Reader Review: I liked this story because for once both leading characters are equal to each other. The are certain funny turns in the story too. I like the fact that Lynne's characters are passionate, intelligent and strong. That makes the story believeable and so romantic.
Business tycoon and infamous playboy Alexio Christoulakis wasn't the marrying kind. Then one of the most powerful and wealthy men in Greece offers Alexio his daughter's hand in marriage, and Alexio decides that maybe a wife--especially one as compelling as Ione Gakis--might not be a bad idea after all.
Unbeknownst to anyone outside of the Gakis family, Ione was adopted and has been fostered in an abusive and neglectful environment--a desperate prisoner on her tyrannical father's luxurious island. Marriage to Alexio can mean only one thing: escape. And if that means marrying a complete stranger and fleeing to England to find her real family, then the sooner Ione can get that wedding ring on her finger, the better.
But despite his compassion for Ione, Alexio won't tolerate a runaway wife. And he's going to make damn sure Ione never leaves his side--or his bed!

The Heiress Bride
Alexio made no response. On one level, he could not believe that this peculiar conversation was actually taking place. Once he would have laughed in his father's face at the very idea of an arranged marriage. But, for almost two years, Alexio had been living in a hell of grief from which he only escaped when he buried himself in work. In a desperate attempt to obliterate the yawning emptiness inside him, he had flung himself into a series of wild affairs but no miracle recovery had followed. Indeed, if anything, those shallow sexual entanglements had left him with a sour taste in his mouth.
"It is an honour that Minos Gakis should have approached our family with the offer of his daughter," Sander continued with quiet persistence, watching his volatile son with hopeful measuring eyes for his reaction. "He has a very high regard for your business acumen and his health has been troubling him. He needs a son-in-law whom he can trust."
Alexio was grimly amused by that clever speech, which suggested that a marriage arranged between families rather than by the young people concerned was as common an event as it had once been in Greece—for it was anything but. He was also marvelling at how the attention of one of the world's richest men appeared to have blinded his astute father to less palatable truths. "Minos Gakis is an evil bastard and a thug. You know it and I know it."
"Nevertheless, his daughter, Ione, is a well brought-up and decent young woman," Sander continued with determination, convinced that only such a marriage would have...

Ione Gakis, one of the richest young women in the world, yearns for freedom. When her father orders her to marry Greek tycoon Alexio Christoulakis, Ione secretly plans to disappear without a trace on the wedding night. However, this one is a little darker than most of her other stories.
Ione had immature nature As for Ione- always trying to run away, and couldn't face up to anything or anyone! She didn't even seem to want to do anything with her life, didn't seem to have any dreams, hopes, aspirations, nothing! She was like a teenager, But Alexi fill in love very hard although he was refusing to marry her in first realy i don't want to spoil it as it very special and passionate you must read it.
It was a wonderful story that I could not put down even as I didn't want the story to end. I recommend this book highly.

This story was wonderful, funny, warm and very sexy. Ione and Alexio are both forced to marry ...each side for their own family's reason. Ione just wanted to be free and was planning her escape right after the wedding or before her honeymoon...she was not going to stay married to someone who didn't love her no matter how drop dead gorgeous he was. She had little to no love at all from her family her whole life, and she was not going to settle. It was a wonderful story that I could not put down even as I didn't want the story to end. I recommend this book highly.
