This is an older book, but hard to find, so I listed it for the Janet Daily collectors. Quick and easy read.
from back cover
When Tamara "borrowed" company funds to help her invalid mother, she had every intention of replacing the money before anyone discovered the loss. The the company was taken over by the ruthless entrepreneur Bickford Rutledge.
Bick was a man used to getting what he wanted, and he had wanted beautiful, aloof Tamara from the moment he first saw her. when he discovered her secret, he offered her a choice: prison or marriage.
she had a choice that was no choice at all. She escaped the law's revenge only to lose her heart to the man who had bought her-body and soul.
Reviewer: "email@example.com" (America) -
I really enjoy this book, and I find myself re-reading it often. Basically, Tamara is a beautiful accountant at a large firm. Bickford Rutledge is her handsome boss(he recently took over the company). He wants her from the moment he sees her. Tamara's mother is dying, and Tamara received a loan from her former bosses, to help with the expenses. To Bick though, it looks like she has stolen money from the company. He fires her, and then tells her that she can either marry him, or go to prison. She, of course, marries him. He treats her rather rudely for awhile, and then begins to fall in love with her. However, there is always that doubt in his mind that she may just be a money hungry trollop. Needless to say, there is a rash decision made on her part, that proves to be a test of their love. This is a good book, even though it is very far-fetched at times.
