He loves power, material success…and sex.
Erica Silver has never done things the “usual” way. A single mom working towards a degree in psychology, she’s paying her way as an exotic dancer. No one can tell Erica how to live her life…especially not some handsome, arrogant Greek stranger, who wants to take her son away from his “unfit” mother.
Successful entrepreneur Tito Makris has no choice but to fulfill his best friend’s last wish. He must bring his friend’s son to Greece to claim a multi-billion euro legacy. Still, taking the boy from his mother-however tarnished she may be-is pretty much the last thing Tito wants. So he offers Erica a radical choice: marry him and stay with her son…or lose the boy-and him-forever.

I have to say that I loved this story and the way that it all ended. Rachel Lyndhurst definitely knows how to grab your attention in the very beginning and keep it though out the whole story. I loved that this dealt with the Greek culture as well. We don't see many stories set in the Greek cultur... ...more

Oh how I am loving this set of books. Even as there is a different author
for each book, dose not take away for the overall set. I did not start at
book one, but they all can be read as stand alone books. I have started to
