Description

Lily couldn’t believe her luck when she met Rauf Kasabian in the exclusive London bar where she worked and found herself the object of this charming, wealthy Turkish tycoon’s affection

Lily couldn’t believe her luck when she met Rauf Kasabian in the exclusive London bar where she worked and found herself the object of this charming, wealthy Turkish tycoon’s affection. But when Rauf witnessed Lily leaving a hotel with another man, his fierce jealousy drove him back to Turkey, with a vow never to see her again. Two years later, Lily finds Rauf and together they discover that their passion still burns. Even though he has his suspicions about this outstandingly beautiful woman, Rauf decides that she must become his brid. .

in the months to come! Lynne Graham. On what grounds? That her family should choose her as messenger had to be the ultimate insult! In receipt of that bewildering lack of response from a tycoon whose ruthless intolerance for dishonest business practice was legendary, Serhan Mirosh regarded his employer with anxious eyes. Had he himself overreached his powers in taking instant punitive action in the affair?

The plot surrounding Lily's scheming relative (there's almost always one in a Lynne Graham book!) concluded on a satisfying, if rather convenient, conclusion.

SPOILERS abound

Reviewers prepare me for this besides it’s Lynne Graham (side eye to her rare creeps "Virgin on Her Wedding Night", the vicious "Bride for Real", the unloving "Greek Tycoon, Inexperienced Mistress", etc).

There are many of the standard issues from an LG romance, but the anomalies far outweigh the tropes. The basics: the H sees the h after several years and goes into evil tycoon wealthy businessman revenge mode because he thinks she’s a big tease, a crook and probably had sex with her beloved older-sister-like-a-mother’s smarmy needs-to-die husband despite claiming she’s a virgin. Except he is TERRIBLE at revenge.

He plots his revenge, but once he finds out that she’s a virgin and is so overwhelmed with guilt he is unavailable to complete the act, a first in HarleyLand. Then he marries her, see virgin. Then he sees a bank fax with her name and the evil BIL’s names on it and accuses her of fraud AGAIN.

Her reaction is non-standard Harley heroine. She doesn’t cry, she tells the fathead she’s fed up with his ridiculous accusations and take her to poky now. She’ll get the police to investigate the fraud since he is so bad at it. She’s gonna take down her evil BIL that she hates beyond the beyond, and the H can take a long walk on a short pier and just love on his self-involved self.

Hoisted by his own petard, the H does a 180, panics and grovels his way back into her good graces. They were on his way to see his, sorry but no other term will do, amor-blocking mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. He may look like a six -something Turkish tycoon wealthy businessman, but at heart he’s a nice boy that sneaks kisses behind granny and great-granny’s backs.

I enjoyed this, but didn’t love, love it. The best scene is where she turns the tables on the hero, and he realizes he is going to lose the best thing that ever happened to him.

Sadly, the horrible, terrible, evil BIL doesn’t get tortured in a Turkish prison the rest of his sorry life [he not only tried it on with the h, but he abandoned his wife and children of which one had CANCER then committed the grossest of fraud, but he does die which England and Turkey gave a sigh of relief over. Side note: did you know the author of Midnight Express actually apologized to the Turkish government for the portrayal of the prison system in Turkey? Turns out he was treated pretty decently.

So the Turkish hero and British heroine fell in love when he was in England and she was very young. There is a misunderstanding and he leaves without saying anything thinking she had betrayed him. Years later her sisters deadbeat husband has messed up the family finances and come to find out the hero had loaned them money and now he wants it back and to close this chapter in his life. He heroine travels to Turkey where they both discover that they have never really gotten over each other (she is still a virgin). A traditional blackmail of the sweet but poor heroine, but the hero is genuinely a nice guy. There is some misunderstandings along the way but the heroine has a backbone and you get a glimpse into traditional Turkish family life (his grandparents and extended family plan out a traditional wedding). All in all, I would read it again!

I have read several books by Lynne Graham and I have ejoyed most of them. This book was just ok. I have read it several times and still come away with the feeling that the only real reason he, Rauf married her, Lily, was because he found out she was a virgin. And that the love was not really there but the mores of his people stepped in. And he felt honor bound. Yea I know how it ends but it still felt like he forced himself to love her. Don't get me wrong I will still read this book again. Love Lynne Graham's work, mostly.

Although I have read this book a few times over the there is always one thing that gets me mad about this book and other similar story lines. The guy treats the girl like trash and she seems to lap it up, but what really makes me mad is that whenever there is a sup plot of any kind of crime like stalking, rape,harassment the perpetrator dies instead of going to court and jail and paying for his / her crimes. I would also love to read a book where the man actually listen to the woman and show her respect and where the woman actually stays the strong independent person she is portrait to be in the first chapter of the book

Our hero had a few jealousy issues, but really one of my favorite heroes ever. Not a mean bone in his body. The heroine was very sweet and likeable as well. More books like this, please. :)
uspeh uspeh
The storyline is the usual. Wealthy hero, younger naive heroine and big misunderstanding are resolved with a grand wedding and happily ever after. The Turkish hero was a novelty.
