This book pissed me off.

First the backblurb (pay attention!):

In theory, Ellery Dunant is the last woman you'd expect to find on world-renowned playboy Larenz de Luca's to-bed list. Ellery has met Larenz's type before. There's no way a stallion like him would be interested in a plain-Jane housekeeper like her….

So why does Larenz find himself risking his cool and dropping his guard to spend the night with her?

He unleashes his secretary from hell, who doesn't even let her reach the house after 24 hour overseas flight,

I quite enjoyed this one. I agree with some of the comments regarding how the heroine loses control of her senses every time the hero comes near, but I guess that's often a given with a Harlequin novel.

This was an unusual premise and I would have liked to see a few people in the story get their comeuppance. And, hey - at least the heroine didn't end up pregnant in this one!
