And when the movie mogul arrived in town, he discovered why everyone had turned against him. He'd gotten one of their own pregnant.True, it looked as though he'd been avoiding Maura Donohue's phone calls; he was a busy billionaire. It didn't have anythi ...more

Maura the woman who says it like it is, and Jefferson King, the man with no clue what a 'real' woman wants.
I did not expect to enjoy this so much!
Jefferson runs a movie company so I guess you could say he's an executive producer, and Maura owns the sheep farm by a small village in Ireland, where he wants to shoot his latest film. He stays there for longer than expected because of Maura. Because she drives a hard bargain, and because she's got him totally turned on. The whole village puts press

Maureen Child's Wedding At King's Convenience has to be one of the best Silhouette Desires that I've read in a long time.

Maureen wrote all of the characters well, not only just Maura Donohue and Jefferson King, but all their siblings and the townspeople of Craic, Ireland.

This was a book that was hard to stop reading, and that's saying quite a bit as it was the first full length eBook that I've read. So it really kept me staring at the computer screen. I wanted to know what happened next, but mos
There were some interesting moments, especially that when Jefferson came back to Ireland while the movie shoot was in a huge turmoil and the whole village rejected him.
However there were also plenty of other moments that I did not like that much. The first part of the book when Maura held on the negotiation to keep Jefferson under hand because she was attracted to him did not feel like foreplay and attraction to me, more like stubbornness and greediness combined.
I could not understand, nor accep

I think when I was 10 and liked harlequins I would have been all awww. But now, well it was good, but come on!

Maura lives in Ireland. Jefferson is a big shot from Hollywood and he is trying to get her to let them film on their farm. We actually meet them when they have know each other for almost a week. They do it, and goes their separate ways. And Maura was all in love and he was all I can't love. You only knew each other for a week, come on!

And of course she is preggers. It is so weird how fas
After finishing JoAnn Ross' Castlelough trilogy I was in the mood for another Ireland-set contemporary. Unfortunately this didn't work as well as Ross' series did.

I didn't care for the arrogant way the hero acted, nor the way he expected the heroine to fall in line with his plans. I expected some romance, and instead got a demanding hero, prickly-yet-somewhat-pathetic heroine and an unbelievable HEA. Why she was "in love" with him is beyond me, and his reasons for holding himself back from love

I love the story. It was really emotional seeing how Maura love him so much and Jefferson not seeing that he is in love with her too. I kept on reading , wanting to know what happens next. Just love the ending part too . All in all it was a good read .I felt touched when Jefferson realises his love for Maura and all this heart emotional meeting again. (sigh):)

I liked it, but I didn't love it.
In fact, Maura annoyed me. A lot.
I'm not sure why, and though I agreed with her on a lot of stuff, she still managed to annoy me.
Jefferson did too.
It's a good read, but not something I'd pick up again.
And for what it's worth... I *hate* the title.
If you like secret baby stories, you'll probably like it.
Originally read in June 2011 and rated with 2 stars. Re-read this in August 2013 and still thought it was just ok!

The author is a native American writer who loves writing happy ended love stories.

Storyline: Maura Donahue, owner of a large picturesque farmland in Ireland, one day is encountered by the owner of a large film studio from New York, Jefferson King, in order to hire her farm to shoot his forthcoming film. Though initially Maura declines the huge commercial offer from Jefferson, she later budges to the same, when she finds that she is in love with the handsome and powerful King. She signs a contrac

A king story without the other kings is always the best way to entertain a reader. Seeing the lives of the other Kings affect their story is very beautiful. It's not just the two of them, there's a whole big family and community out to watch their own movie unfold.

Jefferson King, a high flying American, really wanted to hire the use of Maura’s land in Ireland for his latest production and was surprised when she said no to his people. He decided to head out and persuade her him self and after much negotiating the deal was sealed and the couple celebrated …. Together!! Jefferson went back home totally oblivious to the fact that their night of passion had resulted in a pregnancy, and true to form he had been avoiding Maura’s attempts to contact him. The firs

I acquired this book through Mills & Boons as part of their free book giveaway.

This book may be part of a series, but can certainly be read independently of the others. It follows Jefferson and Maura. He wants to use her land as a backdrop to shoot his movie. She wants to watch him sweat it out while she makes up her mind about it. It’s a lot of money, but she’s stubborn and doesn’t give in to the first handsome face that comes around.

She finally concedes and it’s bound to come to the point

It was an okay read. Both storyline and characters kept me interested enough to finish this.

Jefferson King was used so used to getting what he wants and he would do everything to convince Maura to marry him. I liked the fact that he was man enough to accept the responsibility I just don't like the way he asked her to marry him expecting that Maura will just comply to his wishes. Another thing I don't like was the way he kept using his dead wife just to justify what he did to Maura.

As for Maura

I liked the heroine, Maura, she didn't take any crap. Jefferson King, the male main character was a tool though.

I liked the Irish setting. Both of my parents are Irish and I tend to look for mistakes, such as a peat fire doesn't give off much light so you wouldn't be able to see much from it and all the O'Shay's I know spell their names 'O'Shea' and Ireland really isn't some king of fairytale/third world country as it is so often painted. But otherwise the pickings were fairly slim.

The cover an
I mean.. Jefferson King is educated, wealthy, a man of the world.. and he doesn't think about using .....


Idiot. (And so was she.)

The insta-lurve was off-putting, the characters were unbearably clichéd and twee. More Irish than the Irish themselves in places.

(I have one serious question though. If an American writer is writing an Irish person, should that person 'think' and speak in UK English?
It threw me a bit to read Maura thinking about 'tires' (tyres) )

I would have given this five stars except for one error in the book that jerked me out of the story. Other than that it was well written with great characterisation and a lovely warm feeling. However the medical error which had a 3 month pregnant woman working with lambs and sheep meant it lost a star.

this was terrible... The way Maura (and I hate the name) was written, I thought she was an old lady for most of the book. I mentally had to drag myself back into, no she's like twenty something young.

This was a quick read - only 186 pages - but pretty good for a Desire romance. Set in Ireland. I thought the hero was kind of arrogant in his treatment of the heroine, with the usual "i will never love again" tripe, but it turned out to be a good story overall.

This book intends to speak much on romance wherein it really disappointed me . Had a bad experience after reading this book. The story gettin' unneccessarily dragged in the middle. Not a good experience of reading this book.
Jefferson King final meets his match..and love match in this novel! It was a very good book..will read again

A sexy and sweet read. There were times I wondered why Maura didn't hit Jefferson over the head with the nearest handy object.
