I loved it. I read quite a few HPs this weekend, but this was easily, easily, easily the best. Unrequited love is one of my favorite themes, and this one just dealt it out like crazy. I wasn’t too thrilled with the last Helen Brooks I read (THE BILLIONAIRE’S VIRGIN BRIDE) but this one had my stomach in knots pretty much all the way through waiting for these two to get together.
This is the back cover copy — but, like the title, is a bit over-the-top.
As far as secretary Gina Leighton is concerned, billionaire businessman Harry Breedon has never shown more than a professional interest in her. Why should he? Plain and plump, Gina knows she’s hardly trophy-wife material!
But Harry has noticed herâ€”sexy curves and allâ€”and now that Gina has another job offer, he’ll have to act fast. This handsome tycoon is determined to seduce her into stayingâ€”even if that means making her his wife!
One thing I like about Helen Brooks’s heroes is that they are nice guy, usually. Harry fits that — and what’s interesting about this book is that, typically, it’s the heroine who does a lot of soul-searching and changing in her outlook on life. But in this one, Gina is determined to leave because she knows her heart will just be trampled by the kind of man Harry is, and Harry is the one who has the most character development.
Oh, hey, look at this — they have a “browse the book” feature that you can share on your site at eHarlequin. Hee.
Let’s see if it totally effs up my blog.
Up next (okay, I’ve already started, but now it goes into my car as my “I’m stuck waiting for someone and have a couple of minutes to read” book)
