Thoughts about books from a romance addict.

The Greek’s Bridal Bargain by Melanie Milbourne

on August 20, 2014

What tickled me: The hero swims with dolphins!

What ticked me off: The heroine is so obnoxious, I would not have been unduly distressed if she had swum with the fishes.

Who might like it: Fans of devoted heroes.

The classic mode for a Harlequin Presents is an innocent heroine being unfairly judged by the hero. This reverses that, with a heroine who is often pretty awful, and a hero who constantly forgives and excuses her. (He puts on a show of being out for revenge against her family, but is pretty much a marshmallow underneath.) It’s all kind of thin, but I liked the trope reversal.
