SECRETS OF A RUTHLESS TYCOON
Leo Spencer is the CEO of a major London company, but that’s not the story he tells the Irish pub owner he meets. Brianna believes Leo is a writer investigating the emerald hills of Ireland for his next novel. The truth is somewhere in the middle: Leo is a London CEO in Ireland to investigate, but not for a novel. Leo’s looking for the mother who abandoned him when he was an infant. Brianna knows nothing of this and finds herself charmed by the man who tries so hard to help her out during a sudden snowstorm. He’s nice, helpful, warm…and available. Brianna and Leo start up a romance while they’re in each other’s company, but Leo is still on a mission. He needs to find his birth mother—little does he know that Brianna is actually good friends with her!

The hero goes to a pub in search of his birth mother and answers as to why she gave him up. It's there he meets the heroine and they both quickly develop an attraction to each other. Yet, he lies about his career to figure out if the heroine has any information about his mother. He doesn't learn much except about how the heroine if very self-reliant and hardworking from paying off her father's debts (the man wasn't bad, just took loans to pay for her college tuition and his medical bills) and her boyfriend ditching her when times got tough. One of the things that I liked is the hero having a good childhood with loving adoptive parents. He only wants answers and I respected how he didn't start searching till after his adoptive parents died because he didn't want to hurt them with searching for his birth mother. The hero does feel bad for lying to the heroine but his desire for the answers push him to keep going in the lie he conjured. He does learn that the heroine knows about the mother but before he meets the mother, he and the heroine skip a couple of steps to the bedroom. The hero is anxious over what to do because he's developed a deep connection with the heroine but the lies could tear their relationship apart. When he meets the mother and they have a pleasant conversation. He asks about her past under the lie of using it for a story. She tells him that she met an exchange student when she was fifteen and got pregnant. When she told her parents, they forced her to give the baby up for adoption. The whole thing had the woman and the student elope to another village but they didn't have a child because the mother felt guilty for losing their first child. Then the mother falls asleep but has a heart attack where the hero uses his connections to get to the hospital via helicopter. It's also where the heroine figures out the man isn't a writer and he tells her the truth about everything. The heroine realizes the hero used her and she shuts herself off from him and all he can do is apologize. A month later, the heroine hears about the hero taking care of the mother but she's received news about being pregnant. She decides not to tell him since their conversations included him not wanting kids. During this one month period, the hero isn't excited over any woman and misses the heroine. Then he gets a call from her about meeting but he has cold tone over the phone with him. She reveals her pregnancy as well as she only expects a little help from him. She didn't expect him to propose marriage. However, the two have an argument and it ends with the heroine rejecting the hero's marriage and his demands. From then on, the hero works on trying to negotiate with the heroine but she won't take the bait. So, he works on finding a home for the heroine that meets her style and needs. He takes her there and though she loves it, she won't accept it. So, the hero walks out with the heroine going after him. The two finally sit down and have a talk about the present, past, and future concerning the three of them. The two finally confess their love and decide to marry for love. I found the harlequin comic to be a decent story.
