How could she tell Alex the truth?
When Joanna Thomas heard from Liz, an old school friend, about the housekeeping job at her bother's ranch, Joanna accepted it to prove that she could succeed on her own.

I didn't fall for this one as much as I hoped.

Heroine was a teensy bit too clueless for me, but I admired her ability to fall in love with the big fathead hero anyway.

Hero was in love, it's just he is more in love with his own awesomeness than I think he is with the heroine.

Some sibling snark, and Huzzah and heralds music cue....

This has been on my TBR pile for the longest time, because really, the cover is so unappealing, the H looks like a grandfather, nothing at all like how he is described in the book, It quite put me off, but actually it's a charming story. The heroine is very likable, it's amusing how she is very irreverent towards the hero, when she is supposed to be playing the part of the housekeeper.

The heroine is from a wealthy family and is at a lose end. She runs into a school acquaintance and they have di
