I am a fan and follower of this authors books, and compared to the bland robotic books normally found. This book had a real depth to the story. Reminded me of the old books from the 90's where sacrifice, suffering and overcoming all odds was the order of the day

Penniless and Purchased

A very sad story but quite riveting....Sophie had more guts & backbone than Nikos though...I think it can be improved by making him mature in his thinking, make him less of a cold, unfeeling, callous corporate raider. Maybe extend the story, by making her get pregnant by him, then making her up & leave him to have her baby on her own. And then, for him to find her a few years later, which, by then, she would have been a successful businesswoman...or something like that. Still left with the feeling that he hadn't completely learnt his lesson.

I found this book's storyline quite different. The heroine actually accepting her error. Wow. I really enjoyed reading this book and for all those die hard romantics like me this is a MUST read book. I don't know why but i kept picturing Nikos as Richard Armitage (lovely). Happy reading

I used to love Julia James books but now find them to be predictable & so found it disappointing.
