I thought she pulled it off in Purchased for Revenge because the hero’s motivation was a little clearer and the heroine’s black,ail for sleeping with the hero were a little more noble. Here the hero stalking the “frigid” heroine turns into a bit of revenge and blackmail bedded the hero misunderstands why the heroine is turning him down.
The heroine thinks he’s an entitled rich guy who won’t be denied and then will dump her when he’s done. The hero thinks she knows about his poverty stricken past and she’s being a rich bitch snob by turning him down. The blackamil motivations for having sex with the hero are so her brother can keep the family estate – and ajmes is attracted to him.
The heroine goes into a weird catatonic state when he’s not with her and only comes alive at night when they have sex. The hero keeps flashing back to a horrible woman who threw him out of the house after his mother died and then later tried to seduce him when he was rich.
It’s all kind of weird. Eventually the hero feels guilty and kames the heroine go. Heroine feels empty and whore- like so she liquidates her assets and gives the hero a check for a million dollars to pay for sex. Now they are even.
Then she flees to the hero’s home country and begins to work as a teacher in a mission. The hero shows up a few months later because his old bexded friend keeps inviting him down. View all 14 comments. Oct 18, Vintage rated it it was ok Shelves: The H wants the h who is a frigid snot.

How dare you touch me! Wow, the heroine is one cold, frigid entitled bitch. She gives Lady Mary a run for her money in the frosty tone stakes, and this could easily be read as a warning to the gentry of England that thinks their way of doing things is the only way as they watch it all slip away in incompe The short version: She gives Lady Mary a run for her money in the frosty tone stakes, and this could easily be read as a warning to the gentry of England that thinks their way of doing things is the only way as they watch it all slip away in incompetence.
AT least she realizes that she is lucky, but the entitled lifestyle is not endearing nor is her OTT reaction to the H.
Bedded by Blackmail
I literally winced when the heroine lectures the bazillionaire from the wilds of Argentina she actually doesn’t know where he comes from. Loring Lanchester is one hundred and fifty years old. It is one of the most highly regarded merchant banks in the City. There can be no question, no question whatsoever, of it being in trouble. Let’s be glad he has a chin. The hero has plenty of whatever the Central American equivalent of Yankee ingenuity as he pulled himself out of poverty as much for revenge against another rich bitch who killed his mother as anything else.
The hero… Diego sat back again and wondered what she looked like naked. The H is not much better. He had seen the heroine and, I guess, wanted to cool his man parts down with her frostier lady parts. What he wants he should get and he maneuvers the h into a dinner.
Being frigid, she wants none of that and lays out her disgust for his womanizing ways. This is the emotional sister book of Purchased for Revenge with punitive sex that both stimulates and humiliates the heroine.
Let’s just say her frigidity is gone with the wind, and she lives for the sex. She does a nice role reversal which almost pushes this to a third star, but just not enough. Not as good as Purchased for Revengeand three Julia James in a row is way too many. At least I had fun looking at pictures of handsome but callow English men and hunky Argentinan’s.

He essentially drops her like a hot potato before he sullies himself more with the unworthy bitch. He doesn’t find out until after tossing her aside that he was completely wrong about her.

He feels like total crap and has to deal with a lot of mental torture and suffers from the requisite weight loss. Instead, he just hides out and feels blackmqil for himself until he happens to stumble upon her again.
She’d learned he had a bad childhood, so that magically wiped his slate clean.
Even in overly hormonal Romancelandia I believe these 2 were confusing lust and love to an extreme. They didn’t know one another at all, since the entire affair was just sex and her wondering around various foreign countries sightseeing on her own while he conquered the world. I own this paperback and have beddfd it many times blackmaip the years.
The first half of the book is my favorite. I jupia Diego’s pursuit of Portia. His passive-aggressive behavior made me swoon. However, when things take a darker turn and Diego plays his ace, I am a bit disappointed. If you yearn for something, and then finally get it, do you then treat it poorly?
Plus the final chapter is too far fetched to be believable. Yet, I still have to give this hulia solid stars because I have reread this book ma I nulia this paperback and have read it many times over the years. Yet, I still have to give this 4 solid stars because I have reread this book many times beddwd the last decade and will continue to keep it in my prized possession.
Oct 14, Rexanne rated it it was ok. Everybody is talking about the lack of groveling in this book, but, In this case, I think the problem is more with the way they fell in love that with the groveling that was insufficient anyway. Ny mean, there is no reeason why she would come to love him and viceversa.
He is a total bastard to her every minute they spent together, there is no good and bad moments, only bad, and he thinks the worst of her till the very end, which is not likely to end in love feelings. The motions they display at Everybody is talking about the lack of groveling in this book, but, In this case, I think the problem is more with the way they fell in love that with the groveling that was insufficient anyway.
The motions they display at the end of the book, come from nowhere and thats a recurrent nlackmail in HQ books Women sane ones at least don’t fall in love with men that call them whore, goldigger, thief or liar, Once a misunderstanding is cleared or the H lets it go, the h can start to love him, but a normal woman would nor wet her pants with love and desire for a man while he calls her all the insults in dictionary even if he is a sex god and a gift to women.

He thinks that money will buy him whatever he wants. What he wants is Portia Lanchester, she used to be a society heiress but now she is penniless. She tells Diego that she will never be his and he now knows that he has to blackmail her so he can have what he wants. This book made me sit back and think about what I would do if this happened to me. I American billionaire Diego Saez used to be penniless and had nothing juloa now he is in London, England standing at a party where everyone can see him.
I know that it never will but I can dream. When I thought what I would do and what I would do is two separate things. You might think you blackkail do something but what you say is something totally different. Mar 18, Se Mcgregor rated it did not like it. Most of them, so far, pretty good reads and then there was this one! How a book can get beedded a HEA stage with almost zero dialogue between the lead characters astounds gy.
Yep, pretty much zero conversation till the last 10 pages or so. She was nasty, how he treated her was unforgivable.
