A week at a dilapidated mansion planning the restoration of Victorian era gardens was a prime contract for landscaper Luke Wells.
Finding his employer and her irritating, curvy niece already overseeing the packing of moldering antiques and planning some ghost hunting was disconcerting.
The heat of desire, the emergence of a scandalous secret from the past…
Talk about unexpected…
Pure joy, laughter, giggles, scares, and curves - the trademarks of a great Angela Verdenius novel that makes you smile even on the most difficult day.
Luke and Mikki are such a fun duo to be around. The sparring, banter, and repartee is brilliant and so entertaining. They spark, they flicker and flare, and they have no idea of it themselves, others around them are just having a hoot waiting for them to realize, that they are meant for each other, the perfect match made in heaven.
I liked the tidbits of history that was put into the story. The ghost hunting that every now and then comes up in the author's books is always done with humor, glee, and curiosity.
The suspense or danger that suddenly came to the picture was a delightful surprise and the built up on the mystery was rather intense.
I love how often on the books the author writes, even though it is a new series, the people from the previous ones can suddenly visit or have a prominent part in the story. I love the connection, the continuity that it creates.
I am a huge fan of the author and her BBW books. I love that there's well-written romance were big beautiful women find the happily ever after, are admired, cared for, and cherished. These books are something that I return to, have read most of them several times, and always enjoy them immensely. Luke and Mikki are no exception
