  • There aren t too many of the newer Harlequin Presents authors I like,but I have and enjoyed a few of this author s books.They are passionate and intense which makes for a good read.The heroine of this story,believing that her sister s groom is a member of the Greek mafia, a mob criminal ,decides to take her place and marry the hero ,hence the title.The sister in turn gets to run away and marry her one true love.Anyways,the groom thinking his arranged marriage was all green light was in for the s [...]


  • Very sweet, steamy, passionate love story Hero was horribly abused as a child and that broke my heart He had so many scars Heroine was funny and adorable I loved her loyalty to her sister and her compassionate nature Mikolas was pretty damaged but fortunately Vivi s love for him was unconditional She was not like your usual whiny insecure heroines at all I loved that Mikolas saved her life and taught her how to fight back Their chemistry was sizzling and the love scenes were so hot that I was fa [...]


  • Hypocritical, but I hold romances, Harlequins particularly, to a different standard This was almost a four star, but the H was such a surprise that it had to get bumped Yes, he s another angsty Greek billionaire with a nobody loves me backstory and a conquer the world agenda that has led him to a MOC and a merger The h has a nebulous personality, but will do anything to get her sister away from a loveless marriage and out from the thumb of a truly evil parent The anything includes taking the si [...]


  • 4.5 starsI m not in the mood to write reviews but if I keep postponing I ll forget the details of the story and won t be able to shelve it correctly I ve already forgotten if he was a manwhore I ve checked, he was a manwhore.I liked it a lot, it had enough drama, felt the development of their relationship, had a villain for me to hate, had redemption, an understanding H at least with the h and an adaptable h.The H was interesting, he was a little criminal until the kidnapping and brutal torture [...]


  • 2 2.5 stars, this The book started out strong but somehow couldn t keep it up I didn t care much for the writing style either although, it did have an appropriate amount of steam The good news is, as far as modern MBs go, the story allowed for the relationship between the couple Mikolas and Viveka to develop, instead of focusing solely on the chemistry between them So that was a definite plus here Mikolas is the son of a dead gangster and wants to legitimise his businesses by marrying the right [...]


  • I enjoyed this one as much as everyone else seems to have The hero was interesting in that he was not at the absolute top of the heap in money and power I mean he wasn t as poor as some of the HP heroes from 20 years ago or so but he still needed the heroine s help to get to the top of the heap with her social ease He was not an ass to her but rather pretty caring while still being convinced he was cold and could never love anyone She was sweet and kind All in all I really liked it Dani Collins [...]


  • Mikolas is a broken man emotionally and won t allow anyone to get close This story has some nice touches throughout.


  • Overview Mikolas Petrides had lived on the streets of Athens and been through some things in life at a young age that no one should he had come from a criminal background and had been saved by his grandfather but was working hard to bring the family company into a legal form to do that he must marry to form a merger.With a wedding, he secures a vital business merger and finally repays his grandfather for rescuing him from the horrors of his childhood.But the surprise that waits him will only tes [...]


  • I loved this book, and really couldn t find a single complaint hence the five stars Just everything really worked from page one until the end I was gripped from the very with all the descriptive detail from when Viveka was behind the veil walking down the aisle towards Mikolas, pretending to be her sister therefore disrupting his business deal as well as the wedding I was immersed in all the visuals during the wedding ceremony as well as her emotions going forth Her motivations for saving her si [...]


  • THE SECRET BENEATH THE VEIL by Dani Collins is a September 2016 release by Harlequin Presents series Mikolas Petrides was at the alter on the verge of getting married no, already married when he lifts the veil and sees that it was a different girl He was marrying her in the first place to secure the success of his company through the merger But, now what Viveka Brice s only thought was to save her younger sister from the unwanted marriage So she changed places with her But she hadn t really thou [...]


  • Viveka and Mikelos,Best HP I ve read in a while I loved the MCs They aren t perfect and that made them real Both Vivi and Mikelos have traumatic childhoods But where Vivi is still free with her love except with herself, Mikelos is closed off and harsh Vivi and Trina s father is a total scum bag He is forcing Trina to marry a man she barely knows when Trina is in love with someone else Enter Vivi to save the day by pretending to be Trina under the veil while Trina makes her escape Unfortunately [...]


  • Wow This was a lot enjoyable than I thought it would be The H is a truly tormented soul who is harsh, brutally honest and distant, but not cruel and hateful The h has lived a life where she has been made to feel like less than and unlovable, but still has enough goodness in her that she can be truly loyal and good to people who don t really deserve it The circumstance that brought them together was a necessary evil What kept them together was a chemistry that was stronger than the H need to kee [...]


  • 3 to 3.5 stars Big fan of this author and her interesting little idiosyncrasies How to tell you re reading a Dani Collins book Hero has a vasectomy so the heroine never has to experience pregnancy or childbirth again not in this book, though Heroine must carry a pocketbook Check Perhaps the authors Canadian roots showing through The penultimate love scene between hero and heroine must include the word miasma Check example from this book He was swirling in a miasma of lascivious need, achingly ha [...]


  • 4.25 Stars Dani Collins writes a great story, one I enjoyed a lot This is definitely an angsty read but very rewarding at the end.Our hero, Mikolas Petrides, seals the deal on a major business merger that will finally settle the debt he felt he owed his grandfather He is a major womanizer but is with no other woman in the story other than the heroine He cares nothing for the young woman he will soon marry to secure the deal He is a damaged soul, inside and out His father was mafia and ended up m [...]


  • Dani Collins is a fabulous story teller she writes stories that sizzle and bring out so many emotions that will engage the reader and bring a smile to your face when you finish with a wonderful HEA and this one is a beauty of a story.Viveka Brice has had a pretty tough childhood that leaves her mentally scared she is loyal to a fault and pays her own way and she will do anything to help her half sister Trina even to the point of helping her get out of a forced marriage to someone not suited to t [...]


  • The marriage ruse Tick.Pretend affair Tick.Real feelings Tick.Starting with a wedding that got nullified the moments vows were said, Mikolas and Viveka are tied in a tie and they must stick together I must say that I sort of like stories wherein the characters are flawed or else every author goes he or she was perfection itself which just gets too unreal This was not the case here as Mikolas has a physical defect which is prominent as well He has risen above it however.For Viveka, I absolutely l [...]


  • Just a quick note to readers that Clair and Aleksy from The Russian s Acquisition make a guest appearance here If you prefer to read in order, you ll want that one first Also, when Vivi talks to the hotel owner, it s Adara from More Than A Convenient Marriage , but it s a very quick exchange, not a proper visit Happy reading


  • Normally, I m not a huge fan of archaic story lines that involve marriage contracts and trickery but in this instance it worked for me I ve been a fan of Collins other contemporary stories but after reading a sneak peek of this one on her social media page I had to dive right in.Mikolas and Viveka are introduced on the day of a wedding A day that was supposed to see Vivi s sister Trina marrying Mikolas thanks to a contract business merger between Trina s father and Mikolas but Vivi decides to s [...]


  • I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review I loved the story between Vivi and Mikolas They are both damaged souls Mikolas was tortured because of who his father was Only being saved by his biological grandfather, once his paternity has been proved To him caring for anyone is a liability And then we have Vivi so protective of her half sister Having to deal with a viscous stepfather Who probably killed her mother Then having to live with an uncaring aunt Even after all that Viv [...]


  • I ve been reading another book entitled God The Most Unpleasant Character in All Fiction In it, the author goes through several chapters that reveal the Creator in all his baseness One chapter deals with His misogyny Since the bible was written by males, the values in it reflect the s, manners, culture and customs of the time Women were chattel, property, victims, war prizes and bargaining chips They were considered expendable, unclean during their periods, prone to harlotry, weak and, above all [...]


  • For once, I loved the H and h in equal measure.In response to the age old question Was it as good for you as it was for me The hero s response was I have just finessed my way through initiating a particularly delicate virgin My ego is so enormous right now, it s a wonder you fit in the bed The heroine is equally lovely in her response to his order to not feel things for him Don t tell me what to feel That is where you control what I feel points to rumpled bed, then pats chest In here I ll feel w [...]


  • Companion to The Russian s Acquisition by Dani Collins.I liked the interaction between the two and how Viveka Brice was very much her own person The epilogue was poignant and struck me in my heart.


  • I loved this storyo people who want to be loved, but then are afraid when they find it of getting hurt Well written and touching story.


  • Quite goodA story where it was explained very well why the H couldn t reciprocate feelings but the passion between both was awesome.




  • There was a bit too much sex story ratio for my taste, but those of you who like love stories rather spicy might appreciate that


  • The Secret Beneath the Veil by Dani CollinsThe marriage between Mikolas Petrides and young 18 year old bride, Trina was to take place on a remote island in the Aegean Imagine the surprise your up at the alter and the words you hear are YOU MAY KISS THE BRIDE As the veil is lifted you are in for the huge shock This is not the woman you are expecting and have no idea where Trina is Viveka Brice would do anything to protect her little sister, Trina, even pretend to marry a stranger Trina had been s [...]


  • I was instantly whisked away into this story one word at a time as the unfolding drama of a runaway bride kept me riveted The angsty and tension filled scenes between Mikolas Petrides and Viveka Brice had sexual undercurrents lingering there and I anticipated their HEA Viveka has spunk, determination and her headstrong personality adds intensity to this story Though her life might appear perfect, she has faced trials than any young girl should In the meantime, Mikolas is a broody, sexy devil, h [...]


  • Wonderfully exciting and fast paced beginning chapters set the scene for what has become one of my favourite read stories in recent times Loved the beginning where Vi is standing in for her sister at the alter The dramatic scenes of being discovered by not only the groom but the evil step father had me wide awake With hints of belonging to the Mafia you wonder what Vi has got herself into when she finds herself put to sea with the groom Mikolas With lots of drama and emotion the two become almos [...]
