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!

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.

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.

Whew May 27 2003

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.

Greek holiday romance: Sept. 13 2002
By SusieQ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.

Horrible May 26 2011
By Mohini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The basic premise of this book is given and I don't want to repeat it. I'm going to mention the things that horrified me. This book left me more scared than any horror book I've ever read.
Apart from anything else, let me mention the double-standards. Draco doesn't trust her yet expects her to take him on trust. She never EVER tells him, "look what you've made of me," and forgives him for making a whore out of her, in fact she doesn't (except tokenly) resents it. At some points in fact, I had the impression that she felt she deserved it. Certainly another person in the book, a friend of Draco's felt she did and said so. She forgives him for blackmail in a moment, but he can't forgive her.
She actually ACCEPTS being a mistress, and goes on to say that she'll do anything, even if he does get married to someone else. Which is selfish, she doesn't even once think about how the wife would feel, or her family, and bang goes all her desire for independence or even a job.
Never once does it even occur to them, after they decide to be married, that HE could move. No it has to be the woman who has to give up her job, friends, life, everything. For him. I don't think this will ever change so she is going to be a doormat all her life. Well, whatever turns you on.
This is not Lynne Graham, whose heroines will and do send their heroes to the devil for being treated with anything less than respect. My advice is ditch this and read, "A Vengeful Passion," or "The Petrakos Bride," or "A Fiery Baptism," or "The Trophy Husband".
None of them will leave you with such a bad taste in your mouth.
