    2. Well, well, well. Sara Craven wrote a Regency House Party novel and forgot to tell Harlequin Presents. Not that that is a bad thing. This was an enjoyable slow-burn story with a dollop of drama at the end.The story opens with the hero's valet - I mean butler - waking him up to inform him that his aunt is on her way over and he should get the married woman in his bed out of the apartment ASAP. The hero has a hangover and is regretting his one night stand. He regrets it even more when his aunt use [...]

    3. Poor heroine. I don’t know which I feel more sorry for her: the fact that she went to Umbria and was stranded at the villa for over a week just minutes away from Assisi, or that the sexually experienced Conte Smarm Bucket who sleeps with married women and is stupid enough to get blackmailed into seducing our little sweetheart by his viper of an aunt is destined to be her H.The h has agreed to be a pretend fiancee to a mamma’s boy who wants him to marry a wealthy heiress. Mamma’s boy vipero [...]

    4. Count Alessio spends the night with a boring woman, and wow it’s so annoying trying to get her to leave the next morning. He just manages, and then his auntie shows up, with this crazy scheme. Alessio is to seduce the English girl his cousin is bringing home, or auntie will tell the boring woman’s husband about her hook up with Alessio. Alessio agrees to this crazy scheme, even though boring woman is really boring, because the husband doesn’t deserve to find out about it That Way.It’s a [...]

    5. Apart from the cracker beginning and a really sweet ending, it’s a slow sleepy read. Nothing much happens for pages at length but it has its moments.The H is the surprise package. Unlike most SC Hs, he’s actually a nice guy and not quite the unprincipled amoral toad he starts out as.Yes, he’s the kind of guy who sleeps around with wives of acquaintances, if not friends. And then lets himself be tamely blackmailed into an even more reprehensible schemes by his scheming aunt (Break up my son [...]

    6. Okay the opening scene in this book is the H in bed with a MARRIED woman after a night of sex. They played Strip Poker and then he poked her. Plus he cheated at the game. I was like no way am I going to like this book ever. But surprise, surprise, I did. I just have to block that scene from my mind because I hate seeing an H in bed with anyone but the h. He hadn't met her yet so I don't know why I hate stuff like that. But I do. Well, his evil Aunt shows up just as he is trying to get her to lea [...]

    7. Couldn't get past the first chapter finding hero in a married woman's bed.It's just me.Plus, the whole plot seems confusing right now.

    8. The story is based around Italian Count Alessio who after being caught being involved with a married woman by his vile Aunt is blackmailed by her to seduce her son's girlfriend in order to break them up. Said vile Aunt has arranged for her son to marry the daughter of one of her (rich) friends. If Alessio doesn't do this then his aunt will spill about the affair and cause a massive scandal.Meanwhile, Laura has agreed to go on holiday to Italy with Paolo (the son!) and pretend to be involved with [...]

    9. This was such a fun read. I really liked this one. Although the ability of hero to stop mid-process was kinda surreal. :) I liked both hero and heroine they are both really nice likable people contrary to those relatives of his. I also like how during the narrative everyone succumbed to Laura's charms. Starting from Caio and to Emilia. And Alessio, of course. I wonder however if (view spoiler)[it was necessary to make Paolo so very bad? Those final touch were extreme and quite awful. I'm not sur [...]

    10. The heroine agreed to play the part of lover to the heroes brother but it all backfired when she met the hero. Almost immediately she fell head over heels for him and while trying to put up a resistance, she just couldn't. When the hero agreed to try and take the heroine away from his cousins clutches, he had no idea it would be quite so hard. She put up a reluctant fight and even though he desperately wanted her, he was patient, waiting for his opportunity.When the hero and heroine came togethe [...]

    11. Hero has a mistress who is married. His aunt threatens to make the affair public unless he manages to seduce the girl her son is bringing home. Hero agrees. He will seduce Laura so as to keep his aunt quiet but Laura is sweet and perfect and he falls for her. He tries to be noble but eventually he can't resist her. When Laura finds out his scheme all hell breaks loose. Very enjoyable read. Good angst, likable characters and great chemistry between hero and heroine. Epilogue could have been bette [...]

    12. 4.5 stars loved it loved it absolutely loved it but I wish there was an epilogue with a cute baby .but that's ok ♡

    13. A good read.Alessio sleeps with a boring married woman not realizing how much this is going to cost him: 1. He can't ger rid of her2. His aunt finds out & blackmails him3. He ends up hurting an innocent woman4. He feels disgusted & shameful5. And it will all come back to haunt himAlessio after meeting his victim can't but be charmed and intriqued by her. He quickly forgets what his mission was by justifying how he feels about Laura. Passions and emotions he has never experienced soon ove [...]

    14. The kind of goofiness I expect in a HP. But I spent a good chunk of the book wanting to rewrite one of the secondary characters (the cousin).

    15. Un personaggio profondamente antipatico fa un tiro mancino al nipote, costringendolo a sedurre la ragazza dell’ altro nipote che sarebbe promesso a un’ulteriore fanciulla. Con dei cognomi italiani improponibili e mai sentiti. Ma anche no.

    16. Le livre aurait été nettement meilleur si l'héroïne était un tout petit peu plus fine et intelligente. elle a des réactions que l'on ne comprend pas du tout

    17. About 10 years ago I read a lot of books by this author and loved them. Some more than others. Of course they were cheesy and predictable but that made me love them even more. I wasn't reading for high art. I was looking for a nice steady story that I could devour in an afternoon. I overindulged in romance and stopped reading the genre for years. When I saw this book by one of my favorite authors and I could get it for free I grabbed it. This book was awful. I honestly don't know if I disliked t [...]

    18. Me irrito esta historia, no digo que no la disfrute solo que el protagonista se deja mangonear muy tontamente, y ella se somete muy fácil, la verdad se me hizo tedioso tanto drama pero nunca dejo un Harlequin a medias, al final pude suspirar y hay escenas que hacen que el corazón lata con fuerza. Soy muy cursi
