I think I’m giving up on Entangled Greek Millionaires’ stories.

If I can be honest and a little bit rude, this one sucked (apologies to the writer who put all her efforts on writing the story… I’m just frustrated).

So, Erica once had a romantic fling with some Greek dude and she got pregnant. But after the first trimester all contact with him was severed: A

I really enjoyed this one! It's a very well done marriage of convenience story with great characters and pace that has you reading page after page. Tito Makris is stuck between doing what he thinks is right and fulfilling a promise made to his now deceased best friend. Now to convince Erica Silver, the mother of his best friends son, that marrying him and coming with him to Crete is the best thing to do. He doesn't want to go through the courts to take the boy away from his mother, so this seems ...more

Her babies father’s family don’t think she fit to be raising her son, but they also want Nick to inheritance the legacy, and he’s the only m
This is a great addition to this series and I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into Greek culture as part of it. It is well written with a strong, determined and loving single Mum doing all she can to bring up her son alone until along comes a powerful man who expects to get everything he wants and he wants to honour his now deceased best friend’s wishes by
taking his son to live in Greece . . . . Can a marriage of convenience become one of love?

3.5 stars! ***

It was a typical harlequine romance. It was short, it was fast.

Erica had a one-night stand that lasted a week and ended up with a child. Now she's twenty-two, she works in a strip bar, tries to study and she takes care of her baby boy Nick. And the greek father isn't i the picture. Actually, he never was.

Tito is succeful, rich and he swore to never settle down. But he promised his best friend that he'd take care of his child and baby mama if something happened to him. He died in a

A delicious Romance featuring a Classic Greek Alpha Male and the Ultimate British Spitfire. I loved the entertaining battle of the wills and the strategic plans to outwit each other, even more when the hero and heroine started enjoying it too. "The Greek Tycoon's Tarnished Bride" storyline has an air of cloak and dagger to it. But the over-arcing main theme was Family.

This is quite enjoyable read. Tito is looking for his friend's baby, he has a promise to keep. However when he finds him he must do something he will not like at all. There is no other way but to marry boy's mother. He wants to ensure their safety and keep his control but what he doesn't realise is that Erica will question him at every turn, challenging his control and driving him crazy. Erica knows that she simply cannot refuse his son a legacy but marrying Tito is a little too much. Still she ...more

The Greek Tycoon's Tarnished Bride was an OK read.

While I thought the storyline was well written and held my interest I just didn't fall in love with either lead character.
I struggled with both Tito and Erica, while they were both passionate characters I didn't feel/believe any connection between them.

Overall this was a quick and emotional read that will play with your heartstrings.

Thank you Entangled Indulgence via NetGalley for the advance copy.

Tito has a serious stick up his butt, he needs someone to remove it the boy is always serious, “so, to get back to the practicalities. Are there any other matters you want to discuss apart from my sexuality?” I'm not sure why but I love these stories they intrigue, and make me wish I had a man like Tito, well once the stick from his butt is removed because I liked him a lot better after that. ...more

This is a really enjoyable read. Tito is the quintessential alpha male. He has however, met his match in Erica. The ultimate in mama-bear awesomeness!
Full review to come closer to publication.
I read this novel as part of the Men of the Zodiac box set but I will be trying to review each novel individually.

The premise of the series is that each man has, for one reason or another, got a tattoo from a mysterious tattoo artist of his astrological sign. No matter that most men don't know their star sign and would probably struggle to know what image represents their sign even if they did!

Sometimes it's refreshing to read a book that takes me back to those real story driven traditional romances. You know, the ones with that have Fabio on the front? I'm a secret lover of those! Seriously, sometimes the titles are a bit cheesy but I love a lot of the story tropes!

Would she marry a stranger that said her son was in danger and the only way to keep him safe was to marry him? He would be able to provide for not only her son but also her and she would be able to stay home and take care of him instead of her pole dancing. Tito Makris made a promise to the man that saved his life and he intended to keep it but this woman, Erica Silver, was making it so hard. She was a woman that didn’t hold her tongue and was not scared to do battle when it came to her son. Onl ...more
I read The Greek Tycoon’s Tarnished Bride by Rachel Lyndhurst in an afternoon.

Tito Makris is looking for his friend’s baby. He made promises that he intends to keep, but finding him and bringing him home, are two different things. After finding the mother and child, Tito must do something that goes against all he stands for, he will have to secure the child’s future by marrying the baby’s mother. Or threatening to take the child away and calling her an unfit mother.

This story has so much promise and at times, the story did fall flat. Erica fell in love with a guy from Greece and the guy said he would come back for her but he never did. Erica fell pregnant & had the baby. She ended up having to work in a strip club while going to college in order to make a better life for her son. The baby’s father never came back for her which deep down hurt but she never let that hurt her baby Nick.

​​​​​Marriage of convenience romances are my absolute favorite, and The Greek Tycoon's Tarnished Bride by Rachel Lyndhurst does not disappoint. Money, power, and the legacy of an infant born into poverty, are combined to create this affecting story.

I have to say that I loved this story and the way that it all ended. Rachel Lyndhurst definitely knows how to grab your attention in the very beginning and keep it though out the whole story. I loved that this dealt with the Greek culture as well. We don't see many stories set in the Greek culture so it was a nice break from other stories.

2.5-3 stars.

To be perfectly honest, this was not my favorite of this series.

Ok, so we have Erica and Tito. Tito showed up in Erica’s life to fulfill the wishes of his best friend, and of the board of this big company.

Well, I pretty much disliked the guy for the entire story. He was in Erica’s life to pretty much take away her child (the heir to this huge company). He truly thought he could buy her off, and when that didn’t work, he thought of marrying her, so she stayed in the child’s life. And

Erica Silver is a woman who will die for her son. She's willing to go hungry to make sure that her little boy Nick has a full tummy and a warm bed. That being said, when a man who claims to be her dead baby's daddy friend turns up claiming that Nick is a heir. You can understand why she is hesitant in believing him. It doesn't really help that this Greek stranger is also claiming that the only way she can go with him and be with her son i

Tito Makris is a stuffy man. He's not happy and everything he does is out of duty. He barely shows any emotion until the last couple chapters of this book. Erica silvers emotions are out of control. One minute she's hysterical, the next she's calm and rational and after another she's flying off the handle again. One minute she's suspicious of Tito and the next she's trying to seduce him. Emotions in this book are all over the place and hard to keep track of. I didn't like the way the Frango's wo ...more

This story was actually pretty good. It was an emotional heavy book. Tito goes looking for his dead best friend’s child that he never knew about. After Nick’s father leaves Erica mid-pregnancy she thinks he totally abandon her and his responsibilities. Tito isn’t overly impressed with Erica’s life style as a stripper. At first appearance, Tito finds Erica to be an unfit mother and is ready to take her son away. Seeing the dedication she has for her son, he convinces her that the only way to be i ...more

The story starts out when Erica Silver has a man coming out of the blue to tell her she either has to marry him, or have her son taken away from her. Tito isn't at all sure what he's doing when it comes to Erica, and have he gives a crazy ultimatum and gets her where he wants her his feelings start to change. But to him this isn't good, and Erica isn't at all sure what the next move should be, but she can't seem to stay away from Tito.

I received a copy of this book from Entangled Publishing for an honest review. After reading the synopsis I had a fairly straightforward story in mind.

Erica was a strong and resilient heroine who fought hard to give her son, Nick, a good life. Nick's father stopped all contact with her mid-pregnancy so she thinks ...more
