It might be a sham to his boss, but it's all too real to him.
Administrative assistant Jonah Hollis has nurtured a hopeless crush on his boss, millionaire cattle rancher Lincoln Courtwright, ever since he started working for him. But hope is kindled when Linc and beautiful rodeo star Melissa Cutler break up just weeks before the biggest event of the Dallas social season, the Cattle Baron's Ball, and Linc asks Jonah to accompany him in her place.
Is it all a ploy to make Melissa jealous? Can Jonah fit into Linc's world? It takes some encouragement from his roommates and his best friend, Caylee, for Jonah to agree. Before long, Jonah dares to believe Linc might just feel something for him... until interfering family and a series of misunderstandings threaten his fragile dream of happiness.

Reads like a Harlequin romance from the 1980s. Unrequited love, longing looks, misunderstandings, an evil stepmother, and a quirky supporting cast. An entertaining read for a rainy afternoon. -- lyradora
This is the first time I’ve read Nicki Bennett, but it wont be my last. A wonderful story, very little angst. I really enjoyed Linc and Jonah together. The best part of the book was the actual communication, after the miscommunication. Everyone jumps to conclusions, but it’s the communication and actions afterwards that count. I really respect that story went that direction...yes it could have drug the story out longer if they continued to not talk, but thankfully that didn’t happen. This definitely fits the theme of Dreamspun Desires. What a wonderful treat. And I loved the supporting cast of characters.
