    1. A pretty great hero but I couldn't stomach the martyr, prideful, TSTL heroine. The book lacked a very needed confrontation between the heroine and her abusive, user, leech, amoral, nightmare of a sister, and go back in time also to resolve the lingering issues of their father's cruel favoritism of one sibling over another, and brainwashing of the heroine like a Manchurian candidate to become her sister's lifelong keeper.Instead, the author resolved the dilemma by having the parasitic sister leec [...]

    2. I rarely read Harlequin Romance, but Jessica Steele is on auto buy for me. This author can create sexual tension! She creates British heroes that remind me of Cary Grant. They are alpha yet sophisticated and debonaire. Always shrewd, fairly cynical, possessive, protective, and passionate. But first, they put the gal through the wringer, because they suspect them of some misdeed. When they realize how wrong they were, it's no holds barred to get the girl, often by sweating it out and groveling. E [...]

    3. 3.5 starsEnjoyable quick read. The heroine was a sweetie, but the sister tended to get on my nerves. I love these older Jessica Steele books. They're a bit formulaic, but they work. She has a way of building great chemistry between H/h. If you like vintage Harlequins, this one should work.

    4. This is an OK read. I generally like office romances in vintage setting but somehow I found the H really rude and overbearing sometimes. His whole attitude of not accepting back the money from h by shaking her, grabbing her hard or calling her a bitch was idiotic.There is a near rape scene in this as well which leaves the h shaken but within 15 mins of this she accepts his marriage proposal.This is not one of Jessica Steele's best.

    5. A nice story. Gerry works hard trying to support herself and her twin sister Teddy. Her nieces add to the fray. Crawford is her boss and sees she is wearing herself out, even when she can't. An enjoyable book.
