ARC provided by NetGalley and Harlequin in exchange for an honest review.

Rating 1.5

This was pretty bad. I almost couldn't finish this one. I skimmed some parts too.

This had no, I mean no romance for me. Maybe the last chapter or so had a smidgen of it.

We have a heroine who is "not pretty" "wouldn't have noticed her" theme pretty much through half of our story. Well let me be clear that's some of the terminology used at the beginning of the story by the hero. The self esteem for the heroine was

I'm totally agree with Esther's amazing review! His cruelty made me cry and this is the only reason I've gave 3 stars.

The alpha hero character was perfect, but without angst or revenge or hate it falls flat until the very end when he indeed had a reason to be but it was short lived. The hero was a neglected rich child and has never loved. He was cold ruthless and harsh. He didn't seen compassionate and kind hearted at all but brutal and sexy. He was also judgemental and a law into himself. A real rich snob and arrogance poised from the character. Lucy was humble and compassionate, the antithesis of who he seem ...more

Drakon is as rich, handsome and sexy- he also had his dead twin brother’s infant son to raise. So he need wife & mother to help him do this properly and so Lucy came to mind. He had a brief affair with Lucy and she’d been a virgin at the time. He wanted a contract wife, much like an employee but of cause Lucy wanted more. I never warmed up to Drakon and Lucy was like a doormat. I might have like the story more if Lucy had punched Drakon in the face. He was a cold fish and this book was ...more

Heat Factor: Their relationship is based on hot sex, so...
Character Chemistry: The victim/a**hole dynamic makes for chemistry challenges
Plot: Greek billionaire needs mother for orphaned nephew
Overall: Thought it would be an absurd bit of fun. Was so disappointed.

I love a little fun category romance! I read the blurb for this book and thought, sounds like a ridiculous category romance! Let’s do it for Christmas! The whole premise of having to get married

This book is part of the Harlequin Presents series, # 3762. Sharon Kendrick is a favorite of mine and I usually pick her books up without reading the blurb. Drakon has just become guardian of his orphaned nephew and convinces Lucy to marry him for the sake of the baby. This is a typical Harlequin romance and is a quick and easy read for the Christmas season. I received a copy of this ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Lucy had tried to blot Drakon from her mind. Because only an idiot would want to remember the man who had introduced her to pleasure and then walked away so fast. Or to recall her own participation in what could only have been an impossible fantasy. But he was here standing on the step. The first thing she thought was how different he seemed from the man who had seduced her on his Greek island of Prasinisos. Suddenly Drakon bore more resemblance to a rock star who spent the night on the tiles, ...more

Drakon marries Lucy because he needed a mother for his orphaned newborn nephew. He chose Lucy for her kindness, innocence and capacity to care. (He had an affair with Lucy 5 months earlier and learned at at 28 she was still a virgin. He believed that this made her the ideal choice for a mother.

They marry. The sex life is great as long as it stays in the box that he put it in. She’s not supposed to show up at the airport to pick him up after a long trip and initiate sex in the back of

Sharon Kendrick has a skill for creating men you love and men you hate all at the same time and Drakon Konstantinou is no exception. He is a cold cynical and moral man and when he needs a guardian for his orphaned nephew Lucy has no defense against his potent appeal.
The man who once introduced her to sex is now offering marriage and sweet Lucy is tempted. But is the price of being the billionaire Greek's wife too high?

I loved the way Lucy battled with her emotions and tried not to fall in love

Lucy hasn't heard from Drakon since their 3-day fling 6 months ago. When he shows up on her doorstep, she is stunned. She's even more stunned to hear that he wants her to marry him, not because he can't live without her or because he realized he loves her, but because he has become the guardian for his nephew and needs a mother for him.

He wants a wife, an over-the-top wedding, and hot nights in the bedroom, but he doesn't want her heart and he won't give her his. Can Lucy live with those terms?

Drakon comes off as a gruff, a-hole, ‘I thought I’d made it clear that I would pledge to you my sexual loyalty,’ he said coolly. ‘Because I know how destructive infidelity can be. I’m not planning on having anyone other than you as my lover, Lucy...' I really wish Lucy had some lady balls the girl didn't really stand up for herself and I kinda didn't like that. This was just an alright read to me.

Another brilliantly written book from Sharon, which keeps you gripped in the story from the first to the last pages.
Another dominant male character who brings out the strength in his chosen partner, enabling them to eventually find happiness together.

Rich playboy, Drakon needs mousy unattractive Rebecca to help raise his orphaned nephew. Drakon was just plain cold hearted and unlikeable and Rebecca had some serious self esteem issues. The characters didn't share any chemistry outside of the bedroom. Overall I'd rate this a 2.5 star book.

Good descriptive writing taking you into the lives of Drakon and Lucy. Reminders of their earlier fling and Lucy's feelings for Drakon during her formative years help in understanding why Lucy agrees reaily to be Drakon's wife and a mother to his nephew. A book I wanted to keep reading to the end.

I quite enjoyed this marriage of convenience. Lucy and Drakon are an interesting pair. He's domineering, cool, collected and calculating while Lucy is shy, demure and full of insecurities. Seeing them grow and fall for each other was satisfying, though I thought he could have grovelled a bit more considering what an ass he'd been.

ARC was provided to me by the author for an honest review.

I was told off as a child for making up stories—little did I know that one day I’d earn my living by writing them!

To the horror of my parents, I left school at sixteen and held a bewildering variety of jobs: I was a London DJ (in the now-trendy Primrose Hill), a decorator and a singer. After that I became a cook, a photographer and, eventually, a nurse. I waitressed in the south of France, drove
