I like books where the hero may be saying one thing to protect himself from rejection (don't we all do this at sometime) but his actions are showing his devotion. Of course, the mixed message confuses our heroine but it all comes right in the end and we have the happily-ever-after ending without wondering how in the world she could have fallen for this guy.
from the back of the book:
For Romillie, family always came first. So when her mother took ill, Romillie immediately put aside her plans to go to university and stayed home, where she was needed. But now her mother is on the mend, and Romillie has met dashing businessman Naylor Cardell.
Romillie would never have imagined that a high-flying CEO like Naylor would be interested in an ordinary girl like her. Now Naylor says he has a question for her. Dare she hope that the confirmed bachelor might ask for her hand in marriage?
