Pamela Su (thebluebaroness) | 4 comments It's driving me crazy. It's been a decade. I can't remember the title or the author.

The male love interest is a rich boss who is disparaging about the heroine. She overhears him calling her a mushroom. She enters the room saying something like "Greetings from the mushroom"

For some reason I think she is on crutches. I'm not sure why I think this. I could possibly be wrong about this.

She has to host a party on his behalf.

Also, it's possible she shortens her name that it sounds manly.

This could be a M&B book from the late 80s or 90s.

Pamela Su, why does her boss call her a mushroom?

What's her job? Type of company?

Location - U.S./country, big city/small town/region, etc.?

Pamela Su (thebluebaroness) | 4 comments He was disparaging her looks because she dressed plainly. He was hosting a function and was short a hostess. His uncle(maybe?) suggested her and his response was that she looked like a mushroom (all brown and drab)

Generally, in these romances the business the hero is in tends to be vague. I do not recall what it was.

Also no idea about location whether it was us or uk. I want to say UK but can't be sure. :(
