One of my favourite Michelle Reid books! It's so good I've read it loads of times. From the back-cover: Italian tyccon Luciano De Santis is breathtaking in every way: he whas power, success-and a devastating effect on women. Published on 4 August 2008. He's sexy as hell & so head over heels in love with Lizzy right from the beginning. Lizzy is feisty & just the woman for Luc. I love the interaction between the hero/heroine & the final chapter is really super.

The De Santis Marriage Michelle Reid. Литагент HarperCollins EUR. Blackmailed and bedded for a baby!Italian tycoon Luciano De Santis is breathtaking in every way – he has dark goodlooks, a decadent jetsetting lifestyle, power and success – and a devastating effect on women

Italian tycoon Luciano De Santis is breathtaking in every way: he has power, success—and a devastating effect on women. Now Luc needs a bride—and he's decided that ordinary Lizzy Hadley will be his wife! He's set his trap and blackmailed her, and he knows she can't refuse him. But there's one condition Luc fails to mention—as his wife, Lizzy must produce an heir!
  • This is a typical HP romance. The H is your typical arrogant, conceited, cruel, man whore. The h is the saving grace in all of it. She is spunky, comes back with great quips, articulate, and mature. She says the obligatory "I hate you's" and "You're a B*****D"! No surprise there.

    Other reviewers wrote about twists and turns - really, where? This was such a cookie-cutter book, it was pathetic. Of course, a family member has done the H wrong and now he wants payback. It would have been UN-typical if the h had said, "Go ahead and do what you have to do. My brother is a grown man and he can be a man by accepting the consequences of his actions." And the author can take it from there.

    Another reviewer (who bought into the whole media thing) said he dumped Bianca (OW), but that isn't true. To quote Luc (H), "I did not chuck Bianca out, as you so charmingly put it. She left me."

    ***SPOILER ALERT******

    At the end of the book, Luc professes he loved Lizzie (h) since the first time he met her at his betrothal party to Bianca, but originally put it down to her similarity to his beloved grandmother. He LOVED Lizzie so much he did all of the following:

    1. In order to save face, he blackmailed her in marrying him.
    2. He sent a notice to the media knowing the media/public would crucify her for being a "marriage wrecker", but did he care? Not so you would know. Matthew was the "saving knight on the white charger", Bianca was the "betrayed damsel", and Luc was seen as "the absolute epitome of man's idea of a man. Big enough to acknowledge your mistake in your choice of bride and arrogant enough to grab the one you decided you wanted instead". What did he do when Lizzie told him this? He laughed! So much for love!
    3. Too many times he opened his mouth and said something vicious/cruel to her. She called him on it too when she said, "When you've had enough of punishing me for being the wrong woman you married..." Right on!
    4. He kept saying she owed him. WHAT? Matthew owed him (for taking Bianca), Bianca owed him (for jilting him), perhaps her father (for bailing him out), but Lizzie? No, she didn't owe him anything. She was the innocent bystander in all of this. What's sad is that she bought into it since it was her brother who took Bianca away from him.
    5. At the end of the book, Bianca came storming into the apartment, yelled at Lizzie, slapped her, then ran sobbing to Luc who came in at the end of her diatribe. What did Luc do? He continued to hold her, while Lizzie walked out. I do understand that in his arrogance he thought SHE should have stayed while he got the whole situation worked out, but in my mind as soon as he said "I do", his first obligation was to Lizzie, his wife, not to Bianca, the ex-fiancee who jilted him one week before his wedding. HE was the one who ought to have pushed Bianca out of the apartment and then talked to Lizzie. It took him a whole week to get out of Bianca why she did what she did? Really? What did it matter why? He stayed to pacify Bianca, but left Lizzie hurting and alone.
    6. He was mad at her for being a virgin because Bianca had told him Lizzie had two short romances that ended after she slept with each one once. I didn't get this part until it was explained at the end of the book.

    So....here's all the cast-offs Lizzie had of Bianca's: her clothes, her shoes, her wedding (let's face it, the venue, officiator, the meal, the decor, etc. were all what Bianca wanted and liked, not Lizzie), and last but not least, Luc! Does anyone else get a sense of ICK here?

    Recommend this book? Sure - you might like it and think it was well worth the time and money.

  • I love MR's writing, and this is up there with her older books in terms of greatness LOL!

    I find it interesting that different reviewers have such a different take on this story. It was such a well done storyline, and it was much more "modern" than many of the HPs I've read before.

    Now I do have to agree that the part when the ex, Bianca, came after our h, and the H gave the ex comfort instead of the h, really ticked me off. And our h is so stupid she believes that she should bow out if there is a child involved. Interesting that there was actually a reference to an engaged couple expected to be intimate in this day and age! Which our h didn't even consider until the ex showed up! But our h didn't even consider that in this day and age, the H didn't have to marry a baby mamma!

    Great story, and I loved it. Highly recommended.

  • I have never read a book twice in my life this is the book that changed that. From the first page, this book grabs you and does not let go. I could not stop reading it and all the time hoped I was no where near the end. Luciano Genovese De Santis "Luc" to his friends was every girls alpha dream man and so much more. Elizabeth "Lizzie" to everyone else but Luc was infatuated with Luc, but who wouldn't be six foot three, drop dead gorgeous, suave, and mega rich but engaged to her best friend. Lizzie was in Milan the week before the wedding and all hell broke loose because Bianca Lizzie's best friend ran off with Lizzie's brother. Bianca's parents asked Lizzie to go to Lake Como and tell Luc the news of what Bianca had done. Luc told Lizzie he was getting married the following week with or without Bianca. Lizzie thought Luc had lost his grip on reality because of his grief, Luc made it clear to Lizzie that she was going to marry him, and he was prepared to blackmail her. I don't want to tell you the whole story and spoil it for you. This story is fabulous and the characters are perfect. The story is warm, sensuous, and one of the most romantic I have ever read....and I have read many. You will not be disappointed, and I recommend it highly. I'm glad I have a kindle because I can read it, whenever I want....I read it again this weekend, and I notice something I didn't get the first time I read it......so ROMANTIC!!!

  • I normally don't like books about blackmail, or revenge. However this was a really good story. I really liked how Lizzy, and Luc was drawn to one another. The chemistry between them was HOT! Luc never questioned his destiny. It was just known he would marry Bianca. They both came from wealth. The day he met Lizzy, Bianca's best friend is the day he questioned his life, and choices. It was one week before his wedding to Bianca. I don't won't to spoil the book for you, but it was a good book. I'm rating this a 3, because I really don't like cheating.

  • I agree with the reviewer who said that it started off good but got progressively boring. Not sure if I would read again. Also, what is up with the whimpering females of this author's books. The part stammer really turns me off the story.

  • I liked it. The heroine wasn't a doormat and stood up for herself many times. There were a few events that I didn't quite understand/got confused over towards the end (would he have married her friend if she hadn't run away, why did she run away, etc) but overall a very good mills n boon. Te amo.

  • Luc needs a bride, his has run off with the bridemaids brother. What does he do? Why take the bridesmaid to wed. But is all as it seems? This story has quiet a few twist and turns in the plot. And poor Lizzy is the one left to pick up the pieces. With blackmail the norm here is it any wonder she does not trust her new husband? Like reading books by Michelle Reid and this is one that I have read several times.
