Launch - Note from the Author
Sometimes you have to leave what you’ve always known and set off on an adventure to truly learn what you’re capable of. And sometimes when the odds seem against you and you persevere…it works out better than you could have ever imagined.
This is what happens when Lea Romes finds out that she’s inherited a wedding island in the Mediterranean. Not even knowing that she had family in Greece, she is eager to find out more about her ancestors. But when a tall, sexy man crosses her path there’s a chance for an island romance...

"Fun, easy to read, romantic story. This story had great characters and I loved that the setting of the book was in Greece on a little island. . . . I really enjoyed reading it!"
Thoughts of a Blonde - Excerpt
Just then Lea noticed a seaplane preparing to take off over the calm blue sea. But it was the man in the dark suit standing on the wooden dock, with his back to her, that caught her attention. She took in his immense height and broad, muscled shoulders accentuated by his suit jacket—a very fine set of threads. It probably cost more than she made in a month. Definitely.
His dark hair was trimmed in a short neat cut just like in his online photos. Not a strand was out of place. She wondered if he liked his life to be just as neat and orderly. As she continued to stare, she imagined what it’d be like to comb her fingertips through his hair. Her fingers tingled with temptation. She tightened her hold on the steering wheel.
Jorie Loves A Story - Review
"What I loved most about how Ms Faye writes her stories is that she gives her characters obstacles they must learn to face together and to find solutions too which allows both parties to find equal ground. . . . I love reading her romances because her style of telling them is uplifting and full of second chances - where new beginnings can thrive and where people can re-write their own future . . . . I am dearly eager to see what becomes of this series - especially when we get to step inside the shoes of Popi and Stasia! I have a feeling there are many more surprises in store to be learnt and overall, I truly love where this series is set."
Colorimetry - Excerpt
It was late afternoon by the time Lea had given Xander the full tour. He was the first potential investor who had stuck around this long. Lea’s hopes soared. He had many questions about the island and she did her best to answer them. She was proud of her little island. As she’d spoken of the various aspects of the island, Mr. Marinakos made notes on his digital tablet.
This is going to work. This is going to work.
She struggled not to grin. After all, nothing was final yet—
“Miss Romes, I’d like to make you an offer.”
Yes! Yes! Yes!
Inside the Mind of an Avid Reader - Review
"Carrying The Greek Tycoon's Baby by Jennifer Faye is the first book in the Greek Island Brides Series. . . . This is a sweet and pleasant read. "
E-Romance News - Excerpt
He liked Lea. She was pleasant, and when she smiled, her whole face lit up. And it had been a long time since he’d taken time for a social life. He’d prided himself on being able to amass his fortune before the age of thirty-five. But it had come at a price—his work schedule meant he hardly had a normal life.
There was something about this island—something so relaxing. Or perhaps it was the company. Xander’s gaze met hers. “I hope that even though we couldn’t do business together we can still be friends.”
Surprise lit up her eyes, but in a blink it was gone. “Um...sure. No hard feelings.”
Wishful Endings - Review
"CARRYING THE GREEK TYCOON'S BABY is a sweet and light romance set on a Greek Island between a poor heiress who is just trying to keep the island as it has been and a wealthy businessman who wants to buy the island. Harlequin Romance fans will enjoy the humor and back-and-forth tension of this one!"
Stacking My Book Shelves! - Excerpt
Even though the sun had slipped below the horizon, leaving a pink hue in its wake, Xander wasn’t ready to end his time with Lea.
They strolled down to the beach. No one was around, and they enjoyed the surf and sand alone.
“I really should get back to work,” Lea said, but her voice lacked desire.
“I should, too. But why don’t we play hooky this evening?”
Andi's Book Reviews - Review
"Infinity Island is definitely the kind of place that I would love to escape to. I love the idea of a place that is so magical that everyone who has ever been married there has stayed together forever. . . . It's a quick read . . . makes for a fun escape and isn't overly racy. I'll be on the lookout for the next two books in the series."
It's All About the Romance - Excerpt
TWO PINK LINES…
Three separate results…
Every time Lea thought about it, which was quite often, she started to hyperventilate. This couldn’t be happening. Not now. Not when her life was in such an uproar.
But she’d had all of the early symptoms, from her missed cycle to tender breasts. As much as she wanted to live in the land of denial, she couldn’t. There was now a baby to take into consideration. And a man who didn’t have a clue he was about to become a father. Well, he would if he’d answer his phone.

"I give Carrying the Greek Tycoon’s Baby a well deserved five plus stars. I can not wait to read book two from the Greek Island Brides series. I highly recommend this book! It is most definitely not one to be missed."
Becky on Books - Excerpt
She tilted her chin upward to watch the helicopter descend to the helipad not far from her office. Whoever this was, they weren’t a guest.
Her body tensed as the long seconds dragged out. She never knew it could take so long for a chopper to land. But she knew that in reality not much time had passed at all. It was just her anxiety that seemed to have slowed the world down as she waited to see what new problem awaited her.
And then the door to the helicopter opened. And…
The breath of anticipation hitched in her throat. And…
Harlie's Books - Review
"... Another winner from Ms. Faye and the Harlequin Romance line. . . . Ms. Faye has written a brilliant billionaire story that will tug on your emotions, have you believe in a true love romance with a bit of magic woven in. . . . Loved it. I really didn’t want the book to end. Lea and Xander were a perfect couple and I can’t wait to hear more about them in the other books."
Reading On The Edge - Excerpt
She glanced at the clock on the stove. “If you don’t hurry, you’ll miss the ferry. It’s the only one today.”
“Is this the way it’s going to be?”
She turned her full attention to him. “How what is going to be?”
“You and me. How do I even know the baby is mine?”
“I’d like to think that no one would lie about such an important thing. But you obviously don’t trust me...
Hallie Reads - Review
"The romance proves fun as the drama unfolds around Lea and Xander. I enjoyed seeing the pair sorting through the challenges before them, and I think a reader in need of a quick, contemporary romance will, too."
Teatime and Books - Excerpt
THINGS WOULD GET BETTER.
They had to.
Lea Romes refused to accept any other alternative.
She pushed her chair back from the desk with its insurmountable pile of paperwork. In this modern age of technology, she thought paperwork would be a thing of the past. But alas, it seemed as though dealing with written documents would be a constant while the digital correspondence and spreadsheets just added to the burden.
At least she got to work in paradise as a wedding planner...
