Harlequin -- 2/3 the length of a regular novel. It’s third person but it feels like 1st person Kate. We are in her head throughout the book. We don’t know what the hero is thinking or feeling. The author uses this to create anguish and insecurities in Kate’s head. There are several conflicts where Kate “assumes” he doesn’t like her or want her - and the reader does not know. A separation happens because he “assumes” something inaccurate about her. If one of them had told the other their feelings, the conflicts would be resolved. I do not like that kind of plot. I’d rather see other interactions as they get to know each other instead of wrong assumptions.

I enjoyed the characters and other parts of the story -- especially the relationship between Alex (the daughter) and Kate.

The story jumped around too much to really get into the characters. They remain so at odds and antagonistic towards each other so long then suddenly, boom, we're in a "love" relationship. Didn't work for me which is sad because I normally love books by Ms. Hart.

When Kate Savage's ex-boyfriend claimed to their mutual employer that Kate was stalking him, she'd been asked to resign and wasn't given a glowing reference. This forced her to sign on with a temp agency, which put her in as Finn McBride's temp PA. Kate's vivacious personality quickly clashes with Finn's straight-laced regime, and neither seems overly impressed with the other. Kate's flabbergasted when her best friend sets her up on a blind-date and it turns out to be Finn, esp. after it's been well discussed how she hates her new boss! Finn's a widower and he's been coaxed by his sister to find a mother for his nine-year-old daughter, thus his agreeing to the blind date. When his housekeeper has to go out of town to nurse her ailing mother, Finn is forced to bring his daughter, Alex to the office, as it's a school holiday. Alex takes to Kate immediately and when Finn's PA is ready to return to her job, he asks Kate if she'll be a live-in nanny housekeeper, and then to pretend to be his fiancée while his meddling sister comes for a visit. It doesn't take long for Kate to have feelings for Finn, but it's pretty obvious to her that he's still very much in love with his late wife.

This was a marvelous read! I connected instantly with Kate and her adventures. She's the sort of girl who is constantly putting her pretty foot from her mouth. Finn is so devastatingly attractive and he's been through so much, she can't help but fall in love with him and his daughter. Finn doesn't believe there is another love of his life out there, even though Kate and her quirkiness charm him. I enjoyed this very much and rooted whole-heartedly for their HEA. I'm looking forward to Bella's story next!

It's not very often that a romance published under the Harlequin/Mills & Boon or similar labels has me laughing out loud, but this one did - and laughing with the book, not at it.

Kate Savage is kind and impetuous, and always helping out some creature in difficulty, whether it is a little old lady or a lost animal. Sometimes this leads her to do things which make difficulties for her employers.

Kate recently lost both her job and her boyfriend at the same time - he was a manager at the company where she worked, and she told him off for bullying a junior employee, whereby the rat didn't just dump her but got her fired. So currently she is temping. At the start of this book she is having trouble getting on with the new boss, Finn MacBride, for whom she is working as a temporary PA while the permanent holder of the post is recovering from a broken leg. He's handsome in a severe kind of way but strict and apparently unemotional and they don't get on well at all.

The book begins with the blind date from hell as two of Kate's friends introduce her to an "eligible widower" - and to the shock of both parties it turns out to be her boss. After a disastrous evening which is hideously embarrassing for both Kate and Finn - though quite amusing to the reader - you might think that not even in a twopenny romance novel could these two characters get together.

But then Kate finds a lost puppy on her way in to work on a day when the combination of a school training day and a housekeeper called away to deal with a sick mother forces Finn to bring his nine-year-old daughter Alex to the office. Although Finn complains about having his office turned into "a branch of animal rescue" Alex falls in love with the puppy, and suddenly things get complicated ...

Kate and Finn are rather more normal, less ridiculously perfect, and more realistic than the characters in most romance novels, and this book has been written with a good deal of sympathetic humour. Definately a cut above the average romance.
