How can Allison live in her boss's house when she secretly feels this way about him? But there's no way she can refuse Mark's request that she feel in as nanny for his niece. This is Sept 2005 book in the Texas Cattleman's Club: The Secret Diary series.
Ms. Jackson does it again! I am an avid reader of her books and I have enjoyed all the ones I have read thus far. This book was no exception. Still it did not take away from the story. This was classic man and women care for each other but they keep it to themselves. But once they were honest with themselves then love came right on in. I am big on the "tugging at the heart strings" factor, in this book it was Mark having to deal with his past, his brother's death and the his role in his niece's life (caregiver vs father figure). I enjoyed it very much and read it in a day!
I love Brenda Jackson's story. The problem with some of her Silhouette Desire stories is their too short and usually part of a continuation series. So, unless you read the whole series you might miss out on something or you might not get the whole idea behind the series. However, I enjoyed the heated tension between Alli and Mark. Once they were under his roof together it was like they couldn't stop the electric currents they kept passing to one another. A short and sweet romance.
