This is probably one of my favorite by Sandra Marton. Of course it's kind of cliche'd. It's standard boss/secretary or actually PA/Executive assistant. Also typical brown sparrow, as the hero refers to the heroine, who turns into a beautiful song bird with a new wardrobe and hairdo. It also has bickering and funny repartee. So for those who don't like any of those tropes you can put this on your to avoid shelf.
For myself I enjoy the bickering, seeing it as the H's resistance to falling in love o...more
Sandra Marton is my favorite Harlequin Presents author and this book has one of those conflicted attracted-against-his-will heroes she writes so well, so it started off promisingly. Then it all dissolved into bickering and mind-changing - they're going to get together! Then they're not! Then they are! Then they're not! Then they do, but they shouldn't have, so let's pretend they didn't! Sigh. Props for an American hero and some laughs--both rare in current Presents--but they couldn't save it.
Bueno, es una historia típica de las novelas de harlequin, jefe que se enamora de su eficiente, activa, pro activa, inteligente y genio secretaria, que lleva casi un año trabajando con el pero que no se había dado cuenta que la vida sin ella no seria sino un completo caos, secretaria que ve en su jefe un verdadero mujeriego no en el mal sentido de la palabra ya que cuando anda con una conquista le es fiel hasta que la cosa termina, ella es la encargada de mandar las flores, los regalos, hacer la...more
Como ya saben las secretarias de Harlequin son todas eficientes,maravillosas,trabajadoras,competentes y perfectas ah y por poco lo olvido unas genios.Eso sin olvidar que los jefes siempre son guapos,mujeriegos,interesantes,inteligentes,de mal humor y muy pero muy sexy.Con cuerpazo y todo.Pues esta novela no es la excepción.

Jake y Emily son todo eso con la diferencia que Emily es un patito feo o eso cree ella.De hecho lo mismo opina Jake hasta que uno de sus amigos nota que es una mujer guapa.All...more
Just so-so. Even for a Harlequin!

Got it from library on my Kindle. So no money invested.
There is a LOT of back and forth between Jake and Emily that can get pretty frustrating. Neither of them can make up their minds about whether or not they want to be in a relationship with each other, and when they finally do decide to be together, it's really anti-climatic.

On the other hand, they're both crazy and in denial so it's actually amusing sometimes to watch Jake get jealous of the terrible men Emily goes on dates with.

I loved this book! Sandra writes amazing characters, and this book was no exception. It was very different for a Presents, and I adored it to pieces. Witty banter, characters who just can't resist each other no matter how they try, and that lovely push/pull of forbidden attraction. It just doesn't get any better than this.
This is a book.

Beauty is skin deep. She is a real Plain Jane, with an efficient no nonsense approach. This is an ugly duckling waiting to transform into a swan. He is the one doing the transforming, only to realize that he wants to keep her to himself. A romantic, sensual, fun read.
One of the VERY FEW perks of working at a bookstore is the chance to read M&B for free during quiet time when there's no customer in the shop and the boss is out of the office.

I live in a small town in Connecticut with my husband. I was 15, he was 18 when we met! Our house is bright and sun-filled, with deep woods behind us that are home to native wildlife from deer to fishers to coyotes. Wild turkeys plod through our yard; hawks fly overhead.

I've been a writer, one way or another, all my life. Before I could read, I made up poems and my mom wrote them down for me. In e...more
