Could it be In Bed With the Boss by Susan Napier:

From model secretary...
For three years, Kalera Martin has been a model secretary to Duncan Royal, with only one hiccup in their otherwise perfect relationship: a one-night stand that should never have happened, and which both have tried to forget. Or so Kalera thought.

...to the boss's mistress?
But Duncan is haunted by their one night of unbelievable passion, and secretly longs for their relationship to develop after office hours. As a rule, he can have any woman he wants -- so he's furious when Kalera announces her engagement to another man! Whatever it takes, Duncan intends to entice her into his bed once more -- and this time it will be forever.

That's it! Funny, I don't even remember there being a one-night stand. But that's definitely the book. Thanks! :)

Bleh, that book annoyed me. I don't know if it would be a good or a bad trainwreck for you hiker.

I hated the hero, who cheated on his fiancee, but couldn't just break up with her over the phone, so spent however many weeks cheating on her but not telling his current girlfriend he was engaged. She had to find out because someone told her at a party where the fiancee was. And he immediately believes the fiancee when she says the heroine stole something from her.

I really wished she'd marry someone else.

The crowning glory in this book is where he's so happy that she's such a great person for not coming forward about being pregnant and breaking up his marriage. A lot of horrible people WOULD have. Because it's the person who was single in a relationship that's at fault and responsible for the person who was not single and WAS cheating's relationship.

Maybe if he'd kept it in his pants there would have been no reason for anyone to be coming forward with anything.

Ugh.

And why did no one ever confront him about how crappy he was with everyone about what HE did? He was just gross.

The Italian's Wife (A Mediterranean Marriage) by Lynne Graham - Rio the H is prbly one of LG's nicest H's ever - the other one being Alexio from LG's The Heiress Bride

I loved Heiress Bride. And I've read Italian's Wife but completely forgot about it. drr.

Tycoon's Bride was just okay in my book. It's one of those not bad books but I felt no desire to ever read it again, and I also thought throwing her out for taking a pregnancy test was stupid. And in a boondocks type setting..if her mother was with his brother, that almost makes him her uncle. Her sister is his niece and they marry. That's...disturbing on some level.

If you are talking about the one I thought might be the book Hiker was looking for, I don't remember the name. I think h was Holly and H was Marco, or something like that. She collapsed on the street and he took her in. I remember she was very young, 19 or 20. He was older and he had just broken up with his fiancee. He was a billionaire (of course) and she was dirt poor. IIRC H' former fiancee was a model and she cheated.

I think it might be by Michelle Reid, Lynne Graham, a "classic" HP author. I don't remember well.I think he was a businessman, he was in a limousine when he almost run her over. I remember details here and there. Hopefully someone will recall the name. If I'm not mistaken, the book was published 10 years ago or so.

It's the one Booge mentioned The Italian's Wife (A Mediterranean Marriage) (Harlequin Presents, No. 2235) Lynne Graham

Synopsis:
Will he take a stranger to be his wedded wife? Abandoned by her boyfriend and family after the birth of her son, Holly Sansom collapses in the street. Rio Lombardi, M.D. of Lombardi Industries, comes to her rescue. Rio insists that Holly stay at his luxurious home, and proceeds to lavish her and her baby with all that money can buy. But Rio's emotions are caught off guard by Holly's natural charm and indifference to his wealth. In fact, Holly would make a perfect wife....

Rita - the book your looking for is probably The Italian's Wife by Lynne Graham

That's the book I remembered! Only in Spanish, they changed his name to Marco, don't know why.
