It is down to the last 2 months of the 2 years set aside for Kit to find a husband before her mother's fortune is divided amongst charities. If she marries the fortune stays in the family in the hands of Kit's father & brothers. So the pressure is one. Up to now Kit hasn't found that TRUE Love she's been looking for. And if Dad hadn't run off all of her other romances this wouldn't have happened. He didn't think any were good enough at the time. It's a different story now.
Pendleton is out to prove to everyone, especially his ex-wife and himself, that he can make it and be successful once again. He had it all once- but then things fell apart, so now he is having to start all over again.
Pendleton has been hired on by Kit's father to run the family million dollar business. Kit has run away for the umpteenth time and it is now Pendleton's time to go after her and bring her home. Is this part of his job description? Having no choice Pendleton takes out after Kit. Kit really puts Pendleton through it but he never breaks. This intrigues Kit and she wants to get to know more of Pendleton. One way is by moving in with him (without his approval but she is the boss' daughter so what is he to do). In the end, who is chasing who? The fireworks start!
Not one of Bevarly's better books. Characters not very well developed- female protagonist, Kit is in fact not very likeable and it is hard to understand why the hero falls in love with her. However, it is a fast read with Bevarly's typical sensuality.
