Ms Quinn has always been a favorite author of mine; and until recently I did not realize that I had missed her very first novel. So I picked it up and was rapt from the very first.

When Natasha steps into the office of her new boss for the very first time, she finds him in a very compromising picture on top of his desk with a woman who was supposed to be interviewing him. So Natasha puts her foot down and sets up conditions in order for her to feel comfortable with the situation. You see, Damon is charismatic, sexy, bad-boy, egotistical and just plain… Read more
