But for secretary/ companion, read dogsbody, Janna thought bitterly when her employer was being more than usually temperamental and unkind.

This story is about a sweet young girl raised in an orphanage. She is smart sweet and innocent. The hero a Sheik no less fall for her and wants her to play a role of fiancée for him beloved grandmother. A cute story but no real passion that violet is known for.
წიგნების შესახებ
საოცრად თბილი წიგნია <3
წიგნის კითხვა დავიწყე და სანამ ბოლომდე არ ჩავიკითხე, თავი ვერ დავანებე. ისედაც პატარა წიგნია, მაგრამ ამას არ აქვს მნიშვნელობა. ძალიან მომეწონა, ძალიან ძალიან.
