Pure Enjoyment! Texas Sass and Class! I loved the premise of this story. A rich tycoon who gets taken down a notch by a savvy Texas secretary who appears to be nothing more than a girl working for a living. Their lively banter sparkles throughout the book and the sparks ignite a sizzling romance.Ms. Miranda gets them together on the first page and lets the fun begin with a charity auction in which the tycoon wins the secretary. Turns out the tycoon has had a thing for her for a while but never acted on it. He's never thought they had much in common and they definitely didn't travel in the same circles. But when the rather "plain" woman turns into a ravishing beauty at the auction he sees her in a completely different light. This is a fun, entertaining read that is perfect for the beach or for moments when you simply want to unwind from a busy day. This first full length attempt by Ms. Miranda hits a home run. I look forward to other releases by her.

Pass this book over

It's unfortunate that I spent money to read this. Writing, characters, and plot left much to be desired. At its best, the book was cringe-worthy and campy; at its worst, it was melodramatic and flat. If you're looking for a light, fun read, I'd highly suggest passing on...

    good light read

    This is a quick read which is great for a change in pace after working on heavier stuff. The plot can be predictable but I still enjoyed it.

    Enjoyable read

    Enjoyed the story. There were some parts that could have gone more indepth but overall it had a nice flow. The story played out nicely. Not to long or to short. I think the plot had good twists and turns to keep the reader flipping the pages.

    This was a very good story. The language would offend very few people, and the romantic tension is good without being too graphic.

    It was fun to have some local legends added to the story, but the mix-up toward the end was a bit predictable.

    I enjoyed the book, and was able to read it quickly.
