Mia and the Powerful Greek by Michelle Reid
About the book:
While scrubbing floors, Mia dreams of a better life. Then she discovers she's a Balfour—the illegitimate daughter of one of the world's richest dynasties! Thrust headfirst into her new family's spectacularly glamorous lifestyle, she's scared….
But then comes an opportunity to learn about high society, through the chance to work for Greek tycoon Nikos Theakis, who struggled his way up, himself, from the slums of Athens to Millionaire's Row. Nikos has got where he is by always having taken what he wanted…. Until Mia's sweetness and integrity stop him in his tracks…
My humble opinion:
Loved it. The first in a 8-book series about the Balfour Sisters.
The Hero is a brute and tries not to get involved with the Heroine but her beauty and innocence is hard to resist, especially since she is forced to work with him. This makes a great summer read....not too heavy.
