This one really didn't work for me. The story tries to combine elements from Catherine George's previous works and a typical Mills and Boon - unfortunately, it fails to do both. The hero was arrogant, protective and confused as he shuffled between both. He wanted revenge, but he wasn't obsessed with it, he's supposed to be attractive but it doesn't translate into confidence or charm. The heroine...I don't know what to write, she made no impact. She was as distinctive as a weak, blurry cloud. Add ...more

This book reminded me of Mills and Boon of old, well to begin with. A very autocratic hero who oozed charisma by the bucket load but a heroine whom I thought lacked the fire that I’ve come to expect from modern titles.

I enjoyed it but I did feel a little uncomfortable with certain rehashing of the heroine’s past... the suspense and intrigue parts of the story I was also uncertain of. I felt, maybe, just a little too much plot and situations weren’t really character driven but were put in place
First of all what a stupid title for a book they really seem to be scraping the barrel these days for book titles.
Our H was nothing we haven't seen before 100 times and so was our h. Grumpy arrogant Greek male - get off my land type and wispy washy I had no idea let me have an accident female type throw in a kidnap plot, accidental pregnancy, it's not my baby argument then a bit of a grovel and its HEA time. Nothing new in here for me sorry

An okay read. The romance was only tepid. It was the first book I've read from this author. Although I usually prefer my Greek Heroes written a bit more aggressive, Lukas did have charisma.

I love the greek trope even though the romances are rarely good in it. I don't even have a clue as to why on earth there is a greek trope regarding tycoons (name one greek tycoon you know.), and in this economy, it's even more ackward to read some romance involving some rich and handsome greek tycoon.
This one, I won't finish it. By the time I reached 36% of the ebook, I had head/desked 3 time already. Never a good sign.

Catherine George was born in a village on the Welsh-English border, where the public library featured largely in her life. Her mother, who looked upon literature as a basic necessity of life, fervently encouraged Catherine's passion for reading, little knowing it would one day motivate her daughter into writing her first novel.

At 18, Catherine met a future Engineer, who had set in a pendant a gold
