I asked karen to send me this book because with a title like this I thought it must be really good. Who knows - maybe even some threesome action.
But no. No threesomes. The twins were his sons. Don't despair though. There was lots of sex anyway.
The main character had sex once in her life when she was 17 or so. But during that one night she climaxed so many times she was all good for the next 6 years of celibate. Then that mysterious stranger reappears in her life and they are at it like rabbits

★★½☆☆☆ I didn’t particularly like this one. The hero was an asshat for too long, especially considering the heroine’s age at the time of their first meeting. Granted, he didn’t know it then, but he did later and continued to think badly of her. And she knew how he felt, but she still “melted” for him. He had enough money to investigate how she’d been living and that she wasn’t a slut. Boo to him. **Lisa Kay blows raspberry**

I agree with Jacqueline’s review: the “secret baby” theme has been done
Sander treated Ruby cruelly at times, but underwent significant character development by the time the novel ended. That counts for something in my book. Ruby may have once let Sander use her without impunity at age 17 (he did not know her real age), but she made up it for later by sticking up for herself after reuniting with him. She'd matured, and had children to think of first now.

In addition to Sander's metamorphosis and Ruby's present-day backbone, I also liked the strong chemistry between

Asshole alpha hero, lots of sexual tension, cute twin boys! There were so many times I wanted to slap the hero for being so cruel and condescending. But as much as I got annoyed, I was drawn into the story and their emotions! 3.5 stars!

This was a re-read that I will not read again. The hero literally called the heroine a whore and a gold digger right up until the last chapter. At no point did she display any of these qualities. Hello, she kept their twins a secret for 5 years and never once asked for money when she was so obviously struggling financially. I liked the heroine and given how young she was, I can see how she let herself get bullied by the hero. I love alpha heroes but this guy was just an a$$hole. And his threat o ...more

Secret babies have been better done elsewhere. The plot was thin but cudos to the author for coming up with a twist. Instead of him forcing her to marriage, she forces him.

Re-reading this one, and I won't be reading the second book in this trilogy. This is the story of the youngest Wareham sister, twenty-three years old Ruby. We already know from the first book that she has two five-year-old twin boys, and that she's living with her sisters.

Alexander (Sander) Konstantinakos, thirty-four years old 'billionaire head of an internationally renowned container shipping line', is staring at a picture of those twin boys at his home in Theopolis, Greece. The picture brough

Double Standards.

The hero is feeling pressure by his father to be some upstanding greek traditional guy. As a result he goes to a bar where a lot of football groupies hang out to get it on with some football players. He sees the heroine, who is 17 by the way, and decides to have sex with the little groupie in order to get back at his daddy for trying to plan his life.

Oh yeah, he's great.

Meanwhile, 17 year old heroine of the story recently lost both of her parents and her older sister is now the

Wow an almost 30 year old guy gets a 17 year old grieving girl pregnant with twins as a lesson in the consequences that happen when he go with an older guy at a party. Seriously grow up man. He was like a little kid constantly throwing a tantrum. You will go on the pill for there can be no other mistakes!? Wtf!!! Why the hell did he not use a f ing condom if he was truly thinking she was a slut and on what evidence did he base this on. Let's see nothing. Ass! Just a total male dominating ass!!! ...more

I enjoyed it. I kind of feel a bit guilty about enjoying after reading some of the other reviews but I'm a Penny Jordan fan. I will excuse her heroes a lot because they are rarely manwhores. In fact we have absolutely no idea if he had affairs in the last six years because it is never explicitly mentioned.

So six years ago, both Sander and Ruby were in really bad places in their lives. His granddad was trying to marry him off to a cheating adulterous widow just like Sander's faithless unloving mo
It was an ok read. Penny J was not up to her usual standard but I'm still a fan as always. If you haven't read any Penny J before maybe you'll like this one otherwise don't bother, you'll just be disappointed. I thought the way they met and came together was not bad but after that, it barely held my interest maybe because I hate it when heroines are too young (17) when they have babies.
Didn't like this one... 1.5

1. h was 17, H 28 when they met and had sex
When they reconnected he was 34. she 23 - they spend 6 years apart.

H didn't know she was so young at the time, but still. She went with a friend to a bar all made up "like a whore" (his words, basically) and looked more adult. They got into the bar, even though they were underage. Though I did Google and see drinking age in the UK is 16 - so maybe they would have had access at 17? I don't really know. In the US, with drinking

heroine made me cry , God that asshole was mean to her , I hated him.
Debbie DiFiore
On rereading this it wasn't that bad. He met her at a bar when she was 17 and thought she was a slut and he used her. He kicked her out the next morning and tried to give her money but she thought they fell in love. Remember she was 17 and a virgin and thought sex was love. She ended up pregnant and raised the twins on a very tight budget. She couldn't even afford to buy herself a coat because she spent everything on the boys so they wouldn't suffer. They were really poor. Hero sees a picture hi ...more
I must agree with another reviewer, the twins were her boobs! He loveded them boobs...all through the book!
Ok. This is the third and final book in a series about the Wareham sisters. I read all three and I'm glad that's over. I was disappointed in the first two books and I am disappointed in this book as well. I know it's a Harlequin, but this story is just too over the top to have any sense of reality. The hero is just freaking mean to the mother of his kids and she let's him talk down to her,

I don't like it at all. The hero was a major asshole from beginning to end. The epilogue was the only reason why I gave this book a 2 stars.

For me, this book shouldn't have been published. That A** of a hero just ruined the book for me from the very beginning. Most of the secret baby book Heros offered to do the right thing by getting married to the mother. So the author thought, how bout she did something different. And therefore she wrote a garbage book where hero offered to buy his children from the heroine, labelling her as a whore and gold digger. Not a nice read. And after all his misbehavior and shitty attitude, how could som ...more
I miss Penny Jordan.

Most likely I read this back when it was released as my mum had a m&b subscription where I would frequently half inch the books and replace when read. Penny Jordan was our favourite and I haven't found an author now that matches her for me.

This book is a really nice read. It did take a while but I did see how in love they were.

For crying out load, you idiot, she was 17 years old and a bit drunk. You didn't even bother with a condom. I cannot understand how men, like that, can behave like they do and say what they say and yet they still take the silly female to bed (again). (AND STILL NO CONDOM).
Cynthia Patterson

Really good story. The main male character was very stubborn in realizing he was wrong in his assessment of the main female character. Look forward to reading more by this author.

The H was more of a cardboard cut than a fully functioning man. He can't even comprehend the spectrum of emotions any human can feel. The h was a doormat worthy of being only stepped on as she has no spine when it comes to standing up for herself.

Marriage: To claim His Twins

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and the story line was good. I couldn’t put this book down until I finished it.
I liked the opener, but this could have been mcu better executed.

The male is a pig headed fucktard and the female is a masochist. There love story is one of stupidity and illogical.
Linda Freeman
Penny Jordan certainly knows how to write about a H that you want to strangle, yup, he was seriously offensive. The h was stronger than many harlequin heroines but she did allow herself to be manipulated and used. Not to fear, the H grew up, he got in touch with his emotions and he fell in love with the h. The HEA was well deserved by the h, whew.

Contemporary Greek billionaire secret babies romance plot. I've been to Greece and it is a beautiful and corrupt place so anyone that is a 'billionaire' would have to be entirely ruthless because working down there is tough because there is a lot of unemployment. So I would normally be seriously insulted by the behavior of Alexander Konstantinakos because he is a series of belittling snarky mean spirited comments about the young Ruby Wareham who he had a sexy one night stand six years ago.

I love reading these books, they are my little guilty pleasure. They generally aren't deep or thought-provoking they simply are fast, sexy *sometimes* great reads.

He returns to claim them because he believes the kind of woman he met when they were conceived didn't have the right to raise his children.
