Theirs was a strictly professional relationship...until the night Emily Reynolds finally let her hair down. And the tycoon took full advantage by stealing a kiss.

to whom it may concern:

please excuse emily from work today. she has so many physical ailments, i felt it was best to put her to bed immediately. among her complaints are: flushed thighs, racing blood, loss/faltering of breath, redness of cheeks, melting bones, burning skin, racing pulse, and "explosions." using, i have concluded she has either a panic disorder, a snake bite, dermatitis, or herpes simplex. at any rate, i felt it was best to keep her home, away from zac, in whose presenc

I'm glad the title has a question mark at the end, because what the heck kind of message would it have without that little squiggle of doubt (or even worse, if it had been an exclamation point). I was once talking to a coworker's wife about the rough work week that was happening, and she casually tossed out that all I'd have to do was get married and then I wouldn't have to work at all. I didn't know what to say to that and suppressed my immediate urge to vent a spittle-filled "pssh" of

I take whatever book I am reading with me wherever I go, so it was inevitable that someone was going to catch me reading Promoted to Wife? in public. It just happened to be at our local grocery store. I am well known there because I cook for our family every night, and I love fresh produce and ingredients. I am at the store daily. So when Diane, one of the cashiers, saw me reading Promoted to Wife?, she was quite happy to tease me, and I took it with good grace. But as I walked away, she said, “ ...more

Oy, Emily!

Emily Prescott is a professional life coach with a degree from Queensland University. She is also the wife of billionaire real estate and technology magnate Zac Prescott.

Oy, all of you readers out there. It has been a very busy week for me -- Zac has been running all over Sydney, visiting his condominium projects. Let me tell you, I could do without all these reporters asking us about empty residences and

As a romantic fantasy the affair-with-the-boss is at once more and less understandable than most formulas of the genre. On the one hand, it is relatively plausible -- many women work, and most workers at some point have bosses, and people do have workplace romances. You are a lot more likely to be groped by a supervisor than carried off by a sheik. On the other hand, rendering this scenario romantic seems a bit difficult. Of course being ravished by raiders of whatever ilk (pirates, sheiks, feud ...more
Zac Prescott knows there is more to his assitant Emily Reynolds, than she lets show. With her dowdy clothes, pinned up hair, and glasses that often fall down her nose, Zac wants to uncover the true Emily.

Emily has always been attracted to her boss, but her past has proven that if she wants to be take seriously in the work place she has to down play her looks. When a kiss exposes the passion behind her facade, Zac comes up with a plan of a seduction even if his seducee is bieng difficult.

Fun read

While this romance followed a pretty standard format, it really didn't flick my switch. The heroine had huge self-esteem issues, and this, coupled with the huge power imbalance of having a relationship with her boss, made it seem more like a 50s pairing than a 2011 one. Emily seemed to have a few control issues as well, needing complete control over all aspects of her life, but then strangely unable to control herself around her boss, Zac. Either start a relationship or don't; don't just dither ...more

Actually a pretty decent read, for a Harlequin novel! The writing was good, the characters were well-formed, and the plot was interesting and moved along well. I'll definitely be checking out more books from this author.

After kissing her drunk boss, Emily Reynolds quits via email. When persistent knocking erupts at her door, she finds said boss, Zac Prescott demanding to know why she quit.

Although he doesn't reveal it, Zac remembers every sort second of that kiss. The kiss that woke him up. Zac is known to love many women, but no woman has ever gotten his attention like his assistant. The assistant that handles all his day to day needs. The one he's never truly seen before.

When she tells him she's going back t

Not too bad if you could subtract the steam in the book. Like one reader said the heroine was all about control except around the hero where it was loads of sex.
This was the first book of Paula roe's that I've had the pleasure to read. I will definitely be watching for more from her. I loved her style.

Are books becoming a bore to me? Or was this just THAT boring? Another Harlequin rushed job.
