the first time, I was a bit torn but I understand it better now The first time through I made some hasty judgements because the hero was so horribly mean at the beginning of the story but it takes a couple of chapters to understand that he had good reason to be, but those reasons had been lies told by the heroine s evil cousin who was trying to blackmail the hero into marriage and he quickly begins to piece it together.Lena is our bluntly honest heroine and she has been treated badly by her cousin since her parents death when she had no choice but to go live with her Cousin s family She wasof a slave maid than anything, living in their unfinished attic, put down and mistreated daily forthan ten years She was even expected to relinguish her small salary for being the maid so the other employees could be paid This was done out of meaness and spitefulnessthere was no financial cause for this and she gave it up willingly so her dear friends, the maids and butlers, could continue to draw the meager salaries they were paid Then we have Alejandro, our hero, whom at the beginning seems to be an unreasonably mean and nasty man Fortunately that doesn t last long Because of Lena s cousin s lies, he was made to believe the worst about her and I could understand why he felt the way he did Lena was also fed lies by the evil cousin which made her think of the hero as a monster Once you re in the second chapter you begin to understand the evilness of the nasty, slutty cousin The H was fed nothing but horrible lies for a year as was the h The evil cousin was actually trying to steal the good cousins baby because she was sure that was the only way to blackmail the H to marry her He didn t want to ever love anyone nor did he want a child and he definitely planned to never marry There was a while that I despised him but when the reasons for him being the way he was came to light, and he had some fairly good reasons, I began to understand him He grew on me and he also changed for the better since he no longer had the burden of the secret he had been keeping since his youth Lena s cousin wanted Alejandro badly She wanted to acquire the title of Duchess and his billions of dollars but she was not able to have children She also knew her cousin was pregnant by the H because he dumped the cousin once he met Lena He had not, however, been intimate with the evil onethank goodness That would have been a little too much sharing for my taste.This turned out to be a great story once I understood Alejandro I enjoyed it but I would have liked a littlehappiness

Unlike most Harlequin Mills Boon, it was written in the first person and I found this shift of perspective rather jarring Perhaps angsty romances aresuited to a 3rd POV I gave up half way through the book Probably a good read for someone who doesn t mind first POV I struggled with this book Unlike most Harlequin Mills Boon, it was written in the first person and I found this shift of perspective

with the heroine The heroine was a clueless Cinderella to her evil cousin Her evil grandmother made the poor orphan live in an attic and sleep in an iron bed with a lumpy mattress for heaven s sake Really, so much great HP goodness Why not a higher rating The wobbly first person narrative I don t mind first person POV, I really don t But the heroine s voice, was all over the place Sincere and full of angst and drama, I could warm to, but then she would lapse into chick lit snarkiness, which didn t fit her character or the story and I would be reminded I was reading OTT ridiculousness rather than being swept away by the story Still, who can resist a hero who view spoiler was the housekeeper s son, but agreed at age 12 to be the duchess s grandson after that boy died in car crash that killed everyone who would know of the switch Since he had broken bones in his face, he got some plastic surgery and presto chango, he s a duke But the secret gnaws and he can never marry or have an heir until he meets the heroine, falls in love, breaks her heart deliberately so the ducal line can die out with honor But then he finds out she is pregnant and finally tracks her down in Mexico with their 5 month old son Fortunately, his seduction skills are up to par and he s able to force the heroine into marriage and into his bed But still the secret gnaws, the OM finds out and threatens to blackmail the hero if the heroine doesn t go away with him There is a car crash where the OM is injured and no one helps him as they are trying to absorb the latest bombshell The grandmother duchess has saved the day with DNA from an old hairbrush of her husband s The previous duke was having an affair with the housekeeper and hero is indeed from the rightful heir to the estate No blackmail needed OM is vanquished HEA hide spoiler This is fun stuff, if you don t mind the first person POV I read Nine Months to Redeem Him first and the villain in this book is the hero in that one, so when I saw his antics in full display here, I was aghast that he would get a book of his own because he was frickin psycho in this one He threatens the heroine, obsessively follows her around, kidnaps her he s rich, handsome, powerful, and the only difference between him and the hero is that the heroine doesn t love him back, ergo he s the bad guy.Lena Carlisle is a Cinderella heroine who lived in I read Nine Months to Redeem Him first and the villain in this book is the hero in that one, so when I saw his antics in full display here, I was aghast that he would get a book of his own because he was frickin psycho in this one He threatens the heroine, obsessively follows her around, kidnaps her he s rich, handsome, powerful, and the only difference between him and the hero is that the heroine doesn t love him back, ergo he s the bad guy.Lena Carlisle is a Cinderella heroine who lived in the attic of her evil cousin, serving as her personal assistant slash slave, while the evil cousin plots to ensnare Alejandro Navarro, the last Duke of Alcazar, for marriage As these things go, Alejandro takes one look at Lena and decides he wants her, instead, so he courts her and seduces her, and gets her pregnant Claudie, the evil cousin, tells Lena that the she and Alejandro will be married and only needed Lena s baby for their family to be complete, so that is why Alejandro seduced her Meanwhile, Claudie tells Alejandro that she and Lena hatched this plan so that Alejandro will marry Claudie and Lena won t let Alejandro see the baby unless he marries Claudie To escape Alejandro s wrath, Lena has run away with the help of a friend Edward St Cyr, a ruthless billionaire who has been flying her all over the world so Alejandro won t find her and her baby Of course, Edward isn t doing this for altruistic reasons As he tells Lena, she needs to get over the Spanish bastard because it s time that Lena belonged to him Lena has been living in a house in Mexico managed by shell companies owned by Edward, but Alejandro has found her at last and forces her baby to take a DNA test and commands her to marry him Lena tells Alejandro she needs to go to London first before they go to Spain, so she could collect her legacy Alejandro thinks Lena is just there to get money from Claudie or something Claudie made Lena s life to difficult, so she would move out and Lena wouldn t get her inheritance from her grandmother but then he discovers that her so called legacy are actually a bunch of old family albums from her happy childhood with her parents He also finds out while she was living with Claudie, she stayed in the attic and that she is beloved by all servants because she is very kind to them Alejandro starts to realize that maybe he was wrong about Lena all this time and it was only due to Claudie s machinations that they were torn apart Lena tells him that she will stay with him and marry him, provided that he is true to her and won t lie to her, but Alejandro says he can t promise that he won t lie to her now and in the future Lena is broken hearted because she doesn t want to fall in love with Alejandro again, but he is so good to her and the baby, plus he has an adorable grandmother What is he lying about Does he have four dozen mistresses Alejandro was adamant about not getting married and having kids before Lena got pregnant and he had told her so She told him she loved him, so he panicked and left her What is different now I d never really come across an HP told from the first person POV before, so this was definitely different It kind of had a Last night, I dreamt of Manderley feel to it We even get a travelogue of Alhambra, just like the old fashioned Mills and Boon novels, and that was neat because of the lush, flowing descriptions Lena is not an annoying heroine and though she is susceptible to Alejandro, she seems to have her own mind It s also a nice change of pace because there is no head hopping between the hero and the heroine and that s one of the things that drive me nuts about reading the old HPs This book reads like a Mexican telenovela complete with kidnappings, blackmail, and bitchy cousins Lena is truly a Cinderella figure who was maltreated by her evil cousin, gets her birth right stolen, and then swept off her feet by the dashing, handsome duke She was even living in the attic I wouldn t be surprised if she had talking birds and mice that kept her company up there.When I started reading this book, I thought it would go into some flashbacks of how Lena and Alejandro met and fell in love before evil cousin Claudie threw a monkey wrench into the mix, but there s none of that There s not even a scene or two of her adventuring with Edward St Cyr, considering he supposedly jetted her around the world in an effort to get her away from Alejandro I thought maybe there was a previous book I missed or something and this was a continuation I would have liked to see scenes of Edward and Lena forming a friendship because hey, why does she trust this guy so much When Lena and Alejandro get to London, the first person Lena contacts is Edward St Cyr, so he could help her get away from Alejandro This guy basically drops everything on hand just so he could get to Lena and Lena didn t believe that Edward had any feelings for her Girl, a guy like that won t do nothing for free for a lady who looks like you I m not blaming Lena for Edward s crazy behavior or anything, but if she calls him asking to be saved and he drops everything just to get to her, and for her to say Ooops, never mind, I d go a little nuts, too But Edward has his own issues and his own book for that.As for Alejandro s big secret, I don t know if I ve read one too many Harlequin Presents or something, but his reason for not wanting a wife and kids, kind of made sense to me He could have found a better way to deal with it, instead of torturing his poor wife with his brooding and secretive act, but I understand that he thought he couldn t trust her because it s a pretty big secret that could potentially ruin the lives of many people, not just his and his grandma I actually really enjoyed this book The first person POV was refreshing, the sex scenes were hot, and the hero wasn t an all the way an alpha hole Oh, he had his moments, but when he was sweet to the heroine, he was adorable Plus he sings to her in a Spanish cantina with a guitar melt
