They wanted Callie's child! It was a staggering suggestion and she couldn't credit that Alex Terzakis could be serious. Alex took her silence as encouragement. He studied her as a cat studied a mouse, calculation written all over him.
Nikos would be greatly loved. He cut her off, ignored her letters, allowed you to humiliate her and let her go through a very difficult pregnancy without any support I understand that Nikos also shares that blood group,' he volunteered smoothly, seemingly unaware of the gross offence he was offering by admitting that he had taken up all the evidence available before conceding that Nicky was his brother's child.
We must consider my nephew's future' 'Nicky's f-future is with me! Sarah was so appalled by his estimation of her character that she said nothing. Think of that. You have had a hard life. What age are you? Thirty, thirty-one? Dear heaven, did she look that old? Money can download beauty.
With concentrated effort and professional advice, you could be quite attractive' 'You don't say. Although she had few illusions about her looks,any she might have had were being insensitively ripped to shreds.
You could travel. You're a clever woman. You could probably find yourself a husband. Desperate for a man Clearly that was how Alex Terzakis saw her. He was Greek to the backbone. Instead he left her when Callie was pregnant. His older brother, Alex, never believed that she was pregnant and offered Sarah and Callie money to leave Damos alone.
Here I would like to mentioned that although Alex is a typical Greek name, I have only met Greek men that are called Damos in Harlequin books.
Almost no Greek uses this name since B. Unfortunately Callie dies in childbirth.
Damos never appears to see his son and Alex after being sure that the little boy is truly his nephew, he demands to take him away from his aunt Sarah. Alex is last person that Sarah wants to see. He was Greek to the backbone. What Callie called 'unreconstructed man', what Sarah called a Neanderthal primitive. If Alex is so down on the lower market, yet thinks he can run amok with demands to download Callie's child because he is family, he can put himself instead of his money on the line and marry her to have a part in Nicky's life.
Alex fusses a lot, but we can see the gleam of the Lurve Force Mojo in his eye and he agrees to the proposition. As this is HPlandia and no H is willingly roped to the marital stakes, Alex vows that Sarah will be humiliated and begging for a divorce before he is done with her. Then Alex will kick her back to the gutter she crawled out of and keep Nicky for himself.
Sarah doesn't care, as Alex's wife, Nicky gets two parents and a good home and Sarah really loves Nicky, she wants him to have all the advantages she couldn't give Callie and who cares what the Nematode King of the Sewer thinks.
So after an insulting pre-nup, a mini shopping spree and makeover, a registry office in the darkest corner of London and few more insults later, Alex and Sarah are married. Sarah busts Alex's bubble rather quickly, he tells her how happy he is she tarted herself up for him and Sarah looks at him like he has grown another head. She has to gently explain that she spent a fortune on clothes and a makeover because she wanted to never embarrass Nicky or give him reason to be ashamed of his mother.
Alex about keels over, because as he claims, " I expected you to show up with half a dress for what you spent. Alex lives in France and it is rumored that he has a mistress in Paris and a mistress in Athens, but Sarah doesn't care. She does care about the horrible nanny that Alex hired, but in the rush of arrival at Alex's house, Sarah is astounded to meet Alex's stepmother Vivian.
Vivian is a firecracker, Alex told her Nicky was his and Sarah's child to protect his little brother. We soon learn that apparently Vivian and Alex's father had a very tempestuous marriage. Alex's father was unfaithful and Vivian played his own game against him, until the two of them finally settled down into wedded bliss. Sarah is a little shocked to hear that.
Surely Alex and Damon's father and Vivian should have had the good sense to keep their marital difficulties away from the children? But it appears that they did not and the damage the jealousies and games caused seemed to have impacted Alex to a great degree, no wonder he is always going on about lying, manipulating women. Sarah becomes even more conscience stricken when it is revealed that Androula, Damon's wife, is Vivian's daughter AND Alex reveals that Callie knew Damon was married when she and he moved in together.
Sarah is mortified and starting to really regret her temper fueled demand that Alex marry her. Even more so when she learns that Alex had initially planned to marry his good friend Elise. Tho Vivian warns that it was a cold blooded arrangement to combine two ancient families and build a dynasty.
Vivian is not a fan of Elise, she claims she is too aristocratically cold, but Sarah feels even worse for ruining Alex's plans for his life. Sarah is a unicorn groomer and is overwhelmed by the experience, only to crash big time as Alex says some more insulting things and storms off, not be seen except from a distance for two weeks. Sarah and Nicky settle into a very quiet and happy existence.
The nanny is history after a fight with Alex and Alex's chateau staff fall over themselves to help Sara too. So for her, life is just peachy until Alex comes home early one day when Sarah is spending time with Nicky.
He tries to get Sarah to spend some time with him, they are after all married. But Sarah pleads a headache and tries to blow Alex off. She can't get over how much her hormones riot any time Alex gets near her and she wants to keep her self respect. Alex loses it and starts demanding Sarah spend time with him, she reluctantly does it and makes it quite clear that she just doesn't give a damn. In a very funny moment, Alex claims he wants kids and Sarah suggests IVF, cause she doesn't want to sleep with him.
The next day Alex has a diamond necklace delivered for Sarah and she feels paid off. Elise picks this most inauspicious time to introduce herself.
Elise acts very concerned about Sarah and Sarah is suspicious. That suspicion turns to utter shock as Elise indicates that Alex has been very publicly womanizing every night with a different woman, in a very public bid to humiliate his new wife.
Sarah keeps her bottle tho and smiling like a shark, tells Elise that Vivian did tell her how very impressed Sarah would be to meet Elise and she very deeply is. Sarah then calls the butler to escort Elise out of the house.
Elise is upset, but Sarah can't get over the gall the woman has to confront a woman she has never even met about Alex's womanizing.
Sarah gets all the tabloid papers she hadn't seen for the last weeks and then Alex calls. Sarah is beyond furious, hurt and very humiliated and she uses one of my favorite LG words ever when Alex asks her how she feels. Alex is obviously expecting some cute kittenish cuddle talk and Sarah tells him that she is absolutely gobsmacked. Sarah then goes on to relate that she saw her first newspapers in 13 days and while everyone else knew what Alex had been up to, she did not.
Now Sarah vows that the last name of Terzakis will be a by-word for Scarlet Woman and whatever Vivian may have done to Alex's father, Sarah will do even more to Alex and he will be on his knees for a divorce when she is done. Sarah slams down the phone and storms out for a night on the town with Vivian. As Sarah gets progressively drunker, she lets on that Alex lied to Vivian when he told her that Nicky was his and Sarah's son - she explains about Callie and Damon.
Vivian admits she had already guessed it was something like that. But forewarned is forearmed and now Vivian will be better prepared to support her daughter when she eventually confides in her. Then Vivian pops up with a handsome escort for Sarah, one that she hired for the night. She also stages a paparazzi picture, so the world can see that Sarah has no intentions of playing the humiliate wife.
Sarah is seriously drunk now and leaves.
She doesn't want to go back to Alex's house, so she just has the chauffeur drive around and finally gets home around dawn. Alex is panicked and furious, he claims he never did anything with those women, he was just having a temper tantrum. Sarah has never been drunk before, so she just goes to bed.
Only to be awakened by Alex the next morning, Sarah and Vivian's escort made the papers and Sarah quietly explains.
Alex admits that he misjudged her and now he wants to try and make the marriage work. He loves Nicky and thinks that he and Sarah could be compatible. Sarah wants to go the divorce route, but Alex guilts her with Nicky until she gives in and says she will stay until Nicky is Alex tries to pull out out all of the stops and spends eons of time trying to get Sarah to talk and build a relationship with him. Sarah doesn't like it, mainly because she feels that Alex is just doing his duty and while she is now wildly in love with him, he sees her as a responsibility.
Sarah feels inhibited in bed with Alex and she is worried he is contemplating an affair with Elise in frustration. Then Sarah finds out that Damon did send money to support Callie and Nicky and all of Sarah's illusions about Callie are shattered.
Damon did try to do a little of the right thing and Callie continually lied about everything. Alex claims it is because Sarah's moral standards are very high and others might have a hard time meeting them. Sarah instantly takes that as a criticism of her inability to respond to Alex in bed because she deeply believes that if you don't love someone, you shouldn't be sleeping with them.
Then she realizes that she made this bargain herself and that Alex is really trying, even if he isn't in love with her. So Sarah's grand plan o' seduction is on, she heard Alex arrange a rendezvous with Elise in Paris for lunch. Sarah rushes off to get some scanty knickers and a coat dress to hide what she is wearing underneath.
She shows up Alex's office and locks the door and drops the dress and hopes like mad that Alex will take over after Sarah delivers a very roofie kiss. Alex doesn't dissapoint and Sarah has a marvelous time and resolves to play the office drop-in sex bombe card every month if it will keep Alex from straying. Alex is delighted, he skips out on his date with Elise and he and Sarah are ready to lurve it all up when Damon and Androula show up at Alex's house.
Damon finally confesses he panicked and lied about Callie being a tart and admits that he really did propose to Callie and Sarah had been telling the truth all along. Alex has a huge ranty moment, which Sarah puts a stop to, after all Callie was equally complicit and Damon is never going to grow up.
Androula proves that she and Damon are a matched set when she waylays Sarah in the hall and tells her she doesn't really mind about Nicky and that it was all worth it cause she got Damon back. I think LG was trying to show Androula is a nice person, but I was pretty shocked that Androula would even say anything to the sister of the woman who died because her beloved husband was piece of excrement and couldn't keep it in his pants. Alex finally kicks everyone out and he and Sarah have another Purple Moment of Bliss.
As a surpise the next day, which is Sarah's birthday she forgot, Alex gives Sarah a portrait of Callie. Elise painted it and that is why Alex was meeting her, it seems Elise really is just a friend. This one is really well done and it is wickedly funny at parts.
But there is a really dark undertone that isn't obvious right away and that undertone is what puts this on the HPlandia required reading list. The bedrock of HPlandia, at this point in it's history, is that the heroines are going to be chaste and usually they are going to be virgins. In HPlandia, virginity is the magic ticket and get out of jail free card that gets you get the guy, the money and the fabulous lifestyle - but you have to follow the HP rules to get it.
Callie and Sarah are both virgins. Except for one thing, Callie knowingly gave up her get out of jail free card and unicorn grooming license to a married man. She conspired in betraying his wife and for that, plus accepting his cash to support herself and her child when he abandoned her, the punishment is literally death. Callie broke the rules and she had to die, even tho she was exactly what the typical HP h is supposed to be. Sarah does suffers greatly in public humiliation for her crime, but because her main motivation was to provide a loving and secure home for an orphaned child and only a little for grief fueled revenge, Sarah gets the big sparkly rainbow unicorn and kitten HEA.
It is kind of chilling to really think about what motivations are behind the characterizations in a lot of these stories.
Tho I really do love most of the wacky, crazy characters and actions in HPlandia, this one kind of hit me pretty hard. Callie was really in love with Damon and he certainly did his part in corrupting her, but that is the dark undercurrent that flows through these stories that LG brilliantly points out and warns against. The lurve mojo force is strong and it isn't a crime to give into it. But if you do go there in HPlandia, be aware that knowingly succumbing to a taken man is a crime that will get you banished forever and another more, worthy heroine will step in to take your place.
Anne Mather aside, the punishments for lapses in HPlandia are fatal, so keep that in the back of your mind as you wander amidst it's byways and as always, may you have an eventful and entertaining HP voyage if you run into this. Sep 10, Tina rated it liked it Shelves: This is one of those really irritating romance novel about a shrew, who spends half of the book screaming her hatred of the hero, until his lips touches hers, of course.
Then she instantly turns into a wet noodle. A mindless, brainless fool regardless of anything who later turns into your typical Harlequin doormat.
And if that doesnt turn your stomach, she decides she's in love completely out of the blue. She willingly puts up with and forgives him for everything all because she decides she's This is one of those really irritating romance novel about a shrew, who spends half of the book screaming her hatred of the hero, until his lips touches hers, of course.
When she finds out that the hero is planning to sleep with another woman misunderstanding , her first thought is to worry about him leaving her, instead of revenge, or dumping HIM.
I just wanted to shake some sense into this stupid doormat. She was an idiotic, TSTL, clingy mess of a heroine. It also didn't help that I found her love for her nephew obsessive, unhealthy, selfish and self serving. I just didn't care for this heroine at all. I did not read the last 10 pages. Jan 10, Julz rated it really liked it Shelves: Probably a 4. This gist of the story is that the heroine's sister gets pregnant and promptly dies after childbirth it was rather sad.
The heroine and the hero then start fighting over the baby. The bio dad, the H's brother, is still alive but he's not in the picture because he's a big loser.
I thought it would ge Probably a 4. I thought it would get old but it was rather enjoyable at times. I'm so surprised that many people didn't like this one. I thought it was great.
It had so many of the elements I love in my trashy harleys: I even found myself misting up a time or two don't judge me ;D. I thought it was a fun ride. The H did get pretty mean, but if you consider his motives, I thought he was pretty forgivable. The h's insecurities got a little tiresome after a while, but I could see why she thought she was dirt.
I think this one is relatively safe for those avoiders of hard subjects out there. But it might be more to the taste of those with an inclination for the big bad alpha.

Holy carumba. Jan 07, Megzy rated it really liked it Shelves: I saw some other readers thought of Sarah as a doormat; I did not. She was self sacrificing with her younger sister but she basically raised her and it actually made her hatred for Alex and his family much more believable.
The story begins when Sarah's eighteen years old sister has just died while giving birth to her baby boy. Alex Terzakis is there at the hospital demanding complete custody of his new nephew. Alex believes that Sarah's sister 4. Alex believes that Sarah's sister had been nothing but a gold digger, sleeping around and looking for an easy meal ticket.
The battle is on between two strong characters. I just loved the way Sarah tore into Alex. She gave as good as she got and he deserved it. View all 4 comments. Apr 11, Kiki rated it it was ok Shelves: He was a disgusting swine who actually believes he has the right to rape her because they're married. Also told her he won't stray because she's a mistress material herself! Was that a compliment? Also, calls her a slut, gold digger and fake, and screams at her.
Then calls her puritan and too moral and prude and screams at her! Confusion and contradiction right there. Don't get me started on his double standards. She was just too much to deal with.
She was all talk. He rapes her, she melts. He humiliates her, then seduces her, she melts. After months of abuse, insult and public humiliation he tells her she's no good at bed and she thinks he's going to his mistress and instead of kicking him on the balls SHE seduces HIM, this is while he STILL believes his brother is an angel her sister seduced and told her in no uncertain terms that they'd never have married if it wasn't for the kid, and he wants her there till the kids 18!
And he wonders why she's not making an effort in bed! The whole thing was a mess! View 1 comment. May 01, Jenny rated it really liked it. Crazy intense angsty book! The heroine was fierce and totally immune to the hero for most part of the book and even though she said some harsh things I never thought she was mean or immature and a brat like other heroines.
Sarah had every reason to be angry and bitter for her loss and her thirst for revenge seemed reasonable at first. Only when she realized how badly she had misjudged her husband she let herself open her heart Wow!
Only when she realized how badly she had misjudged her husband she let herself open her heart and love him the way he deserved to be loved. View 2 comments. Wow did I love this book. Just read it and you will not be disappointed!!! It was great how she actually really told him what's what! You go girl. What the heck did I just read? In all fairness I only spent 99c for this so I didn't have anything to lose but my dollar.
He touched her and she became weak and pathetic. And the hero? Parading women all through Paris, taking 1. Parading women all through Paris, taking them to dinner, dancing, etc, etc, the day after they got married so the paparazzi could take their pictures so she would see them because she ignored his stupid ass. He mistreated her, insulted her, told her she wasn't a good lay not in those words and tried to forced himself on her but she easily gave up her fight when he touched her.
I don't know if all the Harlequin's heroes are like this because I only have read another book and he was exactly like this one was.. An ass. And she thinks he's going to cheat on her with the woman that he supposedly wanted to marry and he didn't want the wife to find out that he was seeing her but instead she became stupid and she seduced him so he wouldn't have gone to the ow for sex which he didn't btw.
The ow painted a portrait so he was seeing her to get the portrait but at this point I was skimming so I can't tell what portrait was about. All the misunderstandings, the secrets, the lies!! I love it all. LG is always my favorite writer Somewhere I have read this story. Translate so poorly by unknown publisher.

Feb 06, Jacqueline J rated it it was amazing Shelves: I've had this book for a while now and have held off on reading it because the heroine sounded rather harsh. I actually liked it rather well. There was a lot of meat to the story. Oh well. I enjoyed this one. The heroine really stuck up for herself.
The hero had legit reasons to be nasty towards her. He had been lied to but in I've had this book for a while now and have held off on reading it because the heroine sounded rather harsh.
He had been lied to but in a way which anyone would have believed. Emotions believable overall. Just a fine example of LG at her best. Apr 11, Mou rated it really liked it Shelves: I did like the book. Alex and Sarah's chemistry was good. What I didn't like is that Sarah forgave Demon to easily.
He should be punished for what he did to poor Callie. I really felt bad for Callie. Mar 31, Glire rated it it was ok Shelves: May 13, Lakshmi C rated it liked it. The starting of this book made me think of a thunderstorm. It was intense and incredible. Lots of accusations, grief, fabrications, name calling flying around unchecked. It was like a train wreck, horrible to watch but yet, somehow I was rooted to the spot.
Seriously, I could pass for a tree. A shocked, wide eyed tree Sarah was angry about the untimely death of her sister, Alex wanted to provide a secure future to Nicky. They argued and angrily took a momentous decision without thinking it o The starting of this book made me think of a thunderstorm.
They argued and angrily took a momentous decision without thinking it over. This is where we get to see them both suffer over their hasty decision.
