Ally is back in the life of PJ Antonides for one thing only—his signature on their divorce papers.

But arrogant Greek businessman PJ refuses to sign anything. He won't accept that Ally's no longer his wife. So when the smoldering attraction between them moves negotiations from his boardroom to his bedroom, PJ knows his forbidden bride is once again his, and ready for the taking….


Antonides’ Forbidden Wife is Anne McAllister’s latest tantalizing novel for Harlequin Presents!

At eighteen years old, Ally was desperate to escape from her father’s tyrannical clutches and to experience the world and be an ordinary woman leading an ordinary life. A relative of hers had left her a substantial fortune, but the only way she could get her hands on this legacy is if she marries. Unfortunately for Ally, her father does not permit her to date, but when she meets surfer PJ Antonides, she realizes that she might have finally found her convenient husband…

On their wedding night, sparks begin to fly and as they make love, Ally realizes that she might just have fallen for PJ. Not daring to reveal to him her true feelings, she decides that the best thing for it is to run away and start afresh. Away from her father and her husband, Ally decides to begin anew and to make a new life for herself. But her husband’s tender love-making keeps on haunting her…

Many years have passed since the last time they clapped eyes on each other. PJ is no longer a laidback surfer but a ruthless businessman who refuses to have his heart broken again. When Ally walks through his office door, old feelings soon resurface, but he is stunned she asks him for a divorce. Now that Ally is back in his life, PJ is not about let her out of his sight ever again and when he kisses her for old times sake, Ally begins to wonder just why she left him in the first place...

Anne McAllister has written another fresh, funny, tender, intense and emotional romantic read. Like Nora Roberts and Jennifer Crusie, Anne McAllister’s writing sparkles with warmth, humour and ingenuity and readers looking for a heartwarming and heart wrenching story that will keep them up all night will not want to miss Antonides’ Forbidden Wife!

Great review! I just finished this book and I loved it. The Antonides' family is one most people would die for and PJ, well he was not just a handsome face, his devotion and honor knocked my socks off!
