This is a premise I enjoy, but this one fell FAR short on the romance. Unfortunately, that’s not the case here. He essentially drops her like a hot potato before he sullies himself more with the unworthy b.
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 jaames hides out and feels sorry 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 loved the book, I have read four times, I have already recommended it to my friends.
One person found this helpful. She wrote 2 pretty good first novels, then two horrible ones, but I couldn’t resist trying the ridiculously titled “Bedded by Blackmail” thanks to the memory of the first two good books. So I broke my sacred rule! Anyway — This one is not as terrible as the last two, thank goodness.
There’s plenty of Harlequin-romance stereotypical behavior and characters Yet, there’s a slightly deeper subtext Ms. James gives these characters which makes the story enjoyable and a good read.
Bedded by Blackmail by Julia James
Portia, the heroine, is a blonde, fragile English flower who’s never experienced good sex characteristics typical of a Harlequin heroine and Diego, the obligatory Latin multi-millionaire who’s the answer to a maiden’s prayer also typical of jajes Harlequin-formula hero have a somewhat deeper layer than the superficial gloss.
She’s been honestly damaged by her only sexual experience with a clumsy English boyfriend into thinking of herself as frigid, avoiding any men who could possibly break that belief; he’s been damaged by a childhood in the slums, losing his parents and clawing his way to the top Well, it sounds corny, and it probably is, but Ms. James makes it work. I still think Ms. James is a better writer than the Harlequin formula is allowing her to be, so I awarded one star for that.
I’m hoping she’ll write something really memorable, outside of that box, someday.

This was an OK read. It was a bit slow plus I was disturbed by the characters. I know what the author was trying to achieve – a frightened heroine with a protective shell and a bitter hero who made some incorrect assumptions. I felt the heroine was written in such a way that she was close to despicable, unfair, cruel in her words. The hero I had a little more sympathy for but he was no great shakes either until the end.
The ending brought them both around. These are just my comments. Like I said, I understood what was intended but I feel it could have been done with more likable characters.
I really,really liked it! At first didnt mainly cause i wasnt in the mood for another millionaire wants girl till he tires of her type story, but it was so well written i could actually feel their emotions. Your going to adore Father Tomas, oh and for those of you who blackmai interested the sex was okay too, i liked the fact that it wasnt graphi,but still sexy.
