    1. "Beware: The Pervert"* A thousand thanks to Booklover for providing such a perfect, highly appropriate title for this story.Everything's in place right now!* * * SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! * * *I do not intend to use formatting in order to hide spoilers for one reason, and one reason only - if you have any (and by any I mean one) even partially smart cell in your brain, you will not read this book. Unless, of course, you wish to write an amusing review, in which case I'll applaud your effort [...]


    2. Beware The Beast is right. This is one of those books where some of the plot points were so far out there, you wonder if it wasn't a passive-aggressive move by the author to get back at the publisher. ("Rush me will you? Tell me my stories don't have enough action, eh? Well, how about this beauty then?" ;D) And this one does have one beauty of a WTF?!? moment, several actually . I checked some of the other reviews and, yes, there were definitely those who were outraged, particularly at the motiv [...]


    3. Older hero blackmails 18 year old heroine into marrying him, and he wants an heir. Her father was a gambler and he was in debt to hero so heroine must pay for her father's sins. He takes her to his Greek island and there their MOC becomes real. But they are both in denial and that keeps them apart till the end. I liked this hero. He was hard but he was vulnerable and it was obvious to me he cared a lot about his wife. He is hurt by her hatred and he tries to stay away from her. Heroine was ok bu [...]


    4. 3.5 stars.Well this one was about a love 8 years in the making. He wanted her when she was only 12 yuck but he was going to wait for her to grow up. Then, he bought her from her dad.He bought her to be his baby mama after she could leave. His plan was to have her have his baby then he would get a nurse for it. He wanted to be free of any commitment, she was just an incubator. Not really a good way to start a relationship. She was young and scared and he did push her into a physical relationship [...]


    5. It was funny reading this "contemporary romance" 36 years later. With the Hi-Fi and culotte suits, I was transported back in time. While this was supposed to be a bit of a spin off of beauty and the beast, I felt like I couldn't get over the fact that this 40 yr old man blackmailed an 18 yr old girl into marriage and sex. It doesn't matter that he turned out to be honorable from the beginning. It just didn't sit right with me, so I had a hard time with the romance and the whole HEA when the situ [...]


    6. The hero forced the heroine to marry him and produce an heir because her father owned him money from gambling debts. Since he died and couldn't pay them, she would pay for her fathers crimes with marriage and her body. Little did she know they were both falling in love with each other.The book was alright but the hero was kind of an asshole. I mean she's pregnant in half of the book and he's a total dick to her, doesn't consider her feelings. It made me sad reading that. The heroine was quite th [...]



    7. My first ever M&B so it will always hold special memories for me. I was under 10 when it was written and I think around 16 when I read it. I remember crying when the hero left her on the island! Every teenager's fantasy to be swept away to another country where she doesn't speak the language isn't it? On a side note, I knew someone back then, she was 13 and went from UK to Greece to marry her 30+ y/o boyfriend (navy man). Her mother allowed her to go! Marriages of older men to much younger w [...]


    8. The 70's were sure differentAlex and Charlotte were hateful characters and their relationship was dull and depressing. I despised Alex and wasn't keen on Charlotte either. The whole thing was just exhausting and bad.



    9. Oh, this book is so much fun! It was published in 1976, when I was still officially a toddler and looking all cute in whatever plaid outfits my mom put me in. There are so many icky things happening here that just don't cut it in today's modern age, that make this book a pile of "ack!" A 20 year age gap. Financial and emotional blackmail of a grieving 20-year-old. Forced marriage for childbirth. The list goes on. But, hell, this was 1976, and concessions for the times should be made. After all, [...]


    10. Esse livro li há vários atrás, Anne Mather , foi uma autora que fez parte de minha adolescência. E este me marcou muito porque sempre gostei do tema homem mais velho. Alex Faulkner, um homem rico e poderoso, que por conta dos negócios que tem com o pai de Charlotte, força-a a se casar com ele. Só isso é o bastante para que a rebelde Charlotte, passe a odiá-lo. Alex leva Charlotte para a ilha dele e lhe diz que deseja ter um filho. Embora se recusando a princípio a se entregar a ele, Ch [...]


    11. I don't know why I like these May-December harlequins that were published before I was even born. I do have to say, though, that for these heroes being so much older than their heroines, they sure do tend to fuck it up when it comes to relationships. I mean, shouldn't past experiences make it easier for them. Plus, they always have the inability to be honest about their feelings. At least until the end of the book when the poor (very young) heroine is finally enlightened and free of the torture [...]


    12. Tamamk önce itiraf etmeliyim ki ilişkilerde yaş farkı 10'dan fazla olunca durumu acayip anormal bulabiliyorum burada ise aralarında neredeyse 20 yaş var ve hikayenin erkek kahramı hiçte yaşlı gibi hissetmedim.bu iyi.Harika bir hikayeydi.Kitabın orginal ismi harika ama türkiyedeki ismi de uyumlu sayılıra orginali tercih ederim.


    13. Note to self - do not read. Other reviews make the story sound ridiculous. **spoilers**Heroine forced into marriage, pregnant after one episode of bad sex, premature birth with somehow perfect timing and then we find out that the hero has been in love with her since he was 33 and she was 12.



    14. أب راهن علي ابنته لتقع بأيد الرجل الذي اعتبرها من ممتلكاته >_<


    15. Good story but hero is a PERV! Lots of angst, secrets and misunderstandings. Typical classic HP. Still a good read though.
