3.5 stars.
Surprisingly typical, but not so typical HP!

The heroine falls pregnant during their affair and didn’t know what to do cause Hero doesn’t believe in love. So it was a very typical HP.

But the fact that the book is free of ‘Virginal-poor, destitute heroine’, slut-shaming and OW drama makes it not so typical!

The heroine was strong, independent and the hero was not so dishonorable jerk makes a good mark. The side characters were also good. The last chapter feels like a Cheesy Disne

I really enjoyed this. I say this about all the Harlequin Desire books. I wanted more! Lily and her family have just lost their father, only to find out that he had a secret family in a different town, and a major portion of the family empire has been left to the illegitimate other son. Lily was also dating a competitors son, when his mother steps in and pretty much says that Lily is not good enough in social standing for her son.

The characters were nice, a little flat, but good. The writing wa

I liked this book, it started a new Dynasty and that too with a scandal, after the death of her beloved father, at his will hearing Lily and her siblings find out that their dad had a secret life, a mistress and a son to whom he has left the company, Lily shocked goes out and runs into Daniel, who she was involved with and eased off from weeks ago when she found out she was pregnant and his mother made her uncomfortable.

Good start to this Dynasties series. Suspense, intrigue and more. Once again though the patriarchs and matriarchs cause problem for their children because of their upbringing. Thank goodness that Daniel and Lily figured it out.

Fue bastante bueno, pero cuando un amor es verdadero no habrá viento y marea que lo pare.
Sex, Lies and the Southern Belle
2 Stars

Following the death of her father, Lily Kincaid and her siblings are shocked to discover that he led a double life with another family. Matters are compounded when Lily's ex, the irresistible Daniel Addison, reappears in her life, and she will have to find the right moment to tell him she's pregnant.

An intriguing premise; unfortunately, Lily is too much of a doormat heroine, and the hero's 'I love you' doesn't ring true as he clearly had no intention of ma

Excellent start to the series. The mystery and conflict have been set up: who killed the elder Kincaid, and why was Jack Sinclair left the largest part of The Kincaid Group. In this particular book, we meet the youngest of the siblings, Lily Kincaid. Besides dealing with the death of her father and the turmoil in her family, she is pregnant. She is very much in love with Daniel, the father, but he has made it clear he is not interested in marrying again or having a family. He does know that he w ...more

No recuerdo porque este libro llego a mis manos, solo se que no me gusto... no me conecte con ningún personaje y sentí que la autora comenzó la historia en medio de algo y no supo explicarnos y envolvernos con su pluma en la historia..!
