Both characters are wonderful...
Ruth is very compassionate and lovable in nature.
And Franco, well, his honesty, care, kindness, sense of humour, and wit is incredible,
not to mention his non-chalance.
Here are a few excerpts:

The time when he walk into Ruth's parent's house, to meet her - and is shocked to find that Ruth lied to her parents that they were married:

I really liked this book and was ever so thankful for the Epilogue. The sexy scenes were sexy. The dialgoue was often funny and sharp. The plot was, well, two out of three "ain't bad."

I still ended my reading with an overall good feeling and that makes it a goodread for me.

A charming sweet refreshing romance. An innocent naive woman meets an experienced sexy man = sexual fling. You have read it all before....right? Wrong! This one is told with such sweetness & passion that it reads something like a fairy tale. More emotions & feelings go into the scenes than sexual details (you don't always need to have a play by play of every sex scene) which is wonderful as this lets you an old Doris Day or Cary Grant movie where the married couple ...more

This was just wonderful. Great characters. Humor. Sweetness.

Franco is Ruth's boss' boss. He takes an instant liking to her and invents an assignment that has both of them working together. A lot of misunderstandings occur in the minds of both characters and when Ruth realises that she's pregnant she leaves the job and goes home to her parents.

Franco follows and in the end he admits his love. I just adore that scene where he describes himself having a tantrum like a toddler.

One thing that mildly

Ruth has come to work in London believing it will help her to grow as a person. Being a country vicar's daughter, Ruth has always had a compassionate nature, but wanted to be able to add some spide to her life. Living and working in London seemed to be the answer, until the owner of the magazine she worked for arrived on the scene and turned her world around.

Franco was not really looking for love, but finding Ruth at the magazine he owned, he felt a strong desire to have her. Getting her to work

Ruth hat ein behütetes Leben geführt. Als sie nach London zieht, ist jeder Tage in Abenteuer für sie. Durch ihren Job bei der Redaktion "Issues" lernt sie ihren Chef Franco Leoni kennen. Als der auch noch mit ihr zusammen einen Artikel schreiben will, merkt sie wie sie ihm immer mehr verfällt.

Mal wieder eine Geschichte über ein armes braves Mädchen, die einen Frauenschwarm zum opfer fällt. Die Geschichte hat mir nicht so gut gefallen. Einfach nur deshalb wie schnell eine Frau ihre Werte vergisst

The heroine went to London to grow up and find a job, she fell in love with her boss, the hero. They kept their relationship secret and when she found out she was pregnant, she was shocked. Thinking that their relationship was going no where, she returns to her home town pregnant and alone but the hero shows up.. he won't let her go.

Ruth got on my nerves. Dont you know the word communication? Talk to your man, dont just run away and dont assume you know what he is and what he is thinking. Dont put words on his mouth based on what you think you knew about him. Jeez!
