After her husband's betrayal, event planner Naomi Delacroix is getting in touch with her inner tigress and trying to go from doormat to Rambo. Wealthy businessman Royce Powell, the most eligible bachelor in Dallas, has loved Naomi ever since he saw her at a party she put together. Now Royce has hired her as the planner for his mother's extravagant birthday event. His demand that she work only for him during this period guarantees some quality time together. Royce is handsome, attentive, and romantic--in other words, the perfect man. However, Naomi's experiences with a fickle father and a philandering husband make her doubt Royce and his intentions. Secondary characters, including Naomi's twin cousins, the cleverly named Kera and Mel, add many humorous moments. Although the subtext,
learn to trust, is a serious one, Showalter writes with a sparkling humor that keeps the story light without losing poignancy. Shelley MosleyCopyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
