Another mercenary heroine.March 30 2007

Typical HR cack. Blair Devereaux is seeking justice for his innocent uncle who died in prison while waiting trial on embezzlement charges. But the story is told from the POV of the daughter of the man who really stole all the money. Poor Blair has fallen in love with this woman, Courtney. There is something rather nasty about females who remain wilfully ignorant when there are criminals in the family. Courtney also has a brother who's incapable of holding down an honest job and tries to get her 'to be nice' to his slimy friends. The good thing about this romance is that while Courtney generally treats Blair like something horrid on the sole of her shoe, he often manages to outsmart her. But Blair's real attraction to Courtney is that he's rich and can afford to keep her in the style she had when young. Fairly standard HR heroine. The story is quite well written and just for once the heroine isn't dragging along a tame boyfriend she dumps for the rich guy. Enjoyable with no PMS. But Blair should've fallen in love with a much nicer female.
