Matt Deveonport is the stereotypical successful business executive -- cold , hard, serious but deadly handsome. Flora is the temporary replacement of his Personal secretary. She was unlike all his employees who would quake and quiver in nervousness in front of him . Instead she was outspoken and impertinent, which was a refeshing experience for the almighty Matt. Unforeseen circumstances and mutual convenience made them agree to a charade to pose as a couple. Flora needed to show off Matt as her lover in order to save face in front of an ex-boyfriend. Matt needed her to pose as his wife in order to ward off the efforts of his desperate mother at match-making. They certainly never imagined that such strong chemistry and sexual attraction would develop between them. There are hurdles to overcome before the happy ending. The story is not original but the writing is good and full of sexual tension that keeps you turning the pages until the end.I think this book charming and enjoyable.
