4 Stars! ~ It was an odd situation Victoria found herself in. The man she married had been in a coma for the past two years, and his very grown-up children were rather protective of their generous stepmother. But now that the girls were out of the house, and Jason the youngest is in law school, Victoria yearns for a bit of a life for herself; after all she’s only 25. So Victoria applied for a job as companion/helper for an older gentleman confined to a wheelchair. Lucas Grey wants only the best ...more

Her stepson, Peter, tried to dissuade her but she was ready to start live again.

Lucas never met a woman like Victor
This is one of the books which contains insights on what the hero is thinking. Victoria was married to a guy who was quite old and has plenty of step children (some as old as herself). After her husband has an accident, she takes to the care of her family and finally realizes that she's young enough to want to do what she wants herself and gets to work for a crippled man whose son is her stepson's boss. She has a secret and doesn't let herself open to him but he's determined to rid her of the bu ...more

a fun, light n very nice read. where it lost 2 stars ? it was slow n very archaic. it seemed older than the 90s
Susan, Susan, Susan! You are 2 for 2!
Ms. Napier can write quite the charming romance. Her heroine's a quaint and sweet, and her heroes get in over their heads and are all in. Let's face it, a hero that adores our tiny h's makes a heart go pitter patter.

At 25, Victoria is the step-mother to five children. She has accidentally applied for a job at the house one of her stepson's girlfriend lives. Victoria will be the companion to the step-father of the house. Yes, lots of step-siblings abound; they

I thought Victoria should have just told the truth and not kept her stepson's secrets. I understood her loyalty but hey, she deserved a happy life too and her stepson should have recognized what a spot he had her in.

Another emotionly love story. I love Susan's sense of humour!
What a book!!! I've read it many times and each time I come away with new respect for Susan Napier.
