Bought By The Greek Tycoon - Jacqueline Baird

She gasped as his firm lips trailed up to her ear.

Blowing gently , he added, 'Because, however much you wish it wasn't true, I am your last lover. Not your long-dead husband.

 

I tell ya', this guy has the best lines.

Once Burned
Shattered Trust (Harlequin Presents) - Jacqueline Baird

This was intense like I like my Harlequin Presents. I honestly didn't like Nick at all initially. I totally thought the worst of him. But then there would be moments where he looked so devastated and heartbroken. I sort of guessed what his issue was partway into the book, and that he was trying to push Abby away. I also felt he must be deeply in love with her and that's why he was trying to get them back together. It was heartbreaking to see Nick interact with the son he had rejected four years before. But I could see why Abby didn't trust him and certainly didn't want to fall back in love with him, since it had cost her so much the first time around. This book really makes you believe the hero was a cheater, but hang in there if you don't like cheating. It all turns out well.

I liked that both lead characters are so three-dimensional. You see all their traits, even the ones that aren't as pretty, such as Abby's jealousy of other women. Although that is really understandable, considering the situation. I like that Baird shows Nick at his worst, but allows the reader to gain the ability to think favorably about Nick and believe he loves his family and his wife. He was a very tortured guy and that came across very clearly. I think this is one of the HPs where you can feel just as strongly about the hero and the heroine.

Books like these are why I avidly reach for the older Harlequin Presents. They really bring the emotion and intensity for the reader.

Overall rating: 4.25/5.0 stars

Pregnancy of Revenge by Jacqueline Baird

This book is every bit as stupid as the title indicates and yet  I have read it in its entirety and I am now going to put the time and effort into writing a brief review of it. I know this begs the question, "Liz, WTF is wrong with you?"

 

I am a Harlequin Presents addict.  Usually they cause me to have a brief moment of tearful heartbreak followed by relief that the author managed to contrive a semi-plausible excuse for an HEA. Usually the hero is some sort of despicable ass who gets his comeuppance.

 

Not this time.  Oh no!

“Charlie stayed dumb.”

There could not possibly be a better description of the heroine of this book.  But that's what I get for being a Harlequin Presents addict.
