I don't care for the heroine in this story....way too much crying. Seems to be blowing hot and cold throughout the book. Certainly not my favorite book by this author.

i really like howard's novels, but this one was disappointing. the hero is such an overbearing, manipulative jerk, i'm not even sure how the heroine falls for him in the first place. she's supposed to feisty, but she's crying and bemoaning her love for the dude at every turn.

Jessica Stanton, a financially independet widower, is the only woman to oppose Nikolas Constantinos, Greek billionare. Because of his uncontrolled response to her and her defiance, Niko belives it is fine to treat Jessica like a disobidient dog. The only repulsive thing he did not do to this character is physically beat her, and truthfully I don't think that would have shocked me as some of the things he did throughout the book.
This book, although it is appalling, demonstrates how much Howard has drawned and pushed her female characters into confident roles in her recent works

I love most books from Linda Howard, but not this one! The Hero is an overbearing, mean jerk, who's attentions I would say are basically harassment and stalking, someone who doesn't know the meaning of the word NO, no matter how many times she kept saying it. I don't see how the heroine could have fallen in love with him. And then, the there is the heroine...for someone who supposedly was a woman of the world, self-assured and independently wealthy, she sure didn't show a back bone at all. I am glad this book was a loaner instead of spending my money on it. This is an outdated story written back in the 80's and it shows.

I should never have finished this book. The heroine was terrible. She took abuse that should never be taken by anyone. I know it is a romance...but...I doubt I will read this author again.

Greek playboy worth billions, intended to conclude the business deal with The Black Widow as quickly as possible. Love hadn't been part of his plan. A hot affair or a one night stand was all he'd allow. Because love would lead to marriage. And marriage to Jessica, a woman with a scandalous past, could ruin him.

Yes he was overbearing and unkind but she made no effort to win his trust of understanding so he did make sense to me. Both characters were flawed but once
they learn mutual trust they will work it out.

I love everything by Linda Howard.

This must be an early Linda Howard tale. I really disliked the submissive/dominant nature of the relationship of the two main characters. She cries A LOT. And he is frightening and horrible. It was too unbelievable that they would have a happy ever after ending. But all Linda Howard books do have the happy ending.

Greek billionaire playboy Nikolas Constantinos meets Jessica Stanton, newly widowed and naively demure, and fireworks go off. Constantinos relentlessly pursues and Stanton resists until their passion explodes. Eliza Foss reads this formula romance in her soft, seductive tones, accurately reflecting the mood of the book. Her soft tones continue through the violent passion and strong emotions, creating a jarring juxtaposition of love and lust. Howard's writing moves the story along, and Foss's performance reflects the peaks and valleys of love found, love lost and love rekindled.

Greek billionaire Nikolas intended to conclude his deal with Jessica Stanton -- the Black Widow-- as quickly as possible. But he's a hot headed greek and wow - he shows it. Jessica has a scandalous past and all of it brings lots of twists and turns.
