    This is one of JB's better ones because she keeps the revenge and angst up until the very end and the hero does an excellent grovel. There is a twist that I wasn't expecting (view spoiler)[ the heroine had been assaulted by a stranger and just missed being raped. She had gone through a trial and put the man behind bars. At the end of this story, he's out on parole and she is terrified.(hide spoiler)]The virgin heroine has a mother (now dead) who betrayed her and got her into a financial mess with the hero. She also has a traitorous body, so how you feel about brain-dead heroines will affect how you feel about the story as a whole.The hero is obviously smitten by the middle of the story and does a great grovel. He was faithful to the heroine since meeting her at the beginning of the story.

    I actually really liked this book. You got to see the POV of both the hero and heroine, which I loved, plus you saw both of their internal struggle with their feelings for each other. JB is known for using the blackmail/revenge trope which I love. Plus this book had a super alpha hero which is my fave!Yes, the heroine was attacked and the hero decided not to read her full background report HOWEVER, he would not have blackmailed her into his bed knowing about her assault. Plus the hero got upset with himself for not picking up on the subtle clues the heroine was showing, making it known she was uncomfortable with her body and around men. I loved how this book had the hero not the heroine wanting the big talk and expressing his love. I loved that, though it was not confirmed, the reader and the heroine knew that the hero was responsible for the attack on the man who assaulted the heroine. I’m sorry but **swoon**.Why not 5 Stars? To my knowledge, JB never reconciled the loose end of if the heroine was pregnant or not. This was a real concern for the heroine and even during the epilogue when the hero and heroine had been married for a month, I don’t recall the mentioning of a baby or even a pregnancy. I considered this lazy on JB’s part. Oh, and the old man Ted is the reason why the phrase “Dirty Old Man” was coined. This was a decent book that was entertaining and intriguing.

    Kind of stomach churning revenge plot on a virgin with a bad mother by yet another bewildered, besotted Greek tycoon that failed Mensa. Angsty fun for some, just not me.Brownie points though (view spoiler)[ for setting up a brutal attack on the vicious wannabe rapist of the heroine. Nothing says love like Beaten by Thugs and Intensive Care. (hide spoiler)]

    Didn't like this book at all. The hero was an asshole and slept with other woman while they were apart. The night he met the heroine he was with aanother woman talking about her voracious sexual drive and it just grossed me out. He was mean, cruel and honestly a herk throughout the entire book. The h was a virgin but he still thought she had slept with another man the night before. He punished her unmercifully and I just couldn't buy his grovel at the end. It wasn't enough for me. He left her for five years and he was not celibate either. I can understand that but it just turned me off. She had been attached and almost raped and I know he didn't know it but he treated her like hell. I also got mad at the heroine for responding to him. Enough already. Just gross. She was like, no, no, yes, yes... It was sickening. I wanted her to freeze him out. Yes he asked her to marry him and then he had the wannabe rapist beat up but I still didn't ever like him.

    Somewhere between 2.5 to 3 ⭐️!And that too only because of a strong lovely Heroine and a different/interesting story. I disliked the hero so much and I’m not completely convinced of his faithfulness. Too much reference about past women (ughh) such that, I couldn’t enjoy the book completely.

    Typical JB dwama, angst fest. You either like JB and blackmailing alpha male tropes or you don't. I do, so I liked this one.The heroine, eloise, fell for the H, Marcus, when she was 19 and spent some time with her mother on Greek Island where Marcus was also staying. Circumstances separated them and they next meet when she is 24 and struggling to make her jewelry design businesss a success. In the meantime she was brutally attacked and nearly raped. As a result she is very private except with her business partners and good friends and she never has anything to do with men. When she runs into Marcus she isn't aware that he thinks she was a part of her mothers scam to bilk Marcus's uncle out of a fortune. She was actually totally unaware of what her mother had done. Circumstances make Marcus think that she uses her sexuality to get wealthy backers for her business. Actually he is more than willing to believe this as he is jealous and needs a good excuse to blackmail her into having an affair. She of course is a sitting duck to be blackmailed as he threatens to take her to court for the fortune she supposedly got from the uncle. She is deathly afraid of courts and publicity as the legal system totally destroyed her after she was attacked. Now this is the part I always have difficulty with in HQN's. I understand that she still has lust fever for the H, and that she overcame her fear and gave him her virginity before she realized that he was a blackmailing jerk but I've never figured out how lust fever is more powerful than revulsion at being called a lying, thieving whore. Oh well, then I always figure this is fiction and maybe lust fever in Hqlandia is more powerful than any lust fever I ever experienced.So I liked the heroine and the H was ok. The HEA was believable and I liked that the H realized he loved the h before he found out the real story.

    Yet another Greek tycoon blackmails beautiful younger woman into being his mistress, acts like a jerk, and they fall in love. This time she was supposed to have defrauded his uncle (she didn't). Overdone as it is, I seek out this trope. However, this was one of the more forgettable ones.

    Wow! Angry alpha Greek tycoon seeks revenge against virginal innocent heroine for defrauding his uncle. Eloise will become his mistress for a year so as to pay her debt but the thing is she had fallen in love with Marcus years ago. How will she guard her heart and how will Marcus react when Eloise's dark secret past comes back to haunt her yet again? Very good read. Full of drama, angst and sexual tension. Heroine is vulnerable and has an endearing innocence. Marcus is so protective of Eloise so possessive and passionate I wanted him for myself! He also grovels like no other hero! Nice to see a hero being appalled at his own insensitivity tormented and racked with guilt!

    I couldn't bring myself to even care about either the lead characters. I probably would have given up on the book if it wasn't short. I did end up just skimming part of the book. (view spoiler)[ I felt the plot was unrealistic for someone who has experienced some physical and quite a lot of emotional abuse. I could not possibly see the lead female character agreeing to stoop so low. As the lead male character, I have nothing nice to say about him. He had no conscience and truly was no better than the man who attacked the lead female character. The only difference was that he was a handsome, wordly Greek Tycoon. He blackmailed and forced the lead female character into his bed. What was the difference, a knife held to your throat, or someone with the power to destroy not only you,but anyone associated with you?(hide spoiler)]

    I'm not overly fond of Jacqueline Baird and her usually horrible heroes blackmailing the heroines into their beds. But this one wasn't so bad.Heroine and hero have a summer fling while she's vacationing with her mother. She wants it to be permanent but lots of things happened to pull them apart. Heroine's mother has actually scammed hero's uncle out of money. Now years later the hero finally tracks down the heroine and decides to get revenge because of what happened with his uncle. He blackmails the heroine into his bed. Meanwhile, the heroine had returned home and was attacked, almost raped, and stabbed. If that wasn't bad enough the trial had the lawyers blaming her and saying that she was a tease, lots of angst, or so you'd think. The hero wasn't that bad, but he does have his moment of finding out where it's all about him and how awful he feels for what he's done. It really stopped me from liking the book, but I certainly think the hero is way better than some of her other books.

    I sometimes like the plots where heroine is blackmailed into acting as hero's mistress, but this was very out of character given her difficult experiences. It just didn't seem likely that heroine would have said yes given her history. The 3 months where hero ignores the heroine were inexplicable. Story was trying to work but didn't quite make sense. although at least heroine's virginity had some explanation and hero's pov provided some evidence of his inner conflict.

    I couldn't get into this one, the H veer's quite dramatically between being all over the h to being just plain nasty. Of course it's all justified (in his head), but to me just came across as someone needing a therapists help. The h, while likeable enough has traitorous body syndrome, not my term but it perfectly describes the sickness that often ails h's. This mean that the H can dole out all sorts of insults and still gets to sleep with the h.

    Intense. Eloise had fallen in love with powerful Greek tycoon Marcus Kouvaris years previously, but now he thinks she was involved in scamming his uncle, which lead to his uncle's death. He's determined to have his revenge on her by forcing her into his bed.Question: So many HQP involve the man "forcing the woman into his bed". Sure, in this series it usually leads to a HEA, but isn't this trope very close (f not there) to rape?!

    This book had about 4 plots going through it's tiny pages and too many sex scenes for it's lenght. The heroine SHOULD be smart, kind and capable but the author makes her such a victim of everyone: mother/hero/attacker. She has a business that the hero just bosses her around with. How she is presented after the 'agreement' is in place she should have went dead inside and the hero kinda needed to bring her back. But all she cared about was 'lovin' the hero who treated her terribly. Never listened to her, helped her in any way, and distrusted everything she did. Hero could have been a villain in another story, cause damn. He didn't let the heroine even think her own thoughts without him. Too much going on for such a quick read.

    This is the types of books E. L. James reads. Enough said.
