Annotation: Hillary Baxter has become a top NY model after leaving her home town in Kansas three years ago. She left not in search of fame or glamour, but for a chance to be successful on her own. With her striking features and photogenic smile, modeling seemed to be the way to go. She gets a big job working for Brett Bardoff, the owner of a huge magazine. Brett is good looking, rich, confident, arrogant, and intimidating. Hillary a small-town girl is finding it hard to resist the charm of her new employer, who is leaving her defenseless. But as Brett discovers the innocence behind Hillary's world famous face, it will be Brett who is left defenseless.
This is a sweet, simple story about Hillary Baxter, a New York model with small-town values and Bret Bardoff, the magazine owner who hires her for a fashion photography project. I like the way Nora Roberts started the characters off on the wrong foot, it makes the story interesting from the beginning. In this case model Hillary is bad-mouthing magazine owner Bret Bardoff to the handsome stranger that has walked into her photographer's studio, realizing too late that the stranger is the famous Brett Bardoff. Throughout the book she tries to keep the relationship strictly professional, even though they both want more. There are a few obstacles and they both fight the pull, but the ending is very romantic.
