It quickly became a passion and, for some time, she forgot all about writing and immersed herself in Shakespeare, Ibsen and Chekhov. The birth of her first son changed her priorities. Natasha didn't want to leave home again. She began writing as a "creative displacement activity" when her fifth child started sleeping through the night. Terrible though it was, the ambition to be an author was reborn. Since Natasha has a tendency to flick through novels to check if it has a happy ending, it was easy to decide the kind of stories she wanted to write.
She lives in Bedfordshire with her husband and five children. Her house is in a constant state of disarray, but she makes great cakes, writes books and no one seems to mind. Natasha loves to hear from readers via her email: How can that be? He was a baby when he was adopted!

Overall book rating
Upon reread I really liked this book a lot better. I loved the hero actually. He gave her his card and told her to call him if she needed him but when she did call, she didn't say a word. He would have been there for her I just know it. He loved her before he knew he loved her. They meet at her wedding and she is marrying a man that her Father made a deal with and he is mean and cold to her and she has never been kissed or anything.
On her wedding night she finds out her husbands secret and real Upon reread I really liked this book a lot better.

On her wedding night she finds out her husbands secret and realizes her marriage is a sham. Her Father even knew the secret and still forced her to marry him. The hero finds her and learns what happened and he gives her the wedding night she deserved. He does tell her tonight only and she agrees. The next morning he sees her and gives her his card and tells her she has options. She totally bucks her parents and she gets an annulment. They throw her out and lo and behold she finds out shes pregnant. A year later, the hero overhears his parents talking about her and she has a little boy that is two months old.
He immediately goes to her, she is living in poverty taking care of an old man, and he rescues her and takes her to his greek island. They never talk about the baby or whose it is. It is very different. Of course he tries to push her away and she stands up for herself and there are still some secrets she has about his birth and her Father and it ends very nicely. The epilogue is wonderful. I don't know why I only gave it one star. It was so unusual. And his celibacy is unclear but she did see him on the internet with z lof of other women so of course he probably wasn't, but it didn't even bother me that much.
It's not discussed or thought about at all. I just really liked the book. Maybe it's because lately I have had so many cheaters thrown at me that it was pretty lame compared to them but I really think I would have liked it anyway. I am glad I re-read it and gave it a chance.

The heroine flees the reception and runs into the hero who was captivated by her as she walked down the aisle. They have a one night stand, but for once, I didn't cr I liked this one better than the second book about the hero's twin who was left with his abusive father this hero was adopted out. They have a one night stand, but for once, I didn't cringe at it. The hero is so very sweet and the heroine is so very needy.
I liked how he made up an entire past history of their dating life and how it lead to this moment. The sheltered heroine needed that. Fast forward a year. The heroine has a secret baby in England. She doesn't contact the hero because she thinks he'll hate her after she finds out her corrupt father was the one who sold him as a baby to his adoptive parents. Hero only finds about the heroine annulling her marriage by chance.

He then hunts her down and brings her back to Greece. The second half of the story is the heroine recovering from the birth of their son and feeling guilty about the secrets she knows. The hero is getting more obsessed about his origins and yet the heroine says nothing. It says a lot about the hero that he doesn't fall into vendetta mode and that he really stops to think about his actions during the black moment. He was a great hero.
Heroine was so downtrodden by her parents that her actions makes sense and her final actions show real courage. There are some whut? He was an infant when he was adopted out, so not possible. But he is an alpha HP hero - so who knows. Heroine was celibate and it's never mentioned if the hero was celibate during their separation.
This is an amazing book. I was totally hooked from the first page and by the end of the prologue I was overwhelmed by such an incredible feeling of wanting to continue reading the entire book —non stop I am not going to give the plot away This is an amazing book. This is the story of Nico Eliades and Constantine Connie who meet on the day she is getting married to a man chosen by her family.
Her wedding night turns into a nightmare for her and Nico comforts her They both go through incredible difficulties in their lives before they finally find happiness together And there is a cliff-hanger Nico discovers he has a twin brother This is such an incredible book. A refreshing and original plot and such depth in the story. Carol Marinelli is definitely one of my favourite Mills and Boons author.
Jan 03, RLA rated it it was amazing. There is something about her that he can't stop thinking about and when he sees her again, crying her eyes out, he offers her comfort. Connie is feeling humiliated after discovering the truth about her new husband, and doesn't know what to do, fearing disapproval from her family should she decide to end the arranged marriage.

I loved this book, it had me hooked from the very first page. The plot is original and enjoyably unpredictable. Carol Marinelli has managed to include a wonderful blend of happiness and darkness that really creates depth in this story. The journey that the hero and heroine go on, both individually and together, is simply spectacular. It is a true masterpiece! And, this book has, hands down, the best love scene I have ever read and I have read a LOT of love scenes!
This is a brilliant book; full of emotion and is Carol Marinelli at her best. Originally posted at http: I loved this very romantic book. The overall tone of the book is very lyrical without being over the top or maudlin. The first love scene between the hero and the heroine was sweet, moving, romantic, and wonderfully written. So out of the ordinary that a one night stand in a Greek billionaire romance is so moving. I think any woman in the world would have fallen in love with the hero. Even better the scenes created in that imaginative scene are alluded to throughout the book especially by the he I loved this very romantic book.
Even better the scenes created in that imaginative scene are alluded to throughout the book especially by the hero and have a part to play at the end of the book. The characterization is very well done. The hero is shown to be an unapologetic product of his upbringing. For example, he refuses to lift a finger to pick up or clean anything but in a charmingly arrogant way of course. He never treats the heroine poorly. The heroine has been brought up in an extremely sheltered manner.
She put up with it out of a Greek girl's duty to her family even as she wished to be more modern and free. She learns to stand on her own feet with just a little help from the grace that the hero gifts her with on their night together. She has some problems but does have a backbone.
At one point when he is doing a bit of arrogant game playing with her she breaks her date with him and tells him she will go alone. What you think I need you to go out with? I'm very happy with my own company. I know she won't sulk, I know she'll enjoy the evening. Then he's scrambling to get back in her good graces. Not your typical HP. Read it if you're looking for something a little different.
Hope the brother's book is just as good. Very blah and boring book.

I'm not a fan of this author. The plot was predictable and I felt like it was a chore to crack the book open and to try to read even a few pages. Nov 01, Becky rated it it was ok Shelves: Interesting plot, very unusual and could have been great, but so odd in many ways. Started out cool, but 1 so many one-dimensional evil people, 2 Surreal and unlikely how a 1 year old had all these specific memories and knowledge, 3 Hero was really cold, slept with so many women he couldn't even remember them, didn't really feel true love for heroine, 4 just couldn't connect to it emotionally.
This was somewhat more depressing than what I've come to expect from this author. This is partly because the heroine is such a wilted flower, despite some occasional rebellions. Partly it's because the consequences of her one big rebellion leave her grindingly poor in London, and fat enough for her eyes to be slits. Though not so fat that a week or two later she can't fit into underwear and a dress from her trousseau.

I hate it when the protagonists have no friends, no support network.

And on top of all that, the romance was really unconvincing. Oct 08, Booklover rated it it was ok Shelves: I was bored through the book,Connie was very weak,Nico liked him,half story Nico-Connie stay seperated and rest half is all about Nico,his birth parents what happened,why he was sold and he comes to know of his indentical twin Alexandro.
I am somewhere between a 3. The beginning and ending were so romantic.
I loved how they pretended they had met and dated before their lovemaking and the end where Nico thought to himself if he had grown up on Xanos, he would have actually loved and courted Connie. It was all so sweet. It was just the middle stuff that bothered me. It just felt off and unreal. They just didn't connect in the middle. There were so many editing errors in this book, as well. I was I am somewhere between a 3. I was quite surprised. I like this author but this isn't one of my favorites.
