I'm a total bookworm and a romantic at heart. I'm also a little bit of a paranormal nerd so I absolutely love books that are about creatures of the night and allow me to submerge myself into a world of fantasy.

Synopsis

Greek hotel magnate Chrysander Anetakis's former mistress was pregnant? And had amnesia? That meant Marley Jameson didn't remember betraying him by selling company secrets. Or that he-d thrown her out of his life. So he told her a little white lie: they were engaged. Then he swept her away to his Greek island to await the birth of his baby and enjoy her sudden devotion...before tossing her out.

But he didn't count on Marley regaining her memory so soon.

Review

The beginning of this book started off promising, with dynamic characters and an interesting storyline. Yet the author quickly lost me when common sense seemed to fly out the door. I found it difficult to believe that the hospital would release Marley to Chrysander without any proof that he is acquainted with her, especially since the people who kidnapped her had not yet been caught.

Marley was a well written character who seemed, for lack of a better word, real. She was so traumatized from her kidnapping that she had lost her memory. Her confusion at being treated so poorly by the "hero", the man who claims to be her fiance, made me feel for her immediately. I felt that Chrysander's character left much to be desired. Thinking that Marley had betrayed him and slept with him to get pregnant, he comes up with the idea to lie about being engaged? Did i miss something? At this point in the story one almost gets the impression that he despises her, so why say their getting married? There were several moments in the book where I would have loved to have slapped Chrysander and his brothers, whom were no better in their treatment of the women carrying their niece or nephew. Once the ending is revealed and Chrysander gets an attitude adjustment the book redeemed itself, somewhat. I look forward to reading the other two stories in this series, I just hope they prove to be a better read. MATURE CONTENT, BE ADVISED.
