My Review:
Fast book = Fast review.

Flat out, this was a fast, enjoyable contemporary read. Even though the word count is low (like 15,000 words) this story didn't seem short-changed at all. The story takes place over a month's time and I felt like the romance really worked. They waited and let the feelings develop before the sex did. Add to that the fact that this is a holiday story and it was just perfect. I loved the elements of the romance although they were fairly predictable for this genre (super-wealthy hero hiding who he is so that the heroine falls for who he really is and not his wealth). For me, this all worked.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
