summary The Innocent's Surrender Sara Craven ¶ 3 characters free download ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB ¶ Sara Craven Tycoon Alex Mandrakis Summoned to his bedroom Natasha is given an impossible ultimatum sacrifice her virginity or he will destroy her familyCaptive on Alex's luxury yacht Natasha. At 17 Natasha attends her first grown up party sees handsome playboy Alex and is instantly something what is this feeling so sudden so new Alex is the son of her foster family s bitter enemy so the glance is all she gets She s still thinking about it four years later He was so hot and there is much attempt to articulate inarticulate yearningsNatasha is an orphan and her Greek millionaire foster father carried her off to Athens to grow up with his own children She loved him and her foster mother although their grown up children are pretty rotten When the foster father dies Natasha is left a seat on the board and a salary which of course she waives because she s good hearted and independent but it means that she regularly has to leave her nice business in London and travel to Greece to sign Important PapersHer foster brothers have made a huge mess of the business and it s about to go under I mean it s a really huge mess if they d just swanned around rich places complaining about how damn busy they were running this big global company while doing nothing everything probably would have been fine Now Alex the enemy has offered to buy in and the brothers have this crazy scheme They re going to the banks to say hey give us money we re attractive to big investors And to distract Alex Natasha is to write a letter offering to marry himNo I bloody won t says Natasha but the brothers and their wives and the evil foster sister who has always hated her say do it do it do it So she doesMonths later the inevitable has happened and Alex the enemy is now actually buying the company out for some tiny pittance and Natasha has to head back to Athens to sign some Important Papers At the airport she s herded into a car and taken to Alex s lairSo what s going on Ah Alex is claiming the other thing that he purchased which is her Natasha says umm no that was marriage and it should have been fairly clear that was phony so let me go fiend But Alex then whips out letter number two and says haha minx Explain this filthy missiveThe contents of that letter are never really explained but it s sex acts Both of them will later talk about it as if it s the most horrific thing that their eyes have ever encountered so I m assuming it s not just position descriptions It needs to be taken as given that when Alex refers her to paragraph two it says something like I want you to forcibly seduce me and no matter how hard I beg don t take no for an answer Natasha does try to explain that this is fake that she doesn t want to and that this is wrong but we re sticking with the paragraph two defence so it s on Natasha pretends to be a block of wood and Alex has a conversation with her hymenSo he says afterwards had much sex Oh yeah tons she says all fab except for that one time just then with you And he says yeah no I know a hymen when I pierce one Let s take a shower and maybe have chatsThe shower is all confusing tender feels but Natasha is not up for chats The next morning Alex explains that she s going to jolly well go along with his plan for them to have sex otherwise he s going to take the family s mansion in Athens and her fragile foster mother will be out on the streets homeless So Important Papers are signed and except for the mother the family are awful and Alex yells at them for being awful He explains to Natasha that her brothers can now choke on the fact that she took one for the team and it s all their fault but I don t think this is particularly satisfying The brothers after all wrote a creepy sex letter and pretended that it was from their sister so I m not convinced that knowing she s bought their house with her innocence is going to wreck them I d have been better satisfied if Natasha cut them because I m getting to that stage in reading HP when I just want to take the heroine aside and tell her that although I know she s hurting I really need her to be the slayer right nowAlex has a flunky who will look after Natasha s nice business while she s busy with all the sex he s going to do to her and Alex and Natasha sail off around the Greek islands in his boat and eat lots of really amazing food that is lovingly described Alex s heart really isn t in being a brutal seducer and he keeps trying to be nice to her which when she notices is awkward and difficult because she just wants to hate him and maybe they could have hate sex Not even a little bitThey go to Alex s island home and his servants all give her side eye because they aren t interested in any hussy sans ring Natasha is very generous about seeing their pointless point and not cutting them They work out the bedroom stuff and Alex s character is retrofit as a super nice guy which doesn t uite blend with his ruthless businessman image but I appreciated the effort enough to like him and to like them together The ending with it s final devastating misunderstanding is fun
