winery, clearly stated his cardinal rule to Lauren Maitland--he can't promise her more than a red&-hot affair. While she heard the words, her heart wasn't listening, and she left with more than the memory of their blissful night together...

Two years later, Ramon finds Lauren again. She's independent, str

So the story goes like this; the female character, Lauren is a successful lawyer, who comes from a broken home after her father walks out on her and her mother. Lauren still has emotional scarring from this time. She has been having an affair with the rich Ramon, the male character, with whom she has fallen in love and just discovered she is pregnant. Ramon comes from Spanish nobility, and is a self confessed playboy who fears the day he will have to settle down and marry a suitable blue-blooded ...more

The heroine Lauren is a very successful lawyer. She has a casual affair with the hero Ramon who happens to be a Spanish Duke and is determined to marry a suitable wife preferable a Duchess.

Lauren ends the relationship even though she knows she is pregnant and hides her pregnancy from Ramon. 18 months later the hero discovers he is now a father and proposes a loveless marriage of convenience.

Loved this book. This romance was very intense. The heroine was fierce, independent and a hotshot lawyer

I enjoyed this book. Ramon was the perfect asshole alpha. He was over the top, possessive and it was his way or no way. I liked Lauren, at times she frustrated me but nothing that would ruin the book. He resolve toward Roman is understandable, so was her need to be independent.

Anyway, it was good.

Lauren falls in love with Roman and the day she was going to tell him she loved him and was pregnant was the day he was a dick and atraight out said she was only good for sex. A year and a half later,

His Unknown Heir is not a super exciting book with tons of angst or betrayal. Instead, it is about two strong, independent people who try their best to compromise and make their relationship work when they realized it was a relationship they both wanted.

Lauren is great. She's a smart, hard-working lawyer who values her independence and refuses to rely on anyone for either emotional or financial help. She is part of a big law firm specializing in commercial property and she's very proud of her c
This book has trope I usually like: the chick who finds out she is a mistress and didn't even know it. Some authors can overcome the hero's initial ass-hattery and arrogance and prove dementia-preventing-love with a solid good panicky grovel, but not this time.

Lauren is in a passionate affair with Ramon and, shockarama, finds herself facing a little blue line. Over the course of the evening, the big R makes it clear he is not in it for the long haul. He is a Duque back in Spain and needs to marr

Em primeiro lugar adorei a atitude da Lauren, no início do livro, colocando Ramon contra a parede.

Isso porque, ela só queria saber qual seria o futuro do relacionamento deles.

Depois da resposta do dito cujo.

A única atitude descente, que a mocinha poderia tomar, era romper o relacionamento.

E sem dúvida alguma, Ramon mereceu ficar na total e completa ignorância, mesmo que temporária, do segredo da mocinha.

Por mim ele nunca ficaria sab
Run of the mill secret baby story with no real surprises. I can get behind a good secret baby story if the reason for it is solid and/or different. But here is was not real solid and even worse in my opinion, the heroine is an older, well educated, gainfully employed at a good job, woman. She should have known better. I generally give an 18 year old making a bad decision a bit of a pass because that's just a mixed up kid making a bad decision but that wasn't the case here. Other than that standa ...more

I never quite liked this novel, there was always something holding it back. The emotions didn't seem real. Honestly, it was kind of messed up. It felt super bland.

I grew up without a TV, let alone DVD’s, computer games etc that my kids spend so much time engrossed in, but I learned to read at an early age and from then on I was always entertained – so much so that my friends used to hide their books when I visited them because all I wanted to do was read!

When I was a teenager I discovered Mills & Boon romances in my local library, and so began a lifelon
