Summary

When Constantine Karantinos learns he has an heir he will do anything to claim him. Even if he finds it hard to remember the child's mother - Laura was nothing more than a waitress.

However, by night Constantine still insists she fulfils her bedroom duties...

Did Sharon Kendrick really write this?

Long ago in the 1970s, romance novels used to be like this. With an arrogant, cruel obnoxious hero who berrates and insults the doormat heroine but 3 seconds later he starts to kiss her, not because he likes her, but because he wants to prove to her that he's master. And she, instead of telling him where to go, gives up the fight as soon as he touches her and her 'traitorous body' melts.
One difference, in the 1970s, there was no explicit sexual content. But in this book, the arrogant Greek tycoon starts to grope her very intimately indeed, in the street, outside a tourist hotel in a seaside town. Really????
I couldn't read any more, it was making me angry and sick in equal measures.

More like Constantine's Spinless Baby Mama!

Constantine was crude and arrogant and Laura was a washed-out, sputtering jellyfish. He treated her with contempt and she was helpless controlling her powerful response to him. Yuck! I don't see how this could be anyone's idea of a romance. There is nothing about this man that is even remotely appealing. And it's as though the author went out of her way to make Laura as pathetic as possible. Save yourself the money and the time. This book is awful!
