Im looking for books that have the main character falling for his/her boss. Can anyone think of any?

Double Standards by Judith McNaught 

I'll post more if I remember, I am sure Harlequin Presents has tons of books with this theme.

Harlequin Presents is the first that came to my mind too! That seems to be a popular them with them. Trying to think of some others though and drawing a blank :-(   a slight connectiong might be kathy love's 'i only have fangs for you' the 3rd in her young brothers vampire series - a woman gets hired at Sebastian's nightclub to destroy it for some radical group she's part of because he's a dangerous vampire who must be stopped. He's her boss though briefly! same with the book right before that 'fangs but no fangs' though Christian sorta volunteers for his lady love at her karaoke bar.

gosh there's one with an undercover cop who falls for the boss but can't think of the title..think Nora Robers has one with that same theme - hidden riches I think it's called.

I read a book by Jessica Hart called Business Arrangement Bride and it had some funny moments, he hired her to be his relationship coach and she moved in with him and was always telling him what he was doing wrong. It's a Harlequin Romance book. I also read a Desire title called The Boss's Christmas Seduction by Yvonne Lindsay that wasn't too bad.

I know I've read tons of Desire and romance titles that have this theme in them

There's also Guilty Pleasures (Seduction, Bk 1) by Laura Lee Guhrke, another historical with that similar theme.  It's a pretty good one; one of Guhrke's better books.

Do you like western type romances?  If so, what about the type where the ranch foreman falls in love with the ranch owner?  I know Judy Christenberry has a number of these.

February for Harlequin Presents Extra is Hired: For The Boss's Pleasure so those books would be something in that theme.  I get ebooks online sometimes and I actually read "Her Ruthless Italian Boss" by Christina Hollis yesterday and I liked it.  I have not read the other three but I'm sure they will be fun quick reads. Hope you find some books you like.

The Billionare Boss's Innocent Bride

Her Ruthless Italian Boss

Mediterranean Boss, Convenient Mistress

Mistress: Hired for the Billonaire's Pleasure

I haven't read them but, judging by the back cover, I have a few on my bookshelf that seem to go along those lines.

On Middle Ground - Sierra Rydell

Torrid Conflict - Angela Wells

Emmy and the Boss - Penny McCusker

The Italian's Count's Baby - Amy Andrews

Baby Jane Doe - Julie Miller

Beauty and the Boss - Lucy Gordon

Temptation's Kiss - Sandra Brown

Perfect Partners - Jayne Ann Krentz

I'm running a deal on Harlequin/Silhouette, but I'll apply that to any of the romances if you'll take a look.  :)
