The Martinez Marriage Revenge by Helen BianchinSecret baby/second chance story between a Spanish billionaire and his pharmacist wife who escaped to Perth (Australia) after she was convinced hubby was cheating with a socialite OW. Heroine then found out she was pregnant and decided to hide from the hero. There have been no divorce papers drawn up and her daughter is now in kindergarten.
The heroine is found out when a friend of the Hs sees her with her daughter. Hero finally hunts her down with demands for a paternity test and a forced trip back to Spain so his grandfather can meet the child before he dies.
Most of the story is from the heroines POV and the hero says very little. He hangs around with his daughter. Tells the heroine he never cheated. Pours out wine. Buys her clothes. Announces their social calendar. Picks her up out of her own bed and puts her in his - every night. Its all kind of mechanical and yet its an oddly soothing contrast to the heroines dramatic thinking.
For the third act of the story, the little girl is (view spoiler)[ kidnapped. The grandfather dies. The OW tries to make trouble. The heroine goes back to Australia when the hero wont fight for her or tell her his true feelings.
Its only when the heroine is pregnant again that the hero decides to make his move. He declares his love and buys a house in Perth. Hes letting someone else take over for him in Spain. HEA. (hide spoiler)]
There were hardly any showers or clothes descriptions and the OW was barely credible - so not a typical Helen Bianchin. I liked that the hero compromised at the end and that the heroine kept her job. You never know with these Spanish Billionaire types who didnt bother to find you the first time you left.
