this story The hero is well drawn considering he falls into the playboy category so easily What saves him is his sense of the absurd towards the end he affectionately calls the heroine his virgin tart The heroine was a sweetie who really tried not to fall for the hero and had no delusions that she would be the one to change him The minor characters were equally well drawn The PA who was the hero s father s mistress had been a mother figure to the hero his whole life and he was devastated by her betrayal and all the secrets She understood this and kept reaching out to re establish their relationships I couldn t hate her but I did hate his father who had almost no page time, but loomed over the story.The in the closet politican was a charmer and I m glad he got his happy ending Same with the heroine s brother and sister in law who were t just cardboard cutout victims of circumstances All in all, this was an entertaining read But keep in mind the hero exhibits sleazy playboy behavior porn collection, going to nightclubs and staying out all night when under stress so if that bothers you, you won t like this story He doesn t slut shame since he s a slut himself and he knows

ridden then subsequent sinus infection ridden for the last five days, I needed to escape in a few Harlequins After the first chapter, I was really unsure of who the pirate was, and I knew that Estelle had the use of both eyes After the second chapter, I went back and looked at the cover and was just about to show it to someone and ask them if they thought she was wearing an eye patch Then my eyes roamed up to the title, and I had the embarrassing realization that it was Playboy not Pirate Then I finally looked a little closer and realized Estelle was wearing sunglasses We re never going to speak of this again cough This is REALLY great romance Estelle is a strong woman with perfect eyesight brought low by circumstance who finds herself receiving an incredible offer from PLAYBOY Raul

okay but it seems to me these novels are constantly rip offs of older ones, which are worse than the old ones Ugh, I miss Penny Jordan, she always had something new that had me falling in love. I am enjoying this author s work I really liked this one I felt the hero was different enough while still being the same alpha HP hero I like He really earned his playboy label He hid behind the playboy thing She was sweet and caring and just what he needed. My Harlequin Presents reading has dwindled over the years and I only read one from time to time I picked this one up based on reviews from my goodreads friends, Jenny and Vashti and I m glad that I did It was a nice leap back into the HP world Sweet heroine, playboy hero but one who isn t a total jerk and actually can be kind of sweet.I ve enjoyed other HP books by Carol Marinelli This was a nice treat.
