Summary More Than a Mistress 108 ↠ He is her prizebut will she be his mistress Surely Travis Baron is a man for whom any woman would want to bid Blisteringly handsome and immensely successful the corporate lawyer is the possible heir to Espada his father's sprawling ranch and he's up for grabs at a charity auction But when Alexandra Thorpe wins Travis for tD thousands of dollars on Travisand then just walked away Travis is determined to pursue the lady who bought him and exact his own price THE BARONS FOUR BROTHERS BONDED BY INHERITANCE BATTLING FOR LO. This book has one of my least favorite kinds of heroes The guy who takes one look at the beautiful heroine and is certain that she desires him as much as he desires her Given his certainty about her interest in him sexually he begins throwing out the most godawful pick up lines Things like “You need me and I need you And I promise you we’ll satisfy our needs before the night ends” Instead of the heroine being turned off or freaked out or just amused by such obnoxiousness she is actually turned on PLEASEMy second problem with this book is the way it portrays the heroine’s ex husband Apparently they split up because she was frigid in bed He of course informed his new wife of this and she promptly spread the news around the social circles that Alexandra inhabits I can buy this as a legitimate plot devise to send the heroine to bachelor auction looking for a stud What I can’t buy is how later in the book when Travis is trying to convince Alexandra to get her kink on in the bedroom she admits to feeling uncomfortable because her ex’ had always told her it wasn’t ladylike to do certain sexual things This seems like a raging contradiction to me Did the ex’ dump Alexandra because she was frigid or did he keep her frigid on purposeThe book manages to earn three stars because Alexandra eventually gets her act together and stands up to the hero treating her like a disposable girlfriend but this definitely isn’t something I’m ever going to pick up again

To Espada his father's sprawling ranch and he's up for grabs at a charity auction But when Alexandra Thorpe wins Travis for the weekend she doesn't claim her prize Why has the cool blond beauty stake. Once again I was annoyed first by the first novel of The Baron series and second by the second book I almost want to give up and throw in the towel on this series I've read a few books out of the series which I haven't reviewed yet and found them lacking The hero annoyed me to no end he seemed to think that because he was a Baron and heroine was a woman that she would want him and fall into his bed easily It really made me detest him and men in the real world who are like him Now the heroine actually believed that this behavior was politically correct and shows interest in him barfs I wasn't amused
