I really did not enjoy this book.
Spoilers: The couple had an affair then he dumped her because she said she loved him. He goes back to his womanising ways and forgets about her. She is pregnant, poor and of course, celibate. She struggles to bring up his babies then finally decides to go to him for financial help. When they meet again after so long, he wonders to himself how he ever found her attractive, as he has had so many beautiful women in his bed since then and she doesn't even come close. When he finally decides he wants her in his bed again, he tells her if she doesn't sleep with him he will go and find someone else to fulfil his needs (it has been a month after all, and for him this is an intolerably long time). She doesn't want him with anyone else so she sleeps with him. When she won't marry him he blackmails her by threatening to take away her children. He deliberately doesn't buy meaningful gifts for her because he doesn't want her getting the wrong idea and getting emotional over him again, however we are supposed to like him because he does take the time to buy her less meaningful gifts himself when his staff bought the gifts for his other women. He never apologises for being so horrible and treats her in a condescending way throughout the book. Despite his awful treatment and abandonment of her, we are then expected to believe he loved her the whole time but he just didn't realise it. He dumps her, didn't contact her, didn't think about her but he loved her???? I didn't feel any love from him towards her, just possessiveness. I can't understand all the high reviews. He does not redeem himself and I wish I had not read this book.

4.5 stars if given the option.
Katie is mother to Alexandros twin boys, which he doesn't become aware of until 9 months after their birth. Alexandros and Katie had an affair almost two years previous and broke up because he freaked after she declared her love for him. Alexandros wasn't able to except Katie's love because of the tragic relationship he was recently getting over, so decided to push Katie away rather then deal with his confused feelings for her. Katie and Alexandros are brought back together after Katie seeks his assistance with the twins, because of her desperate situation and finally realizing that he should be held responsible for assisting her to raise them.

Alexandros is a bit arrogant and can't understand how Katie can reject and challenge him as she does, because no other woman has ever done so.

This book was a great read, the characters where likeable and well matched. Even though the heroine is desperately poor, she doesn't allow the hero to run over her to get what he wants.

Are the only words that popped into my head when describing this book. I read the description and thought this might be a fun book. The lead female has children by a the lead male and he knows nothing of them. I would have gave this book 1 1/2 stars, but the growing feelings between father and sons made me give it 2 stars. I still don't know why Katie was in love with Alexandros when they first met. According to the story he disrespected her and ran out on her because she told him "I love you." Katie was insecure, naive, weak and not a fighter, she let him run all over her, it made me want to throw the book across the room, but I bared it and gritted my teeth as I read on. At 23 years old I could never imagine being the way this character was. For a woman who had two children she should have had a stronger backbone. The sex and Alex's possessiveness were the only things that kept drawing them together. I like a strong agressive man, but if you are looking for a strong fiesty woman who speaks up for herself and doesn't let a man completely rule her, these Harlequin books are not for you/me.

Katie and Alexandros are a great couple! They met, clicked, she fell head over heels in love, he dumped her...fast forward 18 months and she's struggling to raise her twin babies. At her wits end, unable to make ends meet, she contacts Alexandros. He never received the letter she sent, or was told she tried to contact him by phone. So he's shocked at the news he's a father. His past makes him wary and he does not handle things well. But never fear...the HEA will happen despite wounded hearts and misunderstandings. Be sure to read this one. It's a sweet story and an entertaining read!

Katie had a fling with a Greek tycoon - see, there were some, despite Greece's current problems. He was into shipping and she didn't know that his wife had died and he'd come to Ireland for a break away from that life. When he went back to work he cast her off just as casually, and then she discovered that she was pregnant. She tried to contact him to no avail, and ended up working in London (why we are not told) with her twin little boys, trying to find rent for a bedsit and with an ever increasing hole in her pocket. Nobody from social security seems to have asked her who the boys' father was.

Desperate to give her boys a better life, she goes to the tycoon's office and asks for a flat for them, but naturally he demands a DNA test although he can see the resemblance. He's still unwed so heirs are important to him. If he has to take Katie along to get them, well she'll just have to cope. Katie has her pride and doesn't want to make the same mistake again, of thinking he loved her, while her savvy girl pal shops her to the less scrupulous press for cash. Plenty of issues here!

The descriptions were reasonable but I did rather resent the way that this man jets around the world and even has clothes or whatever flown in at a whim, so now we can see who has been filling the atmosphere with greenhouse gases. Katie rather enjoys the luxury of the Greek home, and never once questions the cost. Well she is quite young, if not well read. The characters don't seem to have one thing in common besides a sexual attraction and don't have any conversation to speak of except about themselves. I didn't much like the tycoon, a selfish git, but maybe that is what they are like. Katie was well written though and I would read another by this author.
