To use the adjectives amazing, marvelous, incredible doesn't even describe One Night..Nine-Month Scandal. Alekos Zagorakis is unlike any Greek alpha I've read about. Yes he's typical with the wounded past, he's tall, dark, handsome and very very rich but he just can't seem to get it right when it involved Kelly Jenkins, the woman he left at the altar four years earlier. Now Kelly was doing the unthinkable, she was selling the fabulous heirloom diamond ring he gave her, his grandmother's ring, her engagement ring. And she's selling it on EBay! Kelly was like no other heroine, she loved this man, she spoke freely, she was sweet, kind, adored children, was a teacher and charmed all people she met. She only loved one man, a very confusing Greek man and he left her at the altar, humiliated her in the press, yet four years later she still loved him. However, what she didn't understand was how he could hurt her like he did but it was time for her to move on, so she decided to sell the diamond, not so much for herself but for closure and yes to make a statement, because the man she so loved was publicly seeing a famous Greek dress designer and it looked serious. And it hurt! Of course, this proud Greek alpha buys the diamond for four million dollars and came to collect it himself! Call it what you want, lust, passion it leaps off the pages between Kelly and Alekos and when they returned to her home to get the ring they acted on their passion in a most irresponsible way. In the end a pregnancy! A pregnancy Kelly wanted very much and one Alekos did not! Kelly drove him insane, so much so that he ended his relationship with the Greek designer and sent for Kelly on his private jet and brought her to Corfu. Kelly tried to tell him why they failed, as hard as it was for him, he tried to open up and share why he left her at the altar because he actually didn't want children. There was a good reason for that because when he was six years old his parents made him choose who he would live with and it took its toll on him. As for Kelly, well she knew what it was like to hope her father would make time for her but he never did...she was always waiting, hoping and she didn't want that for herself or her child. There were so many twists and turns to this romance, so many ups and downs I just kept reading all through the night because One Night..Nine Month Scandal literally captivated me, kept me holding my breath, had my heart racing and all I wanted for this couple was that happy ending! You won't believe the ending Sarah Morgan gave these lovers, it was simply amazing!

Mix together a third grade teacher and a shipping tycoon who has no experience with kids and you find a story filled with emotional mayhem, chaos and quite a bit of humor. I had so much fun reading this story mostly because Kelly is such a funny person. She's got these habits that would drive some people nuts but she's such an endearing personality that you can't help but think she wouldn't be the same without them. She's just being herself. Her comeback quips to Alekos were sometimes so off the wall that they left me chuckling. And he was left bemused and perplexed and a bit bowled over because Kelly is so different from anyone else he'd ever met. In fact, the opening chapter is what sold me on this story in the first place. The interaction between Kelly and her best friend, Vivien, showed two characters that really were great buddies and had a fun George and Gracie type dialogue that flowed back and forth between them. It provided a warmth and sincerity to the tale. The author never let me down; that quirk in Kelly's persona shined throughout the book. She's not all sunshine however, she's got one heck of a temper but even then, she bleeps. It's one of the best scenes and elements in the story and remembering it puts a grin on my face every time. Thing is, can such a sunny disposition even have a dark side? Only a reader will know. Alekos is a complicated man. Self made, he has a take no prisoners attitude for business and he applies that to all elements of his life. His first big scene in Kelly's classroom had me giggling. I knew right away that here was a man that needed balance and a healthy dose of feminine chaos to spice up his life and Kelly fits the bill marvelously. He is so self controlled that I also knew that he was hiding something. Sure enough, Kelly and I find out that inside this handsome and compelling man is a depth of feeling trapped inside with no way out. As a reader of romance books, I knew a catharsis was going to hit the fan eventually and I enjoyed how Ms. Morgan handled it. The scene with the gifts was tender and actually highly emotional. I do believe I sniffled at that part. Alekos is a wonderful tortured hero who needs saving. As for secondary characters, Vivian is the most important and relevant in the whole story. Kelly and Alekos are so interesting, they pretty much carry the book by themselves. When the hero and heroine come together in the physical way it's very romantic, passionate and steamy. There are moments of heated sensual buildup and explosive culmination sure to please the palate of romance readers especially those who thrill to those alpha Greek men. Ms. Morgan didn't disappoint there either. One Night .Nine-Month Scandal was an absolute joy and pleasure to read with characters I delighted in reading about with depths that made me care about their happiness and well-being. I thought the ending was perfect and in Kelly's words, made me feel 'warm and fuzzy'. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to romance readers who like laughter and sighs mixed in with their oooh's and aaah's as they read a good book because Ms. Morgan delivers on every count.

This is not your typical Harlequin. It is adorable. The characters have great chemistry. I just wished there was an epilogue.

     Kelly was left at the altar by the love of her life, Alekos years before. Having thought she moved on, she decides to sell her engagement ring on eBay. Imagine her surprise when Alekos shows up ready to claim the ring...and her! Only a few months after their initial meeting again, Kelly finds out she’s pregnant and reaches out to Alekos.       This is my first Sarah Morgan book and it will likely be my last.  I know that sounds incredibly negative and I honestly don't meant for it to be. I just felt a huge disconnect between myself and the characters.  Kelly seemed like such a pushover and not realistic at all. Would she really be wearing around a ring of the man who left her years and years before? Would you she immediately sleep with him when she saw him for the first time in years after everything he put her through? Again, I just had a hard time connecting with the character and her motivations behind her actions. I didn’t care for Alekos AT ALL...he seemed arrogant, self centered, and just blase about the whole situation. I wanted a little redemption after what he had done, but I never got what I wanted.

Not one of her best. I love her books, but this one was really lacking. The heroine was flaky and a scatterbrain. She didn't follow threw on thing she said and she often contradicted herself. They also didn't communicate well together. I love Sarah Morgan, but this was a wast of money. Maybe she was having an off day when she wrote this one.
