    1. "One repentant sinner." Luke was there, big and dark, and in his arms was a bedraggled, thin but very much alive Mog. "He's been badly frightened, he's hungry, and I think he wants plenty of tender loving care, but other than that, he's fine." Luke said calmly as he deposited the miaowing cat in her arms. "LUKE!" She stood in dazed wonder as he turned, Mog clinging like a monkey around her chest and neck, his two front paws resting either side of her throat as he purred an express train of greet [...]


    2. On the strength of Naksed's review and accolades for a true hero I had to read this. Real, honorable and loving heroes aren't exactly thick in the ground in HarleyLand especially when they are part Italian.Mary Sue Martyr almost torpedoes her chance of happiness with nice guy hero.The h is hired to put on a mega opening for a yacht the hero is introducing in honor of his father. It has to be a stupendous event, and the 28 year old heroine is a top notch promoter/marketing expert.The heroine is p [...]


    3. Verra predictable & so, for lack of bettah explanations. It lacked the intensity & slightly melodwamatic tone that her marriage-in-peril stories have. Made me almost miss her overwrought, juvenile, obnoxious, earplug-wearing heroines. Almost. And the HEA is like those public svc tv plugs that urge peeps to donate 5 cents per day, to be an adoptive parent to some Gawd-4saken kids in far-flung countries. H/h end up w/ more adopted kids than any I've come across in HPlandia. Well I give it [...]


    4. Damn if there isn't something in my eye. Must be dust. Or allergies.Here's the thing. For a good portion of the book, I found Josie and her event-planning workaholism annoying and Luke overbearing in a Harlequin traditional alpha way. But once I got to chapter 9 things changed and and then chapter 10 happened. And the epilogue. And the dust. Or allergies. Best part is it was $1.99 in the massive Harlequin sale. Least best part - digital typos of which there are more than a few.


    5. Beautiful story. Josie's situation and reason for refusing to be involved with Luke were realistic. And I'm glad that instead of glossing over it, Luke made an effort to understand and resolve it. Another Helen Brooks winner!


    6. Josie had a tragic accident at 15 and had to live 13 years in agony knowing she won't ever bore a child. Because of this fact, she struggles to keep men at arm's length and to give her job 100% of her attention. Luke Hawkton, a highly powerful businessman, wanted an extraordinary launch to his Father's yacht so he addressed her company and chose her to arrange it. While reading this novel, I really felt the heroine's pain. Every flicker of emotion and reaction was excused. Her struggle inwardly [...]
