    1. Re The Alpha Man - or Kay Thorpe's travelogue of Greece under the guise of a little romance.KT loves Greece, there is big Author's note at the beginning of this to let us know. So in homage to the great travelogue romance writers of the past, HPlandia gives us Postcards From Europe a mini-series that continues the mission of HPlandia to give us love and romance in exotic locations. (Interestingly, there are no new writers in this year long series, or any writers that can't write the old skool tr [...]

    2. I am very happy to announce that the H in this novel is not a cheater ! After reading about this author's penchant for writing about cheating manwhores, I was pleasantly surprised to actually like Alexis, the H in this novel. He is a bit stuffy and boorish while being extremely old fashioned vis a vis gender roles, but he was quite nice to the heroine Zoe. Part of me wondered if Kay Thorpe was so focused on writing about all the lovely wonders of Greece, that she somehow forgot to make her H a c [...]

    3.

This time Greece. The other one the Caribbean.A [...]

    4. The 23 year old heroin is hired to be a companion to 18 year old Sofia in Greece. Sofia’s big brother (who I assume is a kind of guardian) Is attracted to the h and they end up in bed together. He discovers she’s a virgin and, as this is HPlandia, she’s not on the pill so the H proposes. The h thinks they should wait and see if shes preggers first (turns out she’s not). But the H can't keep away from the h and they are discovered making out and the H announces their engagement. At this p [...]

    5. Quite a romantic type read. Loved the confessions at the end and enjoyed the novel as a whole. At times though, it felt a bit boring to me. I hate saying that but there didn't seem to be enough action to keep me from loving the novel.
