There are so many words that you could use to describe Kristina Fortune: stubborn, hardheaded, coldhearted, rich, and prissy. Those are just a few, but they are also a mask hidding who she really is. As the youngest child she always had to use her intelligence and her smart tongue to be heard. When Kristina heard her that her grandma Kate left her a B&B in California, she thought that this was a project that could be all hers and would have her name on it and not the entire Fortune family. Kristina takes a leave from Fortune Cosmetics and heads to California. Kristina thinks she can waltz in and take over, but she meets her match in the half owner of the B&B Max Cooper. Max has no intention of letting Kristina take over the place. From the moment that she arrived Kristina managed to get Max and the rest of the staff to hate her and her coldhearted ways. Kristina manages to hit her heard and lose her memory. Max and the staff figure this is a perfect opportunity to let "Kris" see the B&B through the staffs eyes. So, he tells her she is the maid and he puts her to work. Max never thought that he would fall for this new tender loving Kris. What happens when she figures out the truth?

Fortune's Children books continue to the story and I love that! Very good story.
Kristina Fortune always tried her best to make a name for herself, and she sees her chance in the Bed & Breakfast which her grandmother left her half ownership. Upon arrival she's ready to make many changes and leave her mark. Max Cooper didn't have much interest in his half-ownership until that pushy Fortune woman showed up. And when an accident leaves her with amnesia he thinks he sees the way to win.
May 1997 published. A good book.
