Book Description

1 Feb 2011 Mills & Boon Modern
She committed a sin…and hides a shocking secret… Ramon Velaquez, heir to the Velaquez winery, clearly stated his cardinal rule to Lauren Maitland – he can’t promise her more than a red-hot affair. Whilst she heard the words, her heart wasn’t listening, and her punishment for falling in love was to be sent away. Two years later, and Ramon still can’t escape the memories of the woman he banished. But when he finds Lauren again she’s independent, strong, and harbouring a shocking secret…

Lauren Maitland, respected London attorney and mistress to Roman Velaquez knew she was in trouble because she had not only fallen in love with the ruthless Spanish billionaire Ramon Velaquez, she had also discovered in his absence that she was expecting his baby. Fall in love was something Ramon didn't do because he'd been there, done that and had been betrayed.

Upon his return, Ramon couldn't wait to see Lauren so he called her and invited her to dinner. However what he didn't expect was to receive a present from her because it was their so called six month anniversary and he didn't do anniversaries. He also didn't keep a mistress around for more than a couple of months. However, he enjoyed Lauren's personality, they had a lot in common, he respected her but then she did the clingy think and asked him where their relationship was going due to her secret pregnancy. The answer was his father was ill, he would be expected to marry aristocracy to provide an heir and would take his royal place and live in Spain at the family castle. It didn't include here in his life, so she broke off their relationship. No one walked away from Ramon, never!

Lauren had trust issues when it came to men. Her father had left her mother for a mistress, leaving her and her mother behind, never to hear from him again. He had hurt them both so badly. Lauren's mother took to drinking and Lauren worked several jobs to pay the mortgage, graduated from university and was determined to become an independent woman, never to depend on a man for her happiness. After Ramon told her about what would be expected of him from his family, the decision was made for her, to keep their baby a secret and not tell him.

Secret baby?

3.0 out of 5 stars Good start but reverted to the usual formula 8 Feb 2011
By L. Sims TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is an okay read,it is the story of Ramon who is the heir to an old spanish title he is handsome rich and a playboy, he has had a very strict upbringing and finds it easy to hide his feelings. lauren is a lawyer whoose Father walked out on her mother and her when she was fifteen she finds it hard to trust men, and although she understood and was happy that her affair with Ramon was not permanent.It has not stopped her from falling for him. when she discovers she is pregnant she plans to tell him on his return from a business trip it is their six month aniversary so she has bought him a gift, to him this wakes him up to the fact that this relationship has gone on for too long and reminds her that she is only his mistress, she asks him the what the future of their relationship is and he tells her they dont have one.there will come a day he saids that he must marry but only a woman from a blue blooded background like his, she is furious and ends their relationship without telling him she is pregnant.that is the basics of the begining of this story. I thought that it would really be an excellent read after the opening chapter Lauren really seemed to have quite a bit of backbone and told him in no uncertain terms what she thought of him. But that did not last long and we had the usual theme where he only had to come within 10 feet of her and she was like putty in his hands I find that so annoying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong female 25 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book stars with a strong Female character. Which is a change from many mills and boon. A top lawyer she meets our rich heroe as an equal,,, or so she thinks, but for him she's just another mistress.

5.0 out of 5 stars His Lost Heir by Chantelle Shaw 18 Feb 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is one of the best Modern Romances I have read to date. I have been a Mills and Boon addict since 1963 and there appears to be no signs of satiation. The hero Ramon and the heroine Lauren have been well delineated. Their banter, repartee and witty dialogue is interesting and intriguing. It would be a pleasure to have met Ramon and Lauren in reality. The inclusion of their ten month old baby boy makes it so much more realistic. I would strongly recommend this book to all readers who are hopelessly romantic!

3.0 out of 5 stars A So So Book 15 Sep 2013

This is a standard formula book that has the usual misunderstandings & deceptions. I like Ms. Shaw's romances but this was not one of her best. Light reading!
2.0 out of 5 stars gave me a headache 5 April 2014
By Karen Clarke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This story has too many elements going on, too much to think about.
By the time Ramon starts being a nice person it's too hard to get pass his callousness and hypocritical beliefs, he is still a suffocating pig. Lauren's indecisiveness was so tiring and despite the nice things written in, Lauren's spineless response to many situations lost my interest.
1.0 out of 5 stars waste of time 21 Jan 2012

the hero was a jerk and he did not respect the heroine. at the beginning the way he talked to her was very bad. then the heroine kept saying sorry for every little shortcoming the hero pointed out.

His Unknown Heir (Harlequin Presents Extra)Won't go into the story line since the above reviewer did. I do agree it was a decent story--I'd probably give it a 4.5 as opposed to a 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sin.and a secret 11 Jun 2011
By Marilyn Shoemaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Lauren Maitland, respected London attorney and mistress to Ramon Velaquez knew she was in trouble because she had not only fallen in love with the ruthless Spanish billionaire Ramon Velaquez, she had also discovered in his absence that she was expecting his baby. Fall in love was something Ramon didn't do because he'd been there, done that and had been betrayed.

Upon his return, Ramon couldn't wait to see Lauren so he called her and invited her to dinner. However what he didn't expect was to receive a present from her because it was their so called six month anniversary and he didn't do anniversaries. He also didn't keep a mistress around for more than a couple of months. However, he enjoyed Lauren's personality, they had a lot in common, he respected her but then she did the clingy think and asked him where their relationship was going due to her secret pregnancy. The answer was his father was ill, he would be expected to marry aristocracy to provide an heir and would take his royal place and live in Spain at the family castle. It didn't include here in his life, so she broke off their relationship. No one walked away from Ramon, never!

Lauren had trust issues when it came to men. Her father had left her mother for a mistress, leaving her and her mother behind, never to hear from him again. He had hurt them both so badly. Lauren's mother took to drinking and Lauren worked several jobs to pay the mortgage, graduated from university and was determined to become an independent woman, never to depend on a man for her happiness. After Ramon told her about what would be expected of him from his family, the decision was made for her, to keep their baby a secret and not tell him.

Secret baby? Not for long because fate stepped in eighteen months later Ramon's father died, he took up the reigns, taking care of his mother and family but he couldn't get Lauren out of his mind. He somewhat blackmailed her by going to her law firm, requested that she become his London attorney and the "heat was on". Poor Lauren was frightened he would learn about his son Mateo and in the end he did and let's just say he was furious and felt betrayed. He was so furious that he threatened to take his son away unless they all three returned to Spain. The chemistry was still there for both of them and Lauren fought it every step of the way.

One woman, along with her lover betrayed Ramon when he was eighteen and he thought he loved her. However, his father had pointed out it was a scam for money. Now this woman he was still attracted to, who he slept with again, had betrayed him by not telling him he had a son. Talk about a roller coaster romance. Yes she still loved him and wanted him in her bed. However she still wanted her independence but agreed to marry him because she was so afraid he would take Mateo away from her. Throw into the mix, Pilar, an attractive model, a family friend who stirred up doubts about her relationship with Ramon and Lauren wondered how secure was her marriage. Pilar said things like "do you know what Roman does on Fridays". That would put up a red flag personally for me.

There were many challenges for both Ramon and Lauren but it was touching to read about how well Ramon adapted at being a father and husband. In the end, as this sexy alpha stated to the wife he adored..... "true love, the kind that lasted forever was profound and loving, passionate and tender. It was about trust, forgiveness, friendship and an abiding affection that transcended all of life's problems and disappointments and brought the greatest joy." Such a lesson for all of us to remember, don't you think?

His Unknown Heir was an amazing roller coaster romance thanks to Chantelle Shaw, one I will long remember.
