The Tycoon's Mistress by Sara Craven
Harlequin Presents # 2192 - July 2001
The Greek Tycoons themed series

On the verge of burn out, Cressida's boss urges her to take an extended vacation somewhere warm and relaxing. The last thing Cressy wanted was a holiday romance in the Greek isles, but Draco's charisma is overwhelming. When this gorgeous fisherman discovers that she is a virgin, he refuses to have an affair but romances her and then proposes. For the first time in a very long time, Cressy feels treasured, and she agrees. She returns to her hotel to gather her things for her move to the island where Draco lives, and to call and let her family know of her upcoming marriage. But she learns that her father has had a heartattack, is in intensive care, and that her stepmother has conned her father out of all his wealth and left town. Cressy leaves Greece to return to England, suddenly feeling very scared of her blinding love for Drako, as blinding a love as her father had felt for the woman who had now betrayed him. What shocks Cressy is that a Greek Tycoon is prepared to purchase her father's estate and take over his debts, and wishes only to negotiate the deal with her in person. Drako is not a fisherman as Cressy had assumed, and he no longer wishes to marry her after she fled Greece without the consideration of a phone call, or the trust in him that he would want to help her in any way. In order to save her father from financial ruin, Cressy is to become Draco's mistress for three months, and after that time she will be free and the estate deeds transfered to her.

This is my first by Ms. Craven. She begins the story with Cressy's return to England, and introduces her romance with Draco with cleverly written backflashes.

I have to agree with the other reviewers who mention the heroine's weak & kind of spineless character, but there was the excuse that her mother was dead & father had neglected her for his sexy new wife & left the heroine to grow up alone. She had devoted herself to her work, so that when the opportunity for love presented itself, she just didn't know how to deal with it. That seemed "real". I did love the description of Draco & the way he treated Cressy when they first made love, in Greece, was perfect. And after all, we don't read a Harlequin for deep truths!

This is my first by Ms. Craven. She begins the story with Cressy's return to England, and introduces her romance with Draco with cleverly written backflashes. This worked wonderfully and bravo to Ms. Craven as often the use of backflashes can be confusing. Draco is definitely alpha. We rarely get his point of view, except through Cressy's thoughts and observations, and through the opinions expressed by other characters, so it's easy to paint him as ruthless and unforgiving. I'm not sure of how I feel about Cressy. Often I thought her too self-pitying, and seemed to not have enough back bone to either stand up to Draco or her father. Their passion was intense, and overall I think their chemistry was well expressed. This was an enjoyable read.

This was the kind of vacation I always wanted to take. Cressida meets Draco on a Greek island & woo-hoo! Seriously, I liked this book. It was a typical Harlequin & pretty well written. In fact, I have read other Sara Craven Harlequins and I think this one is her best. I didn't find Cressy weak, as some other reviewers did; just confused.

weak heroine Oct. 25 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The heroine throughout the entire book is a complete doormat. She never stands up for herself. The hero treats her shabbily the entire book and she just takes it and then goes to him at the end and is ready to beg him to take her back when he is the one that has been cruel to her the entire book. This book was painful to read.

Greek holiday romance: Sept. 13 2002

I have to agree with the other reviewers who mention the heroine's weak and somewhat spineless character, but, in her defense, there was the excuse that her mother was dead and father had neglected her for his sexy new wife & left the heroine to grow up alone. She had devoted herself to her work, so that when the opportunity for love presented itself, she just didn't know how to deal with it. That seemed "real" enough. I did like the author's depiction of Draco, and the way he treated Cressy when they first made love, in Greece, was perfect.

The basic plot of the book is that the heroine vacations on a Greek island and falls in love with the local billionaire. They hit it off and decided to get married. However, the heroine gets a call that her dad is dying and has to return home. She does not pass this information on and as a result he follows her home, gets her father out-of-debt, and basically forces her into being his mistress. While the book is good, you do wish the heroine would speak up!
