Christmas with Her Boss was a cute little Christmas romance set in rural Austrailia. The hero is a wealthy businessman who has closed himself off from all emotions until he is forced by circumstances to spend Christmas with his personal assistant at her family farm. The heroine is a really nice, intelligent and hard working woman who is very realistic about the hero's place in her life. She starts to care for him but doesn't see how they could make it work since he is so closed off to feelings a ...more

Meg Jardine works for a young, rich and very handsome man who lives in Australia just for three months in a year. Their relationship is strictly professional and they have never seen each other in a different way from what they really are: a boss and his personal assistant. This Christmas, though, things are going to be very dissimilar from the past. Because of a plane strike, the loner and aloof boss, William McMaster, is forced to spend Christmas time at Meg’s farm with her family, and they ri ...more

I loved this book. I started it yesterday and immediately fell in love. I even sulked a little when it was bedtime because I wanted to keep reading. Then I got up early this morning, hoping to get some work done, but read straight through to the end instead.

Charming is a word that comes immediately to mind. The hero is deliciously growly and withdrawn, but we get just enough of a glimpse into his POV to get to know him. And the heroine is fun and a good match for him. She doesn't take his crap,

What a fun holiday book! Strong heroine, grouchy, sexy boss. Very emotional story and the heroine's family was awesome. I loved the heroine's grandmother and her brother. Loved the farm and Christmas in Australia. It was one of those romances you couldn't put down. Sweet, romantic, with characters who aren't perfect but who are perfect to read about. It made me feel warm and fuzzy inside, which is just how I like to feel this time of year. I highly recommend this book!

This was a random pick from the depths of my TBR (literally random, as in choosing a number with an online generator and seeing what it corresponded to on Calibre).

It's (obviously) a Christmas story. Meg Jardine is billionaire William McMaster's Australian PA. She gets paid a really excellent (and much needed) salary for being completely at his beck and call and solving all his problems during the short periods when he's in Australia. The latest has fallen right before Christmas, and he's due t

4.5 stars. Read this because of Shannon Stacey's review. I think she was dead on. I really enjoyed this book. Loved all the characters, but had to wonder why the heroine felt she had to resign her position, especially given how infrequently she saw her boss.

Otherwise, loved the story, the characters, the emotions conveyed in the characterizations. We see the heroine caring for her family and their reaction to it - the way they try to care for her in return. ANd how she comes to love the hero in
A simple, traditional romance set in rural Australia about a billionaire who has to spend Christmas with his assistant when an airline workers' strike affects his plans to fly home for the holidays. William, the billionaire businessman, is a serious jerk at first -- how is he supposed to not work or not have an internet connection for three days? -- but as he spends more time with Meg, his assistant, at her family's farm, he starts to soften. He also realizes that after a lifetime of having a fa ...more

The heroine has the perfect job--she only works when her boss is in the country. For 3 or 4 weeks, she can drop her real life, focus exclusively on work, and then when he skips town again, she can go back home. But then everything blows up when the airline people go on strike just before Christmas, all the hotels get booked and the boss--our hero--has nowhere to stay. So she invites him home to the family dairy farm with her. There's no Internet, few amenities and lots of cows. Also a grandma an ...more

I didn't expect Christmas With Her Boss to be as good as it was, I was pleasantly surprised by it.
It had its ups and downs like always but I found myself unable to stop reading, and after not being able to as much as look at a book for over two weeks it sure seemed like a miracle! lol

I would indeed recommend it. It's sweet and a little heartbreaking and gaaaaahh totally swoon-worthy. ;)

I picked this book up for a quick romantic read that I hoped would put a smile on my face. I was not disappointed. It was a good romance story that wasn't too cliche or over the top in sensuality or anything else. The storyline isn't necessarily unique, however the setting definitely was and I enjoyed it.

Very cute Christmas romance from one of my favorite writers. The romance does seem to develop very quickly, which requires a swift change in the hero, but it comes across as very believable and is mostly because of the short length. Definitely recommend this one.

A pretty clean, cheesy romance, but cute for the holidays. I saw this one advertised on a blog and thought, "why not?" Set in Australia, it was a different kind of Christmas story, but still kind of fun.

This was a sweet, wonderful romance. Nothing more than kisses and a little petting, but I enjoyed the setting and the characters. So much story happening in such a small space!

Writing romance sounds fascinating. Huh?

I'm a writer. I'm boring. Day after day I sit behind a word processor making up people in my head. Why do I do it? I love it. My husband, Dave, gets up in the morning, puts on a suit and heads out into the ice and cold of Ballarat's winter. (Sadly I live in one of the tiny parts of Australia that qualifies as cold.) I make myself another cup of coffee, head
