Has been leftpenniless Diego wants her Now Portia's gotonly one chance of survival if she'll surrenderto his blackmailand to himin his bed American billionaire Diego Saez used to be penniless and had nothing but now he is in London England standing at a party where everyone can see him He thinks that money will buy him whatever he wants What he wants is Portia Lanchester she used to be a society heiress but now she is penniless She tells Diego that she will never be his and he now knows that he has to blackmail her so he can have what he wantsThis book made me sit back and think about what I would do if this happened to me I know that it never will but I can dream When I thought what I would do and what I would do is two separate things You might think you will do something but what you say is something totally different


For his astounding rise from rags toriches Diego is convinced that everything andeveryone can be boughtSociety heiress Portia Lanchester I own this paperback and have read it many times over the years The first half of the book is my favorite I love Diego's pursuit of Portia His passive aggressive behavior made me swoon However when things take a darker turn and Diego plays his ace I am a bit disappointed If you yearn for something and then finally get it do you then treat it poorly? Plus the final chapter is too far fetched to be believable Yet I still have to give this 4 solid stars because I have reread this book many times over the last decade and will continue to keep it in my prized possession
