Crushed but unwilling to show it, Victoria has made the decision to remove herself from the one place she calls home. Hopelessly in love with her employer, she is convinced he will never feel the same since he has never shown any interest in her. Determined to start over somewhere else and nurse her broken heart, she packs her bags in preparation to leave, while letting everyone believe she is moving to the new house that J.T., her boss, has built and to resume her job as his housekeeper. Confronting him with her resignation is her last step before walking away into her new, lonely life. But she didn’t count on J.T. not being willing to let her go….
J.T. is having a conundrum. He desires his sexy housekeeper Victoria, but his morals keep him from making a move on an employee. That would be an abuse of his power. But when she says she’s leaving, he’s left with no choice but to make her stay. But for the right reasons.
No surprises, no big controversy or betrayal, just the roadblocks both of them put up. A guilty pleasure that I thoroughly enjoyed and will read again, it was that satisfying. Very sensual and erotic, with a hint of dark passions and desires both J.T. and Victoria kept hidden from one another and themselves. A keeper.
Standing in the barn, looking out over his ranch, J.T. Courage knows there is nowhere else on earth he’d rather be. He has his brothers, a successful horse business and a new home on the land that’s belonged to his family for generations. The only thing missing is someone to share it all with. And he has just the woman in mind.
Victoria Abrams is leaving the man she loves. She can no longer pretend he will one day see her as more than a friend or housekeeper. But J.T. is not about to let the sexy woman who has tempted him for months with her lush body and beautiful face slip away without a fight.
